blackhat

(no subject)

Silly girl shopped online all morning after sleeping in. Bird feeder selected and ordered. Seltzer makers to reduce disposable plastic selected and ordered. Glorious mixer syrups collection (West Indies Orange Bitters, Falernum, Blue Curacao, Curacao-Triple Sec, Orgeat Almond Syrup, and Sloe Gin) selected and ordered. (I passed on a bitters collection, despite the attraction of Aztec Chocolate and Celery bitters, also passed on the floral waters despite rose water, lavender water....)

I have to say, the world of decadence introduced to me by the Amazon cocktail mixer offerings is incredibly tempting. There's an Italian wild cherry pronounced miles superior to maraschinos. So tempting.

I'm happy to see Leaky the Towhee back this morning. I found legs, bits of feathers and some entrails disgorged new a soundly sleeping Edward cat this morning, presumably the indigestible bits of some early morning dining elsewhere. The legs seem about right for towhee legs. I'm hoping the new feeder will be more attractive to such birds and will reduce the attraction of spilt seed.

Why is the humming bird poking at the suet?

Off to see about some cold press water color paper for Christine and cat food.
