Owls, Lepers, and More Around the Net

In just two days' tootling around some of my favorite places on the Internet I have found items worth sharing in several categories: humor, animal photos, Bible study, a recipe and a quilt -- just a sampling of this week's surprises in that wide world.

Gumbo Lily shows photos of the darling owls in her own back yard. She often encounters wildlife to capture with her camera, illustrating the ranch life she captures with her pen (um...keyboard).

Angie got me laughing again, this time about Internet spam, of all things. Spam with a Scottish twist.

M.K.'s recent post To Touch a Leper, got me thinking on the wonderful and mysterious fact of Christ's life and how it is health and cleanness.

A quilter-blogger Who Loves Baby Quilts and doesn't own a sewing machine made a sweet mini quilt she refers to as a mug rug. Now I know what to call my own treasured little rug given to me some time ago. I'm showing both sides, which I have tried to keep pretty by not using it when my mug contains cocoa.

Last, a simple and simply yummy-sounding Greek dessert that requires not much more than opening a container of good yogurt.

Hello Gretchen, I have been meaning to tell you that one of my very favorite of your posts is the one of your grandmother pictured out front of her house where you mention the sweet olive. You'll have to tell me if you think there is a place where one would grow on the property.

Thanks for the shout-out! :-)

Thanks, GJ -- I enjoyed all those fun blogs! I think I may shuffle around which blogs I have on my Google Reader to check each day. Some of my old ones I'm growing a bit weary of, and some of your recommendations are so much more to my taste :) The "spam" post was hysterical!!

I enjoyed all your links and even discovered a few new ones. I especially loved the owls! How lucky of them to get them in their yard during the daytime. I've only heard mine at night.

I think they would called Scottish spam "haggis".

Thanks for the bloggy love! You must know that my "backyard" is fairly large but a short walk to where the owls like to hang out during the day.

Now to check out the other links.

Thanks for sharing these blog tidbits. I was inspired by "Who Loves Baby Quilts" and now am extra excited about starting a hand sewn quilt for P and my home. I likely would have not run across this blog unless you mentioned it.
