A Little Bird and a Giveaway Announced

I have had my hummingbird feeders up for a few weeks now and while they aren't as busy as they were last fall, I have noticed the levels going down. I have even noticed a few coming up for a quick drink too.

The past few days I have noticed a few coming right up to my dining room window... just hovering as to peek inside. Tuesday, one actually sat down on a branch and posed for me! I have rarely seen them just sitting. I love this picture.

We finally got our garden area tilled about two weeks ago but have yet to get anything in it.


It has been doing nothing but raining off and on since then. We don't have anything in it yet because we have to wait for pay day but hopefully next week I will get a few tomato plants. I also want to do some zucchini and cucumbers. Would love to do corn too. Maybe some broccoli and who knows.... any suggestions?

Ready for a few phrases today?

Hai contanti?

eye cohn-than-tee

Do you have any cash?

Respinto.

rays-peen-toe

Declined.

Perche' queste cose capitano sempre a me?

payr-kay kwes-tay coh-say cah-pee-than-oh saym-pray ah may

Why do these things always happen to me?

In other news.... *laughing* There is a fantastic giveaway for a $40 gift certificate from CSN Stores over at Prim Pals. They have 200+ stores and a wide variety of great items.


You don't have to become a member but if you do... you would have three chances to win!

Well I am off to do a few errands and hopefully a few crafty things. It looks like rain all weekend again so it will be a good time to be creative.


Take Care and Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Debbie

  2. I am SO jealous!!! I wish we could get a garden in this year, but we just moved and still have to have a parcel cleared in order to plant...

    I can't wait to have a proper garden next year. 8-)

  3. Hi Debbie,
    I haven't seen any hummers at my feeders yet. We usually have a little male that sits on our fence near the feeder and waits for other hummingbirds to come in for a drink...and then he chases them away. It's really fun to watch him...sometime he will puff up and act big & bad. Too silly and cute!!
    I think that the rain you have had is heading our way. They are calling for rain for the next three days.
    Have a great weekend.

  5. Debbie - that photo of that hummingbird is so sweet! I'm hoping to attract them to our cabin this year - wish me luck! How about corn casserole...?
