1. We have a bluebird couple living in our bluebird house, in spite of the Willie Factor. The male bluebird sees his reflection in the kitchen window and spends the entire day attacking the screen. So far he hasn't busted the screen, but it is now covered in bird poop. I did manage to snap a picture of him through the window, preparing to launch into it. There are 7 little blue eggs in the bluebird house. I hope they will be okay with Willie around.
3. We've had some evenings lately where it's been balmy and cool with a strong breeze. It feels just like the beach. This makes me happy - I love the ocean. If I close my eyes, I can pretend I am there - only missing the delicious sea salt smell and the sound of the waves.
4. In answer to last week's bouncy house dilemma, I let them go through, but I went crazy with the disinfecting wipes before we drove home.
5. If someone randomly handed you $500 and told you to go buy something you'd been wanting for a really long time, what would you buy? I'd get a generator. Not very exciting, but practical no doubt. I still remember with horror the 8 days we had no power last summer when it was 100* outside. Hoping we don't ever repeat that!
