Curiosity, A Stream and A Peacock

06 Aug

1   Curiosity landed on Mars! Isn’t that just a lovely thing to hear? I love that name!

2   I parked near a stream this morning when I went to meet my Baby Naming family. It was so lovely. The sound of the water was beautiful, the reeds lovely and the whole experience very peaceful and I loved it. I just wish I could give you the sound as well as a photo.

3   Driving home from a fabulous choir session tonight (where my part was changed to my initial consternation but in fact it is a beautiful part that suits my voice even better! Thank you Claire and I’m sorry I was grumpy!) I came across this peacock in a garden!  I stopped to take a picture but was somewhat hurried so unfortunately it’s a bit blurred but how often does that happen?!

    We stayed a farm a few years ago and they had peacocks that would roam all over. Beautiful birds with a very interesting sound! I tried to get pictures but they would not stand still long enough…guess they were shy! 🙂 Patty

      How lovely! Maybe his shyness was why my photo was blurred!

    I haven’t been following Curiosity too much so I need to catch up on that! But I love the pictures of the little stream and the peacock–I bet they chased the ‘grumpies’ away for you 🙂

      As I learned the new harmony, the grumpies went but seeing the peacock was just delightful! 🙂

    One can only stand in awe of what happen today on the landscape of Mars.

      I so agree. It makes me goose-bumpy to think about it! 🙂

      It was very strange to meet a peacock! Glad I could make you smile, dear Nia 🙂

    I love the peacock which is so beautiful and regal in the middle of a driveway 😀
    And Curiosity is an awesome name!

      Curiosity is such a perfect name for what it is doing too.Meeting the peacock was just so completely unexpected and as you say, so regal! 🙂
