Well, the return visit went really well. My parents were relaxed when they got back from Maine and dad told stories about the puffins and the Shaker Village they saw.

Happy Summer Solstice! It’s the longest day of the year, so do something useful with it. Sean and I painted the entryway and hallway tonight, but really that was after the sun went down. I didn’t do anything exciting with my day. Well, I bought about $90 worth of bone color and white paint and » Continue reading…

The little weaning girls made a mess of their cage tonight. They managed to empty out the entire water bottle and get the whole front half of their cage wet (That happens a lot when the babies are learning to drink on their own). So the shavings were wet and their food pile was wet » Continue reading…
