So today Lil Bit will start going outside the learn how to fend for himself. We will teach him to hunt first. He has decided that flying around the house is fun and loves to watch out the window. His life expectancy is drastically cut by remaining in captivity so┬áthe best thing for him to return to the wild. The family will miss him but you know the old adage, if you love something set it free….

Huge storm blew through yesterday evening. Flooding ensued. We are fortunate enough to live on high ground but so many people have had property damage and personal items ruined that can never be replaced.

Everyone is still awaiting the jury verdict on the Zimmerman trial. Police are out in force today, reminders on the news of possible riots. I am glad that its summer and my son isn’t in school. My husband however works at the college downtown and I worry for him, should anything start. We are famous for our riots sadly, so it is a very real possibility.

Well, I’m off to tend to the animals, clean the house, and of course, sit down and do some writing. Big excitement I know! My life is blessed and I’m happy, not everyone can say the same. Love and Light to you all.


Book and Home Front

So I have been thinking the last couple days about a new book idea. Actually I am thinking that I will make it a series of novelettes all based on the same story. Naturally it will be thrills and chills, because that is what I love to write.

On the home front, baby bird has kept me insanely busy. It now has 2 different types of chirps, one that says hold me, the other of course is feed me. He is now learning to perch a bit, and still waiting on tail feathers so it can learn to fly. It is still too early to tell, but we are thinking we may not be able to teach it to live on its’ own, so perhaps we have another family member. I must say, my heart melts when the little things cuddles up to me.

Today is the one year anniversary of me shattering my ankle and leg. Miss one step on the staircase and your life is changed forever. I am still not totally used to the titanium they installed, and the pain is still rather persistent. This gorgeous limp, well, I am just gonna have to live with it. I mean really, what can you expect when from the shin down it was twisted totally backwards! I still member my son freaking out over that and watching (though I told him to turn away) me twist my leg back around. To this day he thinks I am the biggest bad ass lmao!

Hope that all of you are having a wonderful day today!

Flood baby

So Ohio has had nothing but rain for days, resulting in tremendous flooding in our area. A little birds nest was found on the ground, swept away by the water. 2 of the babies were already dead, however there was 1 that was still fighting. That in itself was a miracle.

We call him “lil bit”. He was a week old yesterday. I have been wrapped up in the wonder of him for days now. On a diet of softened cat food, fed with a syringe, he is doing remarkably well. Today he found his voice and is peeping up a storm lol.

Perching is very important and after a few days of teaching, he has almost perfected it. He has learned to hop also. At feeding time, which is every hour give or take, he hops to me, stretches this impossibly long neck, and opens his mouth. He then turns and hops over to my husband for some cuddle time. I think we are both in love.

We are going to attempt to return him to the wild, it just honestly isn’t likely since we have had him almost since birth. But we are going to try it. If not, we have another pet.

I have been so distracted I forgot to blog yesterday. Today I forgot I had boiled eggs cooking, they soon exploded and went all over my kitchen. I think I just kind of stood in shock at the huge mess it made. Who knew boiled eggs exploded like that? Ah well, just another adventure.

Stay dry my friends.
