This is what we saw in the field across the road today – this is not my picture because they were too far away and not this clear even with binoculars. I was excited to see the wild turkeys that are always lurking around nearby, but sandhill cranes is a first for me and even better.
We also had a little visitor today for a couple of hours after school, so I got to watch Bambi which I’ve never seen before and will have to be forced at gunpoint to ever watch again. The wandering cat has wandered off. We finished our painting and varnishing. Watched the Blue Jays win and the Pittsburgh Penguins lose.
Did I mention anywhere that we’ve also watched Mama Mia and It’s Complicated and while Ann works away on her little knitted comfort dolls, I’ve been making bizarre things out of yarn just to keep her company. We’ve laughed our way through all the episodes of The Vicar of Dibley and that has reminded us of our bus tour of the UK. When we were somewhere close to where the series was filmed, our tour guide played DVD’s of some of the shows.
I think I’ve watched more tv in the past week than I’ve done in the past year. Early in the morning tomorrow we’re going for pedicures, babysitting all afternoon, then off to see a psychic on Friday and our big “Easter” dinner is Saturday. The time is speeding by! W. informs me he’s all set up now for satelite radio. And that perhaps he’ll still be home when I get back. I have no idea how he’s filling his days of leisure, but, so sad for him, it’s not likely with psychics and spas and sandhill cranes.
