I forgot about our Hawk

Wednesday, May 27, 2009 1:45 PM

We were sitting, enjoying the morning, and a Redtail Hawk came flying through the yard. He hit a Dove at about 60 mph, then realized he was out of air before hitting the fence. He dropped the Dove and flew into a tree. I discarded the Dove and he kept coming back looking for it. He was beautiful! He would sit on the fence and look around. We couldn't figure out if he was looking for his breakfast or looking at the kittens for a new meal? The Blue Jays raised so much ruckus for so long, he finally left. Of coarse, I thought about the camera after he left for the last time. :( Amber thought it was sad; I thought it was amazing. A little sad, but how often do you get to see something like that?

We have a Redtail Hawk that comes around every day. I see it flying over...run for the camera...but could never get the picture snapped at the right moment. Not too long ago it landed on a light pole in our pasture, I got so excited because I had the camera. I didn't get a very good picture, though. It was just a little too far and the lighting was wrong. He just sat and looked at me for a bit then flew away. I've seen him several times since, but always flying too high for a picture. The crows give him a hard time around here. They gang up on him, flying and cawing - making a terrible ruckus. The Redtail Hawk is a beautiful bird and I always enjoying seeing them soaring in the sky.

Amber started the company by perfecting her candles and melts. The boss spoke and I started researching soap and bath products. I had no idea of the benefits of handmade! The more I read, the more I was intrigued with the overall process and benefits. We keep our products as natural and pure as possible. The waxes and oils were carefully chosen, so you get the very BEST. Our candles are hand poured, one at a time. Our soaps are specially formulated and poured batch by batch.
