Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

While trimming trees...

As I approached the hawthorne bush by the driveway to do some (much-needed!) trimming this past weekend, I heard some very loud tweeting! I could hardly believe what I discovered! A nest – full of baby birds – right on eye-level! Based on the looks of their vigilant mama, they're probably mockingbirds.

Look at those wide-open beaks!

How fun! This may be the first time I've enjoyed a real live, close-up view of this segment of God's creation. I'm excited – Elizabeth was, too!

Awww! Aren't little ones precious? Hey, how did you get a picture on the top of your blog? I've been wanting to do that! Help!

When you’re signed in, click on the “Customize” tab (on the top right) or the “Layout” tab (on the top left, if you’re on the “Dashboard”). The “Add and Arrange Page Elements” page should appear. Click the “Edit” link on the “Header” tab. There should be an “Image” option. Choose “From your computer” and then “Browse” for the picture you want. Choose your picture and its “Placement” (I chose “Behind title and description”) and then click “Open.” After the picture uploads, click “Save” and you’re done!

(It was good to hear your voice, my friend! I need to call you...)
