The stance of this Chickadee says it all, definitely on the lookout. Only she knows for what though.
I just read some interesting facts about Starlings and thought I'd share. I was always curious about why they they came together in huge groups and flying in perfect unison. Apparently it has to do with them becoming larger than the predator they were alerted to by just even one Starling and then all come together to ward off the bad guy. So amazing!
So late Saturday night I took quite a gymnastic fall and unfortunately didn't land on my feet, but arms. The emergency doctor tells me it's a tear to the right rotator cuff. Of course, I happen to be right-handed. I don't usually blog about personal things like this. I'd rather weather it out, but this might take sometime so thought I'd mention it.
In the meantime, after I get the ok from doctor (IF I can actually get into an Orthopedic dr that is) and start physical therapy, I'm going to try to become more ambidextrous, lol. So so appreciate my limbs. One never knows how this could end... It's almost a for sure guarantee for looser work right.
It is so fun to watch little ones at the beach for the first time. Shock and awe and giggling and twirling (after the initial shock of getting tossed over that is). Mom's are ever on the watch lest they become waterlogged. Often seen are somersaults by the older ones... Still giggling and twirling and lots of time purposefully being 'rolled' by the gentle waves. Yay for waves!
Lemons, lemons, lemons. Always have them in the fridge. Just smelling them transports with energy and a most amazing aroma that awakens the senses.
Sometimes we get lucky and are pleasantly bestowed some from friends. It's our goal to definitely turn our front porch with abundant sunshine and just the right amount of resting shade into a sort of citrus orchard of sorts. I found some pots online that self-water as I don't want to have to water them manually or set-up a drip system.
Three single huge pots, one with lemons, limes and oranges. We keep talking about it anyway. In the meantime, happy to have our friends supply us with their leftovers.
