Hummingbirds

The hummingbirds are really enjoying the feeders.  We have this feeder at the old building and another one at the green swing.  I think hummers are so much fun to watch. 

Today, Hubby and I decided to put an outside faucet on the side of the new room.  When we built the new room we had to take the old outside faucet off.  Well, plumbing never seems to go as you think it will.  We run the pipe and got everything connected, turned the water back on and amazingly, no leaks.  Then we go outside, turn the faucet on and amazingly, no leaks.  Well, of course, we are patting ourselves on the back now thinking wow, that was easy.  Hubby turns the outside faucet off and guess what-it won’t turn off.  It was a brand new faucet so we’re not sure what was wrong with it.  Of course, we have no cut off valve in our collection of plumbing supplies so we have to shut the water off again, drive 30 minutes to the local hardware, get a cut off valve and a new outside faucet.   When we get home, he put the cut off valve on so we could turn the water back on.  He had to go look at a job possibility so the other faucet will have to wait.  He will have to take  the one that doesn’t work back out of the wall so he can put the other one in.  Hopefully this one will work. 

Well, that’s  our day.  Temperatures here today have been wonderful.  Low 80’s.  It is now almost 6:00 p.m. and the temperature is 75 degrees with a great breeze.  Thank you, Lord.  Tomorrow we will be going down to Jessica’s.  She has a doctors appointment.  We will be watching the boys and then going over to David’s mom’s to pick some apples.  Remember last year, she gave us those pink apples.  Well, they are ready to pick.  They make such pretty applesauce. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.

We had a really nice weekend here in Floyd.  Dave, Jess and the boys came up to celebrate Hubby’s birthday.  Jess and I went to a yard sale in town.  Later that evening they took us all out to eat at a local Mexican restuarant.  We had a great time.   On Sunday we went on a picnic down the parkway.  This is a picture we took from one of the lookouts.

Today, we went down to watch the boys while Jess went to her doctors appointment.  All is going well with her and the baby.  Thank you, Lord.  She will find out next month if she is having a girl or a boy.   Daniel said they don’t want any “gwirls” there.    Jess told him “but what about Mommy.”  Daniel said “You’re not a “gwirl” , you’re Mommy.  We are just praying for a healthy baby-boy or girl. 

We have been getting lots of rain here.  We have had a little sun this evening but mostly overcast.  We still do not have our plants in the garden yet.  It has just been too wet.  We don’t have the brush pile burned or the lower garden tilled.  I still have lots of flower seeds to get in the ground too.   Oh well, all in God’s time. 

Enjoy your evening and God bless.
