The other day early in the morning we had some bird visitors in the road in front of the house.
I grabbed the camera and I was able to get a few good shots before they spotted me.
The great white Egret stands tall amongst the weeds in the ditch. The white ibis including some brown juveniles flying all around. It was fun to watch them.
I love mornings like this when the wildlife surrounds us and allows me to take its picture.
This project is super easy the drying time is what takes the longest.
Blow up a balloon put it in a bucket or something to hold it still.
Cut newspaper into squares dip those into Elmer’s Glue and water or Modge Podge.
Cover the entire balloon except at the area at the top where the tye is. Apply with two good coats of the paper making sure all the edges are down good. Let dry overnight. Rotate the balloon to get all sides.
Mix up plaster of Paris sort of thick and paint all over the balloon. Let dry and reapply let that dry overnight.
The next day pop the balloon and decide how big you want the opening and just cut it with some old scissors.
Mix up some plaster of Paris and add to the inside of the vase to make it waterproof. This will take a while to dry but in the meantime, you can paint the outside.
I used metallic acrylics because they come in so many great colors. Apply like you want them trying not to cover one area too much with one color unless your only doing one color.
The stuff in my vases was weeds and things I picked in the pasture and dried out. I sprayed with clear spray to help with the shedding.
This is a great project to do with kids and very inexpensive.

Mr. Bird has been acting strange the last couple of days. He is a neutered male cat that is almost 9 years old. He weighed in at almost 15#’s.
I was stalking him this morning using the litter box and discovered he would go to pee but nothing was coming out. Then he would cry and growl somewhat this is not normal for him.
I took him to the vet this a.m. and he took out a syringe of urine so it would help his pain he has two kinds of stones. They did a urinalysis and a looked at it under the microscope.
Apparently, this is quite common in cats but especially male cats.
He’s taking antibiotics and tomorrow we will try the catheter for a few days and do some blood work but he may end up in surgery tomorrow instead.
He seems very uncomfortable he’s such a laid back cat normally. I have him in his own room so he can rest without puppy intervention. I hate it when something is wrong with one of my animals.

Daisy has shared Zoee with Mr. Bird who does not seem to mind the clumsy feet of a boxer puppy.
They stayed like this for at least one hour then Bird got up and laid on top of Zoee.
Its wonderful everyone is getting along so well.
The little moments like this that I get to capture with my camera really make my day.
This great blue heron was on the road.
It is probably the same one that use to stalk our koi/goldfish pond before we netted it.
I was able to get a few pics before he spotted me.
