Mom suggested hummingbirds in their nest for this week's Illustration Friday theme of "packed." I liked the idea, but it made me think of other things compacted into a small area...things that are packed into their surroundings: a snowball in a mitten, a cat in its knitted bed, and hummingbirds packed into their tiny nest.
I had a pleasant weekend away from home. I went out to my parents' island home and then out the other direction to a friend's home near Mt. Rainier. It was a nicely quiet weekend. Quiet: like snow, or a napping cat, or hummingbirds sleeping off a sugary meal.
