Rainy Day

I love the way the rain drops catch
 on the net that protects our fish
 from the Heron and the Kingfisher.

 One day I saw the Heron
 standing on top of  the rocks
 peering hungrily at the goldfish
 in their winter “hover”
at the bottom.

  Such easy pickings when the pond is open.

IMG_6638a While the sun is shining the net
 is nearly invisible…
which explains why I’ve twice
 seen the Kingfisher diving
from the sky,
 only to be bounced back
up into the air.
  I was worried that it was hurt.
 But it flew up and scolded
loudly from a perch
high in the maple tree.
When the rain turned to mist
 I took the three grandchildren out
 to blow bubbles.

The moist air has a good influence
 on the stability of the bubble.

 It gives the kids opportunity to chase the rainbow balls ...
as the slight breeze carries them away.

Z-bub created some huge ones.

When one floated near,
I could see the tree
above, me, and
Z-bub in mirror image.
(Z-bub actually is in
there twice!)

So of course I took
an impromptu and
slightly  blurry picture.

One Sentence Saturday

Did  Punxsutawney Phil's prediction send old man winter back to your front door?




Robin @ Pensive is actually hosting a One Sentence Saturday.

First of the Month–Watch Them Grow

Joining in with another First of The Month  with another photo of the three grand children that I have followed on here for the past year.  (Jan at Murrieta 365 still has the Meme going strong!)

We had nine grandchildren at our house the week before Christmas so we bought a one size fits all gift:  Wii.
It was a good choice.

This afternoon when Z-bub got off the bus, I allowed the boys to play some Mario Brothers.  It suits them to a T!



 And Mizelle?  Well, she watches, and then begs to play.  I will have to find an easier and more age appropriate game for her.  Any suggestions for a 2 1/2 year old?
