I was reading Reinventing Fabulous, no wait, it was Jenny Crusie. I was reading away, sitting on my bed, facing the window and I happened to look up – and there, looking right at me was a blue jay. It occurs to me I should have asked him what he was trying to tell me. But I didn’t.
I love having the feeders outside my window, as I think I’ve said ad infitium. I REALLY like birds. Not in an I-identify-with-them way, but in a they-make-me-smile kind of way. One silly jay ran into the window the other day, he was trying to chase off a second jay and kind of lost sight of where he was in the air. Luckily he didn’t daze himself.
The feeders are very quiet today. It’s cold and grey and windy. I’m under my covers even though it’s only 3:00 in the afternoon. Old farmhouses don’t necessarily heat well. Still there’s lively music in the house and the kids are laughing in the kitchen. They are supposed to be doing homework, but at least they aren’t fighting. I like hearing them laugh.
If you’re lucky I’ll post pictures of my winter desk this week. Or maybe I’ll tell you what happened when I went looking for a car. Stay tuned for the excitement. We’ll get started on that just as soon as I have a nap. And make dinner. Oh and it’s back to work this week. But stay tuned. It’s bound to be fabulous.
