I woke up early this morning and made an amusement park for birds in our backyard pine in hopes that it would give the Wee Italian something to look at while we tried to work. Homemade bird feeders, seed bells, you name it! A cornucopia of birdly treats for every bird in Conception Bay. Thank their little feathery hearts they came....BUT, little did I know that SHE would be FAR more amused by the birds than any of the cats and would herself be glued to the window, birdwatching for hours at a time. I thought I was so very clever. Foiled. Again.
P.S. Last night we drove St. John's for our Bay-Townie Dinner-Bookclub and it was fabulous! All of us darlings created a fabulous pot-luck that was, perhaps, the best meal since time began! Hooray for everyone!
