Well, the first Decorah eaglet hatched today. I couldn't live blog because I was at work but I got some screen shots and made some notes.

It is pretty cool to watch these guys. And I get bird noises and such even though I am lacking window access.
A few months ago I was very excited about something I was supposed to be starting. Well, it flopped. I was supposed to be handling social media for a journal and the editor has decided that while having a Twitter account is a good thing, actually tweeting is overrated so it is languishing and waiting on her to tweet again. So I set up the account, made about 20 adjustments to get it to look exactly the way she wants it to look, and then was left to cool my heels. C'est la vie.
Finished the raised bed tonight...
The frilly yellow tulips are blooming. They came with the house and somewhere they picked up some red streaks in the petals.
I guess that's all for today, then. I need to get cleaned up so I can go to bed. I feel better than I did when I got home. I need some excitement in my life of the good variety. A new friend would do the trick...
Oh, and here is the blue lilac with the purple buds in the background. This one smells heavenly but not quite like a lilac should.
I had the best rest at lunch today, and I think I started a trend. I crash out by this fountain, which isn't running right now. So when I flopped over there may have been about 2 other people out there enjoying the day. When my alarm went off and I sat up, almost all of the benches had a person laying down and snoozing. It looked like nap time at daycare. I just had to laugh.
