Yesterday I spend a lovely afternoon with my niece, nephew and their children. I was also lucky enough to spend time with my sister-in-law who had come to take care of the kids while my niece and her husband fly to Amsterdam for the weekend. This will be their first visit and a chance for them to check out housing, etc.
I have been mowing, mulching, scraping paint off the cabinet, and listening to the hungry cries of the baby starlings on our porch. I’ll try to get a picture when they finally show their faces. Right now, momma and daddy are spending all day, every day, flying back and forth with food for the little ones. Such dedication! Its amazing to watch their single-minded quest for food for the babies. When I work on the cabinet, I do it around the corner from the nest so as not to disturb the starling family. Believe me, if either parent catches sight of me I receive a major scolding.
I planted a lilac bush in our yard the other day. Every old house should have a lilac bush, don’t you think?
I have two new pieces of McCoy. The vase is an Ebay acquisition and the lovely coral centerpiece bowl is one of two pieces my friend gave me. Aren’t they beautiful?
Have a wonderful day.
