When we first met him, he was a peeping tom. Peeking and peeping at our bathroom window. Perhaps he saw his reflection and thought it was a competitor. He visited the window repeatedly. You could almost hear him saying, "You want a piece of me? Bring it!"
A leisurely stroll around our yard revealed Mama sitting on a nest carefully concealed in a hydrangea bush. She patiently and quietly sat on the nest. We never got to see any babies though.

Sometime last year I also drafted a pattern that fits me perfectly. Wish I could remember where I got the instructions for this. I used this quick and easy pattern to make the skirt. It took less than two hours. Two hours and one year that is.
I don't' know why I procrastinate on projects like this. No doubt, some deep psychological problem.
Use it up projects will be on the back burner for the next few weeks. We are having a open house for area realtors on Wednesday. In the spirit of using it up, I'm fixing a light lunch using mostly things we have on hand.
Zucchini/apple muffins (our apples are ripe on our tree - in June! That never happened in the Northwoods!)
Ham/cream cheese wraps
Fresh fruit (Peaches? Grapes? Melon?)
A few days after our open house, my sis and niece arrive for several days. And my brother's family will come down to spend time with us all as well. Don't tell them that there will be shredded zucchini in the spaghetti sauce.
Then a few days after they all leave, my aunt and uncle arrive. I'll probably make zucchini fritters or quiche.
So no 'use it up' projects until mid-July. Unless you count using up zucchini.
(Might have to try this recipe. Supposedly it tastes like pineapple!)
