We found a baby magpie sitting out by the pool today. He can't fly and one of his eyes is closed. It was getting cold and windy out - so we brought him inside. I think that probably breaks all "being touched by humans and then being ignored by your bird mother" rules but there seemed to be little else to do. I thought he may be injured. We need to consult with Marit to find out what to do with him. In the meantime, he's enjoying his nest of towels on the kitchen counter.
The mural on the craft room wall is progressing... watch for a major reveal next week! Here's a sneak peek, taken with my new camera.
Unpacking after a long time is like going shopping. You forget about all of the treasures that have been hidden away, and when you open them up again, it's just like Christmas. My old toe shoes are filled with friends and hanging in the craft room.
