A Visitor

This little guy was in our garage today, trying to navigate his way out. We think it was a young hawk but we've never seen one this close before. I think his feathers are so beautiful!

I'm working on a scrapbook project for Bob's mom's 80th birthday next weekend. I got 8 pages done today, using Making Memories Boho Chic line of products. So easy to create when the color choices are already there. I really want her to journal her life's story in this book so I'm keeping it simple and focussing on the very oldest photographs. It won't be totally finished next week - my goal is to have the story recorded by Christmas.

And the rain continues ------


  1. My dh is a bird nut. So he tells me it's a kind of kestrel. Sure enough we look it up and it's an American Kestrel (Falco sparverius). Just for the teacher of course.

    Sending some mojo to finish the minialbum. What a great birthday gift.

  2. What a gorgeous looking bird!! and incredible photo! Thank goodness you had your camera handy!! The book that you are making sounds so lovely! I know that your mother in law will adore it! I can't wait to see it too!

  3. You got a great start on the Grandma's album! That's awesome - she will love it!
    And that bird is gorgeous! Awesome photos!

  4. what a darling little bird!

  5. I love how he's posing for you! Did you have a zoom lens on, or did he let you get that close??

  6. He's a cute one. Sounds like the album is coming along. She's going to love it, and be so surprised. You're such a great daughter-in-law. Hugs.
