It's January and I think I just got my first sunburn of the year. I couldn't WAIT to get out there and prune some shrubs, dig some weeds, and generally play in the dirt. :)
When it's nice like this I love to open windows and allow fresh air into the house. I also open our back door, as we have a screened in porch and the open door really allows for some good breezes to come through.
It also allows critters to come through.
A little Carolina wren thought my house looked like a GREAT place to build a nest, so he flew right on in! And then flew into my bed room!
I grabbed the kids 'fishing net' they use at the beach for minnows and raced into the room. I shut all the closet doors, and poised myself for attack. As I stood there, that little bird flew right up and landed on the edge of my net. And sat there. I was perplexed for a moment...I had him right where I wanted him,...yet, he was impossible to catch. I was outsmarted by a bird.
Eventually I did net him and out the door he went. I wonder what he's telling all his little birdie friends right now.....
