Where to begin....

I don't know where to begin...but it is not like there is a lot to tell.

I will start with these pics from yesterday.  We had just got home and I got out of the Rav4, and first noticed a hawk.  Alright!  So happy to see it.  Then I saw a Turkey Vulture, but then way, way on past it, pretty high up, I saw this!  It was so far I could not see that it has the white head, but just recognized it by how it flies how it looks in flight.  It was an overcast day and these were the best I could get.

Then Roger says "Is there two?"...I was trying to hold my camera on the one and had sure not noticed another and said no but when I brought my camera  and looked up, yes, there were two!  Just made our day.   BTW, both photos are cropped pretty heavily from the original.

I have finished 8 more of the appliqued leaves but haven't taken a photo.  I suppose they are pretty boring to people that don't quilt.  I need another design wall to hang them on since daughter and I have the current project on it that I cannot show.

I have been getting messages from people over on my other blog that sometimes they try to comment, and they get the page where they get the CAPTCHA thing...I wondered has anyone else had problems like this?  These people have their photo blogs on another site other than blogger.  I have had word verification turned off for ages and ages, and I just moderate comments that are on posts a few days old. 

ALSO, sometimes I get the message that someone has left a comment, on this blog, but never on Time Stand Still.  And on this one, I got them for a day or two recently and now back to not getting them at all.  And I quit getting the notice that a comment needed to be moderated ages and ages ago.


I just read Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder by Caroline Fraser.  It took me forever, and I do mean forever.  So long I am embarrassed to tell how long I think it took.  Has anyone here read it?  It has really left me sort of stunned, and I don't really know what I think even.    It sure was not what I expected in so many ways.

On the other hand I am reading :
The Dark Heart  A True Story of Greed, Murder, and an Unlikely Investigator by Joakim Palmkvist....I got it free a while back.  It is set in Sweden and I was afraid it would be hard to follow, but instead it is hard to stop once I read a page.
How about a fun shot?  A two headed swan!

It isn't of course, but if you expand the view you can see that it is two side by side.   I did not know I had got this till I downloaded the pics and were looking through them.
