Moon Update on Caturday

 Tonight's moon.
And an update on my Ramadan cross-stitch -- part three was released and stitched yesterday.
Some photos from my neighborhood walk and a little surprise.
While hanging a heart at the park, there was a kitty twirling around my legs -- but I kept hearing a meow from above, not below. 
I was so confused -- looking all around -- and then from the branches above me appeared the sweetest kitty..
They were both happy to eat some leftover chicken that I had with me.
Sending bright blessings your way.
Happy Saturday.

The First Day

Let your light shine and your heart bloom.

 Today is the first day of the holy month of Ramadan.

Two weeks ago, I joined a Ramadan stitch-along hosted by Tirazain with a new part of the design being released every Friday for 5 weeks.

Part 1 took the longest to stitch.
Part 2 was much quicker
And I'm ready for the next release tomorrow.
Took a nice meandering walk around my neighborhood and through my local park this morning.
Sending blessings your way for a lovely day.

Wednesday Walk With Me

Spring work is going on with joyful enthusiasm.
(John Muir)
We are still having nice weather over here so I am getting out for walks as much as I can -- at least two or three times a day.

Found this little butterfly on our neighbor's driveway that was having difficulty flying.  I noticed it only had one antenna but read that they are still able to navigate so don't know what was wrong, but I carried it around the block to a garden filled with flowers which is much nicer than being stuck on the pavement.
Flowers and butterflies drift in color, illuminating spring.

Happy Equinox.

A Very Good Day

 Today was my craft groups's bi-weekly meet-up.  We even had someone new show up who found us on Instagram -- she's from Washington State and has only been in Kuwait since June of last year.
Didn't get any good pictures, but there was a parade at the restaurant complex where we met -- never could figure out what exactly it was for but certainly made for an interesting morning (I got some video of the dancers and marching band that I posted to my IG account.)
Received some really lovely belated birthday gifts from one of my craft friends that she brought back from her recent trip to India.
The chocolate was toffee and so delicious with coffee this afternoon.
Another craft friend shared this beautiful mandala art with us that she did yesterday at a workshop she hosted for a yoga retreat.
And finally, a photo from my evening walk.

It really was a very good day.

Happy weekend!

Hello March

Flowers and colors everywhere,
I am so glad that March is here.
(Anamika Mishra)

This morning I read a post by Di at Quilting is Blissful in which she mentioned having lunch with a friend at the beach.  There's beach front all around me, just a hop, skip and a jump away -- but it's not a place I often go.  Since my husband keeps telling me I need to drive my car (and our mechanic suggested at least once a week so that the tires and battery don't go bad again), I decided to head seaside for a walk.
A pretty blue sky always makes me happy and beautiful flowers planted along the parking area were a colorful surprise.

I probably should go to the beach more often -- especially before the heat arrives.  It's already getting warmer and by next week we will reach 80 F during the day.  

I gotta get as many walks in as I can while the weather is still good.
One of the reasons I've hated going to the beach is because there was always a ton of garbage.  It's better now, but of course, there's always something to be picked up.  
Spotted some balloons floating around so grabbed them and popped them with a shard of glass then picked up the pieces and placed them in a trash can.  There are loads of trash cans along the boardwalk but some people just can't bother themselves to use them.

Sending wishes your way for a happy new month.
Have a wonderful day.
