Rainy Friday

What a beautiful day!  It is rainy and humid and smells just like a Louisiana swamp . . . yesterday too.  The hummingbirds are in a feeding frenzy since I discovered how to make my own hummingbird juice.  The sugar to water mixture I have tried in the past was rejected, but I discovered they have a really BIG sweet tooth!  I am now mixing 4 cups water with one and a quarter cup surgar.  That mixture will spoil faster, but from the feeding frenzy on my side patio I don't think that will be a problem.  Ha!  I love to watch them argue for territory and then they settle down around the feeder like good friends having a drink together at the bar.  And then one disrupts the group and a bar brawl breaks out.  It reminds me of a good John Wayne western!  I attempted to take a pic to share, but those little birds are far too fast for my shutter finger.  A video may be a better idea.

I'm still working on gaining a clearer understanding on how all of this technology works.  My brain is not as sharp as it could be so I spend time relearning the technology frequently.  I don't get frustrated . . . I just keep plugging away at this with determination.  Thanks for your patience!

Getting some sleep last night was a familiar challenge, so maybe stopping the 50mg Benadryl was not the best idea.  I will be seeing a sleep specialist on August 1st so it will be good to possibly get some new ideas on how to manage sleep.  Does anyone have thoughts and expertise on getting a good night's sleep??
