Another Elena funny

And no, I haven't worked on the shawl yet today at all. Too busy doing errands, cleaning, etc. I plan to work on it for an hour once I finish this post. Yes, I have added pressure by letting the person buying it know it'll be done Wednesday night and I have work all day tomorrow. Sigh.

Anyway, my Elena funny.

Yesterday, she was standing at the kitchen door, looking out the window and saw a cardinal. She called me in and showed me and mentioned how bright the bird looked. I explained that the red cardinals and the blue blue jays were the male birds and that the females weren't as pretty, just gray. I started explaining how with birds, the male species are the most colorful as to attract females. She was listening intently and nodding and about 30 seconds later mentioned that she never knew that birds had mail people and received mail like we did. At first I just stared a second and then realized I never really discussed male/boy and female/girl before-ha! I assume too much sometimes.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, get back to the shawl now.

With Elena being so smart and grown-up like, it is easy to forget what she doesn't know yet.
Your storys of her make me chuckle.

That is cute!
I love cardinals - miss them here.
Enjoy yours, and the blue jays (I wonder if they are the same blue jays that are in OK? ).

I'm behind on my blog reading. I'm glad that you did not have to be admitted to the hospital. Hope you are feeling better.
