abstract butterfly

busy hummingbee

I've been working very diligently this week. Tomorrow afternoon I fly to the Deep South. Thursday evening I fly home. In between, I'll work on this and that. I got a lot done today, and I got a lot of hobby things done tonight. Yet I envy my wife, who saw two hummingbirds in our back yard Monday.

When we lived in southern CA, we had year-round resident hummingbirds. Now we have them as visitors a few times in June and September. But we do have scissortail flycatchers, which nobody in CA gets to see.
It's silly to miss what you don't have--I'd rather revel in what I do have.
