Writing these I Like posts has been eye opening to some extent. It's made me face facts about myself that I wouldn't have admitted, or even known, before. So here it goes...my confession...I'm a bird nerd! I realized it this week while I spent ages waiting for the hummingbird to reappear at our feeder, also enlisting the watchful eye of my husband, just so I could include it in this post. Every week seems to have some sort of bird in it! I astonish myself, but there you have it. Here's our current customer at the feeder. Later in the spring when the Rufous hummingbirds return from their winter vacay in Mexico, there will be a few mating pairs hanging out around our watering hole. It is my belief that they nest over in the cedar tree that you can vaguely see in the background of this photo. Such beautiful and amazing birds. Did you know they need to eat every 30 minutes? Yup, I'm a bird nerd.
I like aprons. Pinnies as my mum calls them. I can never have too many. I love the feminine aspect of them and all the pretty fabrics they come in (although my husband has one too, so they aren't just for women!) They are useful for many things. I have a practical one that I use for harvesting cherries, as it has a big pocket that I can fill with fruit, leaving my hands free for picking. The poodles graciously agreed to model these four favorite aprons for you, in exchange for a few treats. They are easy to please and make very good clothing models!
I took a few other photos in which Teddy looked very bored, but overall they were very patient!
Speaking of poodles. I like poodles in swings. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then I urge you to click that link and watch the short video! It is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. Only a poodle!
Poodle Pick of the WeekThat just leaves the Poodle Pick of the Week, which is.....eating snow! Our week has consisted of snow showers and sun breaks, rinse and repeat. It is gorgeous when the sun comes out. The snow and sun combined makes everything especially bright! Anyway, while taking the poodles outside and pondering what their pick should be this week, I look over to see this (snow mustached poodle)...
And then I look over and see this girl licking her lips....
..and the answer is clear! Eating snow for the win this week!
Happy Thursday everyone!
