Seems I am forever trying to catch up. We house/pet sit for a month. Although we had fun, it sure cuts into my schedule. So here are a few pics from two weeks ago. I have a lot of pictures to download yet from my camera. Downloading must burn calories, right?
Here is Mama and her Ducklings before we brought our baby Ducks home. They are 3 weeks old in this picture. They are so much bigger now.
Well some bad news. The Cockatiel I thought was Ghost, is actually Corky.
Our neighbors had someone else take care of their birds, and water their veggie garden early this summer. When our neighbors got back, their veggie garden had died. It was never water. They had more Veggies growing then what we did. Plus, my friend told me either Ghost died, or somehow got out of the cage, because when they got back, Ghost was gone. Poor Ghost. Corky does like it when I whistle to her, so now I have fun with Corky. The birds looked exactly alike so it was hard for me to tell. Looks like we will be taking care of their house etc. from now on, because we "did a good job". That was a nice compliment! Here's Corky.
Dennis did a great job on the Duck pen. It has a fiber glass top, but if we have a wet winter, or snow, we can cover it with a tarp.
This is the Duck's house. It is on the east side of the house, so the Ducks will be protected from the wind. 90% of the time the wind blows in from the west. The nice thing about these types of Ducks is they can tolerate the cold.
Henley the Hero was checking out the Duck pen.
A Fence Lizard was on the wall by the pen taking a nap.
One of our white roses.
A Sparrow was checking me out.
Starling not far from the Sparrow.
Geranium in our front yard.
I have a team, "Calling All Hounds", and recently added a new leader, MARITIMER3. She has started a September Challenge "10 minutes a day". If you feel you don't have a lot of time for exercise, especially ST, then please join our group. If you don't have a Hound, or even a dog, don't sweat it. We are all here for a purpose, and that is to encourage each other to keep pushing. That's what this team is about. Encouragement.
Have a good Tuesday!
