COLD AND WET DAYS

These past days have been very rainy; today was extremely cold because of the wind. Anyway, the weather is simply perfect for working at the torch as that keeps me nice and warm! The trees outside our windows have lost all their leaves and guess what I discovered - two baby pigeons in the nest on the tree right outside our window! Fabulous view of the babies since the trees are bare. However, I feel so sorry for the baby pigeons (what is the name for baby pigeons, 'piglings' perhaps?!), they are soaked through from the rain although one of their parents is there most of the time. I get to watch everyday how the babies get fed by the parent. What is cute is, when one of them turns around to get comfy, the other baby will also simultaneously turn too. Sort of like Chang and Eng, the Siamese twins!! I have to take photos and post it here to show you how fluffy the babies are.

Here are some of my latest beads, yes, bird beads and more fish beads!
