Well, this morning at least one of the baby birds left the bird house. This is what I observed.....mom & dad came with food over & over again for one little bird. It was sitting on the opening of the house the whole time. After many trips with food from his folks, the mom & dad flew over to a near by branch of the cedar tree and the baby followed. Eventually, it flew away. Then mom & dad did the same thing with another baby. I wasn't home long enough to see if it also flew away but will be able to tell in the morning if the bird house is now empty. I wonder if mom & dad birds feel the same when their babies leave the nest as human mom & dad do. It's been awhile since my "baby birds" left the nest but I don't remember being exactly happy about it.
I got so much done today, I couldn't believe it. But of course I was gone from 10:30am until almost 4:30pm. Sunday will be a busy day again. The church I attend is having their annual picnic after the morning service. Based on the first letter of my last name, I'm supposed to bring dessert. I got a yummy looking peach pie at Costco today, so I'm set. A friend and I made the "sample rounds" at Costco. They had some yummy stuff. Who said there's no free lunch ?? Until next time. Linda
P.S. One of the things I did today, was go back to my local library to check out the books that are for sale. Today I got 8 books for $6.00. Some are like new, what a deal huh? I feel like a squirrel gathering nuts for the winter.
