Every day this week through to Sunday is still Easter, so, once again — Happy Easter!
It’s been a varied week of battling a cold, battling someone’s seriously disrupting buttinskyism, and helping here-daughter re-do a room upstairs while she also tries to ready for a week-long vacay down south with 4 kids from 4.5 to 17. The laundering and packing of summer clothes and bags alone has been a heroic undertaking! She has a small sedan, but she’s done it before, so…..
Other than that, my window on the world has proved a quiet spot — at least on my side of it!
It was a 5-squirrel morning a couple of days ago. One of those miscreants found an Easter Bunny’d egg on Sunday:
Two goldfinches sat on the opposing feeders one noontime in the sun. They weren’t eating, so I presumed they were flirting. Or maybe it was just a sunbathing out of the strong wind. I prefer the flirting idea. The sit went on for at least 15 minutes; I finally gave up on grandfinches.
After a while, a rather overstuffed mourning dove chose the top of one of the feeders to self-bathe upon. He’d have made a fine cat.
A red-winged blackbird yesterday did its best to balance on a tiny birdfeeder perch, flapping the whole while and scree-ing a couple of times like a hawk which fortunately didn’t attract any!
However, I did spot a pink ribboned adorbs from a different window:
Maybe she’s thinking that some other Easter day, she’ll be one of those who gets one of these sets from her Auntie who knows the Easter Bunny personally:
I think that’s what she was saying here:
When things got too bright in my usual window, I drew down a paper shade.. the lilac bush just beyond the window became a Japanese screen:
I hope your unexpected gifts are abundant, too.
