As I was mowing yesterday I glanced up to check on that nest I’ve been watching for a year now. If you recall I wondered if it was an oriole nest. The nest was gone! I immediately looked on the ground and there it was in very bad condition.
I laid it back together and the most startling sight was the lining of the nest – fiberfill! The dogs tear toys apart and I’m always picking up clumps of stuffing in the yard. Evidently the oriole thought her baby birds would be comfortable with soft stuffing to sleep on. Much of this is assumption – I’m truly guessing but it makes sense.
The dogs were so hot this afternoon, we went in the shop and turned on the air. Have any of you watched the series Homeland? I have been watching Season One while I sew in the shop and I am loving it! I finished Season One tonight and have Season Two waiting.
Book Review—Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf
I ordered the book through Amazon, it arrived yesterday at 3 pm and I finished it by noon today -that’s how much I loved this book! A widow and a widower become friends to ward off loneliness – that’s all I’m going to tell you. It was excellent and written straightforward with few details to clutter up the story line.
Stay cool, everybody!
