Settling in for winter – Favorite Thing Saturday #14
During winter cleanup or after a storm we often find bird nests in the gardens. This time it was a very tiny lacy nest that I found, I imagine from hummingbirds. It makes me think of all the work, and yes, anxiety, that goes into making a home, of protecting and raising the offspring. This is true for us humans as well as the birds, just a longer process. At least we don’t need to build a whole new home each year!
Sometimes the outdoor critters think they would like to be indoors too:
Speaking of domesticity, I have been busy making “quick” knits for gifts and thought I’d share a few.
We don’t yet know our Christmas plans and the uncertainty is a bit agitating. Nesting at home, quietly and simply, would be lovely!
Cold with flurries now as I type. You’d think it was winter!
