“I realized that If I had to choose, I would rather have birds than airplanes.” – Charles Lindbergh

bird watching

For years, we’ve had a bird feeder just outside our kitchen window. That means a bit of bird-watching accompanies breakfast (and other meals) just about every day. A lovely way to do informal nature study all year ’round.

Every time I come home from the gym, Scout wants me to show her all the exercises I did, and is interested in which muscles are where and how to do exercises the correct way. So one day this week, I took her with me. She got the biggest kick out of it. It’s a small gym, and my head trainer didn’t mind her coming, so I just gave her a little spot to sit in where she could watch us. Before we left, I even let her try the water rower machine.

Other than that, just doing summer around here. The dogs run and play, the flowers bloom, and the kids build LEGOs and color when it’s too hot to play outside (97+ degrees almost all week).

Enjoy your weekend, friends.
