Yeah!! A Few More Sprinkles!

July 25, 2010
Good morning. Yes, it is quite lovely at the moment. The sun isn't too bright yet, so the temperature is still in the 70's. It's 6:30 am, I'm at work, but I will be going home soon. Miss Tootsie has an appointment this morning at the beauty salon. After that, I hope I can catch a nap before coming back to work tonight.

With a bit of luck, I might even be able to make the forum chat later this afternoon. If not, I'm sure the ladies will keep me updated. Most folks have weekends off from work, but I do most of my work hours during the weekend. It's good because it leaves most of my week free to do other things.

Yesterday, we finally did get a little patch of rain. Not really very much, thought. Although some places did get quite a bit of rain, we only got enough to make one tiny puddle. Oh well. I'm sure the lawns and gardens are thankful for what they did get.

7:55 am - I'm home now, and my little girl is happily gnawing on her morning chicken chewie treat. She absolutely loves these things. Little does she know, she's going to be getting a nice bath and a new hair do shortly. That's not on her list of top ten fun things!!

I did manage to take a few photos yesterday during the "rain" of our birdie friends at the feeder. Rain or shine, they still get hungry. The new dome cover we put on the feeder is working well to keep the food dry

We also had a rather soggy little chickadee come to dinner. Usually they flit away quickly, but this little kid must have been hungry because he stayed a few minutes.
Just outside my living room windows, there are hedges that come up over the windowsill. These hedges are a favorite hiding place and a refuge from the weather for the birds. When I peeked out, this little sparrow was tucked inside the hedge keeping dry.
I've been taking these photos with the rental lens. It's a Tamron 18-270mm. I can't vouch for the long distance shots, but the close up shots are rather good. The weight of the lens is good too. These shots are all hand held.
Now it's time to start getting ready to take Miss Tootsie to the salon, and while she's there maybe I can look around for a few photo opps. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a marvelous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
