Oh, Sweet Dove

I've taken a real break from my blog, creating and Etsy.  After my car accident, somehow I kept losing my "umph"!  Then last week I went to Vermont to visit my daughter, her husband and my two sweet grandsons.  I came away without the terrible colds they had and without too many aches.  I feel quieter, healthier and certainly loved.

I think I needed a total break - you know those times when you just want to walk away from almost everything.  I haven't gone into my artroom for quite some time.  Our local sheep and wool festival is coming in two weeks - I always come home with oodles of roving..we'll see this time.  I'm also working on changing my eating habits - had a wonderful cooking lesson while in Vermont - I am finally going to take care of myself and feel deserving of it - ahhh, there's the crux.

So, since there is nothing creative from myself to show you....

Yesterday morning I was in the backyard letting Buster the Beagle do his thing.  I saw what seemd to be a Mother/Daughter act.  One big dove and a smaller one sitting on my fence - they were quiet.  Then, I looked down and saw a broken robin's egg - so blue.  Then I went to get into the car and saw the same small dove perched ontop of it.  I rushed upstairs and got my camera.

I took a picture from the porch stems of my townhouse and then walked closer - he didn't move - I took another picture.   Here they are....

What a lovely way to start the day.

I do have some new ideas for my own creativity which are bubbling up inside --- stay tuned, all is not lost!

HAPPY SPRING - hoping it is somewhat warm where you are and that you are safe and sound!
