Check out all the birds that were in our front yard last week. This swarm passes through every now and then. They all come and go together -- like junior high school girls huddling together at the mall.
I tried to turn the "movie" feature on the camera to catch them all flying away, but I was too slow. It's like a scene from a scary movie. But it's not really scary... because we know these birds have teeny tiny brains.
On the agenda today:
Cinnamon rolls from a can for breakfast
More soccer games
"boo'ing" three neighbors (We received a surprise pumpkin bucket full of goodies on our doorstep last night. We'd been "boo'ed" by a mystery neighbor and now we must continue the mystery by "boo'ing" three more.)
A trip to our favorite bookstore ("the one with the train table and the maze books," according to Benjamin)
Making sure the guest room is all set for Grma Kathy's visit tomorrow!
Anonymous asked what the NPR pledge drive is. NPR is National Public Radio, a news and entertainment station funded predominately by donations from viewers. Several times a year they spend about 10 days breaking into the regular programing to plead for money. I am happy to donate money once a year and I understand why they need to do it, but.... It. Is. So. Annoying.
Mel said she is having trouble with blogger cutting off the bottom of pictures too. Anyone know what's up with that? The second bird picture is cut off again today.
Karoda says she can't watch LOST because it makes her feel to anxious and wonders if The Nine has the same feeling. I have been watching The Nine and it's ok... but I don't feel myself just dying to know what's going to happen to the characters the next week. (I've laid off all crime dramas because they are too real-life for me and cause me to toss and turn at night.) Studio 60 is the best new drama of the season, hands down. Oh my goodness, who didn't have goosebumps while listening to Sting in the closing scene last week?
