Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

these things summer brings

while mowing the backyard max found this snow white wooley guy. always to be known as calapitars at our home. max and i took turns letting him crawl up and down our arms. nothing will make you feel like a kid again quicker than giggling as this multi-legged fuzzy creature gives you goose-bumps while parading up down your arms. we have seen these in black, brown, orange, but never white. what a treat this was.
the heat of the day drove us all to seek shelter someplace cool. not often do we see a bunny with it's guard down, stretched out and relaxed in the shade.


all day yesterday we anxiously awaited for night fall, not only to bring cooler temperatures, but saturday night/sunday morning was the peak of the summer meteor shower we look forward to every year. this year was going to be the first time in over 10 years we would all be able to watch this together, and at last check it would be the first year in many that it would not rain on the peak night..... while the boys all went to the store, steph and i came outside to see what all the noise was....we found a neighbor with his car radio cranked up and the heavens were booming with thunder. we looked up to find a clouded over sky producing some of the most beautifully colored lightning.

i am in awe of nature. shooting stars and lightning are some of my favorite sights. i stood for half an hour easily watching this show, never quite quick enough to capture the most beautiful of displays.

although our star gazing had to be cancelled for the night, we still were able to watch an amazing light show in the sky.

if the weather allows we will be back out front in the driveway on the air mattress oohhhhing and ahhhhing while counting shooting stars, satellites, mosquito bites, and swooping bats for the next few weeks.
