Lots of Feather Messages

Random Thoughts

Feathers have been roaming around in my thoughts lately.  Over the past couple of weeks I have been finding feathers in my yard on a regular basis.  A number of them were standing at attention in the grass.  Some light and fluffy ones showed up around my feet.  One slightly beat up feather was left by a dove watching me at the window.  After looking me over, the dove shook itself and reached down and pulled the feather out.  She/he then looked at me again, dropped the feather on the ground and, with one last look, flew away.

Many people believe that feathers are gifts from the Universe bringing messages.  That they bring us an opportunity or reminder to connect, to see, to find answers.  A message, also, that Love and assistance are there for the asking.  We just need to remember that we need not walk alone.  Easier said than done.

When was the last time you sat down quietly and went within to seek your messages and to ask for Love and assistance to be brought into your life?  When was the last time you sat quietly and gave Thanks to the Universe?  I know I’m way over due.

I was outside trying to get good pictures with natural light.  That little fluffy feather is also a Blue Jay feather but the wind kicked up and started blowing the feathers around so that was the end of outdoor picture taking of feathers.

Life At Our House

Lots of messes here need to be addressed.  But for now, here is what I have been snacking on:

Husband made these for work by request.  And, of course, some were left behind at home.

I wish my balance was this good.  Usually they crawl across upside down.

Can you see that he has stuffed his pouches so full that the paper towels are sticking out of his mouth?

Out In The Yard

It is the end of the year, unfortunately.

This poor butterfly showed up at night and slept in the window.  He's rather beat up.

Mr. Toad sat buried in this pot for 3 days.  He didn't even get out at night.  Then suddenly, three days ago, he took a bath and left.

Have I mentioned how much I dislike winter?

Mugs

Yep, back to this one.  The past couple of nights have not been fun.

And, WOW!, it’s only 9:30!  I’ll have time to work on crocheting a tissue box cover!  Night!

  1. I never knew all of that about feathers. That’s cool. Also kind of weird, cause guess what I found this weekend? A feather!
    As for the toad, I wonder if he went to start preparing for hibernation. That’s so cool that he lived on our porch for a while though. I hope he has a good winter.
    My life is consisting of work, homework, classes, and clubs. Nothing terribly exciting at the moment. Although Halloween is approaching, so who knows maybe something fun will show up.
    Love you guys! Vale.

    • HA! I post that Mr. Toad has been gone for three days and who do I see when the UPS guy blasted me out of bed this morning? Yep. He’s currently sitting in the water dish. 🙂
