Oh What Could It Be?

Started a new rug this evening....Bet your wondering what it is! There is a story behind it and it relates to my Great~Grandma. I'll share the story in a few days.

I sat out on the porch late this evening and enjoyed the hummers! They have such personality. Sometimes they get a bit hyper if I put too much sugar in the feeders.

I got this feeder in Texas over the weekend. It is handpainted and the proceeds went to help the homeless. I bought two of them they were so unique.

Mr. Cardinal would really like it if I would go on in he would like a evening snack before going back to his nest for the night.

I see the moon and the moon sees me, God Bless the Moon, God Bless Me! Got a good shot of the moon this evening.

I made pico again this evening to go with a sandwich. I LOVE pico and it's healthy for you so here is the recipe!

Diced roma tomato's
Diced onion
Diced jalepeno pepper (remove the seeds if you don't want it too hot)
Diced cilantro leaves and stems
Stir it all up
Add the juice from a fresh lime or two


Well Sloan and I played in the pool twice today. He is getting quite brave with trying to swim although I have a life vest swimsuit on him. He has always loved the water so I'm double locking doors to be on the safe side. Never can be too cautious with curious kids! Hope your staying cool and hey get out there and have some fun!

Happy Trails.....Ginger

All your pics look good Ginger. Love the look of that hand painted hummer feeder. It's gorgeous!! Hummers are just such cute little birds, any way you look at them. They make so much noise though, lol. Glad you are taking extra precautions with Sloan. You can never be too careful with kids and pools!!! Can't wait to hear your story too!

Great pics! Your great grandma story is sure to be interesting. :)

That pico looks mighty yummy! It would be awesome on some grilled chicken breasts!

Stay cool & enjoy the pool!

I could eat your pico with a spoon. It looks so yummy. I can't wait to see what your rug looks like.
I loved your pictures of the twilight.

Love your photos today. I is difficult to get a good shot of the moon, but you did it!
Your new rugs looks like the eyes of a frog maybe??

I adore hummingbirds. Thanks for the pico recipe. I feel like I'm eating so poorly with all the moving stuff we're doing. That looks easy to make. I look forward to seeing more of your rug!
