Favorites of the week:
*Cleaning up the trees and shrubs in the backyard. (Thanks Little Big Brother for the chainsaw and clipper use! And for lending a hand.)
*New bird feeders to hang in branches-- that we can now see. Here are two of them.
The first one I made from a 2 liter bottle and a pencil. Quite stylish and classy. No?
*The discovery of the old green shutters that used to be on the house. I'm thinking I might be able to use them in creating the Emerald City skyline next fall. How? I don't know. I'll think about that tomorrow, said Scarlett. My brain has been used up with bird feeders!
*Rain. We've had a couple of inches. All my plants have perked right up. (Well, except the one that is drowning. Darn flower pot!)
*Texts, Facebook, and Instagram for keeping up with family. Catching up with Little Sis and the California nieces- potty training stories and new houses and cars, another niece making it home from Austria, her counterpart visiting all kinds of awesome places in Europe, and a nephew turning 21. (OK. He might have told me not to follow him on Twitter for a week or so. Smart boy!) These things make the world a bit smaller, and the people I love seem a lot closer.
And those are My Favorites this Friday. Care to share yours?
