No....I'm not expecting! Hee hee hee...I just wanted to share with you a little pastime I have. Nesting! First I need to:
Check the weather...maybe grab a jacket....or sunscreen, and a large bag for collecting.
I always make sure to wear some comfy shoes...as I never know how far I will have to go...
Walking in the woods is so pleasant and calming when you're stressed. I collect pinecones, twigs, and you never know what kind of photos I'll take!
I watch for empty nests when I'm in my dad's Christmas Trees (Yes, my dad owns a large Christmas Tree farm! ) I check back often to see if they are truly abandoned...and then I collect them when I've determined they won't be missed by any little birdie families. I figure the trees will be cut down eventually, and they'll be destroyed in the process anyway.
Ahh...being out in nature is great....especially when you have been smart enough to pack a picnic lunch and some hot coffee! :)
Sometimes I keep abandoned nests....they look absolutely fabulous under glass....and you can't beat them for giving little gifts in. Can you imagine finding an engagement ring in one of these as a young woman? Or using one to announce you're expecting to some eager grandparents to be? Ahhh....it's all in the presentation!
Well, I just thought I'd give you a little glimpse into my outdoor adventures. I always adore finding a new nest....but the best part is finding one that is actually in use by little birdies. I stand from afar as not to disturb it, and marvel at how they are so talented and industrious. Every nest I see reminds me of how I'm supposed to invest in my home and family....and mostly to remember how my Heavenly Father cares for me....and will continue to provide for me no matter what.
Blessings and Cheers to you lovelies!
