April 15, 2014

9am
It's Tax Day!  Mine are done ... just impatiently waiting for my refund so I can pay my PG&E bill before it is turned off ... might try to get one of those tax refund loans ... but, that's like a loan shark ... we'll see ...

Ezra (and his brother Bruno) is 3 today!

Noon
I'm making carrot chips! It is not turning out like the recipe - they didn't get crispy ..., so I'm having to adapt it a bit using the dehydrator ...
These were really good!
Ezra is being very handsome and playful today.
Nikky loves her kitty.
Love the white ruff around his neck that has appeared. It's not his undercoat, he has shed his excess from winter. He's just turning color! First cat (of MANY) that I've ever had do this.
Love those green Ezra Standish-eyes. Handsome boy.
And, look at the baby doves!!
So cute!! And, looking out at the world!

1:30pm
Getting the hummingbird feeders up, finally! This is the recipe I use: The Perfect Hummingbird Food Recipe
Hopefully, they will come back. I had 3 regulars the past few years, but I stopped putting any out last Fall. I got tired of fighting the ants that always drank it all! I may need to get 'ant motes' to hang above them. What a great idea. And, plant mint under it! I have mint! I'll replant some this weekend.
Blooming aloe!
