Mr. & Mrs. Robin Build a Nest

Two weeks ago today, I was once again startled by Marion's boisterous exuberance while drinking my morning coffee. I stayed up half the night attempting to put the last two weeks into words, when it dawned on me that in some cases words just won't do. So today I present you Our Robin's Nest in the making:

I'm leaving for Idaho on Tuesday so this will be my last post until I return. There are so many days to celebrate in the Yummy Month of May, I do hope you will Party Hardy because I know for sure I will! It seems, the grandkids have big plans for this year's visit so it may take me a few days to recuperate when I return:)

As usual, I will have limited access to the internet unless my daughter Michele finds the time to teach me how to use my new MacAir, which I'm bringing with me. We'll see how that goes:)

Enjoy the merry month of May everyone and I'll see you soon, Louise.

  23. I hope you're having a wonderful trip, Louise. I knew from one of your past posts that chocolate chip day was this month so I had to stop by to see if there were more wonderful chocolate recipes and stories here that I NEEDED to know about :) Alas, I guess I will have to make do for now with the hundreds of chocolate recipes I've already printed out or cut out from magazines. Enjoy your family time, Louise, and we will look forward to your return here.

Through this wide opened gate,
none came too early,
none returned too late.

Thanks for dropping in...Louise
