Welcome to Friday Everybody! It's a good day. :)
Eye Candy Friday this week is about new birth. Remember the baby birds in my plant on the porch last summer? Well, even though the plant is now DEAD, those purple martins are nesting in it again this spring. We had four eggs this year and four babies. So precious. I did show Emeline these precious little babies and she said "Awwwwwwwww... babies." I think they hatched just a few days ago but when I took this picture just a few minutes ago they were moving around and opening their mouth and trying to open their eyes in the bright sun. They grow so fast.
I'm also feeling like a new mother about the spinning I have completed. It's quints! hehe Five little skeins - 105 grams of new unwashed undyed 3-ply yarn - the epitome of yarn purity. This will be beautiful when it's washed but I will probably also be dyeing it right away. I feel like I'm putting a tattoo on a new baby here. I really was choked up when I lined these up last night and gave them a squeeze. I'm very very emotional about my spinning for some reason. I hope this is normal. :)
We have a busy day planned - walking to the post office this morning and then yarn dyeing when the babies go down for a nap. The big kids are visiting with their dad and will be back Sunday so hopefully we'll find some Mommy and Daddy time somewhere this weekend. I'll wrap this up with some pictures that I hoped would be the star of today's post but turned out a little disappointing due to poor light. I employed the newly cleaned window sill to display the flowers the Emeline picked in the yard yesterday evening for her Daddy.
Have a great weekend! :)
