Another Lazy Summer Day

I have been "busy" all day watching the goings-on of the birds outside. It's so much fun to have my computer and my sewing machine right here at the window where I can look outside and see what's happening. :) Here's a blue jay enjoying some fresh sunflower seeds.

Here's another one up in the angel trumpet "tree".

Then I went to the back door and there were wrens - new ones without all their feathers yet - hopping around and having a wonderful time on the patio. Sorry, I couldn't get a shot of them. They're FAST!
Then along came this grackle to enjoy a little seed and water.

Poopers came running to see what he was doing, and the bird flew.

Leaving Poopers to quickly grab all the seed he had spilled on the ground. Poopers is my hippie chicken. She is a Polish chicken with the feather hat mostly obscuring her vision. She can see directly in front of and below her line of vision, which makes it really easy to pick her up, but leaves her blissfully oblivious to most of what goes on in the world.
I have my latest quilt all pinned up and ready to start quilting.

I'm just getting myself psyched up to start. :)
Meanwhile, Miss Chloe is everywhere, doing whatever she pleases,
and overseeing everything that is going on!
Hope your day is going well!
Hugs and kisses,

Watching the birds in their bath is one of my favorite pastimes. Your chicken Poopers made me smile.
