For The Birds

Yes, I realize it's been over a week since I blogged. I had an icky sinus infection which was no fun. I caught it quick and went right on an antibiotic, but it just made me feel so tired!

And instead of spending 4 glorious days of non-stop scrapping over Super Bowl weekend, where I usually can turn out a minumum of 20 scrapbook pages, I managed to get a whopping 6 done. I just didn't feel good! And you know if I don't feel like scrapping, especially on Super Bowl weekend, that I really don't feel good!

So now that I'm feeling much better, even though my sinuses are still bugging me, I'm trying to get back on track...yet again.

I've got lots to do this week and I really want to feel like I accomplished a lot when this week is over.

I did finally get my motivation back and was trucking along so well, cleaning and organizing like a mad woman. Then I got hit by that truck and well, I'm sure you know how that goes.

So I think the motivation has finally returned again, and I'm trying to "do it all" before I run into another road block.

Anyway, the reason for today's title...

When I was cleaning, I came across a bag of birdseed I had bought a long time ago - probably when I was teaching and my class was studying birds. There was quite a bit left, so I decided Ruthi might have fun making some bird feeders.

CJ was a sweetie and went out to find us some pine cones. I sat down with Ruthi and let her coat the pinecones with peanut butter and roll them in the birdseed. She really seemed to enjoy it, except for the birdseed that stuck to her fingers. She wasn't too crazy about that.

The day before we did this, it had been fairly warm and there had been lots of birds in our yard. But on this day, it was FREEZING. So I bundled her up and we went out just long enough to hang the feeders.

Then we waited...inside.

She kept checking the window to see if any birds were enjoying their yummy treat. But we didn't see any. The next day we did spot a couple.

Once it warmed back up a bit, the birds showed up and enjoyed their little feast. Now we need to refill them and put them back out.

Anyway, here are a few pictures of her making the feeders.

Spreading the peanut butter.

She couldn't resist a little taste for herself.

Rolling in the birdseed.

Hanging it in the tree.

For the Birds!


  1. i am still stuck on the 20 scrapbook pages! i so have to get back to that!

    i curbed my potential sinus infection with the Neti Pot which i will be praising tomorrow for WFMW!

  2. Ohhh Ruthi is so cute!

    Glad to see you got your creative juices flowing again. I have been missing you!

    Hope you post your pages soon!

  3. Her sweet hair is just adorable!

    I sympathize with ya on the sinus crap; I finally went to the doctor and got FOUR prescriptions, and no clear diagnosis. It's AllerSinBronWhatever, I guess.

    Glad you're feeling better!

  4. Who can blame her for stealing a taste for herself, huh? What fun!

    Sorry you were feeling so lousy, sweetie! But I must say I'm still impressed...6 layouts for me would be a miracle!
