A quiet day today. A few errands to do in Belleville and then home to do some painting. Well, not me. Chuck is giving the family room a final coat of paint after painting the crown moulding yesterday.
I managed to catch the male Redwing Blackbird feeding a sunflower seed to his baby. I love the blur of his wings.
Chippy was there too cramming peanuts into his mouth. I don't think he could fit another one in.
The squirrels have discovered the small birdbath on the back deck.
This is our cat Sam drinking from it at our old house. She loved to come out on the deck in the morning and always made a beeline for the birdbath to have a drink. Yes, she was a little on the chunky side! This photo was taken last summer about one month before she died. We still miss her so much.
After the squirrel had a drink he then proceeded to dig in the flower pot. If you look closely you can see all the dirt on his head. He got shooed out of there very quickly!
The temperature is finally starting to come down outside with some rain possible over the next few days. It is a holiday weekend here this weekend. We don't have anything exciting planned. The traffic is usually pretty crazy on the highways so we try not to travel on holiday weekends.
