Dinner is getting colder and later: hasty weekend update

golden-crowned kinglet at the park
A busy weekend it has been and I've just discovered how very easy it is to delete and permanently lose an entire blogger post. You'd think someplace there'd be a draft but, alas, I haven't found such a thing. The only consolation is that it was a pretty lousy post anyway, mostly just noting that it has been a lovely weekend and Friday afternoon feels a very long time ago, in a good way. We went to see the heron rookery and, eventually, to the T105 (or whatever) park across from Kellogg Island yesterday.

There we saw Caspian terns (!!! surely it is early for them) and, most excitingly, a robin on her nest.

incidental loveliness
Also, near the herons, a pileated woodpecker and a snake. And by the park, wild bunnies and piles and piles of scrap metal. And, on the way home, just incidental loveliness.

Today was more home-oriented; Scott put in a few screens and did some spackling while I planted pole beans and lettuce and fussed in the yard. Which, really, this time of year is very lovely.


  1. You got a photo of a kinglet!! Boy howdy that's keen. They always move too fast for me.

    Blogger saves drafts. I know where they are, but I'm not tellin'.

    Birds and gardens and incidental loveliness are all one truly needs for a splendid weekend.

    1. Best you keep the location of the drafts from me; I took it as divine intervention when the post went missing. I was very pleased about the golden-crowned kinglet; I've taken a lot of perfectly focused spots where the kinglet was a second earlier. I'm *most* excited about the robin on her nest though we also saw eagles and ospreys driven off by the Caspian terns.
