i have way more notes, pictures, and even a video or two to share from the fabulous judith mackenzie mccuin workshop – i can’t recommend more highly her workshops. i’ll definitely be on the lookout for more, it’s just amazing how much info that woman can pack in a one-day session, much less three.
this day has become one of my favorite holidays of the whole year. today’s celebration didn’t consist of a maypole or walking in the streets, but instead a welcoming-summer outing for a couple of hours – just me, mamacat, trouble, and the whole big backyard. they were thrilled – tails twitching and lots of bounding and sniffing all over the place.
wow! had to add: i just saw a pair of enormous birds in the backyard! i can’t tell if they’re hawks or eagles, but they’re BIG and just gorgeous. i’d been hearing them for a while but didn’t think anything beyond, “huh, those are some noisy birds” and then one landed on the deck..! i ran for the camera but they had retreated to the woods already. one keeps calling out distressed-sounding yells, but they both seem to be flying fine and not hurt. i wish i knew more about what kind of birds they are – i wish i could help! but maybe they’re just happy it’s spring and yelling out about that. ! so very exciting, as you can tell by the exclamation marks. love the birds!
