Spring time

I took this photo of a busy bluejay last night on my walk home from work. I was a bit surprised that he didn't fly away while I took his photo. He looks like he is busy getting a nest ready, though.
Went to a church book sale this morning. I was expecting a table of paperbacks. Imagine my delight when I found the auditorium filled with tables and tables of books. In addition to the books were CD's and DVDs and some lovely homemade crafts! I spent a blissful hour rummaging through the all the items hoping to stumble upon something wonderful. I left with a cookbook on preparing an afternoon tea. It's an older book but there are plenty of colored photos and recipes that set my mouth a watering =)
Also in tow were several compact discs, they looked new, and a knitted dish cloth and the cutest little tea towel with cat appliques on it.
It's been a cool, overcast spring day here. My brat cats are snoozing a bit more than usual and they seem a bit hungrier than normal as well.
Hope everyone had a lovely Saturday!


  1. Love the bluejay picture. The flowers in the background are perfect. Your cats are beautiful. I need to get some videos on my blog like you have, too.

    I love your blog name, but am unfamiliar with the name Cherith. Is that your town?

  2. Hi Barb, thanks for visiting =) Cherith is the name of a brook found in the Old Testament. The prophet, Elijah, had to hide from a king he managed to tick off. So, he stayed by this brook for several years, it was a place of refuge for him.
    Hope you had a lovely Saturday!

  3. Maggie, what a lovely blog! I so enjoyed my visit so I decided to stay :) Hey, Wed. the cat photo? oh my gosh, is that stunning! I love cats and this photo is just too precious! thanks for visiting me so I was able to find you!
