Today is Slice of Life Tuesday – the weekly writing challenge hosted at Two Writing Teachers.

 

I have missed having a nesting robin family on our porch for several years now. But several weeks ago, a new nest was built, and a family of robins moved in.

It has been so interesting watch the parents come and go. The mom sits most of the time. I hate to disrupt her by opening the patio door and coming out on the porch – which I usually have to do at least once a day.

The mom flies off, often to the clothes line and chirps at me. I can just imagine what she is yelling at me!

Yesterday, I snuck a photo of her nest and saw three eggs.

Today is the Tuesday Slice of Life – the weekly writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”

I have just finished another daily writing challenge, for April. In some ways, it was good to be finished – after two months of daily writing/blogging, I now have a bit of a break.

But, it has helped solidify my writing habit. I want to write and the ideas have started to flow more readily. The March SOL and the April Blogging Challenge gave me sixty days of routine, of daily writing and support.

This past month also connected me with Amy Krouse Rosenthal. Her death still seems surreal.

I used her “Encyclopedia of Me” to post daily, choosing one of her themes daily to write about some aspect of my life.

I plan to continue to fill the book, jotting down lists, observations and memories as they come. Saturday was #MoreforAKR and it was a special day to celebrate this wonderful, amazing woman.

While visiting a church bazaar, I found my #MoreforAKR – I bought lunch for an elderly woman. We then spent a lovely half hour visiting together. I left with a smile and a few books.
