Another busy weekend although I was feeling like crap for most of the week. I must have picked up some sort of bug I suppose, headache, nausea, and general malaise. As I promised a neighbour that I would help out with her yard sale on Saturday, I was hoping that I would feel better by then and luckily I was. The sale was suppose to start at 10:00am but as she has great stuff in her yard sales, people were starting to line up at 9:00am. It was decided to let them in and people kept coming and coming. As I was the one taking the money, the morning went very quickly. I had to laugh after it was over as I complain about Roger bringing home stuff from these things and here I was, lugging home stuff....a long wicker planter, storage box with drawers, a huge vase, a wonderful picture of a pig (love pigs), binoculars, and an assortment of other small stuff. Honestly, I must be mad.

Then Saturday night I had invited people here for a curry dinner. All went well and it was such a beautiful evening that we ate outside on the deck. Too much food and wine and the late hour getting to bed made yesterday kind of tired for me. Couldn't seem to get kick started. It poured rain all day so just lazed around really. Beautiful day today though. I see a scattered leaf has changed colour and some of the flowers are showing signs of their time being over for this year.

The Nuthatches have their young with them now. I was up on the ladder getting a feeder down to re-fill and there was one just a couple of inches from my hand. I could have put a finger out and tickled it's bum, lol. They are so friendly and don't mind being around me at all.

I took this short video, only 30 seconds long, of a male woodpecker feeding it's young. Too bad that the young one went behind the tree trunk and then they flew off. Still, the bit I got is cute.

Now, st, would I give you a virus, lol. Lovely pictures on that blog. I don't understand why you can't view the videos. You're the only one I know of that can't see them.
