I Love a Project, On a Lighter Note, Smile!

Roosting boxes are larger than regular nesting boxes to accommodate a lot of birds.

The dowels serve as perches for all the bluebirds that will take shelter inside during the winter. I'll post a photo when it's finished.
1. A wide variety of birds live around our property and we enjoy watching them throughout the seasons. So, gaining inspiration from the "Birdhouses for Sale" sign on the highway, Steve is building a nesting box for the Bluebirds. Tonight I "helped" him.
1a. We plan to build a variety of boxes and houses to attract the Screech Owls and Martins and perhaps some others.
2. Ending the day with two episodes of The IT Crowd lightens my mood considerably. (I think I've had it with all the dramas...the daily news is about all the bad news I can process every day without adding recreational drama to my brain.)

3. The students are all spiffy and shiny for school pictures today. What a job the two photographers have. They have to coax four hundred bouncy little people to sit still and smile.


  1. What a neat project! I hope we'll hear a lot about the new residents.

  2. thanks for the link, i had a good laugh and am watching a few episodes now too~
