Swallow-tailed Kites and 4,000 Spark Points!
Sunday, April 18, 2010
My friends have a pair of Swallow-tailed Kites building a nest in their yard! The are so lucky. I haven't seen them yet, it rained most of the day today, so I didn't get to go over to look. They have a huge yard with lots of big trees and a lake with an island in it. Sometimes I wish I could move in with them. Their yard is also where I saw my first Black-bellied Whistling Ducks. The picture on my Spark Page is of those same ducks. I hope I will be able to get some pictures of the kites, I just have a small camera. I will post them if I do.
I weighed myself this afternoon and I am down two more pounds! Of course, that was before we went to my brother-in-laws for dinner. He is a very good cook. I think I did OK, though. I mostly stuck with the vegetables, although I did succumb to the italian bread. I also successfully resisted the Hershey's Cherry Cordial Kisses (no easy task!)
WooHoo! When I post this I will have exactly 4,000 Spark Points!
