Wannabe Art

A place where one old woman shares her daily ups and downs and her attempts at art with strangers and friends out in Internet land.

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.

Nature is such an interesting thing to watch. You can learn so much by observing animals and their natural instincts. I had a robin build a nest on a chair on my deck underneath my table. At the time my oven was broken so I had to sneak out onto my deck in order to light and cook on my grill. I was able to observe the bids daily without scaring them from the comfort of my couch.
