Beautiful British Birds

Not the two legged kind…the feathered ones!

These are all pictures of birds I snapped while walking around London.  Husband and I always notice birds.  We are not birdwatchers, persay, but we do seem to always notice and take note of them.

What a pretty raven!

Lovely English pigeons!

As if they were carrying on a conversation.

A BEAUTIFUL black swan with the most lovely ruffled tail feathers.  I just thought he was amazing.


Thoughtful Thursday: That Charlotte Bronte!

She knew of what she spoke.  Here is a quote from the old gal:

In spirit, I believe, we must have met.

My eyeballs flew open at 4:26a.m. I always feel weird when that happens.  You know like something woke you up? So anyway I look at the clock again  – still 4:26.  I lean over, pick up my laptop off the floor, open it so I can have a little light, grab Husband’s itinerary off the bedside shelf and look up his flight number.  I go to US site and click on Flight Status.  Then put in his flight number 1685.  Flight 1685 arrived in Paris from Tunis at 11:26 Paris time…which is 4:26 our time.  Cool huh? Or creepy.

When Husband called just a minute ago to let me know he was in his seat on his flight coming to the states, I told him about it.  Oddly, he wasn’t really surprised.

So that is your food for thought today.

Do any of you feel that kind of connection with anyone?  Just curious.

I have a busy day ahead of me.  You all have a good one!


Sweltering Summer Heat

It is soooo hot here.  I heard yesterday is was 105 but felt like 120.  I believe it.  I think it is to be a cool 99 today.  Oh boy a cool wave!

My sinuses are still messed up but better.  I honestly think I could have benefitted from a round of antibiotics but OHHH how I hate them.  This being Husband’s first weekend home, kids are gathering at our house for a meal. Our middle son and his wife are in Grand Cayman but we got to visit with them Friday before they left. Everyone else including little Grandson Sam will be here.

Husband decided on a fried chicken recipe he found in the latest issue of Bon Appetit.  It is a wild and crazy “start 24 hours ahead” type recipe.  We got the chicken pieces in the brine and in the frig last night at 11:00 due to the fact that we finally ate supper at 9:00.  We were going to just take a quick cat nap yesterday afternoon and ended up sleeping till 7 pm!! Between his “clock” still being on Tunisian time and my head being completely messed up from antihistamines, we are quite a pair with a most unusual schedule.  We slept on thru last night though so maybe we are getting back to real time.  I think Rachel is making dessert for today – Smore Cupcakes I think.  Anywho, I thought I would check in and I will be sure and post recipes and pictures of today’s culinary adventures.

See you all soon!
