Paradise ponders...

Paradise ponders...  Debbie's making her famous Amish beef stew today.  That means I had “chopping duty”: cutting up the meat and (lots of!) veggies.  It's gonna smell real good in the house pretty soon.

My mom is much on my mind today.  She's having a slightly risky procedure (a heart biopsy) done this morning, and she's a million miles away in Virginia.  My sister Holly is with her.  It was supposed to start about 3 hours before the time I'm writing this, and I haven't heard any news...

We saw a female black-headed grosbeak on our feeders this morning (like the one at right, but that's not my photo).  The males in their mating plumage (which would be right now) are beautiful medleys of black, orange, and yellow.  This was a very common bird for us back in Jamul, but this is the first one we've seen on our place.  I hope this means we have a nesting pair nearby!

I'm working on my office again today.  Yesterday I finished hanging all the acoustic panels on my walls – that leaves just four flat panels to go on the ceiling.  I'm going to lay out all the measurements today, but I can't actually hang them until the hardware comes in.  That was supposed to be today, but the shipment was delayed by weather; now they won't be here until tomorrow.  My little refrigerator should get here sometime today, and the blinds for my windows are coming in Fedex this morning.  I have plenty to do :)
