30 May 2008

Today kicked my butt. I think I've been overdoing it with the exercising, and made myself stay in after work instead of walking. It was so nice out, so I did sit on the porch with my laptop. My porch with no birds. When Emily and her friend came home last night I told them what happened with the bird. Right then, another bird flew/fell out of the nest. We check a while later and there was a lone bird left. This morning the nest was deserted. I spent a good while watering my garden, with no signs of any of the baby birds. I got on my chair and looked at the nest to make sure the mom hadn't come back and laid new eggs. Nope. Empty. I took the nest down and threw it away. It was fascinating seeing the whole process, but I want my porch back. Hey Robin, find someone else's light to build your nest on, OK?

Tomorrow's coffee day...yeah! I can't wait. I actually went to Borders today and had a decaf coffee and read part of my book. It's just not the same without caffeine.

Does that mean they've all flown away? How cool.

You're dead right about the caffeine.

I've never been a coffee drinker (I know, I know...I'm a freak!) but lately I've been having an iced coffee in the morning. I love it! But the calories are too daunting for my upcoming diet. Caffeine is definitely the best part!

I try to avoid caffeine as much as possible. So no coffee for me. None at all. Except on really cold mornings in the wintertime.

Maybe you need to put some decoration up around your porch light to stop them from nesting there in the future.

Man, I would be THRILLED to have a bird nest on my porch. So naturally, they don't. :)

I didn't know you were giving up coffee during the week. Has it helped your sleeping at all?

Don't work too hard tomorrow, and enjoy your borders time!

Thanks for being a bird friendly landlord.

Well, I was wondering if the bird story was going to end badly. Glad to know they made it out okay. Coffee sounds divine. I didn't have any today.

Nature is amazing isn't it?

I am glad you have your porch back.

Enjoy coffee day and the break.

I could stare at nature and watch birds all day long. Its hypnotic. btw- I meant to ask you, do you post to your blog remotely?

I wanted to say, one flew over the cuckoos nest, but that didn't make sense..

I know what you mean with decaf..which is why I load it up with Hazelnut creamer..takes the blah taste away! Keep it up with the exercises that's awesome!! It feels good doesn't it?

You and I are always on the same page it seems in many different ways. :)

TTYL,
