Telephoto Tuesday

Yesterday we spent cleaning son Rob’s rental side of his double bungalow.  I thought I wouldn’t be able to move today, but I actually feel pretty good!  And major bummer:  I forgot to take my camera, so you will just have to imagine a little two-bedroom place, nice and clean and fresh smelling!  He took us to Matt’s Bar for dinner and we had their famous Juicy Lucys.  Mm-mmm good!  Monday night, and it was packed.  Before we left, the line waiting for a table was well out the door, spilling out onto the sidewalk.  A VERY popular spot.

This red-winged blackbird thought he should get in on the finch seed buffet:

If he gets to be too big of a pest, I’ll just snip off that bit of a branch he is standing on.  The house finches (or maybe it’s just one) have been regulars this past week.

And I love it when the birds clean up after themselves.  This chipping sparrow was gleaning the leftovers that fall down into the river rock below:

Well, that’s it for now.  I’m going to head downstairs and finish the quilting on my Out of the Bag quilt.  I’ll post a photo later.  I was asked yesterday how I was quilting it.  I’m using a Golden Threads Panto, Cascade, by Keryn Emmerson. 

Have a terrific Tuesday!
