More Baby Birdies

After my birds hatched and flew away I was experiencing some empty nest syndrome feelings. However, a different bird kept flying to the nest. One day I checked and there were tree eggs. I was so excited. When Joe came over the next day I had him look at my three new eggs, he came back and said there were four. I checked again the next day and five eggs were there!

Unfortunately, something attacked the nest in the night. My mom called to tell me that three were missing and two more were dead in the nest. She took care of the last two, rather than leaving them for whatever got the other three. Poor little babies. And that poor mother. I wonder if finches feel sorrow.

Here are the pictures I had before they were attacked. They were so cute.

My Baby Birdies

When we finally decided to take down one of Christmas wreaths that was still up in March we found that a bird had started to build a nest so we left it up.

Now they’re gone and I’m experiencing empty nest syndrome.

Breakfast

There are some people out there that don’t eat breakfast and I just don’t get it. Breakfast food is some of the most delicious food. And it’s the meal that you can eat any time of the day. Who eats a sandwich for breakfast? But pancakes can also be dinner.

For the most part I just eat cereal for breakfast. I love Cheerios, but only the plain kind. Kix and Special K are pretty good too. And who doesn’t likeĀ CinnamonĀ Toast Crunch? Sometimes we have dried cherries and those join the plain cereal in my bowl.

Sometimes when I stay at Joe’s house and we don’t have anything to do in the morning he makes bacon and eggs. He is the best egg maker that I know. They’re always delicious. It hasn’t happened in a while, but sometimes at my house my mom will make pancakes for breakfast. And she makes them from scratch, not a mix. We did have pancakes and bacon for dinner not too long ago. However it really doesn’t happen much anymore because Lily only ever eats a few, I don’t eat them leftover and mom can’t eat them at all because of her gluten allergy. That makes me sad too because breakfast is my favorite.
