The Iowa Eagles

When we were in Iowa for the Easter holiday we took a little side trip to visit the eagles nest that you can follow via Ustream by clicking HERE. I was so suprised when we got there to see that it is located in a tree in someones back yard. From the video I always got the feeling that it was out in the country with a sparsely traveled road going by, but that isn't the case at all. Right across the road was a fish hatchery, which I'm sure the eagles visit on a regular basis, a well traveled walking path and several cars parked with people spending there afternoon watching the eagles. Isn't it funny how you can look at pictures or video and get a picture in your mind how something looks and then it turns out to be comepletly different.

Have A Great Day!


Look close and you can see the camera on the left side of the nest.

This is the fish hatchery, across the road from the nest.

The Egg Hunt

I just got around to uploading my photos to the computer from our last visit to Iowa to see family. And I had to share with you how my sister and I got our teenage kids to hunt for Easter eggs that we scattered around the farm yard. Give them a Kawasaki Mule to drive!! After all the complaining about being to old to go Easter egg hunting I think they had a blast!!

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I think the weather here in Wisconsin is finally going to warm up. Maybe I can start on the garden this weekend!!

Back To Good Health And Baby Eagles

Sorry I haven't posted in quite awhile but this winter has been extremely nasty for us as far as illnesses. It seems that we just get over one sickness and another one hits us. My youngest son has been on antibiotics way to much. So we are looking forward to warmer weather and perkier days ahead.

I have been checking in a few times a day on a Ustream live video of an eagle sitting on a nest and today is the scheduled day for the babies to hatch. You can see little holes in the eggs when she stands to rearrange the eggs. It will be fun to see the babies when they make their way out of the shell. Here is the link if you want to check in on them.  http://www.ustream.tv/channel-popup/decorah-eagles.

Have a great weekend!

Get Her Done!!

This poor little bear has been waiting patiently for me to finish her, so I promise this weekend I will get her done.

I promise I won't start this adorable Valentines cross stitch pattern from Brenda Gervais at  Country Stitches.

And I will wait until next week to finish these embroidered pillows that I'm going to be putting into my new Etsy Shop (woo hoo)!!

The bear must get finished first!! I Promise.... WISH ME LUCK!
