Yup, Still Here....

We've had a little break the last couple of weeks, as I've been at my parent's house. My brother's wanted to throw a party for me, because of the whole 50 thing, and Fourth of July week was when we could get everyone in one place. I had a great time visiting with everyone, especially my nieces and nephew, and then decided to hang around a bit longer to spend a quieter time with Mom and Dad.

Weasley was cared for by his Spare Sister, and then by the Curly One and her Dad, who returned home first. He says that keeping them straightened out was exhausting.

While there was a lot going on people-wise, we also got to enjoy a little nature drama. A pair of robins built a nest about two feet away from my parent's hot tub, right at eye-level. Robins really don't seem to be very smart about where they build their nests, but luckily for these guys, they didn't attract any cats. This was taken on the day of my arrival. There are four little ones in there.

Amazingly, it was not too many days later when they were ready to fly. In the picture below, one baby has already left the nest. That one looking right at the camera flew immediately after this picture was taken. The other two left the nest later that day.

Being with all those kids must have put me in a child-like frame of mind, because I found this Cookie Monster video to be lots of fun.

And of course, there was lots of grown-up talk, too. The subject of Fifty Shades of Gray came up. Haven't read it, but I found an interesting feline version on We Three, Ginger Cat Tales.  I wonder what the bunny version would be. Maybe  Fifty Shades of Disapproval?

Well, that's all I have today, as I struggle to get back into the normal routine. I took my laptop with me, but didn't turn it on, so I'm way behind on blog world. I hope to be catching up with everyone soon. So for now,

Sounds like you had a great time, but I know you are glad to be back home. Weasley is obviously worn out from keeping everyone in line while you were away. Love the Cookie Monster video.

How nice to see the young robins growing up like that!

Heehee, love the snoozing Weasley pics! Flopped bunneh is happy bunneh.

Sounds like you had an awesome visit; hope your brothers weren't too hard on you.

Fifty Shades of Disapproval sounds like a book Mr. Mick would write--he can tell you the exact difference between basic disapproval, the Dread Glare of Sulk and the "check your shoes for poop" look.

Fifty shades of disapproval. Too funny!
Glad you had a wonderful time. Love that floppy fuzzy butt.
