I see something somewhat round, that is probably the head.

That's it, Taxy.
For as small a nest as it seems, it must be deep. My guess is she's sitting on eggs already.

That's a nice shot, pac. I've never seen a hawk nesting before, maybe she is a first time mom. Thanks for sharing. Your camera takes nice pics from so far away!

I'm nursing a cold and have been layin' low all day, again. I did manage to get some file folders cleaned up today. I just grabbed a bunch at a time from the desk drawers in the den, brought them out to the living room, and sorted through them while I watched TV.

Working my way to going to bed, have laundry to do tomorrow. I'll be back to working on Mondays again until we get a replacement in the Long term Care MDS office...the new hire was a crazy lunatic and was shown the door. So, I'm the back-up and the only one wanting the extra hours right now.

Just got home. Catered a prom tonight...230. All went well. Full day, glad to get it behind us. Short staffed at work. Our main gal that was working for us..found out she was very dishonest. She was taking more than just her tips home at the end of the day. Makes for some longer days & nights for awhile.

That stinks, SB!!! I sure know what that is like, not being able to balance the books because of employees. I hope you can find a good employee.

Sitting on our balcony overlooking the ocean and watching the band downstairs outside playing Kiss, Joan Jett, the Stones, they're again surprisingly good for being non-English speakers! Some creative use of lyrics, but instrumentally, they're tight.

DH is feeling under the weather and is inside trying to sleep, so I'm rocking out by myself.

That's a shame SB. I hate to hear things like that. Instead of being appreciative of having a job, people have to get greedy and think they deserve more. Someone else would have been happy to have that job. Hopefully you will find an honest replacement. You don't want me....I would be eating up the profits.

SB, I am so sorry you had to go through this. I have had a lot of staff through the years and have been very lucky. I am sending big hugs your way.
