Memorandum Monday: Indigo Buntings and being a Dick
Please excuse the Cheap Trick song. It's been stuck in my head since the alarm clock woke me up playing it in the wee hours of Friday am. It's an awesome song, so not a bad thing. My weekend started off with laundry. Since all the fancy work clothes get washed separately there are those from the whole week, then the towels, and then the regular clothes....and then someone thought the dog needed a bath...so the towels from that....
Anyhow, between all the laundrying, a dinner out, grocerying, and pickinguping, I did manage to fit in some crafting. Wait 'til you see some of the stuff I made...one makes me want cake! CAKE I tell you! I also started a few more angels, so there was some ironing and sewing to get them started. It was at that point I texted my Mom and asked her what settings my sewing machine should be on for one of those very loose stitches you use when you want to pull one side of it to make it all scrunch up...
She called to help and I used some adult language to describe my feelings for my sewing machine. I mean, I love it when the sewing machine works...but not so much when I make big balls of white thread.....Anyhow, I then later texted Mom to thank her for helping and apologize for being a dick. I completely didn't deserve what happened next...we had a visitor. Actually we had two, but I didn't get photos of the female..
I believe it's a male Indigo Bunting chowing down on the dandelion seeds. Isn't he just brilliant? Such a pretty blue! I am hoping since I saw both the female and male that they are working on a nest near by. Then I'd really be lucky!
Well, today is the start of a brand new week, may each day of this week have an unexpected gift!
Our host of Memorandum Monday is Sian over at High in the Sky who has the most awesome pencil sharpener at her disposal...which I'm quite jealous of! Happy happy!
