Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday.
It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a theme challenge for us:
On a personal note:
Today was another paddling pool day... It was in the 90s and fairly humid. It was gorgeous sitting under the deck in the screened in porch - in the shade. There was a slight breeze and it was wonderful. Eventually it got too hot, and I had to come in and make some cards :-)
We have a pair of cat birds nesting in the garden. One of them - either the male or the female has obviously dodged a predator as he/she has no tail!!! That doesn't stop it bathing in our bird bath, flying to get food, or catching insects. I'm hoping the tail grows back before the migration south. They are wonderful little birds and I love their mewing call.
I'm glad to say our Orioles are still with us and I watched them feeding babies at the feeder this afternoon. Mommy Oriole was trying to teach the young one how to feed itself! It was gorgeous to watch. In the meantime, I get to see the streaks of gorgeous orange and black of the males:
I'll be back tomorrow with another card and some more photos. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
