I hope you're having a lovely day and week so far.
I realize more and more how blessed I am.
Health... Food... Shelter...
and just so many wonderful people in my life.
My life is so rich and full of interesting challenges, enrichment and beauty!
I'm so grateful.
We live in such a time that there is so much inspiration and
opportunity to learn more about the things we love.
I must admit, I have to limit myself in this and and keep my feet firmly
planted as I dream and work toward growing in my music and artistry.
But it's so exciting!
I am still working on the deep cleaning and purging of personal and
household items. It's also been a soul-searching time as well, which has brought
about some revelations and changes that I'll share in my next post.
It is very freeing and I'm finding myself more focused
on the things that really matter to me.
Today, I want to share some pictures of a
recent project that I did with my grand daughters.
It's super easy, fun and serves a purpose.
Not porpoise ;) Silly me....
The project is
Peanut Butter and Birdseed Pinecones
There's not much to explain.
The only thing that I did differently this time was to
add a screw to hang it by. It was easier than trying to wrap
the ribbon around the pinecone itself.
I added some sprinkles to the seed just to make it more
colorful and festive.
We all know that's what little girls love!
And honestly, I like it, too.
And the birds like a sweet treat now and then.
This is potentially very messy but the cake pans helped a lot.
The girls did a wonderful job!
Peanut butter was thoroughly smushed into every crack!
They love watching the birds and helping me feed them.
I allow them to take the little, yellow bucket outside.
Using a small measuring cup, they each count out four scoops
as they pour the seed onto the patio.
I don't use bird feeders. They eat so much!
I sometimes feed them three times a day.
We took them outside to hang them in a tree.
It didn't take long for the birds to find them
and now they are picked clean.
I loved sharing this project with girls. They had so much fun making them!
Their mom helped, too.
I wish I had gotten a picture of the three of them
with their pinecones.
It's wonderful way to teach them how magical nature is and how to
be a part of helping the lovely creatures of the wild.
It also helps nurture that love and wonder for nature that kids already have.
What kind of magic and wonder is happening in your world?
I'd love to hear about it.
Thank you so much for coming by.
Happy March 1st!
