Last week's fishbowl went well. I am still writing. I also have stuff left to post.

Regarding internet, we still don't have full access. We are supposed to have the technician back on Tuesday to check access (so we can trim more if needed) and the hookup is scheduled for Friday. However, it's supposed to start raining tomorrow and continue for at least a week. :/ So it's likely the connection won't happen on schedule. Again.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are two open epics at present.

"Protect the Forests" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses and has 4 new verses. The Iron Horses talk about connecting with the land.

"Pride Against Prejudice" belongs to Polychrome Heroics and has 8 new verses. The autograph tables are impressive.

The weather has been windy and intermittently rainy here. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a flock of blackbirds, a flock of mourning doves, a flock of sparrows, several cardinals, several dark-eyed juncos, several house finches, several robins, 2 male and 1 female goldfinches, 1 male and 1 female rose-breasted grosbeak, a male and a female Baltimore oriole, a red-winged blackbird, a brown thrasher, a phoebe, a gray catbird, a yellow-bellied woodpecker, and a squirrel. Currently blooming: violets, tulips, celandine poppy, yellow violet, jack-in-the-pulpit, honeysuckle, wild cherries, nannyberry, creeping bellflower, purple allium, lily of the valley, comfrey.  Poppies, white iris, and white alliums have buds.

It has been a spectacular month for birds.  We have two species that I rarely see in this area -- rose-breasted grosbeaks and orioles -- of which the orioles are entirely new in this yard.  :D 3q3q3q!!!
