For the Birds

Thomas came running down the stairs this morning – and I really hate when they do that, since we don’t have a hand rail – all excited. “There are baby birds in the apple tree right outside my window!” he squealed. And so there were! Two little robins, looking about like they’re ready to fly, napping peacefully in their nest while mama looked on from a nearby branch. Well, they were napping peacefully until I stuck the upper half of my body and a long lens out the window and into their little hideaway.

In other news, I’m typing this on a real keyboard! I already have an external hard drive, and now a mouse and keyboard… This thing is getting to be just a glorified monitor. 🙂
