~ Sparrow Nest ~ Maggie's Fare ~ Celiac Awareness Month ~

Good 32º morning. Clear. Will be sunny. Warmed to 64º yesterday.
Yesterday I got a kick out of two little sparrows who have decided to take up residence in one of Gary's birdhouses on my front porch. I was doing dishes and watching them..... Dad is coming out and then mom brings more grass and zips inside. The last picture I am getting the 'stink eye' from dad!

When I mow the front the grass shoots out of the mower and sticks to the tree. This is the dried grass they were harvesting for their nest:
In the afternoon I took Maggie in for a nail trim. She hates it and holding her down is the hard part. She did get on the scale and, whew, hasn't lost any more weight. I've been soaking kibble with low sodium chicken stock then shredding chicken on top of that, a cut up turkey hot dog, and a cut up hard-boiled egg. She eats it all. Yeah!
It's been hard getting her to eat, because the meds she's on take away her appetite.
