Good Day Sunshine!

Lucky Windsor! Yesterday and today are beautiful days and bring on spring fever! Unseasonably warm, the weather channel says (60), but I'll take it. A few days ago, Mr. Cardinal stopped by. Last summer was filled with his beautiful singing. This year, he's brought the Mrs. with him! Isn't it amazing that in nature the female of the species tends to be drab while the male is the colourful one? She had tinges of red but not the vibrancy of the Mr.

TOM came by yesterday morning, right on schedule, might I add. I barely felt the usual pre-symptoms and think it's because of the exercise and better eating. Day 2 is usually worse (I feel like I swallowed a lake :) but the scale says I'm the same, yippee. I was worried there for a bit and thought I'd keep track of this month to see if the usual 2-5 comes on. Tuesday morning should be VERY INTERESTING!

Thanks for the well wishes (my pulled muscle feels much better) and for the support on the 10 pound April challenge. Cammy said it right--do I have what it takes to do what is needed? Them's fightin' words, Miss Cammy and I promise right now to do what it takes. YEE HAW!

Enjoy your Sunday and may it be as beautiful and serene in your part of the world as it is in mine.

That's a beautiful bird... I've never seen anything like that here.

You can do 10 pounds in one month! I'll cheer you on!

I'm glad you're enjoying the nice spring weather. And I love the pic! I love bird-watching, and cardinals are some of my favorite birds. They're just so bright and pretty!

Good luck with the challenge! You can do it! :)
