Not a whole bunch to blog about tonight. No pics because I left my camera at home (shameless!). I am using Geoff's PC while he is gone (will get to that in a minute) and Nellie, Boomer and Bailey are all snoring. Boomer is laying on my feet... it's quite cozy.
Geoff is at a book signing tonight at a country club in Dayton, Oh. Whose book is being signed this evening? Why, HIS, of course. This book was written last year, for a local hospital that is celebrating its 80th anniversary, and someone thought Geoff would do a good job. And he did.
So, here I sit at a foreign computer (because mine is in the basement and the girls are sleeping up here and our baby monitors haven't worked in years) while my DH is probably sipping champagne and dipping into the caviar with all those rich, important doctors at the country club. Mr. Fancy Pants.
I had yet another program to give today to Cub Scouts. So what, you say?
These boys are between the ages of 6 and 9. That's a big age difference if you are trying to keep them all interested in something, at the SAME TIME.
The girls have a long school day tomorrow, so maybe I can go out and see some good birds. BTW: I got two life birds this week: Least flycatcher, and a golden-crowned kinglet. They were both out by the feeders, but of course not eaying seeds, but bugs. Sigh...I love my yard. Lots of critters for other critters to eat. Okay, here comes a rant:
Nearly everyone on our street uses "Chemlawn" or "Scott's" etc, and they have these pristine, sterile-looking yards. And guess what? They also have NO BIRDS, or racoons, or deer or possums or anything cool to look at. Yeah, their kids can do a somersault on their lawn. Big deal. My girls can go sit on our lawn and find about 20 different kinds of bugs in about a minute. And Isabelle, my almost-five year old can identify almost as many birds as I can.
So, neighbors, you can just go on doing what you are doing. We will take ALL of the bugs, and we will have all the birds.
My heart has wings.
