Merry

Can I tell you how good this long weekend was? It would take a long time to list all the goodness that the weekend brought but I'll try to hit at least some of the high points...

--Fancy-pants dinner with hubby. The first real "date" we've had in a year. Yeah, I know...crazy, eh? I'll be happy when he's done with school and we have a real life together again.

--Hanging out with Mama. I'm am so lucky to have a friend like her.

--Log flume ride at the park, followed by snow cones. 'Nuff said.

--Bird watching in the backyard

--Taking fifty photos and having...mmmm...maybe 6 come out nicely. At least I'm learning about this damn camera (finally).

--Merry-go-rounds, mini-trains, sitting on burlap sacks while going down the Super Slide

--BBQ in the backyard with lots of potato salad and smores

I wished I could have done some more knitting as well as work on my postcards for the swap. But hey, I'm taking a few days off next week to continue this lovely, lovely vacation feeling. There will be time for that goodness then.

And as for schoolwork? Schoolwork? Schmoolwork. Ummm, just not feeling it. Think I'm going to try to finish up the next lesson the best I can and then take a mini-break before the test. I was going to try to wait until after I took the exam (as that makes much more sense), but my momentum has gone with the gentle breezes and sunny skies.

Your weekend sounds like it was perfect in every way! Summertime is the best time, isn't it?

no interesting birds to report?

Well, I found that my black throated sparrow was just a house sparrow (the country variety, not the urban one). Other than that I saw barn swallows (one of my faves), mountain scrub jay, common grackle, california quail and mourning dove.

Summertime...well, late spring is awesome.
