Pair #18

Fresh off the needles...or maybe not so fresh?

I don't know why the dogs had to sniff my new socks. My feet were not stinky. I promise.

And since I already had my feet propped up, I stayed outside just a bit longer to take in the Hummingbird Show. (Click the next two for bigger.)

At times it was dramatic.



And at other times, comical.



The best entertainment is sometimes right in your own backyard!

Get outside this weekend and enjoy what God has created (even if it's raining). You'll be glad you did.

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
--Psalm 46:10

  11. You know how I love the socks. I finally have the second skein so I can finish my second sock. I have a set on the needles now so will finish those first. I have so many skeins of sock yarn and figure I should keep going while I am on a roll.

    My parents used to feed the humming birds at Lake Whitney. It sure was a show when we would sit on their back porch. Who needed TV?

  12. I love how the socks turned out. I actually purchased the same sock yarn when you posted it earlier. I can hardly wait to make a pair out of it. Love the beach, wish I was as close to it as I use to be.

  13. I think you have our hummingbirds! LOL Your first posts about them showing up was about 1 week after ours all disappeared. Well.. we actually had to take in our feeders because there were 2 young slackers, who thought they would just stay where the feeding was good, not realzing if they didn't head out, they would freeze this winter. We have the same feeder even.
