I know you're reading this with your usual shock at seeing a post from me!
Things have been rather busy, but all is good!
I really don't have any stitching to show right now, but I will soon!
I was in charge of a wonderful organ recital last week, and it went so well! We had a guest artist to come and play. It was very well attended and the priest and I were so pleased! I have two more recitals scheduled-one in December and one in January! I am very excited about that!
First shock: My Halloween Tree is already up!! I have been so tired of Summer....it's still a little bit hot here, but that won't be for long! The weatherman says that it will be around 80 degrees by Friday, so that's certainly positive. I decided to put up the Halloween Tree, to make it seem more like the Fall! haha I will show you a photo on my next post!
Second shock: I have started feeding the birds! It is a huge shock, even to me, but something I've wanted to do for a while. A good friend gave me a lovely handmade bird feeder, several holidays ago! It is beautifully shaped and so smooth and pretty. I didn't hang it up for a while. Then, I finally got a handyman to do the honors when he was here to complete a long list of other things. It's on the eave of my house, outside the breakfast room bay window. Ok--feeder up, but no food. I routinely forgot the food and would remember it about midnight! I looked out one day and a sweet little bird was sitting in it, looking at it with a pitiful face. I got in my car and went to Kroger for food! They really liked that! Then, my church was selling candles, etc, and there was a seed bell in there, so I got 2 of those. There was another hook out there already, so I hung one. All the birdies were so very happy. I knew the bell would break eventually, and it did. SO, back to Kroger for a long plastic feeder with 6 perches! Everyone is elated! I have never had any experience with hummingbirds-never had the desire. BUT, I looked out and one was circling the seed feeder looking forlorn, so when I was in Lowe's later that day, I got a hummingbird feeder and the "juice" and a hook!! The handyman was back, so he hung that one, too. Now everyone is happy! I love to watch them. Omar gets on the kitchen table (a no-no) and watches them while trembling and slapping his tail around! He has really enjoyed them, too! Beth from Garden Grumbles has no worry that I will ever have as many feeders as she, or as much knowledge! I would like to, but that would require that I hire someone to handle it all! But it's certainly been fun and I try to look them up in a book to identify them! I'm doing pretty well with that! Here are the most amateur photos you will ever see! But, I will work on that in the near future!
I always show a photo or two....
Omar is my happy cat! He loves to get my shoes and roll on them. I guess they have my smell and he just loves to be on them!
I can't make a post without including sweet Zoe! She was all dressed up for a football game! She has learned to clap! She also can sit up by herself and is beginning to crawl. She is 8 months old!
Thanks for your visit! I will post my Halloween very soon!
