Waaaaay back in August, Janet was able to scrimp and save and get off work and fly from Germany to Minneapolis for a week. It had been two years since we had seen or hugged Janet. Two. Years. We packed SO MUCH into that week, I can hardly believe it! There was eating, driving and eating, talkign and eating, parties and eating, a wedding and eating, eating Juicy Lucy’s, shopping, eating, German chocolate eating….get the idea?
Every spring baby birds hatch right outside our kitchen window. Taking pictures through the window don’t always work (1) so I tried getting a ladder outside for picture taking, but only got a 2-foot ladder. As I was standing on the top of the ladder on my tip toes, straining my arms up to get pictures (2), all the babies flew away (3).
