hey y’all!

hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving! we were very blessed: all three of ben’s sons were here, including mike and his wife burgandi and their little one, harrison. he’s the first grandbaby! tara and matt (my two youngest blessings) were here as well as ben and me. an almost full nest of baby birds (no matter how old they get, they’re still our babies)!

ben and i have fallen completely and madly in love with grandbaby harry. we seriously considered hiding him from his mommy and daddy so they might leave him behind. but in the end, we thought better of it. would’ve been a tad extreme, don’t you think?

on friday, burgandi and i went shopping in salado and left grandpa and daddy behind to babysit harry. had lunch at a quaint little tea room (very girly!) and found great deals on some very sweet things … but most of all, it was some serious “girl time” with my daughter in law.

the house is mighty quiet today … just matt and me. feeling kinda blue and missing baby harry. i’ve written it before, but i can’t help but wonder what a mama bird feels, if anything, when all her birds fly out of the nest. the older i get, the more sentimental (and sometimes downright depressed) i get during the holidays. especially when i don’t see all of my children … or if i get to see them and then they leave again (as they should!). sigh.

okay. enough wallowing! am including pics of the family, especially the grandbaby … and a few from salado. i found two VERY sweet little birds who are now at home in my collection (pics of that too). what IS it with me and birds, anyhow?! it’s a sickness i’m afraid. they are just toooo sweet.

enjoy. and hang in there. this time next month, it’ll all be over … for another year. whew!

love and hugs,
terry lee

Hey Y’all!

There’s a cracked little bird egg on my front walk today. I assume it fell out of its nest in the tree.

I know life goes on, but as I’m sitting here, listening to the birds chirp outside my front window, I can’t help but wonder about the mama bird. Is she missing her lost egg/baby?

Birds probably don’t have the capacity for emotions or deep thoughts, but I’d like to believe that because she’s a mama, she must feel some sense of loss.

Too romantic an idea? Well, maybe Mama Bird doesn’t even realize one of her eggs fell out (she does have a bird-brain after all) … or worse, maybe the old bird thought 3 eggs were too much to handle and nudged one over the nest’s edge.

So much for personification of the bird … sometimes my mind just goes off on these tangents. I guess it’s a good thing we’re not mama birds. I’d have trouble feeding my babies already-chewed-up worms! But if I were a bird, I’m certain I’d be grieving (loudly, over all the other birds) my one lost egg.

Anyway … here are some more random pics from around my home.
