Why did the (funky) chicken cross the road?

To get to my kitchen.
I have something of a chicken collection. 23, I believe, the last time the kids counted. It started out innocently enough. As a child I played among Eucalyptus trees in the area where my Great-Grandma's chickens had their coups. They were all different, and so beautiful. Not the plain white ones we see in commercial settings here in the US. When I see a funky chicken I can't help but smile and think of carefree times.



The thing is...once you get more than one... they seem to multiply like bunnies.

What collections can be found
 around your home?

A few dreamy Master Bedroom views,
from Josh's Current Listings...

In Hernando Beach, FL:
Gaze all the way to the Gulf of Mexico...
from this open & airy bedroom...(you should see the bath)

In Hudson Beach, FL:

Gaze at your gazebo, boat dock, and extra-wide canal...
while resting your head on your pillow...

In Tampa, FL:

A very affordable townhouse, with a priceless view...

Hope you enjoyed the quick peek!
See his website if you wanna poke around a bit more.

Pssst...I'm working on a give away because the amazingly gorgeous and inspiring Tara at TMI gave me a Lovely Blog Award, and I want to celebrate it right! 

What's your dream view?

Slowly healing...

There is something infinitely healing
in the repeated refrains of nature
- the assurance that dawn
 comes after night, 
and spring after the winter.

Sorry it has been a while since my last visit.

I haven't been feeling very well, and finally had emergency gall bladder surgery on Thursday.

  I am slowly healing, and looking forward to getting back to normal.  I'm thankful I have so many wonderful blogs to fill my time, and lift my spirits as I take it easy for a bit.
