2011 Project 365 – Week Thirty
This week features the return of the weekly squirrel, and our star attractions, the suet feeder and cement pond.
Sunday, July 17th
Why here’s the weekly squirrel now! ON the suet feeder. Silly boy.
More visitors to the suet feeder.

I had my first pre-op visit to the hospital. I toured my room (it’s huge! Anyone want to come for a party on Tuesday the 9th?), gave more blood & talked about all the stuff I have to remember to do.
I would dearly love to have a clothesline, but with all the bird activity in our back yard that seems to be not a good idea. Sometimes I compromise – the swing is far enough away from the feeders that it feels somewhat safe.
After I took the towel picture I toured the yard.

Here is the State of the Bug. Sitting in my car at work thawing out those Ice Cube Toes.
Apparently we have to have a weekly lily picture too.
Our friend C gave us this bowl that she made in pottery class. I thought it was the perfect place to put my last apple.
Our cypress vines have finally started blooming. They’re a lot later this year than last year. I’ve been waiting impatiently because we don’t have a hummingbird feeder – this is how we get the little buggers to come into our yard.

For some reason the license plate on this Mercedes offended me. I have a real problem with a theology that indicates that if you’re poor you’re not being faithful to God. I’m pretty sure that’s not what Jesus was all about. Of course, this could just be sour grapes on my part because I don’t know a thing about the person driving the car. I just made up a whole story about them based on their license plate! And of course I don't want to imply that if you're successful you're not a good Christian. I'm shutting up now :)

This is a popular vacation destination in our neck of the woods. Filled up twice a day (or more) this week by Dr. M and his faithful sidekick The Bug. Well, I filled it up once. I don't know why I find the cowbird to be so lovely - that sleek brown head just draws me in.

This was supposed to be the Tax Time Pig, but someone was coming up behind me so I just stuck the camera out of the window & clicked. Unsuccessfully as you can see. So just imagine a concrete pig with a ginormous Winnie-the-Pooh on its back.
Dr. M was more successful getting pictures of the suet feeder – this is the guy we were trying to attract with the food.
And here's a pompous cardinal. I don't know why, but I just think that they look like they think they're better than everyone else. And why not? Pretty bird!

We might wish for a woodpecker, but these guys are vastly entertaining – the feeder just goes around and around while they take off & land on it. I wonder how they don’t get seasick!
I think our Texas lilies are going to bloom pretty soon!
