these days

These days I am smelling the lilacs I cut from our yard and thinking of the lilac bush outside my bedroom window growing up. My smell of Spring.

These days I am exploring the world of birds at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and with field guides. I identified a mockingbird that visited our front fence.

These days I am enjoying every moment of sun in a mostly rainy week and every moment with our friends who are moving in a couple of months.

These days I am singing "Little bird, little bird, fly through my window. Little bird, little bird, fly through my window. Buy Molasses Candy." You can hear Pete Seeger's version here.

These days I am in thinking that I need to start recording all of the hilarious things and very interesting questions the kids say everyday like this mom and this mom.
