The Crow's Nest - April 10, 2012

Whoa! What is going on? I woke up this morning to snow flurries - and cool, cool temperatures. This is not fun. It is a balmy 32 degrees outside now at 2 PM. O, it is easy to complain when the weather is not ideal. We truly have had marvelous weather most all of this past winter and this spring. It seems funny how just a few days ago I windows open listening to lawn mowers out in neighboring yards.

The signs of spring are all around us. We have had an unusual population of robins come through the area. I don't recall seeing this many robins in past springs. The flickers keep busy thatching our lawn for us also. We average 3 - 4 birds crashing into our sun room windows daily. I have hung things on the windows to try and deflect the birds, but it hasn't done much good. When a flicker hits the window it sounds like a sonic boom. I feel so sorry for all of them.

Sadie and Abbie Sondeland, Haley FIngarson and Kristian Myrdal took home 1 place prizes at the State Science Fair last week held at UND. Congratulations to them. I know they put in long hours as did their science teacher, Loretta Monson, getting their projects ready.

Finally, today is the day the transition to the new website is taking place. I personally thank Amy Hall for all the help she has given me. This really has been a long, arduous project. I am SO glad to have it completed.

We welcome Darrin and Nichole Olafson to Edinburg. They purchased the Espelien home. Also welcome to Evan Stabo who bought Matt & Veronica Byron's home. We are happy to have you all living in Edinburg.

I hope everyone had a very happy Easter. It was a great afternoon for watching the Masters from Augusta also.

We are leaving for Scotland this week. I hope the daffodils are still in bloom there. Hope all is well and we will talk later.
