Before the snow on one of our nicer days the cowboy noticed a lot of dried grass around one of my car tires—seems the robins thought the top of the tire on the Cadillac might make a nice, sheltered place to build a nest!!! Well—think again bird!! Michael removed all that grass and we drove the car. Yesterday I was out braving the cold wind playing ball with Emmi and noticed the grass again—this time the dumb birds had built the entire nest—have you ever removed a robin’s nest—I chose not to think about what that gunk is which holds that nest together! Sorry robins—go find somewhere else to build your nest!
Do you have a FitBit—I wear one on my wrist but I sure question the accuracy at times. Once a week an email appears giving me the weekly stats--
OK—if I’ve burned almost 16,000 calories in a week I should be a walking bean pole, right???Well, I’m not!! Do I really walk that much?? The FitBit tells me I walk more than 10,000 steps—five miles—per day. I do go up and down the stairs of this house many, many times a day in addition to our morning walk with Emmi but really???
Back in Arizona I wrote about losing my quilting mojo—having no interest in sewing anything. Well, the mojo has come back—I quilted a customer/friend quilt and she picked it up today. She loved it—isn’t that a cool log cabin pattern! I’ve also been working on a small quilt and am going to start longarm quilting some of my own quilt tops—I have quite the stack!
Beautiful day today—Emmi spent lots of time outside. Our spring/summer birds are arriving—we’ve had goldfinches, rosy red finches and one lone lazuli bunting.
