A Look At My Week …

** There happen to be two “one click” photos in this post.  I doubt if I will have two in one post very often.  I hope it’s not annoying.  I apologize if it is! **

I’ve been having a very hectic week, trying to get a lot of website-related things rolling “behind the scenes.”

I’d like to ask a favor …

If I ever even mention the idea of beginning another website, or doing a website redesign –

One of you has to promise to STOP me, okay?


As I work on getting lots of odds and ends tied up,

I thought I’d share a few glimpses of life in Orange County this week.

Our local newspaper has trouble finding “news” so we get headlines like this:

And they call this news?

It made me laugh out loud when I saw it.

I took a few beach photos of my own, of course.

Summer is probably my least favorite time at local beaches.  It’s a challenge to avoid the crowds.  I really prefer the beach in the fall when the tourists are gone and the kids are back in school.

My small little container gardens are doing really well.

So well, in fact, our resident blue jays have been eating a lot (but not all!) of my tomatoes.


On the positive side, now I know what type of bird is responsible for eating the budding lemons/limes/oranges off my trees also.

Although, I’m not quite sure what a person does about Blue Jay Bandits?

If any of you have suggestions, I’d love to hear them.

(I’m more concerned about losing fruit from the citrus trees than I am about the tomatoes.)

Needless to say, this year I have more hummingbird photos than a person could ever use.

(Hummingbirds seem to be very popular on social media forums like Facebook/Flickr/Instagram/Google +, so I keep posting photos of them there.)

I even ordered an 8×12 print for myself …

I rarely order prints which is a little ironic, I suppose.

I had a difficult time deciding which hummingbird photo I wanted for my very own, but I picked this one:

My print arrived yesterday.

Now I need to see about getting it framed.  (You know, sometime in the next few years …!)

I’ve already been asked,

So for those of you who have inquisitive minds …

The above photo is of a male Anna’s Hummingbird (the one with the bright pink/magenta neck) and a male Rufous Hummingbird getting in a tiff over their territorial rights.

I guess there’s stress no matter what part of the universe you inhabit.
