Colin's Piece

Finished up Colin's piece of art. I'll be shipping her out tomorrow.

Here's a close-up...

It's been between 70 and 80 degrees here lately in beautiful Southern California. Everything is in bloom and lookin' mighty pretty. We have our finch socks up & the boys and I have been spending a lot of time in the back yard planting new things and birdwatching (and for Dylan, playing in the mud, finding worms and slugs, seeing what happens when you cut them in half with a shovel...) Anyway, I wanted to put up some birdhouses. I ended up not seeing anything I liked at the garden center or on Ebay. So I made this one myself. I wanted something rustic. It only took a little over an hour to build. I'm going to make a few more of them to hang.

I ended up with a terrible ear/sinus infection combo this weekend. Major pain. Friday night Michael thought he was going to have to take me to the E.R., but he managed to find a Vicadin in the house, so I happily took it. Luckily I also had some antibiotics on tap, so I started taking those as well. I have to be in shape for Disneyland on Wednesday Dammit!
Here's a sad little picture of Bodie that was taken when he was in the throws of the flu. It's so sweet, he looks like one of those little kids they put on TV to drum up donations.

Alright, Dylan, Michael and I have a date with ol' Mickey Mouse on Wednesday. I love that place so much. It's really cool to be able to take our own kids there finally. I'll post pictures later in the week.
