Visitors in our Yard

I appreciate the deer visiting our yard

Today I Appreciate….

  • Visitors in our Yard – We had 4 visitors in our yard today – whitetail deer.

In my office I sit right next to a sliding glass door… Carol saw the deer first and told me… then slowly she went and got me my camera. They aren’t too far from us… and look right in at us from time to time… if we don’t move too fast they will stay and graze.

deer5The two in the top photo above were the youngest, they were a bit smaller and their coat is fuzzy – I would guess they were born late last summer. The other 2 were older – – I’m guessing they were the little one’s Moms.

I’m always thrilled when they come and visit… It is one of the reasons I so appreciate living here.  🙂

What do you appreciate today?

Today I appreciate the return of running water to the kitchen

I appreciate the brilliant sunshine of this day after last night’s spectacular full moon

I appreciate the receding pain in my tooth; thanks to the making peace process I actually believe it’s now gone

I appreciate all the new opportunities and connections that have been presenting themselves… one of my bestest friends ever resurfaced after a year and it looks like we’ll get to see each other when I go to Florida to visit my Albany-best friend (who relocated last year)…. wild they live within an hour of each other and between them hold 40 years of secrets and memories

I appreciate the wonderful morning I spent with my boyfriend. We had breakfast out and then we did our grocery shopping. We work really well as a team. We worked together to bring the bill down. We talked about cooking and the recipes we wanted to try. There was a really nice energy between us.

I appreciate the glorious nap I took this afternoon. I really zonked out and felt refreshed when I awoke.

I appreciate the lovely little birthday party my friends threw for me last night. They actually queened me. We talked about getting older, gaining wisdom and appreciating the process. And there were a lot of laughs!

Oh yes, I do appreciate our visitors. IN the 3 1/2 years here, I have seen a coyote, a black panther, a bobcat, a gazzilion turkeys and several groupings of deer. For the last two Christmas eves, a deer has come as close as the two little ones in the picture to wish us a Merry Christmas!

I appreciate the team of people I work with. This weekend, I did a little extra work. My boss was a phone call away, people are confirming that they will work my shifts while I am away next month, and others are an IM away with information that I need immediately. What a team!

Betwixt and between other things, I watch a little about the Haiti rescue doings. I appreciate the people who put themselves out, some of them in harm’s way, to help or save a stranger. I am overwhelmed at times with the opportunities that will arise out of this. Haiti will be the center of treating amputees, for example. The opportunities for positive change are infinite. It will be awesome to witness the recovery process. I appreciate this opportunity to live and learn from the Haitians.

Laughter and being Queened – that sounds good! 😉

Sounds like we live in the Wizard of Oz — bobcats, and turkeys and deer – Oh My! 😉

I appreciate your photos and sharing your *deer* experience! 🙂

I appreciate that you sent me the link to this post after I mentioned singing to the horses and cows in my childhood. 🙂

I appreciate the beautiful sunshine over the weekend, and this morning ~a welcome change to the much-needed rain we’ve been receiving, of which I am also appreciative!

I appreciate this site and this wonderful idea of focusing on what we appreciate!

Many blessings,
Nancy
