Hi all! Happy Wednesday!

I'm in the midst of laundry and packing. My kiddos are heading up north with their grandparents for a few days so I'm scrambling to get Nick all packed and Haley with clean clothes so she can pack her bag. We'll be kid free for a few days, wonder what that feels like??! :P

Oh, guess what I woke to this morning?

A very chirpy robin fledgling!

He/she spent the night in my kitchen in a bird carrier that I had still from my sweet little budgie, Clara.

See, yesterday hubby & I rescued this baby twice, not once- twice right out of the mouth of one of out new neighbors cats. Nice eh? I won't go into how I went berserk-o yelling about how they let their cats roam 24/7. Honestly, I don't care if you never let your cats in your house but when they are in my backyard killing baby birds. Me=not happy.

'Tis a happy ending though, my friends.

This morning as I raced to get baby birdie outside so the momma could hear him chirping and come back to him, there she was right outside my back door on the fence. I was almost in disbelief that she was in the yard. Did she stay all night for him, I wonder. I'm so glad that I didn't have to take him to a bird rehabilitator.

And, being the complete sap I am, my heart smiled a thousand times over as I watched her swoop down and feed him/her in the soft rain.

I've said it before.

The smallest things can make this girl happy. =)

--I want to thank everyone for all the prayers for my Dad. We don't know too much at this point- just that they are 90% sure it's cancer. The Dr.'s aren't saying too much until we get the results back (tomorrow). {Why don't they ever rush those tests back, btw?!} So until then I'm just praying.

Big cyber hugs to all my blog friends for their kind words of support and prayers!


  1. Enjoy the kid-free days. Am jealous!

    Thanks for the update on your dad - I will continue to keep you all in my prayers.

  2. Enjoy no kids, and enjoy the little things in life they are more valuable than any thing money can buy!Great Post! Stopping by from SITS!

  3. Uhhhhh, sorry, missed yesterdays post. So sending good vibes your way. And prayers.

    I also just saw your friend thing in the sidebar. I just got one of those but I don't think anyone sees it, lol.

    Now, on to your neighbors cat! Ar you sure we're not neighbors? OMG, my neighbor has a cat like that too. We feed all the birds and that little bastard kills them. I hate that cat. HATE HIM.

  4. What a neat rescue story. Enjoy your kid-free days - I am positively jealous, but, on the other hand, I can't bear to part with Mouse. Hoping for good news for your Dad.

  5. Thank you for the update on your dad. Been keeping you in my mind since I heard.

    Hoping for speedy test results and for the 10% to be the case!!
