Then, later in the week the kids found a kildeer nest on the playground. Kildeer build on the ground and I'm sure when this momma came shopping for a suitable hole she didn't realize she moved in during spring break when there wasn't a soul around. Imagine her surprise when 450 kids tumbled out the doors for recess! And there she was with three eggs in her nest and right in the middle of the playground! Another adult and I put yellow police tape around her hole to 1) alert the kids to her whereabouts so she wouldn't get stepped on and 2) give them boundaries when they watched.
And here I thought for the Snappyfriends egg assignment for this week I would show a colorful bowl of eggs dyed for Easter! Maybe a before and after but I certainly wasn't expecting this!
I'm not quilting this week. No time to even think of it. I'm trying to finish the book Cutting for Stone. The apple trees are budding, the daffodils are up, the perennial beds needed cleaning, the grass is greening, it's coming along but there's just so little time for leisure this week. I'll pick up the needle after Easter weekend.
