New Friends

I would like to introduce you to my new friends, This is Pearl and Henry. Pearl is on the left. They are Zebra finches, originally from Australia,, not these but their species.
They make the cutest little peeping noises, and sing beautiful little songs to me.

I love birds. All birds. And I love bird song.

I have since bought them a nest and nesting material and set their cage up really cute. They are busy making house. Who knows we may have babies!!!!

At any rate they are very entertaining to watch and pleasant to listen to. The house seems a bit more cheery now!!!!!!!

Sunday evening at our house......

The pictures downloaded in the wrong order ....This is actually how I ended my evening. I'm working on a couple of vintage kitchen towels. They are turning out really cute!

I took a little walk around the back yard, me and my camera, and found this little spider on the bougainvillea pot. She really is a smart one, as her web is spun in the path of an ant trail. Shes really quite pretty, her little butt stripes are more yellow.

Daddy has revived the bougainvillea plant quite nicely. Some things were over looked these last few months, and I'm glad we're getting on top of things again.

The pineapple mint is taking off, the spearmint is working hard to catch up.

My Italian herb garden is doing well The basil was feeding not only us, but until last night, an entire family of little green wigglies that are no more. I'd would like to say that I politely asked them to move their households on to other greenery, and they complied. but No.... It took me about 1/2 hour to sit and pick all the little buggers off.

Our tomatoes are not as plentiful as last year but , they are pretty little things.

And a handful is enough for a snack while waiting for dinner!!!

We have gotten about 7 or 8 peaches. The birds got quite a few. These were sweet and juicy.

Daddy BBQ'd ribs using hickory chips, and boy oh boy were they GOOD!!!!

As you can see...... Yummmmmmmmmmm!!!!

Baby.... It's HOT outside!!!!!

Oh.. the delight of an unopened container of Jelly Bellys. I Love them. Lets see there's watermelon and sweet juicy pear and banana and root beer and buttered popcorn. The list goes on and on. And then you can combine them to come up with your very own taste sensation!!!!!!!

And this Kirkland container is nothing short of HUGE!!!!!! 4 pounds of the delightful little flavor filled orbs..... AHHHHHH Do you have a favorite flavor!!! I'd love to hear.
Its so gol darn HOT right now. Its actually 104 degrees outside. Thank heavens for the AC. cause its a balmy 77 inside. I can think of no better way to wile away the day then working on my beautiful baby jacket. Stopping only now and then to pop a jelly in my mouth. The pictures are a little blurry but you can see its coming along really nicely.

This is the neckline and the petals actually face down. So I guess to get the right angle you need to either stand on you head or turn you monitor upside down. hahahah Do you love it, Carlye? I do. I love how it looks and how it feels, its so soft and I'm enjoying every stitch.

I finally got some Coleus. This isn't the best shot, it sorta washed out with the flash. Ill get better ones later. Stay cool and send me some of the jelly belly combos you do so I can try them too!!!!

Now... I know that looking into a pair of eyes like this is bound to make a person lose all resolve and give in to whatever the bearer of these eyes would like.... It's hard to say no to this... Especially when you really don't want to in the first place... hahahaha Carlye came to visit and to take care of me a short time following my surgery. Having a very small house with no real guest room we set up the "blow up" bed in the living room. Matt and Carlye don't mind, honest. The WEENS however, are usually ecstatic, as they presume this bed to be theirs as well. It all starts with the "eyes".......
Quickly followed by the "pleases" and the "I'm so cute ses" This is Buster. He's the lover boy who usually always gets his way with the ladies around here!!!!
Ahhhhhhh Yes!!!!!!!!!! Pure unadulterated BLISS!!!!!!! This is definitely worth all the wiggles and smiles and pleases to get here.

And because he's such a nice guy. He shares!!!!!

It's really cute when Matt is here and his true love is Bailey and I usually awaken to Carlye snuggling buster and Bailey wrapped in Matt's arms with Gus and the cats everywhere else. I missed seeing you here Matt!!!!!! It's not the same without you.............
Blessings , Sue
