I took me all Summer to get this photo of the hummingbird. I have some where they are in flight, but I think this is my favorite. I’d try to sneak out and take their photo and they were so defensive at first, I’d never catch them. Lately , they are stocking up for their big migration. They are much easier to photograph. It was just a matter of me standing in the right spot and being patient. ….
I’m also glad they showed off during my talking blog the other day! They bring us so much joy . From the first sighting and all summer long, they are just the cutest little flying things.
I have 3 projects on the needles. You know this is odd for me. I have the shawl I showed you yesterday. I have ripped out my TOAST fingerless and started them anew tonight. Now I know they will have a good fit. I consider the other start a gauge swatch. Lol. Finally, I have the orange skirt that will never be a skirt. I think it is turning into a lil orange blanket . Maybe I can put a pumpkin on it, in purl bumps. OR maybe I will put a pumpkin pocket on it. I like that thought.
We paddle boarded again today. The winds were strong but we made it to our point. Once we turned around , like yesterday, we felt like we were on sailboats flying back to shore. It will be hard to put those boards away. We have had a CoVID summer , like everyone, but our weather has been so so good. Sunny, 70s 80s and an occasional 90. Very little rain. Tons of opportunities to paddle, to hike the lake, to cycle and to garden. Windows open most nights. The crickets are still chirping.
Thanks for hanging in there with me all Summer. You are all so great. It means the world to me to hear you enjoy this lil corner of my life. Now, To read about yours!
