Katie and I are out of the park for the required six days out of every 20; I was planning to go into Santa Fe and do some shopping and overnighting in the many places available to overnight there. We stopped in Las Vegas, NM to do laundry and other errands and might just stay here for the six days.
The weather has been pretty rainy lately - but we've also had cooler weather which is nice.
There's not much happening to post, so I'm putting in some photos taken during the last couple of weeks.
Katie snuggled in with her toys:
Jeanne sent Annie, Roxi and me a link to let us know they were on sale, and I jumped on it. Midwest Black E-Coat Exercise Pen w/o door. The regular price is $80.49 for this exercise pen, and the current sale price is $28.79, free 2-day shipping available if you are an Amazon Prime member:
eight panels - 2 feet x 2 feet square; I think it looks really nice and it's the perfect size for Katie. The ex-pen, folded up, fits nicely behind my driver seat, so storage is not a problem. They come in all sizes and with or without a door - this one at this price is without. If you've been thinking about getting an exercise pen for your dog - now's the time!
Remember Flat Stanley, the large frog we saw on our walks? Well, I FINALLY saw a real, live frog. I think it's the first one I've seen in three years of traveling. Here he is - Not Flat Stanley:
Here are a few more recent hummingbird photos - I've loved taking their pictures and just can't seem to just sit and enjoy them - I have to grab the camera. You have no idea how many photos I've taken, and neither do I - LOL.
This is the first time I've seen a Calliope Hummingbird - with his red streaked gorget, he's a beautiful bird. He's also our smallest hummingbird, from my SILBEY FIELD GUIDE TO BIRDS of Western North America, "tiny and short tailed with relatively short, thin bill. Male has distinctive streaked rosy gorget and white stripe across cheek."
The little Calliope Hummers are sure recognizable! Here are some of my other favorites:
WELCOME to our newest Follower, Steven! It doesn't look like Steve has a blog, so I can't point you to it, but Steve, if you do blog, please send me a link and I'll pass it on. Thank you for following along with me and Katie, we sure appreciate it! Welcome Aboard!
From me and Katie, have a great Friday, everyone! :)
PS - THANK YOU! to all our Followers and readers who are purchasing Amazon.com items through our links. It's the first site I check in the morning, and it makes my day to see a new item on my "ordered" list. Remember, although we do get a list of items ordered, we have no idea who orders what - your purchases are totally private - and our small percentage of your sale costs you nothing. Sure is wonderful for us, though! :)
