Well with all the garden done until fall I feel like a bird out of the cage. Now I have some free time to enjoy blogland once again, do some crafting and take some photos with my new camera. While visting with a neighbor last week we were sitting out next to the deck and their hummingbird feeder was covered up with hummers. Probably 8 or 10 at a time fighting over the food so when I got home I put my feeder back up and within about 10 minutes this is what I had coming to visit. Now there are 3 of them.
I think he eats more than he weights. He stays there all the time. I think I need another feeder for the rest of them. He doesn't what to share the food.
Sitting on the clothesline waiting his turn. They are so tiny but so beautiful.
Time sure does go by fast when we're having fun or so they say. After the adventure with the rattlesnake I was afraid to go to the garden for a while. When I did I had a mess. The tomatoes and green beans were out of control.
I've been busy trying to put stuff up in the freezer. Tomorrow I'm going after some okra and that will be the end of my freezing for a while. Hope to plant a fall garden so I can have some turnip greens and collards and that will be all till next spring.
I will be glad when we have a break in this hot weather. No rain for several weeks and everything is so dry. The weatherman said we have a 50% chance of rain for the weekend. I hope he is not wrong. I would settle for 100%.
I've been working on some projects and when I have them finished I will post some pictures. I am already thinking about Christmas. It will be here before we know it.
I live in Alabama with my husband, 2 cats,3 dogs and a tank full of fish. We've been married 11 wonderful years. We have 3 grown children between us and 5 grandchildren. We live a simple life. We love going camping when we have the time. I love crafting, making cards using rubber stamps and the Cricut Expression, scrapbooking, yard sales and collecting things. I worked for a local newspaper until the end of October,2009 when I lost my job. I had been there for almost 41 years. So now what do you do, you either start over somewhere else or just retire and I choose to try the retired route. I'm sure it will be fun not having to go to work everyday with all the stress. This will be my first summer at home in a long time but I'm sure I can find plenty to do. We are both christians and attend a wonderful church.We put God first and everything else just falls into place. We are truly blessed.
