Why am I saying “chirp?”

May 9, 2017

The robin family that has been nesting over our back door down spout has successfully hatched three or four chicks.  This happened when we were out of town last week, so they had quiet family time while we were away.

Last year they tried twice to raise a family, but raccoons got the eggs both times.

If you look closely, you can see the nest looks kind of like a duplex because the robins built a brand new nest right on top of last year’s.

The chicks are getting pretty big.  I’ll bet they will fledge soon.  Nice.

Isn’t this just what your furniture needs?

And they come in so many designs.  Or you can make them yourself.

 

I understand they can be purchased here.  Or you can down load a knitting pattern here.

Thanks to Katie for the reference!

Where am I living this time?

April 27, 2017

 

Stained glass artist and jeweler Neile Cooper had a vision for a sanctuary: a small cabin behind her home in Mohawk, New Jersey that would feature her glass designs on every available surface. The result is Glass Cabin, a structure built almost entirely from repurposed window frames and lumber that features dozens of panels of her stained glass work, depicting flowers, birds, butterflies, mushrooms and other scenes from nature. Cooper explores many of these same motifs in her popular jewelry designs. You can see more photos of Glass Cabin on Instagram.

What am I celebrating on tattoo Tuesday?

Don’t get your knickers in a twist –

Today is National DNA Day

On April 25 we commemorate the day in 1953 when James Watson, Francis Crick, Maurice Wilkins, Rosalind Franklin and colleagues published papers in the journal Nature on the structure of DNA. Furthermore, on that day in 2003 it was declared that the Human Genome Project was very close to complete, and “the remaining tiny gaps [we]re considered too costly to fill.” – Wikipedia
