A Week in Review

Sorry about the silence, my loyal readers. Life has been busy here in Podunk, RI, as it usually is for us in the summer. Work was crazy last week, we went sailing on Wednesday night and had a wonderful time, then over the weekend we went to Vermont to see our nephew Alex, who turned three years old on Friday.

Until I can get my head together to write a more meaningful post, I'll have to entertain you with some pictures.

Here's a nest of birds under our deck. I can see the nest when I walk out from the basement under the deck. On Thursday night I was in the basement doing laundry. When I pulled the drying rack in through the basement door, one of these baby birds flew into the basement. It sat on the frame of the window and chirped until I caught it with a dish towel and brought it outside to free it. It just barely flew onto the railing of the deck and chirped. A second later another chirp came from the tree, and my little friend flew toward the chirp and perched itself on a branch and chirped again to get a closer reading on the other baby bird in the tree.

This is Griffen jumping into the water near our mooring. I took this on Wednesday night before we went sailing.
This is Alex on his brand new bike. He's very serious as he rides it.

Uncle Todd and Alex walk up to the end of the driveway, where they cross the street so Alex can ride his new bike in the church parking lot. This is quite possibly my new favorite picture.
This is what happens when I swim with an overjealous Labrador.
