A little randomness...

First of all, what is with the 'I am not a robot' thing at the bottom of our comments...even though I have my comments set to no word verification, and moderation only after the post is a few days old, I still have the 'I am not a robot.'  Some blogs don't even have this, and others have it PLUS word verification.

I did make a 'testing' comment on my own blog, and did not check the 'I am not a robot'  and it appeared immediately in my comments.
Just talked to Sarah...Lorelei's school was cancelled two days last week because of the bitter cold weather we had.  One of the days was Sarah's day off, and the other day she went to this program at the YWCA...or maybe it was the YMCA....and they kept them busy.  Lorelei had a ball.  Now she wants to follow a pattern....she wants to go to the 'Y' one day and school two days...or else the 'Y' two days and the school one day.   In case you don't know, she is all about patterns.

When she colors, sometimes she follows a pattern...and other things she wants to follow a pattern but for the life of me I cannot think of examples.  Just know she does like patterns.
I did a post of an eagle we saw Sunday up in Parke County at the tail waters of the Cecil M. Harden Lake.  Well, I was sitting at the computer this afternoon, and I am always glancing to see what birds are at the feeders, and also glance around to see what else is going on.  I glanced out, and guess what I eagle.  They have this lazy way of circling around, and if you get the right angle to see their body profile, they remind me of a big old B-52. Nothing around here has that profile.  

I quick ran outside, and first saw there was two...then saw what I thought was a third...ran in to get my camera and could at first only see two...and both were juveniles.  I ran back in to get something on my arms and ran back out and there was the third...and it has the white head and tail!  Not that I really needed to see it to know for sure the others were eagles...
Anyway, click on this one for sure to expand the view...and yes, this was taken from my front porch.  And it is cropped.
Neither are very sharp, but I was clicking just to make sure I got some sort of shot.  I still cannot believe we saw three and two were juveniles.  So far, I have only ever seen one juvenile at a time.

Speeding along

There are several Amish families that live in Parke County...this one was traveling along pretty fast.  It was one of our 'warmer' days, but I bet it was still cool to be traveling in this fashion.  I had not even set anything on my camera...this is definitely not sharp.  But I still like it.

It is 10ºF here this morn.  Probably colder earlier.  There was quite a big frost when I got up an hour or so ago.  I am sitting looking at empty bird feeders.  So that is one job that needs to be done.  And I am sure I can come up with a load of laundry...and I need to get a quilt top sandwiched and ready to quilt, but not sure I will.  I don't have the right color thread to quilt it with, so will either have to order on line or make a trip to the quilt show over in Paris.

Anyway, hopefully I will get some visiting in during this day.
