I can’t help it. The best show ever is taking place outside my door. I was gone most of today and couldn’t wait to get back and see the babies. But first I had to go to a store and buy a coffee maker. The one supplied by the theater (only 3 weeks old) died this morning. Really. When I realized this in the early am hours, I blindly drove to the gas station. There’s nowhere else to go in this small town on a Sunday morning. Truly terrible coffee. I love dark roasts and this stuff was very weak and bland. I wasn’t about to wake up on my day off tomorrow and drink more of that stuff.
Here are the little birdie updates (there are 3 babies.) If you’re not a fan of baby birds, you may want to move on to another blog.
These were taken as the sky darkened and big rain clouds threatened.
At this point, the tornado siren went off and suddenly we were under a tornado warning. But I kept snapping away.
Scary. Mama Robin had her beak open. She was stressed, too.
Sometime she sits on the babies and I see a beak – these little ones are lively.
The sun came out briefly and I tried again. But I think Mama had had enough.
If looks could kill. Okay, I’ll stop for the night.
I’m trying to record as much of this as possible. I might never have such a wonderful opportunity again!
Oh, I’ve been meaning to post this and keep forgetting to. You know how I feel about giveaways that make you jump through hoops, right? I really don’t think one should have to do anything other than leave a comment. Anything else is annoying and merely a way to add followers, etc. I saw something the other day that made me laugh out loud. (The name of the blog is not important.) After leaving a comment, you could gain more chances by doing the following:
1. Subscribe to the blog by email.
2. Follow (the blog) on Twitter.
3. Become a Follower.
4. Tweet about the giveaway. You could do it once a day.
5. Add a button.
6. Follow on Networked Blogs.
7. Follow the blog on Blogfrog.
8. Vote for the blog for some sort of best blog contest. You could do it once a day.
Is it just me or is this ridiculous? Now, to be fair, it was clear that this blogger was trying to earn money from blogging. But, come on. When I see something like this, I quickly move on. And I never visit that blog again.
Really missing my doggies today. I love you Scout and Riley.
Day off Monday. On the docket? Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and Target. And maybe a movie.
