Glorious morning at the cabin.... (and log cabin follower winner!)

Yes, I've snuck away to the log cabin mid-week. It was a glorious morning today, wish I could've shared it with you! The lake ice has melted, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping....




And my beloved loons have returned. I honestly had tears in my eyes as I watched the pair swim across the lake (very far away from me so escuse the bad photo!)


And least I forget, another winner from my log cabin followers. Congratulations to JyLnc at A cup of joe with a view! I will be sending you a surprise gift from my nature store! Jylnc - please email me your address at shelleyupnorth at gmail dot com!

FYI - I am able to make personalized Mother's Day Gifts from my nature store. If you see a photo you like at my nature store, I can place that on any gift item such as a coffee mug, print, T shirt, keychain, greeting card, box of note cards, etc. Please contact me at the email address above with any questions or requests.

This is just so breathtaking. I don't blame you for getting away to the cabin. I am afraid if I had a cabin like it I wouldn't be home too much. he he
Thank you so much for sharing the beauty.
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Um, Awesome - Loon Season coming up quick! We have this super cool thing in our area - a Loon Census run by the DEC that residents can participate in. You just sign up, and choose a body of water that is still available. I have the pond/lake by our house. Can't wait. Congrats to JyLnc!

Lucky girl to get away like that (o: It is raining today and suppose to turn to snow. The grass and plants need moisture so bad, so it is all good (o: Will you stay there through the weekend? How fun.

I can't believe you said you were sorry for the bad photo of the loon.
Are you kidding? It was GREAT!!
Maybe you thought it was blurry from the tears in your eyes. Yeah..that's it.
