Our long weekend is coming to an end. It was very relaxing. After the big rain on Friday, the temperatures stayed pleasant for the next three days and we had a chance to enjoy the yard.
When I opened the blinds in the dining room Saturday morning, I saw this Cardinal dad feeding his chick. We've been making sure that there's plenty of bird seed on the porch and deck for all the flying visitors that we've been getting.
Our most recent visitor has decided to make this her new home, at least temporarily. Here she is resting outside the dining room window where we can watch her as we have breakfast.
When we take the dogs into the back yard, she follows us. She seems interested in all the canine activity in the yard while keeping a safe distance. She sits on the deck rail for hours watching the neighborhood.
When she gets tired, she snuggles into a corner of the window and has a little nap. She has been a delight to have in the yard and we hope she decides to stay with us.
We played ball a lot this weekend. It's Sky's favorite game and most of the others enjoy chasing whatever we throw for them.
Tsar says you won't catch him chasing any ball. That's for those silly water dogs. He's much too dignified for that stuff.
All the girls got their hair trimmed around their faces and on their tails this weekend. Now you can see Norma jean's eyes.
Bailey needed a trim, too. She wiggled and squirmed all the while I was trimming her. We need to work on teaching that girl some patience.
Saturday Rob built a fire in the chiminea. It was nice to sit on the swing and watch the flames. We needed some marshmallows.
I'm pleased that I have finally started knitting again. For weeks I couldn't seem to get into it, but here are the stacking cats I finished for my niece for Christmas.
They were fun to make and I'm pleased with the way they turned out. Now I'm starting my raffle project. I'll let you see it when it's done.
