I have some new neighbors!
Aren't they cute? The babies are so tiny, I almost missed them as they plodded through the brush to the water, following their mom for a swimming lesson and a spot of dinner!
These are the first of many, I think. There have been a lot of ducks this spring.
And many geese, too. Mother Goose is still sitting but it won't be long before her golden goslings will be out and about!
I have more from the ditch but first, a pressing question. My microwave died. One night it worked, the next morning it didn't. I thought it might be a breaker issue but that wasn't the case. It's just dead.
It owes me nothing. A friend gave it to me in 1982 or 1983. It was her dad's. So this baby was close to 40, older than either Greg or Kevin and from a time when I was far more petite. It's time for a new model.
I ventured to the store yesterday and the choices overwhelmed me. Many of the models have an air fryer. So, my questions are -- do you have an air fryer? What do you do with it? Is it attached to your microwave or a separate piece of equipment? Will I miss it if I never had one before? Is it worth the $50 more? And do you have model recommendations for a microwave or ones to steer clear of? I'm not anticipating another 40 year run (not even for me!), but it would be nice if it lasted.
Please put your comments here or if you feel better about it, you can email me.
Back to the Ditch where the blossoms are still coming!
Aren't they pretty? Those that have fallen look like pink and white confetti on the sidewalk. It really is a glorious spring.
I thought I missed the redbuds, but they hadn't started yet. Now I am seeing many of them -- in lawns and at the Ditch, too!
Rockin' Robin thinks so, too! I have seen loads of robins this year.
And this fellow -- I'm not sure what he is yet. I need to check the bird book.
But he is very cute indeed!
I leave you with a couple of sights from late the other night. These fellows were comfortably grazing on the side walk -- Bunnies Seven and Eight.The photos are terrible -- my camera wasn't made to be a night-shooter. But I loved them. I have a feeling my gardening neighbor is not so keen!
And I loved this, too.
