A bird and buffalo blue

When did they start naming snow storms and winter storms?  I mean hurricanes have always been given names for as long as I can remember but I never remember winter storms being named before recently. So I googled it and apparently it is a new thing.

And just an FYI, NOAA doesn’t like it at all.  I have a feeling they would like to have a monopoly on storm names.

Yesterday MacGyver came home with, surprise, another boat.  If one were to actually count that would make four and I pointed this out to him. I don’t remember his exact response but it was something like this:

money for boats and beer

I didn’t say too much because later in the day the UPS man delivered my 7th area rug of the year.  Apparently, I’ve never met an area rug or a throw pillow that I didn’t like and I’m okay with that.

We are heading down to Nokomis tonite.  We haven’t been there since the spider bite and I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was a little fearful.  MacGyver did go down immediately after it happened and bomb the hell out of the house and spray for bugs all around the perimeter but I’m still going to be beyond cautious.

Hank is going to the vet today at 4 and we’re hoping they say they can take out his staples.  The poor little thing has been through so much I would just die if anything else happened.

freakin spider

Hank has also had a sensitive stomach since he started antibiotics after the first surgery.  When he doesn’t feel like eating all of his food I put it up on the island in the kitchen otherwise Boomer will eat it the moment we leave the room.

I’m sitting beside Hank on the sofa and I just watched the bird fly into the kitchen and over to the island and leave with a piece of buffalo blue dog food in his beak, which he is currently pecking and eating.  Guess I’ll have to find another place to put Hanks food.

Personality galore on this one

Our weather is still lovely here.  I ran another 8 miles this morning.  It was nice and cool and it was one of those runs where you actually enjoy every minute of it.  That never happens.  Seriously, it doesn’t and if anyone ever tells you otherwise, don’t believe them.  It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been running, everybody hates the first few minutes and sometimes, we hate the entire run, but we live for days like today when it feels effortless and that’s what keeps us going.

Have a fabulous Thursday!

Did you run today?

  1. Ok I LOVE birds. Your woodpecker is just beautiful. Have you seen Martha Stewart’s canaries? Google it, they are stunning. But she must employ a full time staff to clean their cage. I have to ask, how do you keep the woodpecker from messing all over the house? I would love to get some small birds….

    • He mainly stays on the lanai but when he is in the house I just have to clean up after him. Fortunately he’s a fairly clean bird and he even takes a bath every day. I didn’t know that Martha Stewart had canaries but holy hell they are beautiful. I was never a fan of birds until I rescued Woody and now here I am working toward a rehab license so that I can help more of them. Go figure!

  2. What is ‘run’? I should find out and try it sometime. I’m off this weekend so maybe I will! If it’s warm..

    The spider’s floor is gross lol. Creepy spider.

    Poor Hank puking in his cone of shame. I hope the vet visit went well!
