We are down to a single digit list of things to do to the inside of the apartment. We're kind of thinking to be done by Wednesday, and we're both chomping at the bit to get it all done.
Next week, I'll be headed to my son's house for a week. He's working away for the next two weeks, and this will give my daughter-in-law a bit of a break from flying solo.
Tim went happened on a yard sale this afternoon, and came back with two pair of converse sneakers for William. He sent me back over to look at the clothing. There were two of the most adorable little baby dresses, smocked and embroidered. I could not restrain myself. I asked the woman if she had any boys clothes. She waved her hand at a gaggle of boys riding bikes, a little girl trying to keep up with them. "Boys clothes gets handed down 3 or 4 times. There's nothing left of them when they get done. I only have one girl." Made me laugh.
A strange thing happened. A pair of geese were resting behind the renovation. They had four half grown goslings. I thought it was sweet, the little ones all curled up around one of the adults. The other adult was standing alertly watching me. I went back inside and continued working. Later, I came out and saw one gosling all by itself, silently walking up and down the bank scanning the water.
I know that geese are very devoted parents, so I was convinced this was not one of the family of geese that I saw earlier. However, the very next day, I saw a pair of geese come up from the river to curl up once again. This time they had only three goslings with them.
I've been keeping an eye out for one lone gosling. I haven't see him.
