PROJECT 365...amidst the migraines and bird grain





Joining Sara and the others...

This 22nd week of 2011 has been a week of many migraines for this blogger...I can NEVER figure out what brings them on; but these have been haunting me, sneaking up on me and then deciding to stick around for a while.  I didn't even think of my camera until Thursday.  Seems hard to believe it's been a year...
 ...yes, a year ago today, skoot was on her way to the arena for her class's graduation ceremony. 

Since then, I guess you could say I've 'gone to the birds'...emptynest Mom's instinct to watch over something, anything, just to keep myself busy. 
5/26  Thursday afternoon the bird feeder got VERY busy...I believe they were getting some food because they knew the storms were coming (cardinals, chickadees)


and our state bird, the brown thrasher...this is the FIRST time I've captured one in a photo
Thursday evening blew in with thunderstorms and some rough weather just south of us; a couple of people were killed by a falling tree down close to our governor's mansion.





5/28, Saturday brought a
a beautiful sunset (I had been watching the NCAA women's softball super regionals and the camera man zeroed in on the 'Georgia sunset' from Athens, so I quickly ran outside to see if ours mimicked it...not exactly, but it was still pretty)
Praying all our graduates begin to embrace their responsibilities as young adults and take on their next God-led endeavors...may they each keep that relationship first and foremost.

Jer. 33:3 "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."

Blessings,

Great sunset pictures - hope your feeling better.

that reminds me that I need to get some pictures of the birds nesting under our deck!!

So what happened at your daughters school? did they just end up with the grade they had when the tornado went through? how does that work? And will she be able to go back in the fall?

praying for no migraines this week!!

So many bloggers are posting similar items, and in each one I can't help but think "how rich are our lives because of these simple glories". Thank you for sharing yours!

P.S. I haven't seen anyone posting a sunset to equal yours, though :)

Glorious sunset! They always remind me of a description in a kids' book: it's what happens when the sky is having pink and purple fits :)

I have a terrible time getting bird shots because my camera has this little delay before it actually takes the photo. So I just enjoy bird pictures vicariously through the rest of you :) Same thing with squirrels and other wild life.

Hope you find relief soon from the migraines. I can empathize since I have a lot of trouble with them too. They've gotten much more frequent and intense since the menopause hit. *sigh* Hoping things will improve with time. Praying for you!

I love snapping pics of birds as well and SO don't look forward to my nest emptying :(

Beautiful verse and great reminder.

I love the birds and the sunset. Sunsets always remind me how great our God is.

Very good segue from empty nest to bird pics. The real life transition may not be so smooth.
This is a year of serious storms.
Does atmospheric pressure have anything to do with migraines?
I pray for your relief.

Excellent prayer for those who are graduating & heading into the world of "life"

... hope your migraines have eased up :(
