Who knew? I looked up and tried to identify this puzzling shape every time I’ve gone out to fill the front yard bird feeders. Could it be? Another hummingbird nest?
Upon closer examination, it turns out to be an Oriole nest (I’m 99% sure anyway. If you think it’s something else, please let me know!)
I know we have Orioles around the yard every Spring, and they surely do love the grape jelly I offer them. But who knew they were nesting just a few feet away from the house?
So now to the catch-up part…. I have been in a blogging slump, therefore this is my first post of 2011. We have had lots of this:
And more Snow is on the way. And it’s so very cold. Again.
On a sadder note, my Grandma is in the hospital again. By the way, the last prayers were answered and she enjoyed several weeks of fairly good health. Thank you, Dear Blogger Friends! It doesn’t look good this time for her, bless her dear heart. So glad we had a nice visit yesterday. My cousin Susan snapped some “hand” pictures of various family members with Grandma while we were waiting at the hospital. Notice we both had our nails painted? I will cherish this forever.
Mr. W will have back surgery in less than two weeks, so we are preparing for that also. Hopefully he will be able to walk upright again and can be relatively pain-free after surgery.
So, that’s what we’ve been up to. How about all of you? Take care, and hope 2011 has gotten off to a good start for you!
Till next time….
