i also like hummingbirds, diapered ones, and flying ones.

Jodi said...

Vicki, I grow mountain mint - the buterflies are crazy for it.

Stephanie Ann said...

Hey Jodi, That mint you gave me sprang up and is now like a tiny bush.

Jodi said...

Rayanne said...

Have a happy day dear.

Thank you for sharing your gratitudes this day.

What a lovely good morning gift to see your photos and words.

I especially love your "hummingbird."

keLi said...

oh, sweet hummingbird. i'll echo it, too: this made my day better.

Jodi said...

Rayanne, Jamie Oliver's cook book, Jamie's Dinners, has the best fish and chip recipe in my opinion. I did not make the ones you see above, but I ate them in New Zealand. Yum!

Jodi said...

Thanks everyone. The hummingbird is my grand-daughter, Magnolia Blossom. :)

Rachel said...

Enjoyed reading your list, now I am very hungry for some fish and chips! The hummingbird pictures so cute! The butterflies how neat we have lavender that attracts the bees and I enjoy watching and hearing them buzz around. Love the quote from Luther! Thankful to join in the gratitude of others!

Jennifer said...

Your hummingbird is darling! Thanks for sharing.

deb said...

I have to echo the love for your precious hummingbird. Granddaughter?

Kerrie said...

Ok, I have to add to the hummingbird love! She is adorable! I'm always so blessed to read your lovely list and see your lovely photos. :)

Kit said...

And fish and chips...Jamie Oliver...will have to try.

Kim Hyland said...

Oooh, I like these! Beautiful photos. The "hummingbird" made me laugh out loud . . still am!

Joan said...

Really great!
Hummingbird is best out of greats.
I needed that Martin Luther quote. Aah, the breeze of wisdom and humor!

That hummingbird put the biggest smile on my face -- thank you for sharing that! I give thanks for comfort food too -- if only it didn't make me feel quite so good. ;)

iron and wood, and textures... LOVE this.

Amy said...

Hi Jodi,

I noticed you comment on my mom's blog a lot (Rayanne) and I recognized your photo on Ann's Gratitude Group...I've just been reading through some of your lists. Inspiring! So glad I stopped by.

Love your little hummingbird....cutest one I've ever seen. :-)

Love, love, love your listing. I'll be following you!

Amy said...

I guess I should add that I'll be following you via my blogroll, since I don't see a 'follow me' on here. :-)

Kristi in the Western Reserve said...

Wonderful pictures! Especially the little hummingbird and the butterflies, too, and........and..........and.........

They're all great!

I see you visited me and left a lovely comment. I just posted and have not a change to get everyone's blog just yet.

I too am reticent and my blog normally only contains little kernels of my life. But I took the plunge in favor of camaraderie and honoring those who have been so kind and generous gracing my blog with their beautiful thoughts, and who themselves have a truly beautiful blog.
That is why I thought of you and wanted to give you these lovely awards, you so very deserve them. It is always a treasure to come to your blog, I feel so filled with loving kindness that emanates from your words and photos.

Cheers,
Joanny

Jodi said...

Joanny, now you're going to make me cry. xo

Amy said...

So, I do NOT know how I missed that 'friends' section up there. *blushing* I'm following now! :-)

Cheryl said...

Why is it that comfort food always heads straight for my hips? Seems so unfair. Love your very own hummingbird. So sweet.
