We’ve been enjoying a variety of hummingbirds at our feeders this season.
We call this one, Rusty. I think it’s a Rufous
Besides the hummingbirds and all the other variety of birds in our yard we had some more visits from mama deer and 2 fawns.
After being under the weather the past week I’m good as new. Thank you for your kind thoughts! We had a quiet week and most of the weekend staying home. We decided to not attend church on Sunday morning just in case there were any lingering germs to share. We did go to the trail early on Sunday to continue our walking conditioning.
Here are some photos from the trail on Sunday morning we only passed one other human on the trail.
I only had my phone with me so this zoomed photo of the eagle isn’t too clear. This is a regular perch for this eagle.
This is getting to the last stretch before we are back at the parking area. We listened to a sermon from Second Corinthians on the New Covenant on this walk.
We both have appointments for eye exams this week so we’ll get in some Spokane shopping adventures while there. Dear avoided being in the house with me and my germs last week and worked in his shop on the mounting of the snow plow for his truck. He wants it ready for this coming winter and it involved a lot of thinking, welding and building of mounts, etc. A few tweaks and it should be good to go once we get snow.
His next project is our Master Bath. That won’t start till October. We’ll try to buy the tile for that project while we are in Spokane this week.
What’s new in your corner?
The Hummers continue to entertain us. We have put out a second feeder that has perches that the hummers can rest on.
This is a week off for Wednesday Hodgepodge.
We were able to meet our local kids’ new puppy on Tuesday as they wanted to introduce her to their old dog Reyna on neutral ground before bringing the puppy into their home which has always been Reyna’s domain. Things will be busy as they train and enjoy a new puppy. Her name is Ember. I’ll let them share a photo first on Social Media before I do here. Sweet and mellow.
Vacation Bible School is in full swing and things went well with registration and making sure all the kids had their name bands on their wrists. I look forward to another evening helping out and doing my small part to help things go smoothly.
I was happy that these Pelicans were resting instead of flying so I could get my photos.
Back here in N.E. Washington State we have entered a dry warm cycle which means I’ll need to start watering the planters.
Dear has started painting the exterior of our home. When it’s complete I’ll share some before and after photos. Enjoy the last weekend in June!
I’m traveling today so Truth for Today will resume next Thursday.
We hung a Hummingbird feeder up on our patio structure and it has been delightful to watch the hummingbirds come and go.
I’ll be scarce on the internets for the next several days. I’m hoping to document what I’ve been up to soon.
Since Thursday is when I post Truth for Today I will share this paragraph from Drawing Near, by John MacArthur.
Be Quick to Hear
…”You should be quick to hear the Word because it provides nourishment for your spiritual life and is your weapon against all spiritual adversaries. It is the means by which you are strengthened and equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) It delivers you from trials and temptations and engages you in communion with the living God. The Word should be your most welcome friend…”
We don’t remember them with white on the tail feathers like this.
This young one was just improving it’s flying skills, just fresh from the nest.
If you squint you can see the little one on the branch to the left. It flew up into the trees in our front yard.
It’s been fun to watch the festivities of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee! We recorded it and are slowly making our way through.
In other news we have had to turn from heat to air conditioning the last couple of days and the Columbine is blooming beautifully!
Hope your first weekend in June is a good one.
This is a new to us bird that is a mystery. Maybe some of my blog friends who know birds can enlighten us on what kind of bird this is. We call it our white bird.
We arrived safely at our kids’ home on the westside of the Cascades on Friday. It rained on us for all but 10 miles of our 375 miles.
It’s always a treat to see hawks or eagles on our property. This Red-Tailed Hawk is a beauty.
Easter is coming and we are preparing for Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter. What are some of your traditions?
More of the squawking or chirping variety.
Whether they squawk, chirp or sing they are fun to watch, especially the swallows who are back in full company.
Bay Breasted Warbler
Watching the birds makes me realize how much our windows need a good Spring cleaning!
Happy 11th Anniversary to our daughter and son-in-law! God bless you with many more!
Looking forward to this weekend. Do you have plans on this Spring forward time change weekend?
