This is Fat Nelly!!! She is one of the many resident hummingbirds currently residing at the Hydrangea Queen's house. I house sat for her last week and got to watch Nelly run the other hummingbirds away from the feeders. I'm curious how that fat little bird is going to fly to Mexico!?!?
I tried to get as many shots of the hummingbirds as I could, but some are a little camera shy
Some hang out at the feeders while Nelly is away
These shots were taken through the window. There are two feeders out front, and I kept the blinds up so I could try and get a few good shots.
Nelly never strays to far from those feeders!
I took a few shots of her garden while I was out stalking hummingbirds. The weather here has been quite enjoyable the past week. It is still warm but the humidity is low so it feels cool.
I enjoyed sitting on the back porch, drinking coffee and watching the birds. I also managed to layout a little while also.
I've been really busy the past few weeks. I had a few jobs out for bid. I am renovating a casino, and I have been pretty tied up with that. It has been a lot of fun though.
I went on a cruise for Labor Day. It was my first cruise. I had the pleasure of cruising in a tropical storm in 20 foot seas. Everyone should do that once!!!! The first two days were rough....or so we thought. We cruised to Cozumel. It was beautiful. We didn't go on any excursions, we just shopped. I bought a set of talevera dishes (I will have to share them with ya'll), and a few other souvenirs. I also brought back some of that good vanilla flavoring!!!
It was pretty on Sunday while we were sailing and they actually filled the pool up. Most days it was too bad and they kept the pool drained. Sunday night it got really rough! The captain informed us then that we weren't going to make it into port on time for Monday! That was not what we wanted to hear!! We were ready to get off that boat! Monday morning he told us that we were going to have to go back out to sea because it was so rough. We finally made it back in on Tuesday around lunch. Boy was I glad to be back! I never got sea sick thank goodness.
I went straight from the cruise terminal to the Hydrangea Queen's to house sit. I will post some pictures of my cruise boat and some of Cozumel I took. I didn't take a lot of pictures because it wasn't that great of weather. I will dig some up for ya'll. But I have to show ya'll my dishes. I just loved them. They were worth lugging back from Mexico!
