~ Just Magic ~


Take a look what I saw out front this morning.
Actually, every morning when I wake up, I always see something different out front. But one thing that always captures me are the wildlife we see at our place. This morning was just magnificent. I woke to see a family of Kookaburra's sitting in my Poinciana tree. They were playing in the sun. I watched them for awhile whilst drinking my coffee. That's when I knew it was already a great day! Even if nothing else happened all day!
