Hummingbird Festival comes to our little town in mid-September every year: it starts next Thursday. We've been worrying a little whether it would be timed well this year, since the birds hadn't really begun flooding our feeders yet. As of this morning, I have no more worries. That little tolerable-front we had last night brought not only a trace of very welcome rain but a raft of hummers. This morning, for the first time in recent memory, the low is 71 degrees, although it was a grueling 87 last night at bedtime. Makes us want to get right out in the garden and catch up on some chores. So, because I don't have usher duty until next Sunday, I'm declaring a church hooky day.
