365 Days of Happiness (151/365)

My kitchen window looks out onto our back yard, which is full of small trees, a garden, and a small pool.  I have spent many minutes and hours of my life, washing dishes and gazing out of that window at my children, nature, the world outside.  Last Sunday morning, I was washing some breakfast dishes, and looking out the window at a bright & sunny day.  It was early….quiet.  The world outside of my picture window appeared to be all mine <3

As I soaped and scrubbed, I watched this tiny little finch building a nest in one of our trees in the back yard. She’d fly out, bring back a twig or a piece of dry grass….then she’d flit and float and hover in the air as she tucked and built a nest.


Have you ever come across an old bird’s nest and really looked at it?  So complex, so intricate, almost architectural. And to think, the little mama did all of that with her beak.  Such a talented and amazing little wonder.  Spring is a magnificent time of year!  #ChooseHappiness365 (151/365)

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
