I love this idea of a short journal with a picture. I am going to make an effort to do this weekly but you know how life is. Here is the link to join: A Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window...the sun is shining and the greenhouse has moisture on the inside.
I am thinking...about keeping a true lenten.
I am thankful for...the ability to homeschool my children.
From the kitchen...I am sipping a banana strawberry protein powder drink.
I am wearing...my bathrobe.
I am creating...balloon race cars with my children.
I am going...out for a walk around the block.
I am reading...A Journey North by Adrienne Hall...one womans thru hike of the Appalacian Trail with future husband.
I am hoping...I can finish all the laundry today.
I am hearing...Cat Stevens singing.
Around the house...we are doing the big Spring cleaning.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

There were a few activities in the Environmental Education Center for kids.
Teddy made a bird feeder from an old milk jug and got a coloring book.
Docents and volunteers were banding and counting song birds for the count. They had a net set up about the size of a volleyball net to catch the birds. After the birds were banded, weighed and logged in they were released. Both Jose and Ruthy got to release white crowned sparrows.
That day the Refuge had about a zillion Canadian Geese on the water.
We also saw mallards, coots, canvas backs, northern shovelers, gulls and tundra swans. On the shore in the reeds we saw red-winged blackbirds, white- crowned sparrows and heard lots of others that we could not identify.
The weather was beautiful and we had a great time.
