HG is G-O-N-E!

I thought this day would never get here - I swear. Even though I had control over him being there it was just hard to severe ties. In fact, he called me to thank me again for all we have done for him and let us know if there was anything we needed he would be happy to help us out and I cried... I am such a sap! He is staying a couple blocks away and as I mentioned, he will be using our address and phone number until he can get his own.

I am dog sitting at my mom's neighbor's house until Wednesday. They have a Golden Retriever and his name is Titan. He is a blond as you can tell. They have a tabby cat named Pan but she is a little more elusive then the big galoot. I will try to catch a picture of her. I seemed to be a little more prepared this time around. In the past, I would just wing it and then leave their house at o'dark hundred and go to my apt. to get ready for work which was a lot of driving back and forth. They live about 12 miles away from my apt.



Titan a.k.a. Big Boy

Their backyard is a Hummingbird Highway. They have a couple of feeders and if you are sitting out there you can hear their buzzing wings and they come like every two minutes. It is amazing and the picture does not do it justice. They even get in little fights over the feeders and all you hear is the buzzzzzzz of their wings.



I am feeling queasy for some reason. I threw up 3 times yesterday morning and could not eat all day. I tried some cereal and yogurt and both where a no go. I did have tea or my head would have caved in from the lack of caffeine. I did manage to have some saltines and 7-up so I did get a few calories in during the day and then had a quesadilla with chicken and cheese for dinner. The bad part is since I take insulin I HAVE to eat or my blood sugar gets way low and that is not good.

I meant to mention it last week but Dave got me flowers last Monday because he knew I was having a rough day (it was the anniversary of my Dad's death) They still look great after a week don't they? He has been so good about getting me flowers lately :-D You can never get too many flowers right?


Flowers from Dave 4/12/10

It is pouring down rain here today and I was contemplating going to dinner with my mom but I am rethinking it because I am still not feeling well and the weather is crappy. We shall see how the day pans out. Until next time...

  3. I love hummingbirds too...when we were stationed in Southern Missouri for 6 months at a National Park assignment, I hung 4 feeders off the front of our travel trailer. If I can find the video I shot, I'll send it to you. It was great to study their behaviors...very territorial...some are very aggressive. There is another variety here in the dessert that we've heard and seen briefly, but we aren't allowed to put up feeders. Ah nature...I love it.
