Mama Robin update
Can you see the bedraggled state of the mama robin's nest? You may click on the photo for a closer view. I'm not sure if any eggs have hatched yet. Again, I am struck with a human comparison; this time, a mother's house. Before the kids arrive, our homes are fairly organized and tidy. After they come, nothing is in its place. There is a kind of chaos until the last one leaves the 'nest.' And even afterwards, when a child, now adult, comes to visit. My girl was here for a while today, doing some laundry and using the treadmill. When she left, let's see, there was an open cheese package on the cutting board, my desk pen was on a kitchen windowsill, half a glass of water on the counter, and a stray sock on the laundry room floor. And it warms my heart.
