mchalej As I witnessed this bird gracefully step into the spotlight, I was challenged to exercise humility whenever I have an opportunity to shine. Arrogance too often ruins the effect. 2mon

mchalej I know the beach is being dredged, but I like to think that it's just people trying to build giant sandcastles. 4mon

mchalej One of Sarasota's beaches has endured terrible erosion, to the point that some parts are unwalkable even at low tide. Just this week, the county finally began a dredging project to replace the sand that washed away. If all goes according to plan, the beach should be restored again by March! 4mon

  •   mchalej @hedgey_ Thanks, Brad! I never expected beach dredging to be beautiful, but you can always find beauty when you're purposely looking for it. 4mon

  •   mchalej @hedgey_ Autocorrect is very silly. Mine wants to change Jayme to Haynes. Haha! Jayne is actually not too far off. My mom came up with the spelling of my name because she liked Jayne spelled with a 'y'. 3mon

mchalej Growing up in Michigan, I dreamt of snowless, warm Christmases, and the Sunshine State definitely delivers.
Here's hoping your CHRISTmas was one of joyous celebration with those dearest to your heart. And, if you wished for snow, I hope it blanketed your little corner of the world.

mchalej Yesterday, @val7val and I supported a walking fundraiser for a local, no-kill cat shelter, @Cat_Depot. Of course, we were desperate to take home all the sweet cats and kittens available for adoption; but, with three indoor cats of our own, plus six feral cats that we feed on our back porch, we knew adding more to that mix just wouldn't be smart. And so, we left empty-handed, but with plans to become regular volunteers at the shelter.
Turns out, we were destined to rescue a cat after all! On the beach last night, we found this tiny gal, abandoned and about to be attacked by hungry seagulls. Say hello to Peaches. :)
