Warm Weather

After nearly two weeks of below average weather, we have finally gotten out of that pattern. It's been in the 60's during the day and not below the 40's at night. 

We got over 2 inches of rain over the week-end so everything is pretty soggy, but it's sunny out and 65 degrees so we can stand it.

Al is in Tampa (again) and I am trying to so some housecleaning and de-cluttering.

Al put a lot of white millet out for the birds before he left.  We put some on a ground feeder by the bedroom windows so that we can get a close view of the birds.  It seems to attract Doves, Cardinals, and Chipping Sparrows.  I was looking at them a little while ago and saw 2 little mice eating alongside the birds.  Oh lovely, now we're attracting mice!  One of them was coming out of a little hole in the dirt.  We'd seen these holes around but wasn't sure what was making them.   I guess as long as they stay out of the house and especially out of the motor home, I can tolerate them.  As long as they don't do any damage.  They were actually kind of cute..little bitty guys.
