Our Nest is Empty, Again.

I didn’t ever get the chance to post about it, but about two weeks ago my dad found a baby bird nest in our house. And not the outside! We don’t know how long it has been there because the eggs were already hatched. I don’t know how we missed it. We didn’t have the heart to kick them out, and really they weren’t hurting anything. It was nice to know that someone was putting our house to use while we work on it. They were cute to watch anyway.

A few days ago my dad saw them flying around the room, and later that day they were gone. I didn’t get to see them when they were actually out of the nest. However, there are some small birds that have been hanging out in one of the trees in our backyard. They might not be the same ones, but I think they are. (Ladies intuition you know.)

Sadly I did not get any pictures of them. The nest was dark and I didn’t want to bother them with a flash. But let me tell, they were cute. You will just have to take my word on it.

So now our nest is empty again, and we can finish it. We hope to get a lot of work done this weekend, but Jacob has to work some overtime this weekend.

Sorry this is such a short post I am still working on my book. I am only at 37,732. So I still have a long way to go. Hopefully I will have a longer post up soon. Until next time.

 

 

 

 

Changing the Blog

The past week or so I have been doing a lot of thinking about what I want my blog to be. Some of you may have noticed that  I took down the theme posts. Those were great and all but they aren’t really what I want this blog to be about. Where they good for stats? Yes, but it doesn’t matter how high your stats are if the people viewing your blog aren’t 1) active, 2) going to stick around and read the rest of your blog.

This is my house wife blog. (Kind of like a mommy blog but without the kids.) This is a blog for wives, (with or without kids), I want it to be a place where wives can give and receive advice and ideas from other wives. This is a blog for women by women. While I may be the only one posting on here right now, I hope to be able to have guest wives come and give their advice/thoughts at some point.

So while the theme post and all had been great, not only were they going to be a lot of work, they were also changing the blog into something it isn’t supposed to be.  I hope that all of you will stick around while I try to build and grow a community. It will take time, and I will have to get better about blogging and all, but we can do it together.

Also, I’m sorry for my absents the past two weeks. I had a week off of my college classes and all of my free time went to writing my book. I am currently at 30,885 words. I have never gotten that far before so it was worth taking time away from everything else to focus on that. Any writers on here will understand when I say that I just couldn’t stop writing. It was like all of a sudden my plot made sense and it all just came together. I would be farther into it by now if it wasn’t for the fact that my classes started, and my brain feels like mush.

Anyway, I will have a new post up next week until then goodbye!

There was this adorable wall clock, but it cost $135 dollars, so for most of us it’s not happening. I found it on this website that has an option for you to find similar items. Hopefully you can find something like it if you don’t want to spend that much on a clock, I don’t blame you.
