This is the nest box that I can see from my studio window. We might actually have some bluebirds this year! We put 4 bluebird boxes on poles (and hung 5 gourds) around the yard last year and got barn swallows (in this one) and the rest of the nest boxes had wrens. Just before I took this picture there was some starling action. A starling came down and alighted on the box and the bluebirds chased it away.
I was able to see my blood work results online last night and it seems that I have a high amount of white cells in my urine - maybe I have a little UTI going on. I really don't drink enough water. I have heard before from others that UTIs can cause all kinds of unrelated symptoms - maybe that's my Traveling Pain. Will talk to the doctor about it tomorrow.
Today - lunch with Nancy and more jewelry work. The wind has died down - overcast skies today. We might have snow tonight.
