Random Thoughts

I started this post a week ago and never did finish it in a timely fashion....

1) I rescued a fox sparrrow. It bashed into our window and was lying on its back, panting. I picked it up and put it in the shade on the stone ledge along the house where the dog couldn't get at it. After about a half hour, the poor thing recovered well enough to fly off. We were very happy.

2) More FOSs: brown thrashers, chipping sparrows

3) ARGH! Not another instance of misusing "light-year" as a unit of time; it is a unit of distance.

4) We finished the greenhouse...finally!! It only took us 1.5 years (note sarcasm). We were so relieved to finally pop the doors in. I keep forgetting to take a photo though...
