Why yes, I did disappear from my blog there for a bit. I tend to do that when I get overwhelmed. And a little speechless. In my (other) professional life, I’m a writer (most types!) and in April I started working part time again, but I think that gig is wrapping up soon. More time for bags and blogging! I do so love writing, but it can be consuming.
This weekend it was perfect weather to eat dinner on our screened-in porch. Which is when we noticed a cardinal had built a nest in the tall bushes right up next to the screen. I couldn’t get a good photo through the screen, so I braved the overgrown bushes to get one. It’s difficult to tell, but there are five eggs in the nest. They are blue speckled with brown.
