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
