Poem for Wednesday and Birdie Update!

It was a pretty quiet Tuesday, revolving mostly around laundry and the baby bird, who flew! We went over to visit Rose and return her birdie shirts and towels, which I had offered to wash and dry for her since she doesn't have a washing machine. The bird was standing on his cage in the garden, then hopping around on the ground, and at one point he took off and flew right over the fence into the neighbor's yard! Rose and Adam raced around to retrieve him; he was confused and a bit dirty from landing on the ground, but otherwise none the worse for wear. Our concern now is that he may fly out of our reach before he can feed himself, since he still barely pecks at berries and water and insists on being fed through an eyedropper as often as he's allowed, so the goal is to get him accustomed to eating solid food and using the bird bath before he takes off.

In the afternoon, I folded laundry while watching L.A. Confidential, which a comment from someone who'd read my fanfic made me feel like seeing again. It's still completely not my type of film and also completely excellent. Adam went to the pool, then to a friend's house where they apparently made chocolate-covered popcorn with a third friend (as well as a mess). Daniel did some research on his summer project, then went to vertigo66's house after dinner to work with her husband on the power supply. The rest of us bird-sat while Rose was out teaching and watched Warehouse 13, which wasn't very memorable except for Tia Carrere, whom I adored on Relic Hunter (and I like that her character Katie and Myka got along instead of competing for Pete's attention).
