In Case You're Wondering

I am doing more and feeling better! YEAH!

Today I went to a local greenhouse and bought some of the plants and flowers I have been dreaming of all winter. I have been saving my birthday money just so I could get these...


I went with my mom. We brought the kiddos and of course all the boys ended up buying flowers for 4-H projects. We were there for a little over an hour and I was able to be on my feet the whole time, with a little help from some Ibuprophen.

When we got home and opened the garage door, we found this


A sweet, little, scared and weak female Ruby-throated hummingbird. She had a wad of gray kitty fur stuck in her foot. We're pretty sure my cat was probably after her. We sent her home with my mom, so my dad, the vet, could take a look at her. He soon brought her back and we tried to let her go. She only flew a short distance and landed in the yard. Jay scooped her up and we brought her indoors and placed her beak in some hummingbird solution. At first, she wouldn't drink any, but before long we saw her tiny tongue flickering. After she was done eating we took her outside and she quickly flew up to the top of a tree. We all stood there and cheered her on!

I am still dealing with some pain, but it isn't nearly as severe as it was 2 1/2 months ago. I pretty much have to stay on Ibuprophen to function throughout the days, but at least I'm up! I pretty sure my husband is extremely grateful that I am doing laundry and cooking meals again!
