Today was a WILD day! It started with an 8:30 AM appointment in Springfield, OH (about an hour drive from home), then to Dayton for a 10:40 AM, and finally a 2:30 PM appointment in Milan, IN. Today coupled with the end of the month........ Let's just say I'm glad it's over! Tonight, I'm doing NO work. I'm watching American Idol, blogging, and knitting bunnies!
For the Dayton appointment at Miami Valley Hospital, I parked on the top floor of the parking deck. These two birdies were hanging out on the ledge. I think they were hoping I had some breadcrumbs. Sure does look hazy in the photo.
I always park at the top of parking decks - more space and I love the views. The above is a view of downtown Dayton.
Recently, the birds have taken a break from the feeders. They've been too busy courting and nesting to eat. Over the past several days, they've slowly started returning to the feeders. This little cardinal's expression is so cute!! Here's looking at you!
I'm still putting handfuls of peanuts in the shell out for the birds. Mr. Bluejay takes one peanut right after another. He flies in, grabs a peanut, and flies off to a tree and eats it, then returns for another one. The cardinals love the peanuts, too. I was so surprised the other day to see a tiny tufted titmouse stealing my peanuts! One right after another! I've spotted him snatching peanuts several times recently. It's funny to watch - the peanuts are almost as big as this little bird.
On the knitty front --- here's my Oregon Tote. Most of the ones you see are one main color and then an accent color for the trim. Even though I really think the two-color totes are very sharp looking, I just couldn't do it. I'm using all Lamb's Pride yarn (85% wool, 15% mohair) on size 11 needles. I LOVE all these colors and can't wait to see the end result. I'm not sure my washing machine will felt this -- I guess I'll see soon.
They're GREAT! They're colorful. They're cheap. And, I bet you have one just waiting to be emptied.
You can even stuff a small project with needles and directions into the box, too. The box in the photo on the left is full of bunnies and the green box on the right has a stole in progress. The box in the back ------ well, it's in waiting.
Makes me want to go blow my nose so I can hurry up and empty another tissue box!!!!!
