Hummingbirds in The Rain


Early this morning, from the back window, grazing at the edge of the lawn, I saw two doe and two fawns. I am sitting here on the front porch and I am not going to think about the box I am unpacking in the front room, I’ve opened it and spread everything out on the table, thrown away as much as possible .

Now I am at the stage where I stare at it in bafflement and occasionally walk by and move something then do more baffled starring but I am not going to think about any of that; instead I am going to drink a cup of hot coca with marshmallows and listen to the sound of falling rain and hummingbird wings as a dozen or so fly overhead maneuvering for a spot at the feeder.

I have a copy of the The Time Traveler's Wife that I’ve just started. When I put it down I was on page 55 and Henry is naked waiting in the meadow. I think this must be where he meets Clare so I wish you a good evening and I am going to join Henry and Clare.

Hi Harmony,
This is a captivating photo of a hummingbird. I came to your blog via Melba's list of people who will blog True Balance together.

This is my first visit to your blog, so I'm trying to figure out what the boxes are a part of. Moving? Simplifying?

anyway, hot chocolate as an antidote seems quite sensible. I look forward to reading more of your lovely blog and to blogging with you on Melba's project.

All my flowers have finished. So, no hummy's for awhile.

If that box is difficult to deal with, I think you have found the perfect antidotes in chocolate, deer, hummingbirds, and the Time-Traveller's Wife. Great book! Enjoy.

Lovely photo of a hummingbird in flight, Harmony and so typical of these little jewels. Boxes... I still have boxes to sort out, and we have been living in the little blue house for some time now.

What a lovely but melancholy post. I feel and see where you are and although a little sad, you have an enchanted life. Thank you for sharing this.
