Life Lately

The baby birds have hatched!

June 24

July 1
They're already outgrowing the nest! 

 We have a cherry tree in the backyard and it's definitely harvest time! I've tried for years to keep the birds and squirrels out of it by using foil strips and CDs but nothing worked. This year we put a large net over it and that did the trick! Now there are SO many cherries, we're out there every day crawling under the net and plucking them off the branches. That little tree is a lot of work but the cherries are SO good!

 Beth and I made cookies the other day. We had every intention of sending some to Diana but we only made one batch and then gave some to Sharaya and Allie and we ate the rest! Sorry Diana! We bought more chocolate chips today and we'll try again! 😋

Seattle has had weeks of gray skies and drizzle. We are so ready for warm temps and sunshine and as anyone who lives in Seattle knows, summer officially starts on July 5!

Happy Independence Day!

Isn't it amazing how fast the birds grow? I was convinced it was another set of birds when they were all crammed in there looking like ADULTS in just a short time after they were hatched.

Those baby birds are cute!
And I love baking chocolate chip cookies!
Wondering if you two snuck a couple spoonfuls of the dough??? : )

What adorable little birds! I think it would be heaven to have that cherry tree in my yard. A fun post of this and that. Enjoy your summer!

Hi Cindy!

Ahhh, nothing cuter than a baby...bird or otherwise!

I love cherries! Nets have saves our garden many times, from pesky little critters. My daughter called me last night and told me she just chased 3 pesky raccoons out of her garden - I don't think nets work on them!

Yum, chocolate chip cookies are my favorite, they look delish!

Have a wonderful 4th of July!

Hugs and Love,
