All the birdies came out to play, Brenda filled her bird buffet. From pine nuts to millet, black oil to Suet. Meal worms, grape jelly and Orange slices kept everyone happy. I think the rain helped because I’ve never had that many birds in my shrubs just singing and chirping away. Others waited patiently for the bird baths and the feeder ports. I still have one red finch that I’m trying to get a photo of, but it takes off every time I move even a little. I’ll have to set up a blind like last year, till they get used to me again. I’m sure I smell way different from last year.
Running through the perennials at lightning speed this year. Can’t keep anything alive in this heat. It was 103 here today. Anyway, we has a couple of good rains last night and today so I’m anxious to see what kind of fungus has sprouted overnight. I think I’ll take Oscar in the morning to hunt mushrooms.
Did get a pretty vessel done today using a tutorial from a class I took in 2005. Back when my life had a plan and no plan at all. Turned out better than I thought it would.
I hope everyone’s kiln creations rock socks tomorrow. I’m going to try this again and see what results I get. Not really liking the pitting. Hopefully tomorrow while Joe is gone I can get some stuff done. I’m going to try to list some spacers in my ETSY shop tonite, before bed.
Sleep well my friends. Smell the lavender, hear the ocean crashing against the shore. The repetitive creak of the ceiling fan just stirring enough wind to create a breeze. One rum punch and I’m out like a light. Sleep well.
