The first week of May is always busy here at the Three Cats Ranch. Three birthdays and Mother's Day, all within a week's time mean there's lots of cooking, eating, and celebrating. Today, the month can continue on with us behaving as normal people do. And while, I won't claim that we are representative of "normal" people, I am happy for our brand of normal to get back to normal, if you know what I mean.
It rained most of the day. I wouldn't have been motivated to fill our bird feeders except that family was coming. The birds and squirrels provide endless entertainment, and so I trekked out between rain showers to feed the critters. I was really glad I did because later in the afternoon, I saw a Western Tanager at our suet feeder.
