Mellow Sunday

We just kicked back and relaxed today – very nice! Jim’s sister came over this evening and we grilled mesquite lime chicken, while she surprised us with hubby’s favorite side dish, German potato salad…it was his mom’s old recipe and is quite delicious!

I took a variety of photos today that I thought I would share – the first is our yellow lab Molly in our back yard:


Molly always looks so happy and content when she’s out back, and she never wants to come in.

The next photo is a nail Jim removed when he was taking down the wall we demo’d this weekend…it’s huge – I told him it looked like a railroad spike!

Here’s the clump of palm trees Jim spend a lot of time cleaning up this weekend – he removed a lot of the miscellaneous growth that was springing up around the base, and removed the dead and broken fronds.

The last photo is a bird I saw this evening perched on a tree branch across the creek. I took a bunch of quick shots, the flash going off on each one, which REALLY annoyed this guy – he eventually swooped away screeching. According to our field guide, I think it’s a white ibis.
