Behold! :-) ... The new hummingbird feeder! And if you look close you can see that it has a little visitor too! In fact, it had three little visitors all day yesterday! ^_^ They're loving the new feeder...even in the pouring rain!!
I was happy to have something to smile about too, because...as life always seems to go...after all of your wonderful comments of 'silly' encouragement yesterday (about hubby's naming my disorders ^_^), I got a call from hubby, who went to visit his mom, that there was news of something not so funny!
Hubby found his mom and a friend sitting there visiting, but complaining that there was a strong smell of gas in the house! O_O Hubby asked if they had called anybody. They said "no." O_O ... So hubby called the gas company.
The gas company said for them to "EVACUATE THE HOUSE...NOW!" So they did. But hubby waited around for the gas company to come and check out the house...They did...and it's not good news. :-( Apparently she has gas leaking from more than one area in the house. They turned it all off!...So, she can't heat water or cook...she has a gas stove.
Hubby tried to convince her to come and stay with us for a few days, but to no avail. She was satisfied that she could heat water in her microwave for the night! WOW!...What are the women of her generation made of?!! O_O I would've been looking for a Trump Towers hotel!!! ^_^ Okay...maybe, with our present budget, it would've been a Motel 6....with comfortable pillows! LOL...
...but it wouldn't be staying in a house that has the leftover smells of a gas leak, and heating up my bath water and dinner in a microwave!...Anyway! My mother-in-law and the rest of the family have some serious questions to answer today...like what's the next move...throw more money into the house?...or look for somewhere else to live....NOW?! It's not an easy decision, but everybody is getting together to try to come up with a solution.
Oh, if life were only about wonderful cups of hot tea...
...pretty flower hair clips...
...encouraging girlfriend confabs...
...and hummingbird watching...all day! :-)
But no!....Sometimes life is about quick evacuations, assessments, and endurance...before and instead of the boom! LOL Here's hoping yours is the former and not the latter!...Have a good day everybody!
Sometimes you expect a little 'This', and you get 'That'.
Sometimes you will wave away some dust, but it's a gnat.
Sometimes it's an image in the distance that's right here.
Sometimes all the straining isn't worth the things you hear.
Sometimes you will find that 'pretty bad' has got a perk.
Sometimes a vacation is the thing that you call work.
Sometimes conversation meant to heal can go too far.
and sometimes on reflection you are happy who you are.
Sometimes poetry can be so random, and yet deep.
And sometimes it's, upon reflection, thoughts you ought to keep.
