Good morning. Tis sunny with temps in the seventies. Simply lovely! Temps will rise soon to the mid to upper eighties, but for now it is really nice. I did have a doctor appointment this morning, but I called and rescheduled for next week. My breathing just was not good enough to travel too early.
Hopefully, in a little while, I can go out to the post office, bank and market. I do have these errands to do and I'm needing a few groceries. I would love to have the groceries delivered but the last time I did that, they sent me milk that was expired in two days. That's not acceptable.
The mail just came, and in it was an envelope full of beautiful greeting cards from the St. Joseph's Indian School. They send me other things too, but their cards are just beautiful. This is one of my favorite charities. These children deserve a safe, happy life.
Today I have photos of some of the birds feasting in my Mulberry tree. It was not easy getting these photos because the birds are mostly hidden in all the leaves, and they move so quickly. But I was patient and managed to get a few good shots. I've cropped and lightened the photos to make them easier to see, because I took them from a distance. Thanks to the awesome zoom on my little PowerShot camera.
Most of the birds were Robins, but there was one gray bird. I'm not sure if it is a gray Catbird or a female Robin. There were other birds, but these were the ones I was able to get photos of. In the fourth photo down, note the berry in this birdie's mouth. These are happy birds, folks!
A few days ago, there was a gorgeous orange bird perched way up high on a tree branch here in the yard, but I did not have my camera with me. I've only seen this bird here this one time. I sure wish it would come back. I would love to get a photo of it.
Pretty soon I need to get dressed and try to head out to do my errands. Normally I would take Pogo with me, but just in case I make it to the market, I have to leave him at home. If I have a good day later this week, I'll take Pogo out shopping.
That's my news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
