Share Your Cup #198

We are finally getting some clouds in the sky which I hope will lead to some much needed rain.  I caught the moon just behind some clouds.  We had some rain over night.

A friend mentioned this book a few weeks ago and I asked to borrow it.  This is a good read.  Marie presents a method for tidying up through decluttering and organizing your space.  She presents a quite extreme but effective method.  I quickly was able to clear some clothes from my closet.  The question to ask is "Does this object bring me joy?"  I wholehearted support the idea to surround yourself with objects that bring you joy.  I find I have less trouble keeping on top of my kitchen now that it has many things I love.

These were taken during my first trip to the wetlands this year.  

Mrs. Robin came to check me out and I got a good shot. 

This is a Ruddy Duck with that distinctive blue bill.

Canada Geese were feeding.

The Red Wing Blackbird has been very difficult to photograph. This shot turned out really well especially with his wings just opening.
