Baby birds are ugly and cute all at the same time.

I have baby birds on my front porch and I think they are adorable. They are actually on the railing, so we can get really good looks at them. I don't think I've ever seen baby birds so close. Walker is loving checking on them every day and the day they hatched I asked my neighbor to come over with his fancy lens and take some pics of them. If you shake the vine around their nest a little bit, they all pop up with their mouths wide open, waiting for food. Mama bird sits on a branch not too far away and makes as much noise as she can until we leave, but I think she's starting to warm up to us and realize we are not going to hurt. I can't wait to see them when they start trying to fly.

  2. We have baby birds too - in our condo's back porch roof the grated layer between our porch and the one on top of us. I can't see them, but hear them each morning from our bedroom!

  3. We had a nest above our light on our back porch last year. My husband was outside grilling and the mama bird kept swooping in and trying to attack him!! Plus, birds happen to be my biggest fear...so it was a rough summer :)

  4. That is an incredible picture! We have a mother bird on our window sill right now but I doubt I could get a picture like that one!

  6. Super cool pic, Wendy! Just a thought, and not a very happy one, but look out for snakes! I interrupted a black snake that was climbing up the side of my parent's house trying to get to some baby birds. I was amazed that it could climb like that...and absolutely horrified. I imagine the porch would be a cake walk. I hope they remain undiscovered.

  7. Incredible picture...I can just "hear" those baby chirps when I look at it...we are hearing a lot of birds down here in south Georgia (amazed that they aren't coughing on the pollen...)

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
