Brothers Campfire Saturday, Somewhat Scrambling!

Hello Friends!

Today is a scrambled up Saturday as I have a lot to do today!

Watering the garden, feeding the birds and getting ready for work have kept me busy this morning. Prepare for random!

Like Really Random

My friend, Pooja Rani, who drew a Campfire picture for my personal use gave me a link to a really cool artist.

I am not one to promote art sites, but Nanan’s Blog is off to a great start. Having spoke to Nanan, I discovered that she is learning art from YouTube. If you get the chance, check it out. She has very realistic drawings that are beyond fantastic. While I am giving a shlut out to some of my artist friends, I will take the time to showcase my art.

Not Really. This is courtesy of Pixabay. Mine is not nearly as good.

Moving on to the next random….

I fed my new ducks some leftover fried rice today. They loved it! I tried to record it, but they are afraid of the Cyclops.

They really do not like Cyclops.

Here are some photos of my attempt. I found it notable that the boy goose stepped out to the forefront.

All the ducks moved to the corner when I tried to take a picture.
The goose shoves his way to the front.
I will face the Cyclops, little duckies!

Here is a quick video of my recording attempt!

Onwards to more random. My beloved is working on decorative feather macrame. It has to to with wall art or something. Lots of knots.

I can probably find these in my backyard for free!

Apparently, you spray glue on these macrame feathers to stiffen them and hang them on a stick. Perhaps you all know about it, but I most certainly do knot!

In other news, we recently purchased a broken dryer from a company.

Looks cool though.

I am going to give them a chance to make it right. Perhaps an evil Alchemist from another dimension is responsible for it not working.

Well friends, I am off to work! I look forward to hearing from you in the comments! Remember,

          They are a lot bigger. They are vigilant. I have seen my goose chase medium sized dogs away from the smaller birds.

          When you get married, I am going to throw pre cooked rice to save the birdy stomachs.

          1. Lydia Potter says:

            You mean the old fashion thing at weddings where they blow bubbles now or light firecrackers and sparklers?

          2. Lydia Potter says:

            Yuck. So mean. You won’t be able to do that anyway, because you’ll be the best man.
            Yep!!!!!!!!!!!! Boom boom bang!

          3. Benjamin says:

            Being involved in your 💒 wedding? I would so do that.

          4. Lydia Potter says:

            I would love that. I can’t pick the best man and groomsmen though. My guy would have to do that.

          5. Lydia Potter says:

            I’ll try to convince him about you. Just start practicing with some good behavior. 😉
            Oh YES!!!!! how could I forget

          6. Benjamin says:

            Ha ha! What behaviors do I need to clean up for the big day?

          7. Benjamin says:

            Wow, I did not know I would be planning like this. Can I wear my favorite hat?

          8. Benjamin says:

            Even outdoors? That’s where I planned on throwing pre cooked rice, little sister!

          9. Lydia Potter says:

            I’m not having an outdoor wedding. It’s a in church.
            Ok big brother but I told you not to throw rice if you’re my best man.

          10. Benjamin says:

            Ok. No rice. No hats indoors. Hey, did my Beloved talk to you about sending a graduation gift?

          11. Benjamin says:

            That was forever ago! Let us know where you would like it sent. 📫

          12. Herb says:

            I thought all southerners like “butter beans.”

          13. Herb says:

            I wonder sometimes if you aren’t just a Yankee wannabe.

          14. Herb says:

            I mean, it’s not like you’re over-arguing about it or anything.

          15. Herb says:

            He’s learning. He’s a born Yankee, though, not a wannabe.

          16. Herb says:

            Which do you want, Best man or good behavior?

          17. Benjamin says:

            I’m not sure why I would be. I have the best little sister in the World!

          18. Benjamin says:

            Well, I have the best little sister on Mercury, Venus, and Earth!

          19. Benjamin says:

            Then you wouldn’t be able to fit in your wedding dress down the road.

    So love your duck duck goose … that goose is so big compared to the others 😄😄 love them!

    My grandfather used to have pigeons… he would raise them – they all had tags on their ankles – and he would race them… usually from Connecticut to Massachusetts – but it would be so cool watching them come home!!! Sooo cool!!! They always came home

    I have never heard of or have ever seen that feather thing either lol… interesting… what to you do after you hang them on a stick? Is just decoration?

    1. Benjamin says:

      I want to raise pigeons eventually. I am just not set up for it and the hawks Will get them where I live! I guess the macrame is for decoration. I will keep you updated as I learn more about it! Be safe and don’t let your job get you down!

      1. Omatra7 says:

        We have Hawks here too… Oh my god! On their wing span 😮😳😱

        The feathers are very beautiful and incredible work to make!!! Did your wife make those 😮

          1. Omatra7 says:

            That would be amazing!!!

            And wow… she is quite talented!! Tyvm!

          2. Benjamin says:

            I called her up she is going to try and document it for us! Hawks are pretty big! One of the reasons I have elected to get ducks is that they are heavier and feisty.

    so many sweet things you’ve touched on here – lovely post 🙂

  3. Shreya says:

    The geese are so cute !
    Love those feather macrames <3
    I most certainly did "knot" know what a macrame was either and found out only after googling. Love this post. Keep blogging. 🙂
