It's still Friday "RIGHT"

I know I am a bit late for the party.
But better late than miss it all together.

The Party I'm talking about is Nancy's
Random Five Friday.


1.  Last week we got to have Myle's (my grandson) for 3 days before
his parents (my daughter and SIL) picked him up.
We had so much fun with him.
We must have watched the movie "CARS" at least 20 times.
Even though its a cute movie, I can go for quite awhile before I see it again.


2.  I got a new Hummingbird feeder.  I didn't put it up right away because
I thought it was too cold to for hummingbirds to be out and about.
But then I heard them buzzing around and decided to put it out.
And we already have two regulars at the feeder.
I will try to get some shots of them soon.


3.  I started a 365 on Instagram. Wish me Luck..
My Instagram name is mhplinda.
Stop by and say hi..


4.  We were on a walk last week and we saw an Eagle.
We have seen them a couple of times flying so gracefully over head.
But on this afternoon he was sitting pretty on a tree.
Such an amazing site to see.




5.  Here at the campground we had a brave young couple that
spent 4 nights in a tent.  It has been has been pretty chilly and
windy,  but they seemed to enjoy it.  They put up a tarp to block the wind.
And they had a campfire non-stop.  I guess they are pros at camping in this cold weather.


Well that's all I have for this weeks randomness.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs~

The eagle is such a wonderful treat to see! I'm still waiting for my first of season eagle. I was shocked to have a hummer whiz by my head the other day. It's been downright COLD here. I'm talking 30s and Tuesday it's supposed to be 22. I am not putting nectar out to have it freeze. Poor hummer, though.

TexWisGirl said...

3 days 'soaking up' myles sounds perfect for you. and the eagle sighting is WOW worthy!

Mona Pendleton said...

Love the photos, how wonderful to see an eagle, that really is a dream! I wouldn't like to be camping in a tent, I think I'm too old for stuff like that these days! Hugs, Valerie

Beth Edwards said...

i really amazed at folks that do 365 on any thing ... i wish you well. & determination too! ( :

Lisa Gordon said...

I love "Cars," and I'm so glad that you got to enjoy it with Myles!

Hmmmm....camping. Hard to even think of that now. We had a wind chill yesterday of -25. All I can think about is a warm fire!

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend. xo.

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Wonderful time you had with Myles, happy for you!

S. Etole said...

Sounds like the best of times.

Ana K. said...

It seems that you had a great time…eagle is fantastic!
Happy New year Linda

Carol Blackburn said...

Linda, how cold is it there that you were wondering about the hummingbirds? Can you tell me what you use to attract them? I'd love to put some feeders out this coming spring but I am a novice at this sort of stuff. My usual habit is tossing some bread on the ground. Very simplistic huh.

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Two fabulous photos, thanks for sharing.

Becca said...

Hi Linda! That's SO cool you got a shot of an eagle during your stay here! Aren't they just so lovely to watch fly? I'd like to see a baby one sometime! The 365 on IG is fun, but some days better than others for me…I probably will slack off and miss some! Lol Lovely green photo too. Chat with you later!

Lynn said...

my good gracious, what a stupendous shot of that hawk-took my breath away; he is just so regal!

Davi said...

LOL I know what you mean Linda, my grandson would watch the movie Fox and the Hound and Charlotte over so many times I think I knew it word for word! What a treat to have him though:) Love the eagle shot, they are always so stately. Hope you are having a great weekend and staying warm. It is 72 here today and a day with no wind finally, amazing!

amanda | wildly simple said...

No hummingbirds here, Eagles are about the only winter birds we see!
And no winter camping either.. it's been about 35 below zero here!
I would love some west coast weather. :)
Have a great weekend, Linda!

Charlene said...

beautiful pics Linda!! I'm so glad you got to spend tome with your grandson!!!! Destiny is 4 months along and I can't wait to see my new grandson!!! Shes due in June!! Happy New Year my friend!

Ida said...

How well I remember the (Cars) movie as that was Coleen's favorite when she was about 3-4 and we had to watch it over & over & over. - Have you seen, Planes yet? Very cute movie.

Wow a Bald Eagle shot, I'm so jealous. How amazing it would be to see one that close.

Camping in a tent in this weather...crazy!

Netty said...

The photos are great Linda, especially that wonderful eagle. So pleased you are enjoying yourself and having quality time with Myles.
Happy New Year dear friend, hugs Annette x

Sarah Huizenga said...

I love your random bits and piees of your life. You made me laugh with your story about Myle's and Cars.... you could call it a bit of a "Cars" overload. The phoho of that eagle is stunning!
I have not been around much in 2013; it's good to be here again now that studying is over. ( and having my dilpomas :)...) I will be back soon. Alsways great to be here! Hugs!

I just can't believe there are hummies out up there at this time off year. How amazing! Speaking of amazing that eagle is incredible. We've seen some in the wild and captivity. They are gorgeous and majestic birds. Hugs!

Jill Foley said...

I saw a hummingbird on a recent walk - I was surprised they were still out. Also saw a beautiful eagle, but didn't have my camera with me!!

I'll look for you on instagram. I'm fiddlejill

yyam said...

Haha...I so understand what it's like to watch something over and over again.

Oooh...can't wait to see your hummingbird photos!

Happy 2014 my friend!

Ros Crawford said...

Sounds like life is good and what fabulous shots!

Audrey Pettit said...

Awww, what a wonderful Friday Five! Love all your happy stories and photos. Those campers were pretty darn brave. I don't think I could stand to camp in that kinda weather! :)

Our Neck of the Woods said...

I hope you can get some good hummingbird shots! I need to get a feeder to put out this spring as well. I don't know if I could camp in the cold. I think I'd be too grumpy haha.

Nancy Claeys said...

Oh my I can't imagine seeing hummers this time of year -- what a treat! And how fun to have your lil' boy with you for 3 whole days. I'm so envious!

Lori said...

Just fabulous! What fun with Myles. Lauren's movie was Cinderella - over and over again! Happy New Year!

Deanna said...

Oh to see Eagles that close must be heaven. My granddaughter's boyfriend lives in Dixon, IL and they have eagles frequently. I am begging to go, but right now it is a might chilly for tromping in the wilds to catch a site of an eagle. Stay warm my friend, as always lovely, lovely images!!

Bunch of Barrons said...

Wow! That eagle is fantastic!

Deb Hickman said...

Happy New Year, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Gorgeous photo's . X

Colleen Dietrich said...

Camping in a tent at this time of year isn't for the faint of heart! I would never do that. ;)

Love your pix, Linda. That evergreen is SO beautiful.

Glad you got to have Myles for a little bit. Funny what you said about the movie Cars. LOL

Pride In Photos said...

I just can't imagine a couple camping in a tent at this time of year...they need a badge of honor♥ Happy 2014.

Sylvia said...

Fortunately it is not Friday any longer! My last week was almost over powering! I am not used to this busy of life especially after a somewhat hectic and not enjoyable Christmas. Hubby is in Mexico this week on business, so except for orders, I am getting back to a better routine! Even the cats are enjoying some peace! Linda, I always enjoy the beauty in your photo's. Glad you also got to have Myles for some love time! Happy Wednesday!

The Crafty Laydee said...
