I heard a familiar song outside my kitchen window, and guess who I found singing to me?(Please excuse quality of photos. They are taken through the window).
Looks like the orange cardinal I named, Zeus has returned. Although, he might really be red. His color could be an effect from the glare of the sun on his breast.
He brought a special someone along with him this year, but she’s way more elusive than him. He sits still and sings while she flutters from branch to branch chirping. Thus, the reason for the blur of her picture.Could it be true that tulip and crocus leaves are peeking through the soil? We still have patches of snow on the ground, but also patches of green grass showing. I was shocked to see those leaves poking out. Any gardeners out there know if this is normal?
Switching gears, here’s an update for anyone who’s wondering about my covid situation. All my symptoms are gone except for one. I find my energy runs out quicker these days. It really knocked the wind out of me, literally. I’ve been trying to build up some more stamina by doing short, easy walks on the treadmill. Simply doing my usual routine of walking or cleaning the house can wipe me out for the rest of the day.
We’re going to have a lot going on in our home in the coming weeks. The updating of our kitchen should begin in about 3 weeks. I’m not looking forward to the work, but I am definitely looking forward to when it’s finished. Crossing fingers it all goes smoothly.
I hope this blog post finds everyone well and getting back to regular life again.
Have you ever updated anything in your home? How did it go?
