More winter weather is on the way and we have more babies!

Well it looks like I am getting my wish for snow! We had a light snow storm last weekend and we are expected to get another one this weekend that will actually be starting tomorrow. This is great for Christmas cheer but bad for Christmas tree cutting. We had planned to cut our tree down last weekend but the storm stopped us, then we said we would do it this weekend but it looks as though the storm is stopping us again… We will see how the weather pans out, if it’s not too bad we may still go chop our tree down on Sunday.

Some of you already know that one of our finch eggs hatched this week, well I have more to report in that area! We now have two baby finches in the nest; daddy finch appears to be keeping them warm and fed so we may have some finches to give away for the holidays! It’s pretty cool to be able to witness the whole procreating process here in our home! We are so excited about the babies!

Our car drama has also worked its self out nicely. The woman who hit us was very nice and she explained the whole situation to her insurance company. They are taking care of the damage and our car rental while the damage is being repaired. We had an estimate done today on the damage and it came out to $2800! The shop will have our car for 10 business days (from Dec 17th – Dec 27th) and we will have a rental car for that time. We are thankful that the insurance clam has been easy and hassle free but we feel bad for the lady because of how costly the incident has turned out to be. At least it was just a parking lot fender bender and nobody was hurt!

Well, that is all I have to report here! I hope everyone stays warm and safe this week!

  1. That’s wonderful that your finches are doing well.

    Glad your car is going to be taken care of. It’s always nice when you get a loaner. Those fender benders can be expensive! Good thing she had insurance.
    We received snow today in Maryland. In fact it is still snowing. My daughter and I are excited.
