Sunday Snapshot ... Random Sunday Stuff

Sunday Stuff #1 
Spend the morning at an auction. 

Auction online gallery showed a couple of items that I really wanted to have ... one for myself, and one for a gift.  I was outbid on a couple of things, but I did bring home this awesome box of random, mixed silverplate.  (not going to show you the gift I bought ... don't want to spoil the surprise for the lucky recipient.)

36 pieces of flatware, 3 small dishes, and 8 napkin rings.

Sunday Stuff #2
How are the baby Wrens doing?

So far, so good.  All five of Mr. and Mrs. Wren's babies are fine ... totally fuzzy and adorable.  You can see from the photo above that they are beginning to open their eyes.  I'm amazed at how fast these little critters grow!

I kept trying to get a photo with all of the beaks open at once, but this was the best I could do.

Sunday Stuff #3
Hummingbird maintenance.

We have had a LOT more hummingbirds this year than usual.  The little guys are sucking down the quart of nectar in my feeder every two days.  Sometimes, it feels like a full time job to make sugar water and keep the feeder filled.  We have had as many as three hummers at a time sitting and drinking at the feeder, and up to three more buzzing in and around trying to get a turn at the buffet.  (In theory, all six of them could drink at once, but they're WAY too territorial to every do that.)

Tonight, we are having dinner with our daughter and her family.  It's been a very nice, very relaxing day.

I hope all of you have had a good Sunday, too!


  1. Nice box of random silverplate and your baby wrens are looking quite mouthy. LOL!

  2. When I lived in the mountains, I had a feeder with lots of hummers. They don't come out here on the hot eastern plains much. The babies sure can open wide!♥♫

  3. Love your box of auction goodies! And those baby wrens are so cute. Our hummers are drinking a ton too, and we had 5 at the feeder at one time after a heavy rain, normally we only have 1 or 2 at a time.

    I hope you have a great week!


  4. Your little wrens really are cute as are your hummingbirds! I've not seen very many this year, I guess they must be at your place! :-)

  5. GREAT box of awesomeness! I love your baby birds, too...and NOW I know where all MY hummingbirds are-they didn't show up here this year- I guess they stopped at your place and stayed there. Great Sunday shots, Connie- xo Diana

  6. Shoot! You should have told me you would be there...I would have come just to visit you!

  7. Those are the best kind of days! And I envy your hummingbird bounty. They don't use my feeders and I know I've done the right things. Just not happening.

  8. Ah, that's what happened to our hummers!; we've seen fewer than normal around here.

  9. Haha I have a reputation for buying mixed boxes of silver plate too :)
