The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest ~ Sir Thomas Moore ~

Thankful {things I love} Thursday...

Me thinks

the moment my legs begin to move,

my thoughts

begin to flow

~Henry David Thoreau~

Ernie and I were happily out walking the other day. We had been out & about doing chores and stopped off to stretch our legs.

I was taking pictures of all the glorious Autumnal colour,

Ernie was patiently waiting as I stopped when something caught my eye :-)

And then something caught BOTH our eyes!

At first I wasn't sure if it was a Crane or a Grey Heron. The markings from a distance were so similar.

We stood and waited for him to fly ... I knew that Cranes few with their necks outstretched and Herons with it pulled back into an S-shape.

Grey Heron it is :-)
Not the best photos ... but ones I thought you'd enjoy seeing.

And then back in the van, before I put the camera away, I just had to take ONE more photo ...
After a day's walk


has twice it's usual value

Tomorrow ... a special someone is Celebrating a Birthday :-)

I can see the love oozing off the page, especially in the last two photos.

That Ernie melts my heart. I can't imagine what he does to you!
