What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?

Reading: Choices by J. E. Laufer and Happy Tales by Diane de Mere

Watching: At this very moment, the words go up on this screen. I don’t generally watch television. Otherwise, after the sun comes up, I am outside watching the birds and squirrels.

Listening to: Petra sneezing. Laynie saying “bless you”. The air conditioner and fans.

Eating: Soft-shell tacos.  It is Taco Tuesday, afterall.

What was the last photo you took with your phone?

The last one taken on my phone was a picture of Vivaldi. He was hopping around the bathroom. Due to potential privacy issues, I can’t post that one. But, this one was just before it.

What is your favorite time of day?

Night is my favorite time of the day. I am a night owl by nature and am my most productive during the night.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful for the opportunity to spend some time watching the wildlife in our yard each day and very happy for the moments I am lucky enough to get a good picture out of the experience.

I am looking forward to seeing our new baby Carolina Wrens! I am not tall enough to see into the lamp where the nest is with my actual eyes. I have to hold the camera up and point it into the lamp, hoping for a clear shot.

The last picture didn’t look like eggs in there anymore, but naked bird colored-somethings that I hope are the baby birds. I haven’t heard any chirping, so I am hoping and praying that they are okay. Their parents keep flying in and out of the nest. They would abandon it if their babies were dead in there, wouldn’t they? So, I hope their activity there means the babies are alive and well and will be chirping away very soon. We hope to get videos of the flying lessons.

Please be sure to hop over and visit our hostess Cee at her blog.

Have a blessed day, y’all!

    That bag of birdseed you planted seems to be producing well.

  2. Suzanne,

    I’m a morning person instead of a night owl. This is always the case. Sometimes I wonder if it has something to do with the time of day one is born. For instance, I was born about a quarter to nine at night. DH seems to be more of a night owl and he was born early in the morning around eightish. I have nothing to base my suspensions on but I’ve wondered about it for years. Do you have any clue? I hope the baby birds are okay, too. I’d think if they were dead the parents would not hang around. Good photos! Have a great week and happy belated Mother’s Day to you, my friend!

    • Cathy,
      That is an interesting thought and definitely worth further research. I get to mess up the statistics here. I was born between 9:55pm and am a night person. David was born at 11:54pm. Our oldest daughter was born just after midnight and she’s a night person. Our youngest son was born at 2:21pm and loves the daytime, adores the sun. Our oldest son and youngest daughter were both born in the morning, but we don’t know their preferences. Maggie is awake ’round the clock thanks to a very busy school schedule. So for those that I know about, those of us born in the day prefer day and those of us born in the night prefer night.
      I am very happy to report that our baby birds were alive and well last time I looked. I got a video and it is on my Instagram feed. They were squawking away yesterday afternoon. 🙂
      I hope that you had a wonderful Mother’s Day, too, my friend!
