Thursday

We have had a wonderfully busy day today, which included a visit to the post office, a grocery shop and an old friend popped in for tea, which was lovely. This morning I wound wool into balls to send off to someone, their shape reminds me of mango pips…

We had to make a new batch of laundry soap for the washing machine… It is amazing and this whole batch of 11 litres only cost me R 16.00 to make which is about $ 2.00! You can find the recipe on Rhonda’s blog. It’s so nice to walk past the laundry section in the grocery store and know that I don’t need to buy any expensive soap that is full of chemicals…

Today while the girls were outside in the garden with their friend, they noticed two White Eye birds frantically flying around looking for something. Finally, they discovered a little baby White Eye bird on the ground. We didn’t know what to do so we decided to take the little wooden bird house that Caiden made and put it up in the tree near where the nest could possibly have been. Then we put him in the house and waited to see what would happened next.

Well…

Isn’t he just gorgeous??

His mommy found him and started to bring him food, it was the sweetest moment… it was beautiful…

See you all tomorrow for Creative Friday.

    I’m glad the little bird was alright! We’ve had that happen a couple of times recently, and at first I had no idea what to do, because I’ve always been told that if a mother-bird smells human on her young she won’t go near them. Thankfully it turns out that’s not usually the case!

    Awww, my heart just melted at the baby bird story, how cute! You all were so smart in helping him out because I wouldn’t have known what in the world to do!

    Those yarn balls look so yummy, perfect for the season.

    Thank you for posting this. I am going to be making my own detergent as soon as I can track down washing soda.

    So wonderful to read about how your family reunited the baby bird with his mama. He truly is gorgeous.

    Two dollars for all of that laundry soap … wow. I will have to check out that recipe.

    Take care

    Was he on the ground because he is a fledgling, and learning to fly? We have species of birds that do that….

  14. Linda October 23, 2011 at 8:08 pm #

    Hi Sara,
    He definatley couldn’t fly, he is doing very well now, his mom and dad are feeding him:)

    I like happy endings :-)

    So fortunate that his mama came for him. Sometimes they don’t. We’ve had several sad stories in this vein. but I’m with Jenni – happy endings are my preference.
