For the Birds

I lost my calendar yesterday at the grocery store.
Has anyone seen it?
I wonder what I am doing today!
That was the bad part of the day.
Now, for the good part of the day.
As I was leaving the grocery store, I heard this
wonderful chatter of chirping.
I looked up in the rafters and saw something precious.
Those swallows are great nest builders out of mud.

Oh my gosh.

So sweet.

We are fortunate in California to have
Swallows return each year to
San Juan Capistrano in SO CA.

HAVE A SWEET DAY.

Hope you find your calendar. Swallows are such beautiful birds and their mud nests are very interesting. I love coming across bird nests unexpectedly. Happy fourth, my friend!

I just sealed up all of my ATCs and will pop them in the mail tomorrow along with handmade 'bird' themed greeting cards :) Fun fun!

Hugs and kisses to Rocky ...
