I hope my husband and son can manage while I'm gone. My son will be responsible for feeding the pets so I created a feeding chart where he can check off each meal. My joker husband wrote on the top of the chart, "The pets are on a diet, do not feed." I wonder if he thinks I fuss a bit too much? Oh well, I'm sure the pets will
survive be fine.
I'm looking forward to spending time with my mom, daughter, son-in-law, grandson and new grandchild (hopefully s/he arrives while we're there). Wish me luck on my travels.

Technical details for the crafters out there - I followed a pattern called "The Love Nest" created by blogger Yellow, Pink and Sparkly. It can be found here if you would like to give it a try. I made a few minor alterations including starting with a magic circle and working in continuous rounds instead of joining each row. I also turned the body of the birds inside out as I like the fuzzy look on the 'backside". I used dark brown Lett-Lopi wool yarn for the body and tail. For the tummy and beak I used Bernat Satin in goldenrod and hook size 3.25. For the eyes I used black acrylic yarn. The nest was done using hook size 5.5 and three strands of DK yarn held together. I used scraps of yarn both wool and acrylic in grey and brown tones.
