Shower me with your love.

Well, when we have a shower! Here is where it will be eventually. There was a small problem with fitting the base in but with much consultations we finally decided how it would go.
 Look who came over for a visit last night. Oreo. Look how long the grass is! With all the heat and humidity who wants to spend an hour pushing a lawnmower around. With the cooler temps this week it will get done.
 Anyway she was in desperate need of a cuddle so I accommodated her.
 Very blurry but I wanted to show you how silly she looked. She was sitting beside me on the deck step with her tongue hanging out. What a goof.
 I put out some peanuts later on and this squirrel sat right on the deck rail and ate a couple.
 Richard is a wonderful worker. This is how clean he leaves the bathroom each night.
 Outside worksite. We are fortunate that it has not rained for a few days.
 With the cooler temperatures there is more activity at the feeders.
 I have noticed the red winged blackbirds are gone. First to come in the spring and first to leave in the fall.
I was reading up on cardinals too and learned the male and female only fly around together when they are mating. Otherwise they are solitary. I didn't know that but it explains why I haven't seen the male and female together lately.

The tilers are coming tomorrow to start tiling the shower. I am looking forward to seeing how that looks.  As always I will keep you updated.

Take care and have a nice evening.

  1. Richard IS very tidy! I wonder if he's that neat in his own home. :-)

    Oreo is a sweetie, and I bet she appreciates the "tv" too (i.e. all the birds and squirrels).

    I didn't realize the blackbirds were gone, though. I've seen (and heard) more geese lately, as they like to stop over in the park down off John Counter.Seems like they were just heading north.

    Take care!

    1. The inside of his van looked none too tidy so I imagine they are told to clean up well after themselves.
      Oreo does love to sit in our yard and watch all the birds and squirrels. I have seen her doing it a number of times.
      Sigh...I am seeing lots of geese too Kim. I love Fall but live with someone who does not as it is a lead up to winter.
      Talk to you in a couple of hours.

    1. We are very happy with all the workmen that have come so far.
      The mourning dove photo was just pure luck. I did not realize I got it with its wings spread out until I downloaded the photos.
