It is the end of what was a really nice weekend and it wasn’t just because we were child-less (although that was really nice too). The boys are back from their camporee and Tim was elected to Order of the Arrow so after he endures his Ordeal, that will make all three boys that are in the Order. Pretty neat. It was a beautiful weekend here, the rain that was supposed to come today has held off until either later tonight or tomorrow. We were able to get some yardwork chores done this morning and this afternoon in between me taking pictures – gosh I LOVE my camera.
Spring has definitely sprung, although it’s still not warm enough during the day to extract the honey. The hives are stacked up in the potting shed, we are just waiting for a nice warm day.
Tom found this nest in the barn and Momma bird let me actually take some pictures.
We dropped Tom’s mother off at the train station in Bellows Falls Saturday and then took a drive over to Keene. While we were there we discovered a great Thai restaurant on Main Street and enjoyed a delicious late lunch which was a real treat.
I drove my truck Wednesday afternoon at 5 p.m. last before I left for Boston Thursday morning. I came home Saturday morning and at 10 a.m. when I left the house, we found this.
The nest was cemented with mud to my tire and took some elbow grease to get out. The birds have swung into high gear for nesting for the two days I was away, and I feel bad that I had to evict them. We put the nest close-by in the hopes that the builders might find it and still make use of it.
