Birds, Squirrels, a Cat, and Some Rice

Day 12 - We woke up a little late; it was perhaps 6:30. As we nap during the heat of the afternoon, this does not seem early. It was already light as sunrise was exactly six o'clock today.

During breakfast time, Jay's elder sister puts out the food for the birds and animals. I was able to snap a few pictures. Many people consider my Nikon P900 as excellent for birding. However, I've never been one to try capturing any sort of wildlife. I've never thought that closeups were that special. I can see now that getting a great shot is satisfying. Here are some things which arrived at the bird feeder this morning.

Mango Woodpecker

Hey, Nice Attire!

Soft Bread

Female Markings

Stretching

And directly below all this activity was this fellow. He was too tired from last night's revelry to be too interested.

Sigh.  Cat Pictures!

At around 10 o'clock we started using the PickMe app for a bit of nearby shopping. Jay's sisters wanted to go to Kandy Fashion in Nugegoda. It is a rather posh, 5-storey store with mostly clothing. They had a few bags when leaving. Then, we took another car to a close ARPICO Supercenter. They are an old name which started as primarily hardware but now sell just about everything except clothing. This time there were even more bags. So, I selected a slightly larger car when returning to the house.

That meant we were home at lunch time but decided to order in. It was a Full Moon Poya Day in the Buddhist calendar and a holiday for many businesses. I was able to fire up the PickMe app for the final time of the day to order rice and curry packages. We didn't know the restaurant which came up in the app but the two fish and two chicken and rice containers were pretty good. A motorcycle guy came with our food in about twenty minutes. I have my credit card in the app and it was seemlessly charged a mere CA $7.70 in total for all four lunches. Delivery was included but we gave the guy CA $0.37 as a tip.

Lunch Delivered to the Door for Under US $1.50.
