I am often in awe of Mother Nature. Today I saw a bird pick out a piece of straw and fly back to her tree with it. She came back a few minutes later and found another piece. She seemed to be building a nest. I watched her repeat this work for about ten minutes. Then I had to go back inside. I was at Winthrop at the time, and I knew they would be looking for me. I would have preferred to stay there sitting quietly watching the bird make her trips back and forth. She knew exactly which pieces she wanted and passed up the ones that weren't suitable.

Smile

Last thing that made me smile was visiting my elderly mother (now 94) in her nursery home and hearing her say "they are all old people here"!

Just saw a tiny Monarch caterpillar on my milkweed! I haven't seen Monarchs for several years, saw two this year, and was hoping they'd like it here.

I got to hold the our friend's newly adopted baby! He's 2 weeks old, but was born 4 weeks premature (does that make him negative 2 weeks,LOL). He's such a little peanut, but is just as healthy as can be. The new parents while sleepy are still beaming with pride!

Actually, in development, he is minus 2 weeks. The pediatrician will consider him as such until he is "at term" and then the negative will turn into a plus. If he's lucky, he can have two birthdays every year. The pediatrician and his staff are the only one's with this particular affliction.

I'm glad you're able to smile in the ER, Laurie. I hope you get some answers soon. Take care.
