Oh my, it feels so calm. Heidi is sleeping in the chair – she still hasn’t confessed where she was for 10 days.
Here’s some more interesting “fun news”. Do you remember that nest we talked about last year that was hanging right outside my porch? We wondered if it had been an oriole nest and when it came down it was lined with fiberfill from the dog toys that were torn apart. Strangely enough I finally located the baby birds I kept hearing from the porch this summer. Sure enough – it’s an oriole nest hanging in almost the exact same location and I see the parents feeding the noisy babies all the time! Yes, a pair of orioles stayed and raised a family right outside my porch door. Here is a picture of the nest which isn’t very good – the nest is really hidden.
I’m sure today is a day of preparation for the 4th of July weekend for many of you – food to prepare mostly which I am doing, too. We have a couple events to attend but I’m looking forward to some sewing time, a movie, a pizza and a good book. And I hope to finish my little rug/runner!
