Meet Jack

This here is Mr. Union T. Jack who arrived on my doorstop yesterday. He came from Cowes on the Isle of Wight The lovely miss Kai sent him as a birthday gift. Isn't he the cutest thing. I decided Jack will be my travel bear, he get s to go on all my trips from here on,

Kai also sent me a piece of Cornwall, a rock and some shells, they'll be going on my altar with other treasures. Kai, you are the best.

We went to see if we could see the Owl babies but they were too hidden. You don't want to get too close and disturb the mother so we are very cautious about that. I did see these though. They are a pair of Sandhill Cranes, quite a majestic bird.

Thanks for all your wonderful wishes I am feeling so much better now. You know I have been getting birthday greetings for over a month now and its pretty awesome. In addition to getting the presents from my sister and Kai, I got my Kitchen Aid mixer this week too. Plus we had ordered new silverware and it arrived. You know I could get used to getting gifts all the time. I have been able to manifest quite a few things that I have been wanting to have.

Now I am thinking of the garden and manifesting a beautiful space. I was going to get some teenagers who need to do a service project done to get the rocks out of the space but then Dave said he'd do it. Sometimes he surprises me. Now I want to measure it again (I misplaced the info from the last time) and do a diagram and decide what plants will actually work in the space. It has a large shade area so I am not sure what will grow in there. I thought I would put a bench there and maybe a small table but still want some plants too. I am looking at it from the end as the secret suggests. I am seeing myself sitting in this awesome space just enjoying the beauty.

Thanks for posting your gorgeous birthday treasures!!! Kitchen Aids are the best, they make wicked mashed potatoes. Try it, you'll love drinking them from a straw! LOL
Your Kai shells are great, and the bear is sweet too, bears in sweaters make me swoon!

Oh what a treasure Jack is - he will make a fabulous traveling companion! The rock and shells are treasures too, the rock DOES look heart shape.That Kai is SO thoughtful. I love my beach box from her.
Ah the lingering birthday - there is more to come.REALLY!
KitchenAid mixers are great, I gave my old one to my SIL and then a year later got a new one at a sale because it was a discontinued color.
You deserve the perfect garden, it's good you are visualizing it complete.

That pair of Sandhill Cranes are truly magnificent birds elegantly picking their way along. If you have a shady area and want some foliage plants as well as flowers I always go for hostas, there are so many different patterns and colours of green in them. Glad that you are feeling better.
