Falling softly into Autumn, then time to move on…
Love this place
Great time enjoying the autumn colors in Greenville and visit friends.
And slowly walking along the river this next one is another favorite spot.
Just thinking about this makes me smile. Easy answer for me, and easy to show you.
I was in Greenville, SC . It had been three months since my last visit…thanks to the exorbitant cost of gas. Not having a job means I have to be very frugal. I used to take a day trip, maybe every month or six weeks and the occasional weekend for special festivals. It will probably be another few months before I can get there again
Had a great time spending quality time with various friends and attending a special event on Wednesday where we watched the live feed of a TEDGlobal 2011 event http://conferences.ted.com/TEDGlobal2011/program/guide.php in Scotland. Enjoyable as usual.
When I arrived back late last night it was too dark to see if the doves were still in the nest. But in the light of day, nothing. I am guessing the babies flew away while I was gone.
See baby between the leaves
This is another one taken before leaving on my trip.
I was sad that I had to cancel my trip to Greenville this weekend for the art festival. Just the gas to drive there and back would cost me $60 which I just cannot spend that right now. I am even careful where I drive around here locally…not too far.
So this weekend I am spending quiet time in prayer and reflection here at the house…NO TELEVISION.
I DID HAVE A SURPRISE THIS MORNING…
This morning I noticed a MESS AT THE END OF THE WALKWAY to my house..
“IT IS YOU”
MAKING YOUR NEST…
The nest is in fairly low branches RIGHT ABOVE my sidewalk. She is eats lots of the berries from the tree and poops all over my car and parking spots.
Had to take my car to the car wash and will not be parking under the tree for a while.
What was really cool this morning when I saw her out there, I went out the door with the camera and she never flew away. Just went about her business gathering stuff for her nest. Even looked up at me a couple of times.
