The beauty of Pelicans

Pelicans are so amazing they fly with such grace as they glide in for a landing.

Here are a few pictures of some brown Pelicans.

They seem to spend a lot of times floating around in the water in between fishing for their food.

I took these pictures near Galveston and the Pelicans were everywhere.

After the rain

Mushrooms are fungi that lie dormant in the soil until the conditions are just right and usually they will bloom after a rain.

We have fertilized our yard 2 times so I am surprised to see any because the nitrogen in fertilizer normally gets rid of them in the soil.

I thought these were pretty neat looking so I decided to grab a few macro shots of them.

Stained glass

Has anyone tried doing the stained glass art projects?

I bought all the stuff and I am having a terrible time trying to cut the glass.  The glass cutter worked for the first few pieces now it is no longer cutting through the glass

This is another DIY I found on Pinterest. I just so happen to find the stained glass on clearance at Hobby Lobby so it was a win-win situation.

I already had an old bike that we took apart for this project. I love this idea but would really like to finish it lol.
