I enjoyed a hike to a local waterfall this past week. Maybe sometime I will…
Well, it’s a little late due to the holiday today, but here is the link-up! I’ve had quite the weekend, starting with our water heater failing on Friday evening. There was a flood in our Basement Bathroom and the hallway. Suprisingly, nothing was ruined! The flood had even partially entered the closet where I keep the Christmas decorations, but all was well. I did have to spend quite a bit of time cleaning it up and letting things dry, of course. We were able to find someone to install a new water heater on Saturday morning for a reasonable price, so we’re thankful for that, too.
Then I noticed a bird in the front yard that couldn’t fly very high due to missing some tail feathers. He kept falling back down to the ground. It was so sad. I didn’t want our dog to get him, so when he landed in a hosta plant and couldn’t get out, I caught him. I spent time making phone calls, but no one would take a mockingbird. So I ended up letting him go in some woods near a stream. Maybe he’ll survive long enough for his feathers to grow back. If he doesn’t, at least I don’t have to see the evidence….
Did you have an eventful weekend or was it normal? Did you get to enjoy the outdoor weather? I’m so thankful for some coolness. I was able to enjoy a two mile walk on Sunday, and a 10 mile bike ride today (Monday). I hope that you enjoy the short week ahead of you!
