Daily Pics #236.

Good morning everyone and Happy Sunday! It’s cool and cloudy this morning and very quiet outside. There is a lot of white-throated sparrows around now, along with the purple finches. There is only a couple goldfinches left now, I guess the others have headed south already. There is quite a few chickadees around now too but they are having trouble getting to the feeders for food because of all the purple finches. I need to put up a feeder just for them, but will have to make it first, and make sure the squirrel can’t get at it. No gulls around this morning, they seem to be getting later all the time. Sir Henry didn’t even show up yesterday which is odd. The chipmunks are having fun picking up peanuts this morning without Jasper here. He must be sleeping late this morning, but I’m sure he will show up soon. Hmm, what do you know, I think Jasper has arrived.

So much for a quiet morning for the chipmunks. Jasper arrived as Pocket was getting his peanuts. The chase was on! Around the flower pots and Chester showed up and joined the chase behind Jasper. They all went through the peanut box, first Pocket, then Jasper, then Chester. Well, the first two went right through, Pocket went over the edge of the deck with Jasper right behind him. Chester stayed behind, picked up his 3 peanuts and went out the one door while Jasper came in the other door. Jasper never saw him. Then Lady Pearl and mate showed up for their breakfast. Lady Pearl came down first as usual and her mate came after she left, even with me standing out there, but I had to turn away from the feeder before he would come down. Guess he’s getting a bit braver.

Well, for our flower pics for today, we have a single variety of marigold, instead of the usual double varieties. That’s the pic at the top. Then we have these flowers above, but I have no idea of the name for them. But they have used them a lot in the town flower displays this year. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

      • Did I mention skipping lunch? Okay, I do sometimes, just don’t feel like eating at times. On the plus side I have lost 2lbs this past week! I need to lose 3 to 5lbs more, then I will be at my ideal weight. I don’t skip meals very often though, but it does happen.πŸ€ͺ But snacks I have stopped completely!😁 Almost.πŸ˜³πŸ™„

      • Keeping up with workouts, pretty hard to control the mouth 😜 today I had done snacks, mostly sweets πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ hoping that will not add any weight, I can’t believe I’m having such craving these days πŸ˜³πŸ™„πŸ§ i should be careful πŸ˜‹πŸ˜œ and you, don’t skip your food, don’t ever, thats not good, but you can break your food intake like you can have the same quantity of foods in 5 times a day πŸ˜‰maybe that’s a good idea β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜‰πŸ€”I think ,

      • That’s exactly what my doctor said,πŸ™„ eat smaller amounts but eat 5 times a day, so I still get my same food.πŸ™‚ Hard to get into that habit of eating so many times,πŸ€” though I admit it does work good.πŸ˜€ I want sweets too!😁😸 That’s it, I’ll bake some cupcakes later!πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜Ί

      • 😍You love sweets too 😍😁 I love sweets ☺️ but my doctor seriously warned me last time to avoid sweets as much as I can πŸ™„ pretty tough 🧐 Your doctor said it right, it will be too easy to eat 5 times a day and you’ll not feel hungry or full for whole day. which is good 😎 try it 😁

      • But if I eat five times a day I’ll turn into a balloon!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ή Yes, I know, eat less each time, not easy but I will give it a try.πŸ€”πŸ˜€πŸ˜Ί
