Only 7PM, but showered and in my PJ's relaxing and listening to the classic 1959 album by Jazz Trumpeter, the great, Miles Davis- "Kind of Blue." For goofing off and trout fishing more than half the day yesterday, I managed to complete my weekend goals none-the-less. Finished filling all but one of the three new perennial beds with top soil, fixed the tail lights on my utility trailer, and scraped and painted the front porch and back patio, in addtion to putting out the patio furniture. In checking the hummingbird migration, I see our Ruby Throated species in nearing here and now in central Wisconsin. Put out their window feeder to be ready for them. While I was painting today, a number of white throated sparrows visited the feeder as is usual only in the spring. Their lovely yellow eye patch and friendly demeanor was enjoyed. They let me get within two feet of them and acted not the least be disturbed. Much like my resident Chickadees who will land on my shoulder while filling the feeders. I guess I have become a trusted part of their avian world here at Rauhallinen Farm (and certainly their chief cook and bottle washer year around).
