Wild Bird and Tidbits
Our excitement yesterday, was a bird that fell down the chimney. We got it out, but not without some screaming and a broom (that would be me). It ended with our 18-year old taking it out with gloves on.
It flew to the front yard, and immediately went searching for food. It was some sort of black bird this time. The last time it was a baby robin.
I awoke yesterday, to a non-working computer monitor. It was on the fritz. It's old.
Since I had the early morning time to myself, I sipped hot coffee on the porch and read a bit before starting my day.
I did my morning chores later, and whatnot, and then decided to beat on the thing (the monitor). My 18 year-old says, she won't be calling me for tech support when she is off at college. Ha ha!
I got it to work too. For the time being anyway. My older brother saved me by bringing us another one. Phew.
I'm feeling much better now, so even though it's Sunday, we may be splitting some wood. If the ground is dry enough anyway. We still have huge pieces to tackle.
