Whew it was rainy yesterday - torrents came down on my way home. But, it eventually stopped, Colin came over and grilled hamburgers for us and then suggested a walk. He wanted to go on the River Trail in Valley Forge Park, so we headed over there. The trail was very wet and muddy and then this happened:
Yup - I ended up slipping and sitting down...hard. It was gross. Luckily Colin had some cardboard in his car and I was able to sit on that and keep the seat of his car clean. My phone was covered in mud and now I can't seem to charge it, so I guess I'll be stopping at the Verizon store this afternoon. My little finger is swollen and bruised, but other than that I'm fine. I showered as soon as we got home and then the clothes went in the washer. All the mud came out😊
Meanwhile, here we are 39 years ago:
(Oh that hat!!). No special plans to celebrate our anniversary...just more of the same wedded bliss - lol. Really, it's been great and here's to many more years together.
This year we have two pairs of nesting wrens! The first is in a bird house hanging on a branch of our apple tree:
And the second is in a gourd hanging on our patio:
Look at all those little twigs sticking out! And now there is more than one hole in the gourd (they have a front and a back door!!).
Wrens have nested in both places in prior years much to Tyg's enjoyment. Neither one is a particularly safe place - Tyg climbs the apple tree all the time and just under the gourd is a large trashcan for yard waste - Tyg often jumps onto that and from there it is an easy reach to the gourd. I'm hoping that both families survive.
I'm looking forward to the weekend. We have plans to meet Colin & Mailing for breakfast tomorrow (within walking distance from their home) and then walk over to the Farmers' Market. We have some errands to run after that and Colin is going to grill some lunch for us. It will be nice to hang with them a bit. And Sunday Dee and I are going to meet up! Finally!! We haven't gotten together in about a month, so it will be good to catch up (and perhaps have a little retail therapy??).
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend - enjoy!!
