I went inside and dug out the hummingbird feeder and hung it on the balcony. It holds 3 1/2 cups of water. I add about 1 cup of sugar and stir until it’s dissolved. You don’t need to add any food coloring. I have to lean out over the rail to hang it on the hook that my husband put into the eaves. To make it easier to attach it to the hook, he put a wire with a loop at the end, on the top of the feeder. Now, I can watch the hummingbirds from my office window.
I have to update you on my no-shampoo experiment. My daughter-in-law just had a new baby and I went down to stay with the other children while this baby was born. I forgot to take some baking soda with me to use on my hair. Not wanting to go out to the kitchen and rummage around looking for some, I just used the shampoo already in the guest shower. I hadn’t used shampoo on my hair for two weeks. The first thing that I noticed was that my hair was full of tangles when I combed it after washing. Baking soda wash leaves your hair soft and tangle free. Secondly, after drying my hair with the blow dryer, my hair was full of static! Yes, I live in a dry climate and we have static here, but I didn’t realize how much less static my hair had while washing with baking soda until I washed it again with shampoo! The difference was quite noticeable. I have been converted. I do not plan to use shampoo on my hair again, unless circumstances force me to. I urge you to give it a try for a week.
