Chilly Days & Through My Kitchen Window


The temps have  cooled right down and it is quite chilly at night and in the mornings .  This morning we had to turn the furnace on low to get the chill out of the house !

Speaking of chilly I made Chilli last night for supper in my slow cooker and it was Yummy !

There is a story to this Chilli making . As I was preparing the ingredient's for the chilli I was being watched , not by the cat or dog  but buy a little Hummer outside my kitchen window .

SEPTEMBER 2014 (1 of 16)

He was sitting there on his feeder looking and listening to be clang and bang around in the kitchen , I was keeping an eye on him the entire time making sure he stays put so I can get my camera and take photos when I was done . Sure enough he did stay put  and I got these photos through my kitchen window . He would pop down to his feeder then pop back up to sit and watch me again , he saw I had my camera taking his photos and I think he was striking a few poses for me lol !

What a fat little hummer. Don't you just love them? Looks like you have lots of goodies in your chili!

That feeling of fall is in the air, chili would be perfect to enjoy here today--Yours really looks delicious!

Our little hummer's are still here too. The three of them have been fighting over the feeder, and are looking a little plump as yours is. They have a long trip, so they need their fuel, don't they?

We haven't had the heat on at my place as of yet, but it's just a matter of time.

That chili looks delicious--wish I could have a bowl of it right now! Great photo of the hummingbird with the spiderweb!

The woodstove got lit this morning and I cooked breakfast on it! I lit it again when the sun set. The cold and damp was just too much.

Actually I am making a turkey today, and you just inspired me to make some chili with the leftovers. The weather is getting that we begin craving the comfort foods.

Nice of that guy or gal to pose for you.

We succumbed and put the furnace on last night -- mostly so we wouldn't be freezing this morning when we got up.

You caught wonderful pictures of these delicate little creatures .. I saw one hovering in the garden on Saturday.
That was amazing since we don't have many ... the Goldfinches are mad for their seed though .. we have two feeders on the go and I counted over 20 this morning between feeders and so many on the ground I have never seen them do that in the Fall ... so are we going to have a really awful winter then ? BIG sigh !
Joy : )
