Origami Radish ~ Crazy LBB ~ Caviar Cream Cheese Dip

Good 57º, very cloudy, morning.

Just to make a point, if you are going to be gone and don't need the aggravation of a ton of emails, just let me know and I'll take you off my daily drivel list until you want back on.

Interesting day yesterday. Rain on and off all day long. July? Are you kidding me? I took this picture about a quarter to five in the afternoon. I had a sweatshirt on. July? Sweatshirt? Sigh...  Different, honey.

I had promised Claire I'd get some petitions signed and back to her yesterday. They are for a couple of members of the Rogue River school board they want recalled and on the ballot in November. So, did that. In the process went to Patty and Cliff's to install their AOL on their laptop they use at the coast. Success. Had stopped at PJ and Dave's earlier. Got signatures there and from PatC who had stopped by. Then Maggie got nutty and took off for the area down by the road. I was worried and went after her. Well, as it turned out there was a dead "something" down there and it got on her radar. Dave said it's a possum .... You decide....


Ok Ok Ok.... I put this on here for a reason. I rarely (just from a very few pals) get 'comments' on my blog. I know it's read, but I do put a little effort into it and would like to hear what more of my readers think. So, Mr. Possum or whatever he is, ought to generate comments! I did get my a** chewed for my lemon/poppy seed cake because I used Canola oil. I also got told how "wonderful and loved" Barbara Stanwyck was, even though I couldn't stand watching her movies! So you see, it's generally something that touches people, pisses them off, or they feel a need to educate me that gets the comments. Knock yourselves out with this one kids!!! LOL

I came home and the 'guys' were hanging out in the back....

Claire and her daughter Lizzie came to pick up the petitions. Lizzie had made me an origami radish....

Now, how cool is that! Thank you Lizzie!

Poured a wine, chatted on the phone with a couple of friends, and watched the hummers on the porch....

There is this LBB (little brown birdie) that has taken up residence on the perch on the blue birds house. The blue birds have babies in there but this guy thinks the babies are his. There have been confrontations...The momma came to feed the babies and LBB was inside the nest!

She got scared and flew away...
So, for now, LBB sits on the perch. Don't know what will happen if the babies don't get fed. (Don't write me and tell me. I get it!)

He's back there this morning! Must have a nut loose. Poor baby birdies.

And right outside the door is that lavender plant. It's "buzzing" with bunches of yellow bees....

And it smells wonderful!
