I have seen a couple of beautiful birds up here, they don't seem to be very shy. Among those birds their is one species that just seems to be abundant on these mountains, and is also now one of my favorites. The male is blue and black with a big Mohawk on his head, the female does not have a Mohawk instead her belly is a whitish color. I've been trying to get the perfect picture of it, and have had many opportunities. Problem is that these little birds can't sit still enough for me to snap the picture at the right angle. It always flies off from tree to tree, all within my view. It doesn't seem like it's trying to hide at all, but mock me! This bird can always make me smile, it has so much spunk and personality. I see him running across the yard or street all the time like a roadrunner, and think to myself there goes Nathan. Nathan's my nephew, he is soo funny and has his own crazy personality oh and coincidently he wears styles his hair in a Mohawk every now and then. I was thinking to myself how could an animal remind you of a particular person and then remembered that my daughter Kayla commented to me one day that their was a dog that reminded her of her uncle. LOL They do say kids don't lie right..... I'm not sure if that counts because she's a teen, and we all know that it's second nature for teens to lie! Before we stray away from the topic too much I want to go back to wild personalities and crazy hairstyles, everyone has been asking me why I died my hair.... So I guess for the sake of not feeding into the possibility of cabin fever I'll distract myself by writing another post this week of where my crazy hair decision came and why not...... along with a picture! Till then here's a picture of the little crazy bird with the bad ass hair style. Till next time, the crazy hair lady!

My 1st white Christmas
I always wanted to have a white Christmas, and was finally able to have one. I always imagined how beautiful a white Christmas would be... in a cozy cabin in the woods, with a warm fire in the fireplace and a small tree with presents underneath. I am happy to report that my white Christmas went beyond my expectations, granted it is now spring and I am still nestled in that cabin in the middle of the woods. The snow has come and gone..... on more than one occasion and we are probably looking at having our first white Mother's day! Yup way more than I could have asked for lol. The bear sightings have been posted on the local facebook page with more frequency and now we have to be a little more of aware of our surroundings, since the rattle snakes tend to come out around this time. I've been asked by many people if I have cabin fever yet... The truth is I'm not all that sure. I still look out onto the mountains facing my living room windows and am blown away in how beautiful God has made the world. I still run to the windows when I hear the sensor alarms, to see the chipmunks hiding their acorns in the ground, and maybe just maybe deep down inside hoping that one of those times I catch a glimpse of a bear walking across the mountain.
I don't know whether at one point or another I have gone through a little cabin fever, but I'm sure that if I have.... it has not lasted long enough for me to notice. It's still as beautiful, serene and exotic as when my family and I first fell in love with this little hidden treasure. I must admit, I do need to find a hobby.... I have gained 15 pounds since we moved here. Not joking or LOL.
