I interrupt this weekly weird bird post to share a perfect day with you!
We had to make a quick trip to the lake yesterday to have our RV fixed by “Bob,” the mobile RV doctor! 😉
It was a beautiful day with temperatures in the 80’s so I thought you might want to tag along with me for some lake time in Northern Idaho…
Priest Lake does look rather inviting with its pristine water but it is still a chilly 60 degrees.
I’d rather sit in a beach chair and enjoy the view, how about you?
The wild roses are in bloom and so Pretty In Pink
I even discovered a bumble bee enjoying them!
The Cottonwood trees were shedding their cottony seeds and it looked a little like snow falling from this brilliant blue sky.
My friend, Marsha showed me her amazing needlepoint she is creating of BIRDS! I can’t wait until she completes all the unique stitches and adds their beaded hats!
I hope you enjoyed this perfect day at the lake with me!
As the sign in our kitchen at home says… “A day at the lake is worth a month in town!”
P.S. I did see a “gang” of turkeys cross the road on the car ride home… perhaps they will show up in next week’s weird bird Wednesday!

We have been dealing with smoke from wild fires in our area for several weeks. Not only do we have poor vision but the air quality has been awful! This photo was taken last weekend at the lake:
So we were thrilled to have a few drops of rain and wind to clear the skies this last weekend!
Yesterday, we were able to enjoy a short boat ride and breathe in fresh air in clear skies. It was wonderful to see blue sky and mountains again. Hoorah! 😃
We noticed the air and water temperatures were cooler and leaves starting to change to autumn’s glorious show:
It was so nice to enjoy the beauty around us again! We hope that the firefighters are able to get control of fires around us so that the smoke stays away. We still need rain badly.
Even the wild animals are hurting from the dry weather. I found this wild bunny eating an apple from a neighbor’s tree. The deer love the apples but I have never seen a bunny eat one!
Such bizarre weather this year, everywhere it seems…
Stay safe friends!

I took this photo at the lake recently:
Then had fun changing it with a free app called, “Layout,” on my iPad:
Doesn’t it look cool?!
Here is another one with a different photo:
Wishing you a day to relax doing what you enjoy!

We are FINALLY getting some warmer Spring weather in the Pacific Northwest! The flowering trees are just starting to bloom like this ornamental plum tree:
I wrote a haiku to celebrate:
Showy pink petals
Purple plum ornamental
A Springtime delight!
Wishing you a Sunny Sunday!
