The recycled house

click to enlargeI caught MrB's cold that he had 2 weeks ago, of course (how could I escape?), and also (typical me) followed up with yet another sinus infection, so I have been sick for nearly a week. This is getting sooo old. This one is in the ears. Ugh. Anyway, I spent some of my shut-in time yesterday building this birdhouse. I got the idea on Obamacycle, a networking site that's about reusing campaign materials instead of throwing them away. Last time we went down to our recycling center I asked if they had any campaign signs and they gave me a stack of plain white corrugated plastic boards that somebody had brought in. Here's a post about doing this showing signs that have printing on them, but since mine were plain white I recycled a bumper sticker as decoration and called it done.

Come on, birdies!

Are you sure it's a cold and not cedar fever? I actually don't think I've had a cold since I went vegetarian some 17 years ago. I did have cedar fever after moving to Austin for a few years but even managed to get over that with the help of something that isn't legal.

Cedar showed up on my allergy tests, but then MrB had what I think was a cold, then I got sick.

I think that miracle drug should be legal, don't you?
