In a comment, someone wrote jokingly (maybe) “You two need your heads examined!” I think she may be right.This evening Vince said “I believe we have more to take care of here than we had in Texas. No. Not true. We had 60 fruit trees, a lot of chickens and a huge garden. But, we seem to be adding daily to our resonsibility list.
This morning Vince asked if I wanted to run to Walmart with him really quickly to get a couple of things he needed, then come home and have a late breakfast. I had a couple of things I needed to get done and by the time we left for Walmart, it was almost 10 a.m. As we were walking out to the car, Vince said “I feel like a Babe’s hamburger.” We had milk and a few other cold things in the car so we ran home and dropped them off and went back to Babe’s for a burger.
They have the best burgers!
On the way home we stopped by Atwoods because I needed shepherd’s hooks for my hummingbird feeders so we got two of the tall ones. Vince put one in the ground but when he put the other one in, it broke, so he had to go back to Atwoods to return it. That was trip #3 to town.
He came home and started looking at hooks for hummingbird feeders. I told him I’d like to have some that hook onto the deck so he searched for those and found some at Lowe’s. The Carthage Lowe’s only had three but the Joplin Lowe’s had 7 so we went back to town (trip #4).
From the bottom, it looks like someone is fishing over the edge of a pier!
Addie will love the hot air balloon feeder. I also have another one like the one in the middle and it’s at the front, outside the dining room window.
This is my favorite! It’s solar and it will light up at night (or it’s supposed to . . we’ll see tonight though there hasn’t been much sun this afternoon).
If it lights up, I’ll take a picture and share it.
The cutest thing of all . .
It’s a hummingbird swing!! I’m sure Addie is going to try to turn it into a doll swing. We’ll see what the hummingbirds think about it!
All the bird feeders have “juice” in them. I didn’t put a lot juice in them til the hummingbirds find them. I hope the lady at our house in Texas is filling the feeders. We left them all there but I don’t know if Vince told her how many hummingbirds we always have.
A friend here in MO just down the road has a dozen or more feeders and there are always lots of little hummers at her house so I’m hopeful we’ll have a few.
