Good morning. The birds, one squirrel and two tiny chipmunks are scurrying around outside my door gathering food. They probably all have babies to feed, so I'll be needing to go outside and re-fill the feeders. I also scatter some seed on the ground for the ground feeders. Today I'll add some peanuts to the seed.
I want to thank everyone for all the wonderful birthday wishes. They really did brighten up my day, however my birthday is not in June. I don't know how Google came up with that information, but I have tried several times unsuccessfully to change it. I'm apologizing for their boo boo because my birthday is in November. As soon as I figure out how to post something on my own FB page, I will post an announcement there. (Maybe I'll call Jazzy. She knows just about everything about this phone.)
On the plus side, It was a fun birthday. Last night, DIL Janet came by with a birthday cake, presents and a balloon. There has been a lot happening in her life lately, and she thought maybe she was wrong about the date and had forgotten my birthday.
This is my balloon, and we ate the cake. We shared some of the cake with a couple of the dwarfs too. I tried to give the presents back to her, but she insisted I keep them. Tonight I shall wear the beautiful new jammies, and I've tucked the gift certificate away for a future shopping trip. Next week, I shall make something special for our supper. (She loves fried clams, so maybe?)
Deanne and Eddie came by yesterday afternoon. This, of course, made Pogo's day just perfect. Aunty Dee is his favorite person in the whole world (besides me). He gets so excited when he sees her car pull into the driveway, and he runs to greet her as she comes in the house. It's really a happy sight to see.
Today I have a couple photos of one of our tiny chipmunks enjoying lunch at his favorite diner. Some of the birds eat from this feeder too, but the little chipmunks really love it. This photo shows Chippy climbing up the pole to get to the food. (in the new feeder) The second photo is a close up, showing how carefully he looks around to make sure no one has spotted him.
As you can see, we enjoy the wildlife here in my yard. It's a big yard, and we don't mind sharing it with all the little critters.
Today I have a new quick page for you. We have some "sailors" in our family, so I thought it would be fun to play with a couple of "seafaring" kits; one from Kyra at Russian Dutch Heart Designs (Sailors And The Sea), and one from Tiny Turtle Designs (Sea Faeries).
Here is your download link:
Now I'm off to call Aunt Lucy again. She was out yesterday when I called. Probably off volunteering somewhere. This is one amazing lady. Pogo and I are wanting to take her to a couple of our favorite yarn and craft stores. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
