Monday Refresh!

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! The videos I have selected for this post are:

Songbirds Splashing in a Bird Bath

Hummingbirds Play in Homemade Bird Bath

For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

Sometimes you need to be alone to find out who you really are and what you really want.


I'm not the same soul I once was.  A lot has changed.  So you shouldn't expect out of me what I embodied in the past, for that part of me no longer exists.


Sometimes the best thing you can do is not overthink things.  Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.


At the end of the day I have to remember, my blessings outweigh my problems.


The only thing you can control in this world is your inner space.













Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!

  5. Very entertaining to watch the birds taking their bath. That big bird wanted the whole bath for itself. We have kept birds as pets before and the best part was watching them taking their bath. We no longer keep birds as pets.

  7. Those Hummingbirds Play in the Bird Bath is so cute.

  8. I LOVE Betty White. She is so funny. The Golden Girls was such a classic program, between her and Be a Arthur. They don't make them like that any more. The little birds are lovely and so cute but my cat would think that this was a starter dish for her. :( Xx

  16. Hi Linda. I played golf yesterday and it was in the 90s with high humidity. I use a "cooling" towel to beat the heat. Works pretty good. Your little birds know how to beat the heat, too! Always love Betty White - what a character. And there's one quote from Salmansohn that is priceless...about not being the same person today we were in the past!

    Wishing you a wonderful, and joy-filled week!

  19. It was so much fun watching those hummingbirds. If that birdbath were in my yard, I would probably spend way too many hours watching them.

  22. Happy Monday, Linda! I got a kick out of the bird bathing videos. I had no idea that hummingbirds played in the water like that. I need to brand that Karen Salmansohn quote on my forehead! I hope that your week is getting off to a good start. Things are calming down a little here. Sending you big hugs, my special friend!

  44. Hi Linda,I so enjoy coming for a visit here with you!
    That humming bird bath was awesome! I'm thinking I need to make one of those, although we have the creek right next to our home, just don't always see them in it.
    Thank you for sharing with us.

    Blessings to you~~

  47. I gather it's heating up over there at the moment. Meanwhile, Australia is experiencing the coldest temperatures it's had ever. Sydney has even been close to zero - which is unheard of. Brr!
