happy 'leap day'!

So if you've been thinking there aren't enough hours in your day...this one's for you. It's a do with as you please! Today you will twenty-four extra hours, which come your way only once every four make the most of them.

In light of the fact that I'd have an extra day to catch up on this month's obligations...and since the sun was shining yesterday...and since my good friend Marg was back from skiing and not quite ready to leave on her next vacation...and since I really needed to check out my new pedometer...I took yesterday afternoon off and Marg I went for a stroll along the river (let's call it a brisk stroll!)

It wasn't meant to be a bird watching experience, but I noticed that every picture was of the birds. It was a beautiful afternoon...and I'm so glad we took advantage of the weather because this morning we have grey skies and drizzle.

Following our walk we stopped by Starbucks for a coffee...and I tried out something new. I'm not great on sweet coffees, so the caffe misto fit the bill (half coffee/half steamed milk). So my bonus day is already spent...and I have a few things that I need to accomplish today.

Tradition has it that February 29th is ladies I am choosing to go see 'Bucket List' tonight with my my hubby. One needs a good laugh on occasion!

Have a wonderful bonus day!


  1. Thanks for your friendship Judy.
    Your Leap Year Post is so appropriate.
    Those pictures remind me of birds of a feather, flock together. That's you and myself and it started many years ago, only to be renewed...
    Have a wonderful time tonight with Hubby.

  2. Have I told you in the last week that you sure do enjoy a lovely corner of God's world? A walk with a friend, even a brisk pleasant!

    Enjoy the movie and be sure to critique it for us!

  3. A beautiful day! And wow, all those eagles.

    Enjoy your leap day...

  4. What a lovely way to spend your leap day. Oh do enjoy your date tonight and take full advantage by askig for popcorn too.
    Beautiful pictures . ..

  5. Now, you've had a lovely day...nature and God...what more could you ask for?
    Hope you are well and all is going in the right direction for you!

  6. BUCKET LIST is a great choice - I know you'll enjoy it! I don't go to the movies very often but this one was worth it.

  7. Lovely pics, Judy..I love bird watching.
    I mentioned to hubby this morning that this was a bonus day..
    Haven't seen 'Bucket List' yet, please let us know what you think.
    How nice to spend time with a friend!

  8. Judy!!!! Your spring layout is just so fresh and I just love the snowdrop header. I feel the seasons changing already.

  9. Oh Judy, the new header is beautifully springy! As you can see, my header is all about "watching the clock" and waiting for spring. I have never seen the snowbanks this high in all of my adult life.
