A hawk swooped in yesterday afternoon. Aren't you pleased when you see bigger birds? We had a huge crow that hung around eating all the suet for a few days, but I wasn't as excited about him. He was cute, though.
We had a happy fourth of July, lots of good food and good company. After the sweet ones left, I took a nap. Now I am cleaning, getting ready for our fun Australian house guests.
This hustle and bustle inspired me to hang a few things on the kitchen wall. Yay!
Cleaning is not for the faint of heart, is it? I used to clean houses before I turned into a teacher (via going back to college with a lot of young people). I would work so fast and so hard for four hours, pack up my supplies, and close the door and lock it (or not if they were home). It was exhausting. I think the hardest part of cleaning is tugging the vacuum cleaner around. Actually, I have a bit more vacuum cleaner tugging to do now and then some mopping and straightening and then I will stop and enjoy the guests.
I hope you have a smooth week, full of little blurbs of encouragement and deep breaths.
Thank you for stopping by. xoxoxo
