Soaring On High…

The Philadelphia Eagles were triumphant.

The underdogs came from behind and smashed the popular kids into the dirt. This is the year of the Earth Dog, after all.

My elation almost matches how I felt when my Seahawks finally brought the Vince Lombardi trophy home to the Pacific Northwest, back in February of 2014.

Time for some songs with eagles in the title or the lyrics.

Tom Brady’s sad face and hanging head made me jump for joy.

Happy Earth Day 2013!!!

Aaaaahhhh…it’s Earth Day! Time for a celebration of the natural beauty that surrounds us – well, it surrounds those of us who are fortunate enough to live close to nature! I love wandering in my backyard and tending to the flowers and my herb garden – the greenhouse is great for starting seedlings and transplanting larger plants. The full moon is later this week, which is the perfect time to do some more potting and transplanting. I have four plants that are begging for larger homes, LOL!

I was able to mow the lawn last week (FINALLY!) and we’ll have at least three, perhaps four, days of nice weather coming up so I’ll trim the yard again – get it all level this time! I’ve filled the fire pit with branches and other clippings so it’ll be time to have a little bonfire soon…

The birds have been active: there’s a family of crows nearby, and seagulls enjoy roosting on the distant rooftop of our closest neighbours. Hummingbirds buzz about on a regular basis; robins bounce on the grass as they hunt for worms in the morning dew, and a couple of eagles circled and soared over our shop the other day – they were magnificent! Some geese went honking past yesterday…I love the solitude and seclusion of the yard – it’s my sanctuary and it’s nice, quiet, and peaceful. Everyone should make their personal dwellings a place of relaxation, no matter how small they might be. Even a tiny SRO flat can be made delightful if you know how to decorate properly and have the right furnishings!     😎

On a side note, I guess there’s supposed to be some sort of internet blackout today, but I see no evidence of participation! Go figure…I shouldn’t be surprised, though, given modern society’s penchant for jumping on a social-media-driven bandwagon, then jumping off at the next corner to see how many blog-hits they got from ‘tweeting’ their allegiance. Nobody stays loyal to anything anymore…but, I digress – it’s Earth Day and I’m relaxing in peace and quiet. No traffic, no air or noise pollution, no city suffocation…just birds, bears, and deer! It’s lovely…
