Three Wishes

Sunday Scribblings
Mama Says OM


This beautiful gift of nature was found by Chloe age 11 the always observant one in our front yard on Sunday. The weekend was a whirlwind of activity with the prom for older sister Grace and their end of the year dance recital. It was all lovely. Aside from the activities, Chloe found this special nature treat.

Three wishes is what they say a fairy will grant you ... if you happen upon one ...
I say we are given the equivalent of three wishes each and every day we wake up. What we choose to do with our lives each and everyday are our wishes granted to ourselves.

The word of the day is ... DANCE ... as in the prom, the celebration of a year's work of dance in a recital form and your eyes when holding a great surprise!

How lucky to have robins nesting! What an incredible blue those eggs are - wow!

What a nice thing to have in your yard! When I was a little girl, I came upon a robin's egg by itself in a field. It was near easter, so I thought it must be an easter egg the bunny had left by mistake. I bit into it, and...ewww...hot, runny yolk! I still am amazed by the vibrant hues of nature...but I no longer spontaneously eat things that look pretty:>

What an amazing photo! I can not believe the color of those eggs! So unusual and special. I hope the chicks are ok . . . where did the eggs go?

Carla-your story reminds me of Ramona Quimby who thought it would be cool to crack a hard boiled egg open on her head, but came to find out she had grabbed an unboiled one by mistake. I still think about this story 20 years later. It was one of my favorite books as a girl.
