A sweet pair of Carolina Wrens have started visiting the bird feeders hanging in the Crepe Myrtle tree outside our bathroom window. They're our state bird here in South Carolina. I hope they have a nest started somewhere close by.
This house has proven to be a great spot for birds. The feeders are always busy with lots of different species. With all the bird calls and singing, our yard reminds us of a campsite sometimes. The screened in back porch is one of my favorite places to spend time during the weekends.
Last summer I made a new friend, Norma, the mother of a student at the school where I work. Norma and her family are from Mexico, and while she's working on learning English, I'm trying to improve my Spanish. We met up for coffee a couple of times and did our best to have conversations (sometimes we both have to use Google translate on our phones to get more complex ideas across!). Well, last weekend Norma invited me to her house and she and her husband cooked for me!
Everything was delicious, including the Ceviche I tried for the first time. I didn't get a photo of that, but I did sneak one of the next dish.

Time with friends, wild birds, beautiful weather, it doesn't get much better than that. I hope you've had a good weekend, too, friends.
