Last night I pulled a bird's nest...an actual bird's nest...out of our exterior dryer vent.
We knew the birds had built a nursery there, but didn't have the heart to hurt the chicks by removing it earlier. For nearly a month, I've been hanging clothes to air-dry around our house all for the sake of four little chirpers.
Last night was it, though: the nest was empty and had to go.
I'm really looking forward to using our dryer again. I've missed living in London, but I didn't miss the air-drying-laundry-around-my-house part of life in London!
You should have seen how interested the furbabies were in smelling my gloves after I finished the bird project. They were rather disappointed that I didn't bring them a bird as a gift.
