Happy Easter!

Happy Resurrection Day!!

John 11:25~~

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies;


John 3:16....everyone should know this one! (click on the scripture if you need a refresher)

Yeah...I'm back!! What an amazing "splash" of weather we are having! I have a lot to blog about but very little time, so I will tell you about my trip today but come back because I have some goodies to show you...

I swear I think
Krafty1 has put it on me for all my flower pictures! She posted about the snow up north, well...guess what!

You guessed it! We got up Saturday morning to this...
(even though the river here is about 5 miles wide you can't see very far off the island)
It doesn't look like it from this shot, but the snow was blowing sideways and hard!

We had a great visit...just a long trip for just a short time!

I need some help with one of my BIL's anyone need a date? The other BIL thinks that since I was so successful with my friends BS & SP that I should be able to do it again! Rigghhhht!

These are the Osprey living near the island, case you didn't know this they mate for life and return every year to their former nest to rebuild. Wonderful creatures to watch! In this case, their duck blind was taken by Hurricane Isabel and the small remainder of the structure was finished off by Hurricane Ernesto last year.

Are they fighting for the same pole or foreplay? BIL said they were "dating"...Hubby got a couple shots that would have some great captions or word bubbles to add! Nothing is going on....yet! The would just sit this way until a gust of wind would knock the one on top off balance!

What is so amazing is the fact the wind was blowing at a constant 30 mph or so!

On Saturday morning she was looking at the nest as if to say "You want me to lay eggs THERE!" The nest was full of snow!

So...BIL told the story of watching them try to figure out where to build, they hung around and hung around, then on last Wed he came home to this...
This is the walkway that lead to the duck blind! Can you imagine what was going through their minds when they came back and but structure was gone??? BIL said that when Ernesto hit~all had left the nest (including the new babies).

This is the new house on the island...looks a lot different from the last picture I posted! Island Living Mahn!!

AnyHoo....gotta go do the dishes (YUCK)!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin"!!!!

What a COOL place to live! A little scary during hurricanes, though, but still, I think I'd tough it out! Looks like you had a nice time. And Happy belated Resurrection Day to you, too! :-)
