A Bluebird Day
Today I heard a lovely trilling in the trees in the neighborhood. Since I didn't have my glasses on, I enlisted my "eyes" (children) to help see what was making the sound. Before long, we discovered the source of the mysterious song: Eastern Bluebirds!
We were able to zoom in on them and get a few nice photos before they moved on. There were two males and two females, presumably pairs. These are the best of all we took~
In Idaho, where we're from, bluebirds can be hard to get a look at, usually up in the hills. We'll have to put up a nesting box or two!
In other news, Frankie helped me make a homemade seasoning salt to use at the table. We included sea salt, black pepper, granulated garlic, herbs de Provence, ground sesame and sunflower seeds, and powdered shiso from last year's garden. Easy and thrifty!
We have been growing wheatgrass to juice and share with our cat. My children love to chew on it like gum, as well! Wheatgrass has been much more reliable for me that microgreens, which seem to suffer from lack of natural sunlight in the house.
What thrifty things have you been up to?
