I found a baby blue jay today. Callie had just found it too and it was unharmed so I took it away from her. The little fella is too small to make it on his own and I couldn't find the nest. Pretty tame for a wild bird. I set it on the other side of our fence in the shade and put the wild cats in the house to give it a chance to escape. It was chirpin so maybe it's ma will find it. I am so not impressed with mother birds.
It was totally relaxed in my hands, it's little heart wasn't beating fast or anything.
Actually it was fun to hold it and pet it's little head. I don't have any use for blue jays, but it's a baby.
We also had some little people over to visit. Talk about a pick me up.And they brought a cake. A passion fruit cake with coconut, warm from the oven and served with coffee and love.
Such a sweet mama and friend.
She's two and adorable. She has the thickest head of hair. She will be fluent in two languages her mom is very smart.
My toys do come in handy. Kids think it's fun to come over here. This is the baby a bunch of chubby baby sugar and yeah I munched on him. Perfectly delicious little ham hocks on this boy.
It's been awhile since I gave something away.
I just finished a book.
It's a bit airy fairy for me. Very big on words. Some sentences were awesome.
It just isn't my cup of tea. I don't like dark sad tales. I don't like so many words that I feel confused. I kept hoping someone with some common sense would help the two young girls.
I'm too practical. ( This from a woman who was playing with little ceramic cows just yesterday)
Is it bad to give away a book you didn't really like?
It won an award and Brin from "My Messy Thrilling Life "likes it.
But I didn't like it. However the New York Times Book Review says," So precise, so distilled, so beautiful that one doesn't want to miss any pleasure it might yield."
Doris Lessing likes it. Maybe you will like it.
The book is;
Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson.
Just say in your comment that you want a chance at it. After it's been so highly recommended and Pa will pull names out of a hat. Will give this one till Saturday.
Incidentally I was thinking about what Coffee Bean suggested regarding modeling the boots with a hat and nekkid and someone beat me to that. Check out http://themilkmanswife.blogspot.com
