OK Sally--Here You Go!

Darn, this summer sure is flying by!

The weather has been PERFECT so far! Warm days, cool nights and low humidity! Where oh where can I find this kind of weather all the time!!!

We haven't done much but I do have some pictures  I can share.

Rich and I went to the dairy queen last holiday weekend and walked around the neighborhood behind it.

Love the flower box all along the side of this deck.

Someone lost their kitty! Boo! I hope they find it!

Spray paint the lawn for 4th of July!

I'm loving all the baby bunnies we are seeing all over right now. They are so cute!!! I want to hold them but they run away when I get close!

Our little tree in front of our house is in bloom.

I have no idea what kind of tree it is. It's rather cool looking, though!

I bought a bracelet from Amazon that was too small so I arranged to return it. I left the package in the door for UPS to pick up and apparently someone stole it because it's gone! UPS doesn't have it and Amazon doesn't have it! I personally think the mail person took it but they won't even talk to me at the post office!

It was only an $8 bracelet but lesson learned....from  now on anything I mail order I will have delivered to me at work!

That's all for now...

Two more weeks until our vacation!!!

Until the next time!

The Duck Saga and Yes to the Dress!

Remember a few posts ago I told you about the duck that was sitting on the nest right outside the entrance
to the hospital where I work? It was there for about 3 weeks and Thursday when I left work, there was several security guards and a person from pest control outside the building.

Seems that the babies had hatched! Now, the closest body of water to the hospital is the Huron River. In order to get her babies to it the momma would have to cross two busy streets and a rail road track. I thought maybe they would just follow momma and babies and stop the traffic so they could cross safely, but the plan was to put the babies in a box, capture the momma and bring them all safely down to the river.

When I got out there, they had already put the babies in a box and they were trying to catch the momma. She was having none of that!

She was spitting mad, too! See her right by the box on the right? She was strutting around squawking and every time they tried to catch her with a net or a blanket, she would fly a few feet away.  Then she would always come back to where they had her babies in the box!

I watched for about 15 minutes and then I had to leave. One of my coworkers was out there  30 minutes after I left and they were still trying to catch her! I was worried about her all night!

On Friday when I got to work there was a sign by the empty nest.

It's hard to read but it says "Mother duck and all chicks are down at the Huron River and doing fine. Thanks for carefully watching her"  Whew! One less thing to worry about!

In other news...Shauna bought a wedding dress yesterday! It's gorgeous, too and she knew the minute she put it on that it was the one.  I can't post pictures of her in it but here's a little hint...

The buttons that go down the back go all the way down to the end of the train!

Eeek! We're so excited!!

Until the next time.
