The Royal Pair and the Sycamore Palace

Hope your week-end is great....

Sandi said...

Thanks Steve for a new thread and thanks Margy for the call over. Looks like our eagles are spending more and more time in the nest! Cool beans, as Judy would say!

magpie said...

Sandi:
I hope you get all your work done pronto today so you CAN take that hike to the Eagles Nest !!
You Go Girl !

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks for the call over, Margy! Congrats on the feather!

Thanks Steve for the new thread, and our wonderful live feed!

stronghunter said...

Good morning! Well, it is still morning at this point. Being lazy today. Hunter is with his dad; Kathryn and I are hanging out at home.

Thanks Steve for the new thread, and thanks Margy for the call-over.

stronghunter said...

Earthquake off the coast of Alaska. Trying to check it out.

Mema Jo said...

Thank you for the fresh new thread,m Steve.
Margy - sorry you missed all the nestorations that Shep and Belle were doing this morning! Quite a few laughs at their bickering then beaking. lol

stronghunter said...

Nest empty, snow mostly gone. Still some on the ground there, though.

paula eagleholic said...

The quality on our still cam is much improved!

stronghunter said...

Yes, Paula, very good quality.

Lolly said...

Good morning! Slept late and I am really slow moving this morn.

Laurel ridiculed me for having my Christmas decorations still up. She did it with a twinkle in her eye. On the other hand, I have decided to leave them up. Then will not have to decorate in 11 months. lol

I have so much to do here in my house that I do not know where to start. I know, time to pick up my kindle and start on a new book and just ignore the house!!!

Lolly said...

Slept til nine this morn. Felt good! And, of course, missed all the eagle action this morn. I have been going so hard with this move that I have not remembered to bring the cam up first thing in the morn. Gotta do better!

paula eagleholic said...

Trying to catch the ft myers eaglets....Mom has them covered up at the moment

paula eagleholic said...

Oh, so Larry was telling me last night that he was watching one of the college bowl games Thursday night on TV...and what do they have at the beginning...Challenger Eagle, doing a fly around before the game!

paula eagleholic said...

Aha, it was the Fiesta Bowl in AZ

magpie said...

Lolly:
xo !

magpie said...

I think what you are doing this morning, today, and for the next
11 months is SPOT ON!!

You know, I love to decorate, and
virtually nothing happeend this year...not even my little lighted
miniatures box...

magpie said...

But I'M OK with it...just
missed having some twinklies at
my roost....

magpie said...

Halftime at work for me
Oh J☼y, to be working with
Jewels again ☺ ☼ ♪ ♫ ♥

magpie said...

But Caro is here until 8 pm so I am trying to be quiet about leaving her behind at 1600 :(

Hey! We are hatching some plans to get some walking exercise in after some of our work days ☺☺

magpie said...

Yup Ditto and 10-4 all those
who've already expressed this"

the Quality of the
cam view is top shelf

paula eagleholic said...

Misty's pup are now on the cam

Update:
the last of my summer annuals have been thrown out and the pots put away (I had 5 geraniums and a pot of dragon-wing begonias that were still green and flowering until this week's low temps);
3 loads of laundry washed and dried; hanging stuff hanging but other stuff not folded (that can wait til Sunday night when we're watching TV);
3 bathrooms cleaned;
upstairs dusted and vacuumed;
3 wiener dogs have been out to pee and poop.

I need a nap - forgot to turn the alarm off last night so I've been up since 5:45am. 45 minutes to re-energize and I should be able to tackle the IEP I have to write.

Later!

Janet said...

good afternoon all. groceries bought and put away. part of the house straightened up..... and shortly heading out to get amelia (GD) and then take olivia and amelia ice skating. think i will grill burgers out tonight.

new thread on a saturday....thanks steve!

hope everyone continues to have a productive, good saturday! :)

Judie said...

Good late afternoon everyone.

Thank you Steve for the fresh thread and Margy for call over.

New live feed is fantastic. Nest looks so clear and especially beauteous when Belle and Shep are there.

Took the day off to fight my way through the grossery store. Was mentally annoyed by all the "elders" who block aisles checking lists and coupons and using their carts to trap others in the toilet paper/Depends aisle. Then realized I was looking in a mirror.

Shrimp on the grill tonight. Ribs for the 'Skins game tomorrow.

Sure would be cool if Challenger could do a fly-over for a Redskins game. How better could it get than Challenger and a big fat "Skins win."

Seems everyone has had a productive day. BBL

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Good Saturday morn to all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Have you peeked at Phoebe's nest recently? As of this morning she has two new chicks in her nest.

Both of our cameras are working perfectly this A.M. I'm happy to say.

Weather's kind of sunny, kind of overcast right now in So Cal, but we are in for rain later today and tomorrow.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

JudyE said...

HELLO home from work and see no eagles

JudyE said...

I hear geese again

JudyE said...

shep in nest

paula eagleholic said...

Shep in the nest...was almost giving up hope for an evening visit.

JudyE said...

doing some last minute nestoration with stick in middle of nest

JudyE said...

so cool you can hear his every move

magpie said...

Kind of cute, Shep is getting some work done until his "Half Unit" shows up
that's how law enforcement folks refer to their spouses, as
Half Units

JudyE said...

BELLE

paula eagleholic said...

Beaking

Sandi said...

Hey, I see both eagles in the nest! Looked like Shep was interested in a little somethin-somethin when Belle first arrived, but Belle wasn't! =)

JudyE said...

poof belle

paula eagleholic said...

Belle off to the right...and there goes Shep too.

JudyE said...

poof shep

Sandi said...

Well, that was short! Poof and poof!

JudyE said...

I also thought he wanted HP but didn't get it

JudyE said...

I was about to type HP but then didn't I was recording it toooo

magpie said...

I hear crunching noises like deer on crusted snow
or maybe Eagles on the branches, btu I think, the former

Lolly said...

Hi Margy!! We are just home from running errands! Have accomplished a little today, but certainly did not push it.

Did not go to Denton, did not go to the boys first basketball games and both won!!! This is Jacob's first year and he scored two baskets. Woopeeeee! Jacob had math homework over the holidays. I saw that he got it done on Thursday. He did it so cheerfully and took correction cheerfully. So proud of him....I see hope for that boy!! Joseph I know is on the right track...now to be sure Jacob is there. :)

magpie said...

Lolly,
so good to "See You" here....
You are the most Whirling of Dervishes I know !
xoxo ♥

magpie said...

Hurry for the grandsons on their respective wins !

magpie said...

oh for goodness sakes:

HURRAY for the boys !!

magpie said...

Homework: I yearn for more time to do these things with James...I haven't even BEEN to his "new-to-him" school this year,
last year I was doing after school pickups almost every Monday
How I miss that!

magpie said...

Oh Joy
Jewels only has 65 minutes left on her 12 hour shift today!
Told her we need to clone her and put several more like her in the next training class!
Very true!
AND, that dear gal pal brought me a full bag full of tea lights from her Momma's house...for my next power outage !

Lolly said...

Jewels is taking care of you, Margy!

Just talked with Laurel. She is returning from the old house with yet another load. She asked if I missed her. lol Joey is headed over with the trailer. Hopefully Laurel will sleep in her own bed tonight!!

Lolly said...

She is also cooking her first meal in the new house. Yea!

They still have a ton to move. Laurel has emtied the house, but Joey still has all the "stuff" in the garage to move as well as all the "stuff" he has on the walls in his office. If only he had helped pack before this move!!!!!

Lolly said...

Emptied! Should do spell check!

Lolly said...

Oh, and they still have a swing in the backyard as well as the patio furniture. Geeeeesh! So much!!

Mema Jo said...

I have been to Mass - prayed - and now back home. Quiet evening ahead!

BBL

magpie said...

Oh
Jo
Joy

magpie said...

Lolly:
I DO hope you have some serious help with the Piano!
My nephew moved a piano this summer...legs removed, pedals removed, and had LOTS of grunt-help with it...

My nieces and I joked, we think their brothers thought things would just Fly Off the Shelves and land where they belonged....NOT!

magpie said...

the "Estate" did pay for some
superiour help from some good friends....there was NO way to do things otherwise.

magpie said...

It can be downright overwhelming, Lolly...
so Blessed that you and Jack are there for them !!!
Underscore, the !!!!

magpie said...

I just loved Wanda's report from last night, Jayden's wanting to spend the night with GG...

these little things that children say and do, are priceless ♥

Lolly said...

Jack and I are considering hiring a piano mover. The thing is there are two pianos!! Years ago we gave Laurel our piano for the boys. Michael is our piano player but he married a grand piano. lol Then Joey got his mother's piano which is in poor condition.
We encouraged him to sell it to no avail. We will pay to move one but not both. They do NOT need two!!

magpie said...

We lost a piano to exposure to the elements, Lolly, it was heartbreaking...it had to go to the dump :(
It was kept in a farm outbuilding that had leaks and critters

magpie said...

But I played chopsticks on it with great vigor before it hit the road

magpie said...

Daggone it!
Kay can read about but not SEE the live feed....
and can read but not blog......

HELLO ☼HI☼ Sunshine Kay!
Come back soon, when you can, we need you! ♥ ☺

Judie said...

Piano? Lost piano? Needing to discard a grand piano? Well, I know a place...

Judie said...

Forgot to check Phoebe today. Will do that first thing tomorrow. Two babes. Two cute.

Lolly said...

No need to discard a grand piano. lol However, do need discard a piano that will not play an important key.

JudyE said...

Hey KAY did you try clicking of the words under the cam to get the pop up
Today I couldn't get it to load again but I went to the blog page and click on the live feed there and it came up

magpie said...

I suggested maybe a System Restore..
Oh Red, Red...we could use your
expertise for Kay tonight!

the piano that hit the road
was an upright...
many things got lost to exposure, it was heartwrenching!
Hi Judie !!!

JudyE said...

lots of geese this late

JudyE said...

I posted the video of this evening visit first Shep was in the nest them the nite light came on the Belle arrived to where it looked like Shep ask for HP and that didn't happen
This evening late visit

JudyE said...

UPDATE FROM CARING BRIDGE

Lots of good play time today :)
Written 19 minutes ago

I've had a great day wth Isaac...lots of good play time! He is doing extremely well. Stats running strong and he seems to be tolerating the increased g-feed rate quite well. They are slowly transitioning him to bolus feeds and right now he is continuous feeds for 20 hrs then 4 hrs off. He was weaned another step on his pain meds today without any withdrawal symptoms & he is off all diuretics...PROGRESS!! To top it all of, we had a heat wave here today...30 degree weather...who neeeds a jacket for that?? I managed with a warm fleece even with the long walk to the train :-)

JudyE said...

to do system restore
click on your start in the left lower corner
go to Accessories
then to System Tools
then to System Restore
You will not loose anything at all
document or pictures It only
takes systm back to when it was running better
I googled it and found it out
System restore how to do it and what it does

JudyE said...

magpie said...

JudyE:
Actually what took place with Kay's computer is this:
her son in law went over her computer with a fine toothed comb and changed her server from Explorer to Firefox.
I think Kay is just waiting to get back together with her son in law about it....I just threw out system restore without really thinking it through....guess I might have mixed apples with oranges.
I betcha Kay will be back with us SOON

magpie said...

hearing what sounds like cows moaning

magpie said...

and now maybe something else...
does not sound like a dog to me;
the cow noises sound pretty normal

Judie said...

Wonderful news of Isaac's improvement. Wishing more and better for the little guy.

Ah, all things to be discarded...I know a place (:

Sure hope Kay's computer problem is solved pronto.

The sandperson has informed me he is off to visit the momsters/dadsters. The night light is on. Restful sleep for all.

Hoda said...

Well Thank you for the visit reports.

Alaska Tsunami Warnings came in to coastal BC last night before I went to bed. It is all good no tsunami...I am in the interior so not at all affected.I feel for the coastal people however. Thank you LORI and SHIRLEY.

SANDI I DO NOT like the sound of YEMEN!!! Yes he needs to learn Arabic but tell him even Arabs do not trust the Yemenis!!! The Tribal folks in particular they change their alegience to the highest bidder. NONE of the Romantic Poetry and being in Tribal Desert land. Tell him to always be on the look out and to watch over his shoulder regardless of how friendly they seem to be!!!
NOTHING I repeat NOTHING is as it seems in the Yemen!!! Make that his Mantra.
Sorry I needed to let you know...this is not a good assignement...

JUDIE I do not know if it is the lot of an immigrant but governments rule as a general rule tend to confuse me and scare me!!! It is important that I see them as human beings and the lessons come to me of late that they are just that. I became scared about not remembering the dates and in yoga pracrice all of Christmas week the women I practiced next to were from the Government office that I have to see to get help and submit my forms. I find that when I understand that they are only rules and they are really trying to help people I become less afraid...It is like fitting pieces of the puzzle that is my life. I also acknowledge that there are people who are less than honest with the governement and that is the culture that the workers have to take into consideration. I work with honest and I work with seeing human beings just like me trying to do their best in a situation...instead of bringing forth my fear I try to bring forth the best in me and in them and then it gets all resolved.
I will be well prepared. I will make a chart/ a time line and use it to fill the forms and take my documents with me and accept their help and feel gratitude for their being there doing their jobs. So much easier for those of you born here, but so much full of fortune to have immigrated and been accepted here and lived forty years of my life learning and searching and my potential is possible to realize...I am a very fortunate woman...



Mema Jo said...

Closing down for the day! Sleep well and may the eagles be in your dreams ♥

Hoda said...

Snowing here.Had a terrific day. Very happy with my trekking poles as I walked in the snow today and did not feel lippery at all. Irish and Scottish music fiddle and sometimes harp too...very good concert.
The visit with my friend was good she is an author and she wants to get her fifth book published and is working on creating fictional story...fun to hear her talk about character development...good insights.
Walked back and it was dark and the town is still decorated looked very pretty n the snow...people were friendly and cars were driving carefully and considerate of pedestrians.

Hoda said...

WOW Belle spent the night in the nest!!! Awesome...

Goodnight JO. SED

Judie said...

Hoda, the world could use millions more just like you.

Hi Jo.

Goodnight everyone.

Hoda said...

Bless you JUDIE Thank You.

Goodnight to you too and I will await the sandman I trust he is on his way...

magpie said...

Don't mean to be a copy cat, but I do indeed agree with Judie, Hoda...
The Golden Rule = The Hoda Way

And the Sandperson make a fast track to West Virginia

Prayers for Wellness All Around Amongst Us All

Great update on Isaac....his Mom has a joyful way with words

G'Night, Eagle Pals

God Bless Us,
Every One xo ♥

JudyE said...

wow the cam is so good you can see the rain drops I tough first snow

Hoda said...

No one in the nest I see JUDYE.
Goodnight MARGY Bless you...

Hoda said...

Goodnight...
Much gratitude for a good day and for the Friendships I have here.

SANDI Love and LIGHT your way and BRIAN'S. Please do not mind my thought on the Yemen.

PRAYERS♥

Janet said...

well i am up late and waxing sentimental. i've been on this blog for a year + now.... and thinking about how each of you have become a part of my daily life.... and how thankful i am that i accepted judy's invite that day....

took the kids (amelia and olivia) to the ice rink tonight. who knew it was so popular on a saturday night! must have been 300+ kids there, college age kids....some younger....

but the girls had fun. now they are in bed....and shortly i will be as well!

hope everyone has a pleasant evening....and a peaceful night sleep. good night!

Costume Lady said...

JANET, we are glad that you came for the eagles and STAYED FOR THE FRIENDSHIPS! You have added some new and interesting perspectives to our group! You are no longer a NEWBIE, you are a MOMSTER...welcome aboard!

Oh, it was so good to turn on the 'puter this morning and see the eagles...getting to be like 'old times':) Should have some eggs in about a month. Pray that we have, at least, two chicks!

GOOD NIGHT DEAR FRIENDS, love and prayers for all♥

Lolly said...

Ready for bed and headed that way!

Night all! SED!!!

Hoda said...

Happy Birthday Janet, and many many more. Love and Light coming your way the whole year

Hoda said...

Must be the snow storm we are having!!! MR. SANDMAN has lost his way and is no where to be found in Southern BC!!!

JUDIE are you up yet? Would you please redirect him?

Meanwhile I am having a cup of tea and I think I will go find a book to read...

Hoda said...

No one is sleeping in the nest at this hour of the morning. Empty Nest. Clear picture. Lovely...

DanaMo said...

Good morning!

Sandi said...

Good Sunday morning Hoda (if you're still here), Dana, and all my eagle friends!

Really wanted to sleep a little later this morning. But by 5:30, I was so sick of Denny's snoring that I wanted to suffocate him with my pillow. When I came downstairs, thinking I might go back to sleep on the sofa, I noticed the laundry room door was open (I keep it closed b/c one of my granddogs loves to use that room as his bathroom.) Sure enough, there were 2 different kinds of messes to clean up on the floor - not the way I wanted to start my day!!

Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO LYNNE2 AND JANET!!!

Sandi said...

Hoda, I'm not happy with Yemen as an assignment either, but I wasn't given a vote. He has already been in Pakistan, Iraq, and Afghanistan which didn't make me happy either. I can only do what any mother would do and pray that he stays safe.

MT nest at 6:28am.

DanaMo said...

Good morning Sandi. I have to keep the laundry room door closed too. If I leave it open its a smorgasbord for Boomerang! LOL! Sorry you had a nasty mess to clean up at this hour!

It's been a lazy weekend for me. I am getting so used to Monte being home and doing everything. What the heck. For years I have been here with the kids by myself why not take advantage while he is home.

grannyblt said...

GM any early risers. I see we have an MT nest today. Yesterday morning must have just been an oddity. I was happy to sleep past 530. I have been up early for months. I guess I don't need 8 hours of sleep anymore.

Sandi said...

Good morning Lynne1!

Denny and i will be going to the eagle nest this afternoon - supposed to be a sunny day and in the upper 40s. I won't see eagles like Glo sees eagles on her outings, but just seeing 2 will make my heart happy!

The pics Denny took the last time we went were all blurry - some setting got changed on Denny's camera. He has fixed it now. Sure wish he had a lens like Lori's or Glo's, since we are across the water from the nest. The dock that we found to sit on would be a perfect place to set up a tripod. Won't say a word to Denny about that b/c he would buy the lens and the tripod in a heartbeat! =)

JudyE said...

Good morning I hear chirping

Sandi said...

I hear an eagle call! Not in the tree though.

Sandi said...

Good morning Judy! The only thing I miss about my old desktop computer is that I had great speakers connected to it. The speakers on my laptop are pretty puny!

Lynne1, I thought it was a cow too, but if it is, the moos are awfully close together. So now I'm not sure.

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

OTWIT SYAL

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps.

T-Bird said...

JUDY E-I'm out of it. What are you saying?

Sandi said...

Good morning Thelma! How are you!! I've missed seeing you on the blog in the mornings! How is your brother-in-law doing?

Sandi said...

I think Judy meant to type
OTWIG SYAL
which stands for "Off To Work I Go, Se You All Later"
but she typed T instead of G
so maybe ...
Off To Work I Travel? =)
Off To Work I Traipse? =)

T-Bird said...

Thank you SANDI. I get it now.
Thank you SANDI, I have missed you all too.

T-Bird said...

My brother-in-law and Sis continue to need prayers. They are try to get used to his ostomy bag. It has been really hard. The doc told him he lost 19 lbs. in 30 days. He will start his chemo. and radiation soon.

If you are on fb you may have seen it but for others well lets just say there is still some puppy in my guy :-) HAGD everyone.
