I have an on-going fight with a pair of starlings. They are intent upon building their nest within the lid of my propane tank, which I can observe from my kitchen window. I have stuffed their access entry with steel wool, but they sometimes succeed in moving it enough to continue. The other morning I ran outside to make a quick adjustment. A guy driving by on the road slowed way down and stared. I waved, wondering if I knew him. Upon returning to the house, I realized why he was staring…
On a kinda cool note … I made a book on Shutterfly using pictures I have taken of our animals. My son is practicum teaching in 2nd grade. While I was showing him some pictures I had taken, the book idea evolved for something for “his” class; a gift for the teacher he is working with. Yesterday, he presented it to the class and it was a hit! 🙂 This is probably my favorite picture:
Good lil’ Pumpkin Pie!
I need to get back on the “project” room. I quit pulling up the flooring the other day when I sprained my wrist. The wrist feels much better now, it is cold and ucky out; so work will resume. Here is what the wood floor looks like under the linoleum:
I won’t decide until all the flooring is removed … but should I leave it as the painted red or have it sanded and re-done? Hmmmm, not sure. Your thoughts?
I hope you enjoy your day – snow, rain, sun or clouds.
