Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

Happy Monday!

So, I was out shooting the other day and this little guy was very elusive, but I finally captured a shot (not as close as I’d like!).  I really don’t know my bird specie names, so I had to google a description to find out. I typed in black bird with yellow head and breast. I kind of hoped for an exotic NEW name that I could learn.  No, his name isn’t exotic at all! It’s name is “Yellow-headed Blackbird” – so basically my description IS the name.  Here’s an audio of the Yellow-headed Blackbird {HERE}.

Yeah, so that was pretty random…here’s some more miscellany:

I’ve tried a couple of NEW dinner recipes lately. There was a Cordon Bleu casserole, and a Taco Casserole. One of my sons texted me and said “Mom, you’re killing it with the new recipes! – that court on blue was BOMB”  Sheesh! Did I raise this kid in a cave?!?  Here was my reply:

cordonbleu

AND…actually I was wrong too.  The dish apparently originated in Switzerland – not France.  I learned something NEW! I tried to keep a journal of all the cute things my boys said when they were toddlers – I didn’t know I needed to when they are…well, much older than a toddler! Now I know! (Basically, this blog IS my journal).

Lastly, I was doing some family history research and found a cousin of a cousin who died at the very same hotel we stayed at on our visit to New York in March. Hmmm….I wonder what room he was in! :o) Kind of freaky-weird!

Have a great day!  Do or learn something NEW!
