Happenings

I have had a pretty good week, a busy one.  So that is why I haven’t written anything, just have updated my facebook every day.

I finished my Habitat Steward training so now I am officially certified with the Natl. and Indiana Wildlife Federation!  That gave me a real sense of having accomplished something.  I cried even.  It would take me a while to explain so I’ll save that for another time.  I need to volunteer 30 hours working habitat type jobs, which can include bluebird stuff, plus other volunteering on projects in parks, etc, and working a project I might start myself, and other people’s.  It is just a volunteer position but I have learned alot in the 24 hour training.  It gave lots of ideas for our own yard!  Sometime I’ll do a post about creating backyard wildlife habitat, and how you can get your yard certified with the NWF!  It takes sources of food, water, cover for nesting and cover for protection. 

Today I had another meeting to go to, bleh! but a needed one, the Indiana Bluebird Society, I am on the board.  I hosted it at my husband’s office since we are centrally located for the people who had to come from different directions.  We accomplished a lot.  We only get together a couple of times a year to have these meetings and plan things.

Big news…Ed and I are going out to California this coming Thursday to visit our son  Rob!!  It worked out for us to go for a few days so it will be a nice break and a chance to see how he has settled into college, meet some of his friends, visit one of his classes, things like that.  Plus enjoy some CA sunshine and beaches.  Ed had some frequent flyer points so the flights out were almost free, can’t beat that!!  We really are in need of a little break.  Whew!!  Maybe this time we will drive up to Pasadena and see some of the places we lived and went to college.  I didn’t have the desire to do that back in August since I was already an emotional wreck dropping of my boy.  So maybe this time.

We are seeing the grass green up and things popping up out of the ground so it does feel like spring now.  Happy weekend everybody!

  1. I’m so glad you get to go. Have lots of fun! Enjoy some beach for me. If you get to meet the school Dr. tell her hi from me. I did get a bluebird house, and it is up on the side of the windmill. I hope it’s high enough. I think it’s between 5 and 6 feet up.

  2. Tammy is the sister-in-law of my friend Faye. Tammy’s husband is the pastor of Bellflower Brethren Church. We knew him when he was a little. Faye’s husband, Jim, is the one who runs ICDI, the organization that drills wells in Africa. You probably won’t meet her, but one never knows.
