I'm back....

sort of.   It will take me a while but I will start slow and return visits from my last couple of posts. Instead of my usual Monday recipe post, I thought today I would share photos I took of a few sparrows I was watching while sitting in the passenger seat at our local supermarket.  Cute little things and no matter what kind of birds they are I always find them entertaining, and very relaxing.






















I found this quote from Dr. Seuss,  a lovely one to end a post.

"Life is too short to wake up 
In the morning with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right,
Forgive the ones who don't,
And believe that everything 
Happens for a reason.
If you get the chance, take it.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said it would be easy,
They just promised it would be worth it."

Dr. Seuss was a very smart and wise man.

Welcome back. You have been missed.
I love the sparrows, subtle charmers.
And yes, Dr Seuss was indeed a wise man. A very wise man.

Lovely series of shot of the Sparrows. For me, better than a recipe.

Welcome back, Denise. The squirrel really looks like he's smiling to see you back.

Loved the signs of spring -- bird cuteness.

Sandra said...

I love that quote and this is my first time reading this one.. perfect. and those birds are so sweet and i assume they can't read the signs about no parking or standing. LOL

Donna said...

Oh I hope you are well Denise and that quote is perfect...a perfect mantra for life. Sparrows are sweet birds and they just sing their hearts out.

Welcome back, Denise.

I'm muddled now. At first I thought the birds were sparrows but then I saw the beaks and decided they looked more like Finch beaks, yet the plumage told me otherwise.

Barbara Rogers said...

Good to see you here again. Great photo fun with simple but precious birds. You can capture photos anywhere!

I love those last two birdie profiles and the one above with all the empty space between them. Very peaceful/quiet feeling. And I loved the Seuss quote too! :)

Linda Kay said...

Denise, all sorts of rhymes come to mind when thinking of Dr. Seuss. He was really a great writer for children. Such a cute little birdie you found.

Don Wood said...

Welcome back. Missed you and was happy to see your blog pop on on Feedly! . I do take blog-breaks every once in a while and I know it is hard to get back in the groove.

Those little guys are doing a good job enforcing those no parking rules -- watching from on top of the signs for any scofflaws!

Betsy Adams said...

Welcome back, my Friend. I have been thinking about you---and sincerely hope that you are okay. Love the Dr. Seuss quote.. One of my fav's.

Big HUGS,
Betsy
