Female Oriole

Soup & Sammy

Those are udon noodles in this one. They were dry noodles – they were also available both refrigerated and frozen. We are gradually expanding our store visits after being fully vaccinated, we picked them up at the International Grocery after eschewing visits there because of the narrow aisles. I was hoping to buy some of my favorite fried chili oil but they only had small jars of another brand. I might have bought some but it is cheaper to by my fave at Amazon. We did buy that baby bok choy at the greengrocer near there

Picnicking Birds

The rose-breasted grosbeaks are here, for a while. They’re just passing through. Mrs J spotted an oriole at the jelly stuffed orange station this morning. I am hoping for a shot at it but they never tarry long. When we first moved out here a pair of them nested in a walnut tree close to the house. It was way pre-digital SLRs. They didn’t return.
