New Look!

What do you think?

Baby Crow

Day 1- I discovered a baby crow in the back yard. Josh didn't think it was a baby because it was so big. You could tell because he had really short tail feathers and when mama or papa would come down to the ground he would open his mouth making a noise that only meant one thing... "feed me"!















Mama or Papa - watching over! They never went far. They flew around and made lots of noise at me when I went out to take photos.














Day 2. I made Miles go out on a lease during the night because I didn't know where he was sleeping.
I found him in the morning hanging out in my veggie garden.















I guess their eyes are blue when they are little and then turn black. I don't think his eyes were blue- I think it was the flash.

Hoping around the yard.














Later that day he was on the wine crate I keep in front of the compost bin. He was flapping his wings. Next thing I knew he was on top of the compost bin and then finally up onto the fence where he hung out for a bit.







I was worried because I saw a cat on the fence a bit later- Baby bird was in the tree and finally the cat fell off the fence. I assume he is okay and can fly.






So now I have empty nest syndrome because my little crow grew up and flew away! They grow up so fast!

love to sew

hate following a pattern. Trying to make pj's for my nephews (supposed to be for Christmas 2009) and I just hate the pattern. It should be easy but I can't figure out the neck. Thinking of going with the bottoms only and call it good.

I have a lot of material because I had the idea I would make them pj's and the Bug pj's for Christmas. Well I have 1 pair of pants almost done and 1 shirt started. Thinking of just making the bug a bunch of comfy shorts for the summer. He can lounge around and sleep in them.

I hate following a pattern!!!!

I made the Bug a blanket. I just sewed two pieces of fleece together and turned it right side out and sewed up the opening. Easy and done! Love it.

The material is so cute. Blue with little fun animals all over it and the other side brown with cream polka dots. I will get a photo tomorrow when he gets up and I give it to him.

hope there is some sun tomorrow and not just at 7pm. I need to mow the lawn and do some yard work.

Grown up!

Doesn't he look big in this photo... like he shouldn't be sitting in a little high chair?
















Mad because I won't let him have the camera or my phone. Life is hard for a little guy. He is eating his first popsicle of the summer and not really sure what to do with it. Either put it on the ground or let Miles lick it!














My Mountain Laurel- finally blooming. I didn't think it was going to bloom. It didn't last year. Love the closed up buds. They look like little frosting flowers you would find on a cake!















My Potatoes! Going crazy. I love at night they tighten up and pull their leaves in close to the stem.















Memorial day BBQ!














































Cross stitch I finally got around to finishing... a gift for a friend whose birthday was in April. Oops!
