It’s been a mixed day…happy about the rain!  Perhaps the last rain till November–so I definitely appreciate it.

Happy about our new faucet! Our old one has been growling and protesting for almost a year now–it was decided to get a new one over the weekend when the full blast power was equal to a trickle–MADDENING I tell you!  Anyhoo, today we got this one and it is delightful.  Who knew that a faucet could bring so much joy?

Sad today because Dennis is on a business trip.  Of course we all miss him, but Frankie expresses his sadness most eloquently: he can barely lift his head.  Poor soul!

Happy because our oriole family has returned!  They have built their sling type nests in our giant birds-of-paradise trees for several years.  They are magnificent!

Hope your week is happy!  Let’s hear all about it!

    Wow!! The computergods are smiling on the Whitehouse today and I was able to visit your blog without the computer freezing up. Hooray!
    Love the pictures and the garden news. Your birds are very fancy. Glad they came back. I just put a load of Thistle Seed out and hope to get a return of the Finches.
    So happy you have a solution to allergies.
    Give Frankie a pet from me. Poor pup. He will cheer up when D returns.

    Wonderful bird photos! Orioles have been chasing around our yard, as well. And some sort of grossbeak, one we don’t see much here. No nests – they know to use the dog yards next door instead of our cat yard, ha ha!

    What beautiful Orioles! They are so flashy! And poor, poor Frankie. Kind of on the dramatic side, isn’t he? 🙂
