Good morning. Tis another beautiful sunny day here in New England. Much as I'd love to go out shopping, I think I may have to stay close to home today. Pogo and I went out shopping yesterday with Dwarf Helen and it just about did me in.
Goodness, my head and my mind have all these awesome ideas of things to do, but the body is just not cooperating. It gets rather frustrating at times. I'm so used to being able to do whatever I set out to do. I've always been a very busy person. Now it takes a lot of effort to just sit in a chair. Go figure!
Yesterday, we had a wonderful time browsing through a warehouse store. (they seem to have a bit of most everything) On the way home, we stopped by McDonalds for lunch and Pogo had his usual double hamburger. I bought extra French fries to feed to the birds. There's always a flock of hungry seagulls near a restaurant.
When we got home, and I rested a bit, I went out to check on the robin's nest. Woo Hoo! The eggs have hatched! Wow! I can see Mama robin taking things to the nest, but I'm too far to get a decent photo. Besides, when she notices me, she either flies away or covers her babies with her body.
When Joe got home from work, I asked him to get a photo with my phone. This is our best photo for now. I'll keep trying. The babies look like a blur of orangey brown colored feathers. One little bird has his head up enough that you can make it out. (on the left side of the nest)
The new tick spray that I ordered for Pogo arrived, so today I'll get to try it out. It's supposed to be safe for cats and dogs of all ages, and can be used on their bedding. It contains no harsh chemicals or drugs. (Made in Austin, Texas) Here's hoping it works.
Ah, Pogo just took off running to the storm door. He saw the mail truck going down the street (the opposite direction from us) so now he knows that the mailman will be here in a little while. Barking at the mailman is one of the highlights of Pogo's day.
Now I'm going to take my Nebulizer meds and do a bit of blog reading. So, till Sunday, Y'all have an awesome weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
