It’s been a while since I’ve shared random thoughts, so today seems a good day for that:
1.) Last Sunday, we celebrated Marshall’s birthday as we usually do: at The Olde Chickahominy House restaurant in Williamsburg. If you’re ever in the area, the food is great, and the staff is so friendly.
2.) An x-rated performance by one of our resident
bird seed thieves squirrels. What a view from our kitchen window….
3.) One of this year’s babies, checking out the buffet. The love-hate relationship continues. I love how beautiful they are (just look at that sweet face), but hate that they destroy some of my plants. (The purple bloom in the foreground is a butterfly bush, which they ignore.)
4.) Speaking of deer, I’ve put netting over my gladioli to protect them. It’s worked up to a point, but, recently, when I checked, I saw they had pulled the netting off one of the plants and eaten the buds. I have managed to salvage a few blooms. Glads are among my favorite plants, and apparently, the deer feel the same way.
5.) And last, but not least, Motor Man had surgery yesterday for a hernia that’s been causing him pain for the past three months. It was outpatient, and he’s doing very well. We’re thankful that’s behind him, and he can begin the recovery. Oh, and I found a little something for him in the hospital gift shop. He named him “Herbie”.
Enjoy the weekend!
