Pleasure For This One

First pleasure

My granddaughter's in New York have called yesterday and today.
First my Sarah
and then a few minutes ago
My, Jessica
the soon to be bride.

Then a note from my youngest daughter that my youngest granddaughter is now using the word
"shaloha" for a salutation :)  Where in the world did she come up with this - always making up
different words that make me smile.   Sounds tropical...

I do believe
the spot of orange deep in the woods may be
a Scarlet Tanager
What an accomplishment
if I can get a photo...

Soon
I will walk the path deep into the woods.

I might add
the pleasure of reading "The Invention of Wings"
continues
75% finished
and will read again in the future.

I come here for smiles.
Am never disappointed.
I think you would enjoy Barbara Kingsolver's Flight Behavior.
About butterflies. I'm loving it.

from the urban dictionary:

shaloha

Jewish Hawaiins use it as an acknowledgment that can be used to say hello, goodbye, or peace . a synthesis of shalom and aloha which are synonymous.

Good morning Ernestine...
Snowy here this morning. A nuthatch and junco just jumped on my feeder. The colorful birds are scarce in winter around here...lucky you to have seen this bird.
Have a nice weekend.

Todays technologies do come in handy to keep up with our family and friends.

The internet gives us the ability to share not only words, we may add pictures too.

Blogging is another way to be connected.

Glad to see you recommend this book - I really enjoyed "The Secret Life of Bees" and "The Mermaid Chair" by her. I like your granddaughter's greeting.
