I Would Not Chase Him if I Were You

This morning the Blue Jays were going nuts.  I looked out in the back yard and noticed Mr Hawk caught himself a nice big juicy lunch.  He finally took off and what did the 2 in the tree do, they chased him.  Really your buddy just became lunch and you are going to chase the bird who did this to your friend?  Not real bright.  I have a lot of Blue Jays this year and now I guess I am down one or maybe 3.

They are SuperStars

Iowa PBS had a viewing of the new Decorah eagles story last night.  Of course they were fund raising and I am sure this was a lot of help for them.  If you would like to view it here it is:

April

I keep seeing the stories about April the giraffe who is supposedly past her due date or they got it wrong.  Anyway last night one of my friends said at 8 my time they feed her.  Giraffes have always been one of my favorite animals so i tuned in.  Big mistake, now i can't decide whether to watch her or my eagles.  The eggs won't hatch for another month so I guess I will switch back and forth and see what is going on in the animal world.  If you want to watch April go here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyQfWCX-bAg.  They feed her at 9pm eastern time.  She is so cute.

Hygge Cal

I finally have week one done. I think i screwed up on the dark blue row which got me off on the rest. I am not ripping it out. I also think because I am using a fingering weight yarn my bobbles don't pop as well. After the yellow row I found that if you carry the dark thread behind instead of catch it in the bobble it makes the bobble pop, so I will remember that if we have more bobbles. I think their fingering weight is heavier than ours like their double crochet is what we call single crochet. I am off to week 2 and see how that goes. This is all about learning and whatever the end project looks like, it will be ok.

Decorah Egg Two of the Season

Mom barely gave us notice this evening. She all of a sudden stood up and starting swaying back and forth and chirping.  Quick everyone come look cos egg 2 is on the way.  Perhaps she knew the snow storm is on the way.

Decorah First Egg of the Season

Mom Decorah laid the first egg of the season last night at 7:30pm nest time.  She kept us going for about 2 hours before it finally came.  If you have never seen this being done, it will make you appreciate nature even more.  Welcome to the newest Decorah family member.
