Well, the time has finally arrived and "Pidgy" our resident doves eggs have finally hatched. If you'll remember a few posts back I called them pigeons, which is technically correct, they're from the same family and all are pigeons but the smaller ones that we have are more commonly referred to as doves. It's amazing that they're so tame. They let me take their pictures this morning with the little ones exposed- they've been under Mom or Dad since late last week and I only saw them during one of their feeding times. You'll probably notice my flowers that they're sitting on. It's funny but the plants that they're sitting on are green and look very healthy but the ones they're not sitting on aren't doing so well. I hadn't watered them thinking that since we've had so much rain they'd had enough but apparently it hasn't reached them so they were very close to dead-grrr. Darn finicky plants, they're supposed to be drought resistant.
In other news, Amanda's play was this past Thursday and she did a fabulous job. It wasn't a big budget High School extravaganza, it was her Theater class' final-sort of. So the acting level on her cast members part wasn't that high. All kids are required to take a fine art credit and she was pretty upset that her class mates weren't taking it seriously. But they did seem to pull it together and seemed to be having a good time and they're weren't too many dropped lines. I enjoyed it and the lead characters did a really good job, especially Amanda. The picture below is Amanda and the guy that played vice principle somebody- I can't remember- but he seemed pretty cool and was the only person I could get to pose with Amanda. So they can act but they're too shy to have their picture taken?
And last but not least I have discovered Angel Food Cake. I had only tried it a couple of times and wasn't crazy about it but since I'm trying to eat healthier- always- I decided to try it again. It's just a cake I purchased at Sam's Club but it was really good. I cut up some fresh strawberries and put a little sugar with them and it made a light, refreshing dessert. Homemade whipped cream would have been nice but I decided to skip that. I love summer time and am looking forward to lots more fresh fruit and veggies- yum.
