It is a busy and somewhat stressful week as we move into top gear preparing for the giant SPCA garage sale June 1st and 2nd. I'm also headed to the mainland tomorrow for a belated Mother's Day visit with my mom. And it's election day here in BC with what, so far, looks to be an historic vote as the election results are shaping up to be the complete opposite of what every poll suggested, and the Liberals look set to take their fourth consecutive term, and the Greens take their first seat ever. All the results aren't in yet, but media is already declaring the Liberal victory, and some declaring a Liberal majority.
But amid all the noise, busy-ness, hype, and bursts of heavy rain, two moments in my day gave me great joy and cause to pause for a bit. The first was Yellow Bird:
|Goldfinches at the feeder|
|Hey! There's some meat to go with our grains!|
Splashes of colour, especially when unexpected, make my heart sing. We all need splashes of colour in our lives.
