Not much going on, but for some reason I seem to have no free time to sit and do fun things. Still working on the kitchen, all of the end finishes seem to take a long time – I guess it’s that way with construction, doing the core work goes quickly but then to make it pretty it takes a lot of details and time at the end. We have the stainless island top in, and picked out the countertop (quartz from DuPont that looks like marble) and installer, so that will be coming soon. B already picked out the tile for the backsplash (mix of small glass, marble and tile strips) and picked up that, waiting in the garage to install after the countertop. Just have the flooring to select; we need a floating floor because of cracks in the concrete slab, thinking of some type of cork to be softer underfoot than tile.
We have three hummingbird feeders scattered around the house. They take a cup of liquid, and this time of year I’m filling them up every three or four days. Besides the local hummers that are here year ‘round we have some migrating ones passing through and there are a lot of nesting ones. I don’t think the first round of hummer babies are out yet, but the nesting finches out front have their first batch of babies already flying around. But the feeders also attract other birds, there is a pair of pretty yellow ones that we first saw last summer and are back again. These guys must have long tongues, as they do spend a bit of time on the feeder and keep coming back. So they are getting something.
