Yesterday it was almost 70 degrees and today it's 44--LOL! Spring in the North Country.
The birds were happily bathing in the water dish yesterday.
The two mourning doves seem to love a good bath. Even just sat in the water for a while.
This big box came late on Friday but I waited to open it till McFamily arrived yesterday.
My mom had called and asked me if I wanted her serger sewing machine. Whoohoo!! She sent it all the way up from Florida.
Hope you can see it there with all the piles on the black table in the studio.
She didn't have the instruction booklet and I have no experience with sergers (also called overlock machines) so will be doing searches online for information. Be so cool if I can figure out how to use this!! Leah is excited, too. They can enclose and cut off the excess fabric in a seam all at the same time--like most clothes are done at factories. Will be an interesting challenge, eh?
Ian came with his new "First Bike" that has no pedals. Teaching him balance when he sits on it. He does really well.
We took a trip down the walking path to the big cottonwood tree to give it a hug. (I love the lime green helmet!) Ian gave the tree a hug and told me the tree said "thank you". Gramma had to turn off the video so she could give the tree a hug, too. Ian decided that we also needed to give the tree a kiss. So we did. Perfect for Earth Day, eh?
Ian was very interested in seeing his shadow. He got to bring home a piece of the bark that had fallen off the tree and a bit of small branch. Tokens of tree hugging.
I hope everybody had a happy Earth Day! :) :)
