Getting things ready to take off for the weekend; a wedding, and just a lot of fun and family. I hope you all have a wonderful day.
Had some excitement with a sparrow in the basement. That happens occassionally, not sure how they get in, but they do, so our son got a fishing net, we cornered it in the basement, well, he did, I stood by the basement stairs to keep it from going to the other side of the basement, and the bird flew around our son and up the stairs where it went into the kitchen window and tried to get out the screen. I went outside and touched the screen where it was clinging to, after we opened up the patio door (which is kitty corner from the top of the basement stairs, why it didn't just fly out there I'll never know *L*); the garage door, and the front door, and when I did, our son caught it in the fishing net and took it outside where it immediately flew out and into the pine trees.
It wasn't hurt at all, just a little scared, but at least it was free. Poor thing, but am so glad it is alive and well. I just wish we could figure out where they get in, because there's no holes in the windows or screens and the only hoses are going into the dryer (which had the door shut) and the washer, and there's not really anything coming into the washer that would let it in. So we're lost.
Anyway, it did have a nice christmas tree set up down there to sit in all night if it was down there all night.
We'll I have to get ready to go, so have a safe and wonderful weekend, and always remember that smile for those who need one, or a hug. I'll miss you all.
