A Good Day – YIPPEE- Friday, September 11, 2015

Today has been a good day. The meds kept the nausea at bay today. (Still feel YUCKY but that is to be expected).
All is good.
I spent hours this morning, looking at photos everyone sent me from yesterday’s tour of Rolling Meadows.
They were awesome. Really awesome.
I will be posting photos of The Restoration Project soon.
The second phrase is starting. Yah.

Yesterday I also was able to get some photos (Not the greatest one because I couldn’t walk far) of the birds in the flooded area just outside of our yard.
Lot’s and lot’s of birds are all over this flooded area.
I saw 9 or 10 Roseate Spoonbills.

Danny and I have been seeing them this past week.
They made ME SMILE because it has been a long time since I have seen any here on Rolling Meadows.
They are back and that is a good thing. They are in a serious decline.

The beautiful Roseate Spoonbill (Platalea ajaja) was overhunted in the 1800’s ย and 1900’s by plume hunters, but it is coming back due to conservation efforts.
They also left their natural areas because the waters were not in good condition any more.
Food was getting scarce.
They are coming back to Bobby’s Cove.
I saw lot’s of them in photos.

I am hoping that this weekend, I can take the MULE or one of the Polaris’s Out to get a closer view of the birds.
It depends on how much rain we get between then. Hopefully NONE. We finally had a day with no rain Thursday.
First time is 2 months.
It depends on ME as well. I want to really bad so……..

They are leaving the Swamp Buggy here for a week so Danny and I can take a private drive around the area.
It’s the smaller of the 2. Easier for me to navigate.
My ankle hurts but I can manage it for short periods.
All I know Is: I can’t just sit here any more.

There is so much going on right now.
Danny has a whole bunch of notes and transcripts from yesterday that I need to organize and upload to The Project.

Everyone will be back in 2 weeks for another look around.

So as you can see my mood has improved from yesterday’s . It was really hard to watch everyone leave here and I couldn’t go with them.

When I get around to UPLOADING them, I have photos from the Windows here. Deer. Turkey’s. Birds.

I did my Bible Study this morning,
Act 5. I will post that soon.
Plus the daily : I Write Because.
I am enjoying doing those. There are just so many reasons why we write. They may differ from day to day.

It’s part of “MY MIX” You Tube has found for me. They have done well.

Now if it would just COOL OFF and Lose The HUMIDITY.
