I must admit, I would've totally missed Saturday night's moon had my friend Terri not texted me (as I was sitting comfortably in my jammies by my fireplace, relaxing after returning home from a busy-but-fun week of travel) to get my camera and take a photo of the gorgeous moon.
Yesterday as we were driving to church, the sun was brilliant and the ice-covered trees and grasses appeared diamond-studded....an absolutely gorgeous January morning.
Anyone who lives in the Midwest knows all too well...we're in the midst of an Arctic deep freeze that's not going to be letting up any day soon.
Winding down our fabulous three-week trip to Peru, we knew beforehand that after the fun-but-hectic itinerary we'd need a couple of days to relax and unwind before we came home.
The Amazon jungle is an incredible place, so far removed from our normal life that it often felt like we'd been transported to another planet, another time.
Here's your trivia question for the day...What is a large group of parrots called? I had no idea...it's called a "pandemonium"! Crazy! I tried posting this video yesterday of the clay lick we hiked to in Peru, but the website got all wonky and I got frustrated and removed it. So thought I'd try it again, all by its lonesome. Enjoy the pandemonium!
Our third day in Peru's Manu National Park began very early, leaving before daybreak at 5:20 am. in the boat to beat the parrots that come each morning to this clay lick.
