I'm still around...just have been busy entertaining my two grand kids. They are with me for 6 weeks every summer. I enjoy their company but it does limit my time in my sewing room. I just got a new fancy camera for my 42nd wedding anniversary...so I have been using it on the grand kids and on a wren family that decided to make their nest and raise their young on a downstairs book case that holds cans of paint in my hubby's workshop. I was lucky enough to be down there when the four young birds decided that they were ready to leave the nest. They popped out one at a time...fluttered to the ground and then encouraged by their doting parents headed to the wooden steps at the back of the workshop. They gathered here in a big huddle and rested...I took pictures...and then they just took off...wobbling at first and then boom they were sitting up in the trees chirping away. Their parents had worked hard for the last two weeks feeding them...sometimes it seemed they worked from dawn to dusk gathering juicy little bugs for their four hungry babies. I know that at the end of the day they were truly tired. It is a shame that all of the human children in the world don't have such devoted parents.
