Better Than Any Movie

Watching what goes on outside my slider has always been a favorite pastime when I'm up in the kitchen or DR.  All I have to do is look at Katniss and watch her body language, and I can tell there is something "out there that's better than any movie"on TV.

First there's one of my favorite visitors...the darn rabbits.  As you can one of the adults has become very brazen.  I'm waiting for it to come up to the slider and confront Katniss.  When she spots "Harry" she no longer bristles her tail or twitches the tip** incessantly.  Not only do we have adults that made an awesome den underneath my triangle of hydrangeas, the babies have been running amok too!  


Then this week, not only was the lone turkey I called a "looser" last year, it brought it's family to visit the base of the bird feeders.  Just what I need more losers who cannot find their way out of the yard!!

My Summer Fling

Like many others, it seems that I loose weight once Spring and Summer arrive.  Of course, the reasons are simple.  I rarely bake in the warmer months (unless I have too) which means the carb collection in my freezer is pretty low.  Although checking it earlier today, I did notice a strawberry rhubarb pie and one loaf of zucchini bread that I'm sure the Pres will want if I tell him they are in there.  So, between eating less junk food resulting in fewer carbs and the fact that I am also more active because kayaking and a few hikes get thrown into the mix along with my regular gym and Tai Chi, the Winter weight melts off. 

Meanwhile, it's been so hot and humid that those heavy desserts just aren't "calling my name."  However, a few weeks ago, I was craving something sweet and decided to continue my "Summer fling" ever since I discovered it.  A delicious and satisfying dessert for these hot, humid Summer evenings, it quenches my sweet tooth, yet isn't high in calories.  Yes, it has sugar but what I've been doing is eating only half of the container resulting in 7 g sugar.  I will admit though that one night I devoured the whole thing!!

The Four B's










BLOOMS...I had a few so far this year...poppies for the first time EVER and I LOVED them; my Strawberry Bushes were loaded sending the smell of fresh strawberries throughout "my space"; and now the Black-Eyed Susans and Echinacea are absolutely spellbinding.


The next "B" which I cannot forget about are the BIRDS...(what would I do without them?)...the Eastern Bluebirds, The Rose Breasted Grosbeaks and the Eastern Phoebes...I adore them all...:)



And now, with the heat and so many sunny days, we have the BUGS, and BUTTERFLIES...(although I could probably have done without that giant beetle clinging to one of my grasses while I was watering!)
