Wild Wednesday

  Today my wildlife picture comes from Sneads Ferry in North Carolina.  That’s right near Topsail Beach.  Check it out.

  He’s one big alligator.  He was stopping traffic trying to get across the road.  The gator was caught and relocated.  Hopefully he’ll stay away from the area now.  
  Alligators are all around where I live.  The preserve that they relocate alligators to is right across the street from me.  My neighbor had one in his pond.  We have learned to look around really well when we venture out of the house.  The truth is that they usually see you and run away.  But, if they are hungry they will go after a small child or animal.  And during mating season, they do get a bit testy.  🙂  
  It is so sad about the little 2 year old who was taken by an alligator at Disney.    My heart breaks for his family. I don’t know how they will be able to live with what happened.  I pray that the Holy Spirit gives them the strength to get through this tragedy.  
  I am spending my day putting my quilting room back together.  Before we went to Florida, I rushed around getting a few projects done to take with me.  So, I sorta tore through my quilting room like a tornado leaving stuff all over in there.  There are a few projects I would like to get finished.  My UFO list is pretty long.  I read over what I have to finish and I don’t even have half of what I need to finish on my list.  I am bound and determined to work on UFO’s before I start on any new quilts.  Now, that doesn’t mean I won’t sew for my Isabella.  I love making little girls dresses.  🙂  When Alannah was younger I made her dresses too.  It was so much fun.  
  Have a great day!
