Happy Sunday, everyone! How are you doing this week?
I hope you’ve got lots of great stuff from the “Gratitude & Kindness” Department to report! :img26
This week, I AM HAPPY that I was (amazingly) in the right place at the right time to help save my neighbor’s pet bunny. They’d left him in their fenced-in yard to enjoy some fresh grass, but somehow he got out & crossed the road. :img36 Totally out of the blue, I happened to glance out the window & see a bunny hopping a bit away from the road as a car passed. But the more I stared, the more I started to think it didn’t look like a wild bunny; he was a lighter, more butterscotch brown, & his hopping was erratic, whereas wild bunnies usually race across the road & keep going until they feel safe. So I ran over to let the neighbors know their bunny was loose, & stuck around long enough to keep traffic from hurting him while the kids captured him & took him back inside. :img35
I also got to hold him for a while, & he was just the softest, sweetest little thing ever! The Kittehs would have been totally jealous if they’d seen the luvins I was giving that guy. :img27
I AM HAPPY that I also got to save a bunch of honey bees. There was a giant swarm in a neighbor’s tree Friday afternoon. It was so loud, I could hear it from inside my house a yard & a half away. :img33
I was so afraid they’d call an exterminator when they got home that I immediately got on the phone with someone I know who keeps bees & told me he or some of his beekeeping friends would be interested in removing hives/swarms if I ever spotted any. Bees, as you probably know, are UBER important to the survival of the human race. Remember the movie Bee Story? Yeah, well, it wasn’t fiction. If we die, bees will I’ve on; but if the bees die, we die. :img22 So we must do everything we can to Save the Bees, giving them safe places to live & lots of plants to eat!
The guy I called isn’t the guy who came out, but someone did come with a truck full of bee-rescuing supplies! It was really fun to watch them work, too—from a safe, sting-free distance, of course. :img4
And finally, I AM HAPPY that I’ve managed to get back to my daily routine on the Torture Cycle after skipping it for a few days in a row because I just didn’t feel very well. Not sick, exactly, but blah. Tired, moderately feverish, achy…just not myself. The DVR programs were piling up, but I’m making a dent now. Fingers crossed I can keep at it.
So how about you guys? What good stuff has been going on in your lives lately? Anything you’d like to share or crow about? :img15

Love the bunny story. So glad that you could help. Now while I know that bee’s are important, I just hope they don’t hive up anywhere near me. lol I have such a phobia of them. *Shudders*
A few days ago I saw a pigeon who has been around here for a while. I can always tell it’s him because one of his legs is missing and he hops around on one leg. But he can fly just fine. I threw out some bread and bird seed and he hopped over to eat. It as 105 that day so I asked Ken to water the tree’s so the birds could get some water too. Little one leg stayed out there for quite a while playing in the puddles left by watering the tree’s.

LOL Hey, I’m not saying invite them in for a tea party. :img4 I kept my distance, too, believe me. But if you ever do get a swarm of honey bees too close for comfort, be sure to call beekeeping folks who can remove them safely (for everyone) & get them relocated. Not just some exterminating company—or someone with a can of Raid :img22 —to kill them all.
Aww, now I feel sorry for your poor, one-legged pigeon. :img22 I’m so glad you fed him & got him some water. Poor baby has it rough enough as it is. I know it’s not the popular thing, but I love pigeons, too. Folks who complain about them are the same folks who cut down all the trees & put up skyscrapers, so it’s not like the birds have a lot of choices about where to roost or poop. :img20
