I am reading this delightful book, a sequel to Chocolat,
the story revolves around making chocolates, and I am salivating!
Mouth watering, totally suggestive, it had me running off to the store to appease my cravings!
...and for later
I was planning on my leftover easy peasy pot roast, smashed potatoes, and peas as a shepherds pie...
Simple fare so I can indulge in reading...I am hooked on this book!
One of our resident Flickers
they love the suet and hang upside down on the feeder...
(the wee house to the top right)
The Downy Woodpecker frequents the same suet feeder but I have not captured that on film yet.
We have resident Anna's hummingbirds and now the transient Rufous ones have flown north so we are entertained by the territorial postulations at the feeder!
This hangs beside our family room window which is very close to the kitchen.
I have a yard full of birds...and am always serenaded by birdsong...
robins, house sparrows, bush tits, kinglets, wrens, chickadees, thrushes, crows, towhees.
The Coopers Hawk comes by for a meal every once in awhile and he is very large.
The Smaller Merlins fly in swiftly and
catch an unsuspecting bird for dinner.
I am off back to the cobblestone streets of Montmartre to check in on what is happening to Vianne and Anouk.
I am hoping to finish this before our guests arrive!
Late News Flash...
he wants to come over and watch the Hockey game
and hopes that we can chill and order in
Daughter, her man and lovely DIL....
even better than good...how great is that?
My family wants to come and spend time with us tonight...any plans I had have flown, my family are IT!
My planned dinner is in the freezer ready for another day.
I can read anytime....
I cherish our times together.
DIL looks amazing...
I feel so grateful!
FYI it's 5 weeks until Baby is due!
