A Magical Sort of Day...

Have you ever had a day that seemed almost charmed? As though everything were filled with magic and wonder? A day when you just feel more in tune with the universe, when the creative juices are flowing so freely it's almost dizzying?

I LOVE this kind of day!

We awoke much later than usual this morning - almost 6:30, which meant the sun was already shining. And I'm not sure what's up with the birds today - it's a regular symphony out there. And they're BOLD too! Several have spent the morning splashing around the pond's waterfall, completely oblivious to the neighbor's cats (who are also mercifully oblivious).

And this little guy seems to want in the house:

He's appeared on the dining room windowsill twice in the last hour, pecking at the glass like a woodpecker. Merlin and Arthur are quite excited, thinking he looks like lunch. (Oh, and pardon the dingy windows, hehe....Given the choice between window washing and creating, well - there really IS no choice.) ;)

So I'm taking advantage of the magic today - immersing myself in a fairy tale princess coach...sketching dragons and frog princes, painting starry skies and lush green forests....

Photos of the piece in progress coming soon. In the meantime, I hope your day immersed in magic too!

How fun...we have a cardinal in our backyard and two huge owls that sing and hoot at 5 am ...I love to take Henry and Margrit out and listen to them..Of course hubby says to be careful, because Margrit is still small the owls make scoo her up.....They would bring her right back too...LOL her crossed eyes and quickness(adhd). Henry to obese to lift...

Love my bird feeders also...How fun of a morning for you....Flow with creativity.

Oh it sounds wonderful watching those sweet birdies! I just finished reading "Frida Kahlo Beneath the Mirror". Her work inspires me:)

Wonderful... wonderful day, love the photo of the bird (never even noticed the windows). I was outside today for a bit (filling up food bowls for neighborhood cats) and took note of the rather loud symphony of birds. It IS magical, never ceases to bring a smile to my heart.

Carolee now this is my kind of post. So full of magic and the love of life.

I feel I have learnt a lot about you by hearing the names Merline and Arthur. My kind of person.

Lovely, lovely blog.
