More Good News

Remember a few weeks ago I told you about the destruction of 8 swan eggs? You can read about that here
The good news is that Manny and Faye, the two Manlius NY swans, have hatched three eggs and the other three are expected to hatch today or tomorrow. Three fluffy gray babies have been spotted sitting on their mother's back. A happy ending after all. Nature will always find its way.

Now that the arduous episode of our doggie, Lexie has reached its happy ending it is time to focus on summery things. I have barely been tending my containers and various little gardens; except for watering. Elphie (camera) and I will be strolling around snapping some shots and giving all the plants some love and attention.

I always have a list of projects around the house. One of these days I am going to check everything off that list. Sometimes it is procrastination that does me in. Too many good books to read, you know, or running to doctor appointments, etc. Organizing time is a bit like herding cats for me.  Some tasks are better left for a rainy day, anyway. Summer is definitely here and rainy days are hard to come by.

There's a bunch of strawberries in the fridge waiting for my attention. I think homemade shortcake is in order.

All for now, see ya soon.

I'm glad the swans had a happy ending to their nesting story!

And your comment on my blog this morning ("no penalty for icing") made me PEE MY PANTS! Good one!

I'm so glad about the swans. Little Phoebe, the hummer, came back and now has two new babes. That, after we thought she was done for the year. A crow came and stole the nest and eggs of her previous clutch, and before that, he took the poor babes as well. So poor Phoebe lost two clutches this year.

Glorious news about the swans!
I learned a long time ago that there is always something that needs to be done. But strawberries are a great way to forget about that list!!!!
