All last week I watched as many as seven blue herons on the Mississippi River as I took a lunchtime walk from work. Delight! Looked them up in my bird book and concluded they were Little Blue Herons. Brought my book in this week to compare, but they were all gone. Haven't seen them since. What a serendipity that was!
Sock watch: yesterday Marius's socks were tan and tan. Ever since I started the sock watch, it's been dull, but I'll keep with it. Maybe we'll have a return to the red and orange combos necessitated by our previous laundry slowdown.
