Peeping Out

I've blocked myself, from writing that is. Put up a big old red stop sign, I did.


I decided to read our bookcase full of children's and young adult books that are mostly a combination of my collection and the Husband's mom's, who was a school librarian. Oohlala, n'cest pas? I've read six or seven middle school stories and two teen novels. The ones I read when I was a kid I still like.  One of these days, I might just write a post about that.

The last several days has been nice, not so hot, not so cool, not so windy, and not so hazy, hurrah! So. I've been tootling around in the back yard, cleaning, trimming, planting, propagating, painting, and so forth and so on. It's good for my soul and body. 

Last Saturday, we had a surprise visitor, for us and her. A sweet hummingbird flew into our house and proceeded to make her way up to our bedroom. It took about an hour, more or less, for her to tire out so that we could finally catch her and release her back into the yard. We've seen her twice since then. Once, she brought her mate as if it say "That's them."

Dear friends, thank you very much for your visits. I'm sorry I haven't been by. I hope to strike out of my cave very soon.  Onward and upward!



  1. Hello,

    Gardening is good for the soul. I have never had a hummingbird try to enter the house. What a story, I am glad it could be rescued and taken outside safely. Take care, have a happy day!

  2. It sounds like you've been very busy away from the blog. How sweet that you got a hummingbird in your house, I hope she continues to come back and visit :)

  3. I’m glad you read your old books which must have transported you back to when you were a happy kid. If you need to garden and read, the. Just do this as we are here no matter,, I am goi g to look up the totem animal Hummingbird in my book by Ted Andres about animal speak.l cool, them Hummingbird reminds you to fiNd joy in what you do.. restores health and balance. Watch your sugar levels. It may tell you to redecorate and find joy in your home. You can accomplish the impossible.

  4. Glad you're getting out into the garden. It's been a bit of time, hasn't it? Best to keep busy if you can.

  5. YOU are such a complete treasure.

    oooh, a hummingbird right inside your home? Everything is so welcoming . . it needed a look-see. makes me happy to think of it.

    Sending Love,

  6. Retreating from the madness that is the outside world these days is a very sane, and wonderful, thing to do ... congratulations. :D

  7. I'm seeing lots of birds these last 3 days (yesterday a bald eagle circling the Safeway parking lot-a vulture I could have understood).

  8. Su-sieeemac - glad to see a post from you, my friend. I can only imagine it would be immensely difficult to catch a hummingbird. Well done! Enjoy the rest of your week,

  9. You ARE the Story . . Your Yard is a canvas . . . A Living Canvas . . . Your art speaks to all of us . . . Oh yeah, YOU Are The Story.
    love & love,
    (finding my way . . just like you)
