A one day weekend

When you only have a one day weekend you have to try and cram a whole lot in that one day. But you can also choose to just say forget it all and do nothing. Yesterday I did a little of both. I did my weekly shopping trip, came home and spent an hour or so cleaning and then the rest of the day I spent doing a little playing in the craft room and a little bit of nothing.

I also did a little bit of photo editing because I haven't done any in a very long time. Just one picture but it's flowers and it's for all my wonderful friends who stop by here.

Think of me while I'm slaving away today.

At the hardware store.

There's a little mom and pop type hardware store not too far from us and it's closer than running to either Home Depot or Lowes.

I like going in and browsing around while Wade is getting his assorted hardware type things. The last time we were in there I found these.

I liked this garden stake

and I especially liked this butterfly

and this night light made me think of Lin and all her froggy pals

Well here goes. I won't explain anything with this because I have no excuses for it.

It had a happy ending

The other day I was walking towards the sliding glass door. I saw a couple birds flying towards the house. One flew up over the roof and one flew right in to the window. I saw it drop to the deck. I looked out on the deck and it was laying there on it's back.

Naturally I call for Wade because I'm not picking up a dead bird and I don't want Gibbs getting it and bringing it in the house.  While I was closing off the doggy door so Gibbs couldn't get out I noticed it was still breathing. Wade picked him up and put him down in the grass near the feeder and we hoped he just had the wind knocked out of him.

Thankfully when I looked out a little bit later he was gone. I hate it when they fly in to the windows like that but at least this one lived to tweet about it.
