Grilled Chile-Lime Corn on the Cob Recipe and Little Something Sweet . . .

Sometimes it’s the most simple, littliest things that can make me happy.

Last week we walked out our front door, just like we had a million times before — only this time we noticed that we had house guests.   The best, sweetest, most delightful house guests possible — and they can stay as long as they’d like.  In fact, I’ll be sad when it’s time for them to go.

Almost too little to notice, there was a hummingbird nest on the tree below the steps.  A small collection of twigs held an even smaller hummingbird.  With us only about three feet away, this sweet bird didn’t move for a good thirty seconds.  And that’s when we saw the most precious, most beautiful site — her two, lima-bean-sized baby birds. With beaks the size of a grain of rice, these teeny-tiny birds very slowly moved up and down with strong beating hearts.
