I lost my blog last night when my computer froze up. It's been a long time since that has happened and it's very irritating. I had backed part of it up previously so at least I didn't have to start from scratch today.
Last Saturday there was a horrible sight on the interstate. Traffic was at a standstill for 10 miles and people were standing outside of their cars. A semi's brakes caught on fire and burnt the trailer to a crisp, warping it and making it look like a tin can that had been in a trash compactor. There were tons of police, rescue vehicles, and a fire truck on hand.
There certainly are a lot of bunnies this year. I like bunnies. It will take a while for the predators to weed them out. My MIL has some tiny day old bunnies at her house. My hubby found the nest when he was weeding. They were so cute, Their ears were the size of the end of a tine on a fork. We didn't touch them as we did not want the mother to abandon them. A buzzard was on our road last night eating a bunny that had been hit by a car. Buzzards have huge gross poop. Ugh!!
I have seen some pregnant deer laying around the yard. It is about time for them to deliver.
I had to make a turtle rescue yesterday - a small one on the Dix-Texico blacktop. If you are not familiar with the term blacktop that is what they refer to as a secondary road using asphalt in my area. Today I had to rescue a water turtle and a box turtle.
We have been getting our walks in every day again and I am getting my steps in on most days. Sometimes I'm getting a lot, like yesterday - 18463. If I would eat right that many steps would cause me to lose weight. I like my new pedometer my son bought me for Mother's Day. It's supposed to be more accurate. It's smaller too.
I slept in a little today and a lot Sunday and it felt good. I still didn't want to get up at 8:30 A.M. Sunday though. LOL. I'm getting so lazy lately.
It has been cloudy and warm again. It rained yesterday and we just had a thunderstorm go through this morning. It will be hot the rest of this week.
I decided it was a good time to plant my herb transplants in my herb garden on Sunday. My husband has lost my garden trowel or whatever you call it so it was challenging. I don't like him using my things because he never puts them away where they belong. Hisssssssssssss! Rattle. LOL. He was a good boy though and mowed a lot of the yard on Sunday.
I filled the bird feeder on Sunday. The indigo buntings are back and I would like to attract some to the feeder. I need to get some new seeds. I had a male and female rose-breasted grosbeak at my feeder today.
I had to talk my son into going to the doctor today. He is really sick. He has rash on his face and trunk, hip pain, dizziness, headache, fever, sweating, etc. The other assistant manager watched the store while he went to the doctor. He has a sinus infection, inner ear infection, severe allergies, and a skin infection. So his boss is going to work for him tomorrow and give him the day off. I had to go to town to take him his prescription and something to drink.
