babies 007

Awww!   Ain’t they cute?

I was able to watch the whole thing since they hatched in the middle of the afternoon.  An hour later, they were swimming up the creek.

But. But. I Just Wanted to Play!

Olive caught a Mole

May 19, 2009

She was so proud of herself, she wanted to bring it in to show everyone.  We wouldn’t let her in, so she played with it for a while on the sandpile.  I don’t think she ate it.  Too much fur.

I managed to get about half of my flowers planted on Saturday.  Yesterday, it rained, and I had knitting group.  I’ve been working on my Red Bird socks.  As usual,   I am thoroughly enjoying these socks.

Playing with new Software

May 9, 2008

You know, you can fiddle with it just so long and then you have to do something else.  I downloaded more pictures and video this morning.  I had gotten into the habit of deleting pictures after I downloaded them, but now I don’t know how.  I am so blind that I needed a full size picture in order to decide.  I also need to figure out how to put videos into my blog.  I tried to get Maude screaming to go out, but she just looked at me like I was some kind of idiot.  I guess I will have to go get the manual and give up playing around, but not today.

  Here’s some of the goslings with Mama.  There are three families that come through.  It’s usually in the early morning or evening, but these were kind enough to stop by in the middle of the afternoon.

 

 

 

 

Here’s a young Great Blue Heron.  This was taken during low tide.  He was walking along the edge of our little island. 

Do you see why it is hard to get me to go anywhere?  

 

 

 

 

I think I should have made the flap a little bigger.  At least I remembered to put in a buttonhole.  I have the pattern about half written with the rest in scribbly note form.  I’ll have to work on that.  I also need to make a free pattern page.
