Snuggled in My Nest

Little did I know that when I first started this blog and posted the first few posts that I would be drawn away by a project that took the whole month of February.

 It was a fun adventure titled "Be Your Own Beloved" and I learned a number of things about myself and others who also did the journey.  We were given prompts every day and then had to take a photo representing those prompts.  Some days it was very easy and others, not so.

But that is over now and I wanted to share a little bit about my nest.  I have been creating today and the subject of this "journal" if that is what it is called is titled "The Lost Chord" - it seems to be centering around a group of "lost children" who are probably not lost.

While I was doing my own thing in February I found a recipe for cheddar corn chowder. It was so delicious I call it dangerous. So creamy. I found it on another blog. I am not big into corn or chowder so it was a challenge to make this dish. I will definitely try it again.  If you want the recipe, here is the link:  Cheddar Corn Chowder from the Barefoot Contessa -- she knows how to make a grand evil dish!

A little garlic bread also made the chowder taste really good and of course the bacon wasn't bad.

Changing the subject rather quickly here -- Within the nest are a number of birdhouses collected over the year along with "cats" that my friend Janie has given me. All live happily in the nest and no birdies are served against their will. Is this going anywhere, you might ask?  Yup.

I need to go over to Honeysuckle Breeze and post some photos of my creation today.

Going to leave you with my yellow ducky - found on sale at Tuesday Morning years ago.

Take care, and I will return shortly. I have been taking photos and really do not want to share all at once.

Always remember to bless your nest. Let the walls absorb your joy and serenity.  I honestly believe a home does absorb the energies of those who live within the walls. I think I have some kind of Stephen King lurking in my heart when it comes to homes. Yup, a novel (if it has not already been written) could be written about the home and how it will turn on its owners if not treated right. Far fetched? Maybe or may not. Just remember that yesterday a sink hole in Forida ate a man in his bedroom...... OK, that was not the nest - but a sink hole under it. YUK.

Take care of your little nest, just in case I'm not wrong. LOL.

Below is one of my "Be Your Own Beloved - A Part of the Whole 16/28: "In my world, crazy hair, slouchy clothes on a day off - and photo all dressed in sepia! Love my part of the whole in my nest."
