Hello there?


This lady definitely likes to pose for the camera!

Fun at the Feeder


The house finches and the sparrows seem to be having great fun together. I'm glad my new squirrel-proof feeder has room for all of them!

My camera has arrived at the Nikon repair facility. Let's hope they are quick! My husband is taking me to Hawaii at the end of the month and it would be a shame if I didn't have my good camera.

Here's wishing everyone a good Friday and a wonderful weekend! There won't be any golfing for me this weekend - I'll be inside where it's warm!

Looking Up!


There must have been another bird coming in for a snack or something else really interesting in the sky.


PS: Joyeuse fete des rois !

Caught in the Act!


Bird pictures are more interesting than my dining room table at least! This beautiful lady was caught in the act of eating a sunflower seed. There's nothing wrong with that.

Home Sweet Home

I am really running low on pictures now! This is a look at our dining table when it was brand new a year ago. We bought it with our Christmas money from 2008. I also got one of those orchids to re-bloom that year - they're still both flower-less this year. If anyone has a tip to get them to bloom again, please let me know.

New Year's Golf


My husband and I played our traditional round of golf on New Year's Day. We didn't finish all 18 holes as it was colder than it looks. But we did have fun and it's always good to get outside.

It's back to the daily grind tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to going back to work per se, but I will be happy to have some structure to my days.
