Shut-in Entertainment....

During the past few days, I've been spending LOTS of time in the house. One can only spend SO much time cleaning. Then, one needs another source of entertainment... Even the CATS were getting bored, with all the rain! Fortunately, nature provided us with hours and hours of continuous entertainment, right out the living room window!What a thrill! I've always loved hummingbirds but never had the opportunity to see them up so close. They've literally been swarming the feeders. I'm not sure if they're so hungry because of all the rain and the (somewhat) cooler temperatures, or if they're preparing for their fall migration. But they sure have brightened our lives, the past few days and we will MISS them, when they are gone...


  1. I'm catching up on my blog reading and was thrilled to be welcomed by the lovely site of hummingbirds on a rainy day. While the rest of the country is drowning, we have been bone dry and hot so it is nice to see some lovely grey (complete with jewels!)

  2. I feel for you with the continuing heat. I think I'd rather have non-stop rain than suffocating heat, any day!

    The rains have finally let up and the sun is shining again! Best of all, it's blessedly cool and comfortable!! I'm mowing like a wild woman and finally getting the ewe barn cleaned. Katie and I are having a blast, getting the house all fixed up...
