SmugMug Daily Link
First let me start off by wishing Johnny a happy 8th birthday today! We celebrated last night because today is the first day of the boys' new school year (year round), and I felt it would be too hectic to celebrate today. He's into Pokemon and likes Wall-E and received a few gifts on those themes. I made organic brownies, and we each had just one. It was the first sweet in over 3 months. Interesting how the kids accepted that it was a real treat instead of just one more sweet in the long list of sweets. Progress! I had trouble uploading the brownie/singing happy birthday video. I'll share tomorrow. Here's one picture of him with his brownie.
My daily is a dragonfly picture that I took Saturday. I cost me 6 mosquito bites, so I had to post it. I've never seen this variety before, and after spending 30 minutes trying to ID it, I still don't have one. I posted to BugGuide. If I hear back I'll update this text. OK, it's a Blue-Faced Meadowhawk.
The hummers are back in full force at my house. The light is always so low in my yard:-( I snapped this picture just out the kitchen window anyway. Darn stick in the way... Female rebuy throated as far as I know.
