Outside My Window… Those sparrows chirping & the chimney swifts flying all around. They live in our (duh) chimney and therefore don't ever have crackling fires during the cold weather. There a mirror at the back & kerosene lamps in there to give a beautiful glow . . . more no crackling fire. Why would we choose to board it up just so the birds can live there? Well, there's really quite a colony/flock of them now. This has been going on for years. Chimney Swifts eat mosquitoes. I dislike mosquitoes. I dislike mosquitoes more than I dislike having a roaring, crackling fire the couple of weeks out of the year when the weather is actually cold enough to build a fire. I dislike mosquitoes all year long.
I am thinking…that Shiloh (photo #2) & I will spend lots of time outside today, pulling weeds, carting to chickens. The compost pile is in the chicken yard. Photo #1 They kind of speed up the process. Besides that - we couldn't agree on a place outside the chicken yard to put it! Saw the idea at MC & decided that's what we need to do.
I am thankful for… some of the parents' mystery being solved. At least for the time being. Photo #3
From the kitchen...dishwasher running & a butternut squash waiting to be dinner tonight.
I am wearing… white capris. I now have two pairs & will be wearing white capris twice as often. I wanted you to know that so you wouldn't think I never change clothes. Black shirt. Speedo flip flops.
I am going… to work out in the yard after calling Charlotte & parents.
I am reading… Ali Edwards blog. And Stacy Julian too.
I am hoping… today is uneventful. I happen to like uneventful. And a bit of boring would be nice every now and again too. Excitement is highly over rated.
I am hearing… Those sparrows. I bet in the future it will be easy for a non-techie person like me to add sound to a blog. Those sparrows are really enjoying this cool morning.
Around the house…still a mess. If you would walk in, you would focus on the messes because they're so "out there". But there's lots of bits & pieces of art, beauty, & creativity. That's what I'm trying to focus on, 'cause there isn't time to take care of ALL the messes.
One of my favorite things…those chirping birds. They sound so happy. And busy.
