Well folks I am here to tell you that I am one more happy camper with the purchase of my bird feeder. I tried to keep it in the direct sun yesterday so it would fully charge, but times it would get in the shade fore I could move it, but it needed 8 hours of sun to fully charge the batteries.
It was not totally dark yet yesterday when I happened to look out the window when I was walking through the kitchen and there was three of the brightest little amber lights that lite up the inside of the feeder and even the rim that the little birds sit on. This was maybe 5:30 or so yesterday afternoon.
It has become now an every night occurance of not being able to sleep as was the case last night. I finally went to bed at midnight and the lights were still glowing yet a bit dimmer than before. Today I have it where it will get more direct sun light all day. It was so peaceful to look at it. As I told grammie, it looked like a little biddy UFO as the solar lights are on the rim of the feeder which is UFO shaped. :) After today and getting fully charged, I can just leave it be- hanging on the porch beside my wind chimes and make them little birds happy!
I have already been for a walk with Roxy this morning and it is cold outside, but the cold air felt so good. It is nice to get away from Woody once in a while. We now have a new neighbor in the house beside us. She has been here a week . It has been empty for a good while. I have spoken to this lady on several occasions and of course I have no trouble talking to nobody nowhere, but getting her to talk back is bout like pulling teeth. I dunno if she is as sad as she appears to be, or don't like me. Anyway, we have lived here for 35 years and only 3 different families have lived in that house during that time. All three families were special. We loved them all. Many of my neighbors have been here longer than we have. Some only 10 to 15 years, but we are one big family on this street. We have been blessed with good neighbors.
I gotta few things I gotta do today, but I wanted to check in and wish all of you good folks a good weekend and try to stay warm unless you lucky enough to live where it is warm. Take good care and stay safe...
