Recent good stuff:

     Getting something on eBay I'd had a search going for around 10 months. Always a great feeling to be able to take one of my searches down because I found what I wanted!

     Finished my art project Saturday and had fun making header and sidebar images and three versions of wallpapers for Frogmouth, work pc, and Tertius.

     I almost didn't go for my walk at Afton State Park this morning, as it was around 63 already (17 C) and close to the hottest I can tolerate walking in. But I went, though I only did 5.5 miles (8.8 km) before I was miserable and my feet were so swollen from the heat that I wasn't enjoying a single step. But I certainly got rewarded! Saw/heard my first 2012 song sparrows, meadowlarks, vulture, turkeys, yellow-shafted flicker, and even a brief glimpse of a pileated woodpecker! No eagles this time, but my treat was the bluebirds. Spotted a male, then a female a minute later, and managed to get blurry shots of them both. Then ten minutes later I got a much better shot of another gorgeous male. Just a lovely treat!

Where do we go to see the art project? Great pic of the male bluebird.

About the weather you know it will cool down soon. It is way too early
to stay this warm. We are only in the 50's today and it feels chiller
than that.

I finished it too soon! So I'm not putting it up until I reach the milestone I made it to celebrate. =)

I'm really happy with how gorgeous he looks in that photo. They're hard to get, because they're quite shy.

I sure hope so! They're forecasting a hotter than normal April too. And four days in a row of almost-80 in March is way too much for me! Hopefully it really will start cooling down on Tuesday and get us some rain. Got pretty severe fire danger in parts of the state because of all this drought and heat, and the grass never got flattened by the snow, either.

I wish I was visiting you NOW! ;)
