Cars and Baby Bird Rescue!

The car had a recall......I got this loaner!
So golden :-)
Brings back memories of my Disco days tee hee

I found 2 baby birds in the basement, they fell from the roof behind the insulation!
I spent an hour getting to them, but I did.

I used gloves and a flashlight like Nancy Drew to solve the mystery of where they were.
And alot of praying!!!
Mask too..........hey its insulation :-(

Gottem, there were 2 babies.......
Chirping like crazy......wheres mom????

I got them back up in the nest which I moved over so they would not fall again.

I saw mom fly back by, all is good and I got my JUKE back too!

It’s time for some healthy summer snacks. Sure you can have fruit and other items but the joy of summer is mixing things up. That’s where Greek Yogurt Covered Craisins® comes in.
A nice burst of sweet with a fun chewy Craisin center, if you kids won’t eat cranberry they will now.

For The Love of Landscaping!

The Barbie House Lanscape Project
I alternated the flowers with the Rush plants, they get about 2' by 2' so it should look very modern even filled in. (the blue flowers are Delphinium, at the end is  a Crape Myrtle in watermelon red)

I love it!

So pretty!

I like the wood with the bricks/stones.
I may add more grey paint to the stones not sure yet.

And the extra parking space next to garage is now open again......thats huge!!!

I know it looks orange but I like it next to the blue.
It is supposed to be natural cedar.

and here is all the rubish that has to be hauled off........

Still need to trim trees but I don't think I will do any more till fall.
T. is tired of shoveling and hauling.
Now its back to posting workouts and fun stuff ;-)
