Hello! It's been a busy week with planting flowers and a few trips to the Big Town. We've had lots of showers and a few thunderstorms coming through, but our county is still in the drought zone.
The pots are all completely planted on the front porch/patio and I have just a few to finish on the back patio. I also have a little garden area to plant once the soil dries out enough. We had 3 knockout roses there, but they never did very well, so BG dug them out for me.
I bought some new cushions for the chairs that go with the patio table. Also a cover to pull over the whole shebang that's supposed to keep the chairs dry when it rains.
I walked into the kitchen the other day and saw the above cardinal sitting on the window ledge. Thinking maybe he had hurt himself by flying into the window, I took a closer look. He just sat there looking at me, but appeared to be okay. The window was closed but I began talking to him like I would talk to one of my kitties.
After a bit, I turned around and went in search of my camera, thinking all the while that my new little feathered friend would be gone when I got back. He was still sitting there, waiting patiently.
I snapped a couple of pictures and began talking to him again, telling him how pretty he was and how much I enjoyed watching him and his friends flying between the nearby trees and the feeders. I'm sure he understood every word!
At one point I turned away thinking he would fly off but when I looked back at him, I saw that he had moved his body slightly so that he was looking straight into the window as if he were looking for me. I went back and talked to him a little more. Soon after, BG came home from work and I told him to take a look at the bird and when BG got close to the window, the cardinal soon flew away. He hasn't been back for another chat, but I will always remember this "tweet" visit.
Me: Stormy, what are you doing?
Stormy: What does it look like...I'm taking a bath!
Me: Do you have to do it there?
Stormy: Well, it is the bath room, isn't it?
This afternoon is almost gone and I still need to get out the vacuum and clean up after the furkids. I'm loving my little vacuum that I ordered, it does a fantastic job picking up the fur.
I'm also so thankful for Clorox Wipes. They are used several times a day, wiping off kitchen surfaces...and the bathroom vanity...that I know some little feet prance around on even though they know they aren't supposed to!
This weekend will be a busy one with BG heading back to The Project to work on the electric wiring. Last weekend was spent on yard work. Hope your weekend is a good one! Take care...
