Circle of Life

Sometimes you just have to do what seems ridiculous when you're in the doldrums.And, thank goodness, that is just what I did today. My dear friend, Laura, invited me to do a quick run down the river today to see the nesting birds. There are many geese that have built lovely homes and filled them with eggs, waiting to be hatched. Unfortunately, many of the nests are too low and when the river begins to run high, the eggs will be washed away. All part of the circle of life, I suppose.

We also saw several pelicans floating along, waiting for a fish to swim by. I was getting pictures when I scared the pelicans. They flew into the geese, who weren't happy. The geese flew away and landed near some ducks. They were all squawking. It was quite funny. Sorry, but I'm afraid I've disrupted the whole ecosystem of that stretch on the Henry's Fork. Maybe that's part of the circle of life, too. It was well worth it, though. I LOVE kayaking.

Life is Good especially on the river.

April Fools Day Fun

Never been a big April Fools Day lover. Usually not enough time to put into the "fooling". But, I decided today we could have some fun with it.  Since we had the day off it was perfect.With these cupcakes we could save time by serving dinner and dessert all in one. DELICIOUS!!! But, the cupcakes look so good we can't eat them. We just stare at them. Maybe they look a little too real and we can't possibly eat a meatball off of a cupcake. What do you think?
Mashed Potatoes and Gravy with a pat of Butter

Peas and Carrots

Meatball and Spaghetti

Life is Good - especially with a day off here and there.
