We live at a time where we have too many possible choices. One of the reasons I like shopping at Aldi is that the choices are so simple — there's only one brand of most items!

As a result, life is a series of points of re-prioritizing. I've just hit one of those points myself. I'll explain more about that at the end of this post.
In the past I have posted pictures of several different years when chickadees nested in our bird house. Here's a link to one of the posts about the first nesting. Last week our bird house was visited by chickadees again, and so we thought we would get to see the process again. Then later this week a pair of bluebirds visited our bird house and even began to put grass and leaves inside. The past several days when the bluebirds aren't there, nuthatches have begun to put nesting materials inside also. We never knew we had such prime real estate in our back yard! Here's a picture of the female bluebird on top of the bird house yesterday afternoon.

Here are several jokes I've received recently, both of which deal with some facet of too much.
