I noticed for the first time today that the birds are beginning their yearly migration. The bird feeders are busy with some little jewels just getting fat for a trip further north, and others are arriving hungry. There are just a few now but more will come. Tomorrow morning I have to fill all the feeders that are scattered around the yard. I wish these squirrels would stay on their side of the fence and leave the bird's feeders alone. There's corn and pecans for them across the fence. You may make note that all I can find to gripe about is where the squirrels eat. Wouldn't you say that's a bit petty?
I did a bit of shopping today for the Friday night sleepover. A new sleeping bag for each boy is something I'm going to surprise them with. I also found some swords (they are 'into' pirates right now) that you pour bubble "stuff" in. When you wave the sword bubbles come out. It's an outside toy but they should enjoy waving their swords and challenging the make belief bad guy. I bought some new sidewalk chalk. We'll try our luck at hop-scotch. I have a couple of new DVDs for after dark and new pajamas to wear while we watch them and eat popcorn and chips. Saturday morning we'll all be worn out. The time is fast coming when these 'dates' will no longer be something the boys want to do. I'm making hay while the sun shines, so to speak. I'm no saint - I enjoy this as much as the boys do.
Harry went to bed early. I think I'll head that way now. A wish for your perfect tomorrow and a hasty "Goodnight" takes me outta here.
Couldn't sleep - still awake at midnight. I changed the header picture to one Ricky sent me of the dessert bloom. That's Cucamonga Peak (7,200 ft el.) in San Bernardino County, Ca, in the background. There's been a lot of rain in the dessert that is bringing an impressive dessert bloom this year.
Back to bed. Hope I can sleep now.
