Day 201 - Monday

I looked out my window today and saw this odd bird on the wire behind my house!!
Does anyone know what this is?
There were two of them and I have never seen anything like it!!
It's neck is actually long, but tucked in.
sometimes it would stretch it's neck out but I couldn't get a picture of it.
I am so curious!!!!

How long do you think I need to keep it out? yikes!

We were supposed to head down to Tucson today.
I am not up to it,
so here are more pictures of my parents cabin

I love how my mom has planted in old stumps

I have never been a bird watcher, but I so enjoyed it up here!

I had planned to make this dinner for my parents and some friends....
...that didn't happen but I was determined to make it for my parents before I left.
It was awesome!

Day 191 - Friday

Since I didn't leave the cabin AT ALL,
I thought I would show you some of it's beauty

This is looking out the back window from the kitchen table

This is the back of the cabin.

mom and dad have worked hard over the years on the cabin
I love how they have placed things in the woods or
hung things from the trees that add beauty but look so natural

Day 190 - Thursday

Even though I am sick, I am trying to keep up with my pictures!

If you have to be sick though....this is the place to be!
I spent most of the day in this hammock (I was tired of the bed)

Day 189 - Wednesday

Started feeling bad last night.
I thought it was just allergies, but today I went down so fast.

Day 180 - Monday

I spent the whole day today on the phone with Comcast.
They had promised me one price on a package
and then reneged.

After all afternoon and a lot of frustration..
..I won.

I was so frustrated by the end of the day I never took a picture
my washer breaking and my A/C not working properly didn't help either!
It was a tough day.
