Clean Sheets

Mama Bird Was Curious

They have all moved out of home and into their new abodes. Although I love this nest now clean and quiet, I miss their noise and … no! I don’t miss their mess!!! I wanted to see their new homes. This Mama bird was curious as to how they were doing. So the Papa bird […]

All in a Vacuum

They’ve gone. After all the noise and activity  of this Christmas holiday period they are gone. Within three days the nest was vacated. And I am all in a vacuum. But very grateful for those Boxing Day Sales that had each of them sent on their way with a new vacuum cleaner to start life […]
