Anna Clipper


Chrissie said...

Dear Sherry, I so enjoy your almanac :-) The last in flight photo is lovely. Be careful of your winter storm and stay warm.

Dear Chris,
Thank you for your kind words!
This is a very fun way to document my weeks. I still make short notes in my Book of Days. I bet we will have flowers and butterflies before too long too. I miss the butterflies so very much.
Still waiting on the freezing drizzle. Maybe it went around!
That would be wonderful.
Thank you again for your support.
I am getting more comfortable.

Another good job with this one. That was sweet of your hubby to folded you a butterfly. As for your Anna clipper, it might bring me some snow tomorrow, about 2 inches worth.

Dear Cathy,
Thank you! Maybe next week I will sound a bit more up beat. I am getting the hang of the music and when to click to move the picture. Maybe I will be able to just "say" my words...rather than "read" them. It is a learning sort of thing. Fun too!
My husband was kind to do an origami butterfly. I have a penguin and a mobil made with origami cranes. It is a fantastic art form.
I named the clipper after Naturegirl, Anna. She lives in Ontario and I think of her whenever a clipper comes my way. Next clipper will need a "B" name. Hope you enjoy the snow.
Thank you for your kind support.

I am so enjoying listening and watching your almanac unfold! Your origami butterfly is very nice - especially finding it in different spots :-} and your birds in flight - well they are just spectacular!! Thank you Sherry!

Oh Sherry, this brought tears to my eyes . . . i love how the butterfly your husband made for you, moves about your home.

Dear Becky,
Thank you. So happy you liked this entry.
My Origami butterfly is very sweet. Almost real. Right now Miss Butterfly is on one of the white roses my husband gave me for my birthday. I am drying the rose in a vase on my desk. I am waiting for Valentine's Day...hoping for more fresh flowers to arrive.

Dear Sue,
I would love to serve tea and cakes for everyone who is so kind to support me! I am learning and hopefully will continue to get better with narration. Maybe a voice coach???
My daughter used to do poetry readings and she is so very good! I think I just need more practice.
Thanks again for the encouragement,

Dear Deb,
Thank you!!!
I did save a couple of photos from the past week for Almanac. Sue had mentioned on Corner that she thought the ball finials on the deck would make a nice slide show so I did a few shots of the balls. I wanted to show the snow spray and the wing. It worked out.
I love my butterfly. My husband knows how much I miss them. I get like this in January and February. If we get a warm up a butterfly could come out for some water. If so it would be an event! I would jot it down in my record book and hopefully take a few photos.

Dear Sherry,

It is so thoughtful of you to think of Anna. Another wonderful job! I hope it warms up for you soon.

The Cardinal wings outstretched took my breath away.


Q said...

Dear Mary,
I think of Anna every time I go outside to feed the birds. Her fall impressed me! I am extra careful on the slick deck and garage floor.
Lots of wings in my backyard.
Thank you for being my friend!
Your support means the world to me.

Dear Sherry,

Oh, I love that you named the clipper "Anna."

This is a beautiful presentation. I love your voice. I also love your almanac, and it's name "The Way of the Tranquil Heart." It is just beautiful, did you name it?

I so look forward to your presentations, thank you dear one.

Love you,

Dear Sprite,
Thank you! Every week I feel more comfortable.
In the cover page of my book of special days it is written, "The way of the tranquil heart."
I bought it for the cover and its name!
Thank you for coming to Corner and walking about in all of her rooms.
Thank you for your kind support and encouragement.
Love and light,
