The Robin’s In Her Nest

Leave a comment

“Mrs. Robin” has been diligently sitting in the nest outside the office window. She flutters away now and again, which I can only assume is for food and maybe just exercising the old wings. I’ve posted some pictures of the nest on a separate page – “Robin’s Nest” – for posterity sake. I guess I’m hoping to keep a small record of events. So we’ll see what develops.

Nat and I have been wandering the garden stores for a couple of Maple Trees and think we’ve settled on a couple. One to beautify the front yard and the other for some eventual shade in the back yard. After chopping down that old Poplar Tree we have no shade and it’s desperately needed back there. We’re also keeping a lookout for a patio umbrella and, again, think we found a really good one down the road at a really good price. Not the same colour as the patio furniture, but we can always address that decorating faux pas by buying pillows and placemats that match. Again, shade is desperately needed on the back patio so we can enjoy the same this summer. Me and hot weather are like oil and gas – light a match and we’ll explode!!

Born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada, with 5 sisters and a brother. Now retired, my husband and I travel, play golf and am slowly renovating our new (old) home. After my kidney transplant in 1999, we've learned to enjoy life to the fullest. Nat and I have driven across Canada, taken an Alaskan cruise and drove home via the Northern United States. We've also been to Mexico, the Caribbean, the East Coast of Canada and Cape Breton. We've done the "Snowbird" thing, having lived in Destin, Florida for a couple of months of the year. In 2007 we changed our travel plans in order to move into and renovate our new "old" home, but hope to someday get back on the road again. We also love returning to Scotland (Nat's origin of birth) to visit his family and tour the Highlands and surrounding Isles.
