Thank you Barefoot!

The lovely Barefoot in the Garden, a fellow Minnesota blogger nominated me for the "You Make My Day Award" and I'm just so flattered. Thank you! Now I'm supposed to nominate 10 others but to be really honest, I'll have to give it some thought and do it later.
I've got a tight schedule for this week. I'm making my list and packing for the Sax Zim Bog Festival of Birds. Ruthie the Nature Knitter is picking me up Friday morning here in the Twin Cities and we'll be car-pooling on up to our lovely hotel in Duluth. There will be a dinner and program Friday evening. Dave Benson, a naturalist from Duluth and author of Owls of the North: a Naturalist's Handbook will be the speaker. Saturday will start early (0600!) for our field trip to the Sax-Zim Bog and on to the Duluth Harbor. On Saturday evening will have dinner and Laura Erickson will speak. Laura recently took the job of science editor at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Both speaker should be great.
I am just so excited about this trip and I can't wait to share it all.

That just sounds like so much fun. It makes me almost want to live in Minnesota again. I'm really looking forward to my trip to the twin cities, Wahkon and Duluth this summer. How brave you guys are to go out in this winter weather!

Well, I'll at least be doing the Great Backyard Bird Count...while I clean house and get ready for Sunday visitors! :) Woot!

Oh, well.
