… or, How To Make Dish Washing Exciting.

I am usually fairly dutiful about cleaning dishes. I choose not to have
a dishwashing machine, so it’s all me. Though it’s never, historically,
been my favorite thing to do, I have managed to make my mornings at the
sink some of my most magical. I have the fortune of a window over the
sink. This window overlooks part of my back yard, a part which I’ve
turned into my little piece of Eden. The central view of this window is
the Birdfeeder Buffet. I will often stand at the sink to eat my
breakfast and drink my tea so I can watch Critter Cinema. This morning,
I was rewarded by special guest appearances – American Goldfinches!
Last year, I had Lesser Goldfinches, so this is their first spotting of
these amazingly brilliant yellow birds.

I also found another new bird to my yard at the end of March which,
with the aid of the trusty bird ID book I keep on the window ledge, I
identified as a Red Shafted Northern Flicker.

Every day I grow more deeply in love with the little patch of land I’ve
cultivated and I feel rewarded by so many delightful visitors to
entertain and amaze me.

Breathe deeply,
Laugh with abandon,
Love wholly,
Eat well.
