I have been sick for awhile and have not had the energy to blog. I am feeling better now and have decided to put this blog up today. I had a very wonderful encounter with Nature yesterday. It was a wonderful surprise to me and my hubby. We went to work and it was raining very hard and usually when it rains we get signed off and go home. But today, our truck needed us to go with them to Memramcook for a power outage. When we got to the back road, we found a big branch had fallen over the hydro lines and needed to be removed. It was a very big branch with lots of smaller branches on it, and because of the rain it was soaked and was very hard to cut thru. While Neil and Jim tried to remove the branch, Dave and I watched the not so busy road. We decided to have some breakfast like we do every day and when I opened my zip bag to get my muffin out, a small chick-a-dee decided to have breakfast too. The next thing we see is allot of chick-a-dees landing on my hand and looking at us. It was so wonderful to feel their small bodies on my hand and the feel of their tiny feet was so incredible it was like holding a piece of heaven in your hand, even one little guy tried to bite my finger but I did not care at the moment in time. One little bird even landed on hubbies hand too. It was such an inspiring feeling to have them fly into you and not be afraid that they would be hurt in anyway. That is a feeling I will never forget for the rest of my life. We did not have a camera to take photo's but the pictures of that day will be edged in my mind forever.
I have seen a number of Robins this past week and all our snow is gone so I do think Spring is on it's way as soon as April leaves us. I have done some stitching and will show you now.
I am doing a small chicken for a penpal friend and this is it to be sewn up and then I have crochet a lace to go around. I is just pinned on right now.
Below is a anniversary stitching that I am doing for my oldest daughter for her anniversary in July.
Well, guys I have nothing else to show so I will leave you now. Thanks to you all for coming to visit me and I hope not to be gone to long next time but I was so drained I had no strength to do anything. Hugs to all. Bye for now.
