It's a binos-in-the-window kind of place

We unearthed our binoculars from their cardboard enclosures in the garage.  We're lucky to have lots of birds visiting our front and back gardens. This morning we saw chickadees, nuthatches, house finches, flickers, a downy woodpecker, a goldfinch, and some mourning doves. It is nice to see and hear these little birdies in the morning, it is quite different from our garden in Toronto, where we were lucky to get sparrows. It is lovely! The other day I also saw an escaped budgie, which just made me sad.

In other news, Heiko is starting to take an interest in books.


  1. Oh my, that picture of Heiko and P is absolutely adorable. Such a happy family!

  2. Reading at four months. Am i surprised? Nooo! Proud oma
