It was just Abby and I at home today, she had a tummy ache so she stayed with me. I've protested loud and often about being labeled the "regular" babysitter around these parts but so far no one is listening. Might have to go to more drastic measures cause I sure do feel used a lot lately.
Abby is a good little girl so I got in a couple of little naps today while she sat quietly watching cartoons.
I planted the little pots of flowers I bought on Saturday. I put the gerber daisies and the miniature dahlia in the pots in front of the porch and the primroses in the porch flower box. I'm going to wait to see if the rose moss returns in the flower boxes, if it doesn't, I'll find a few more plants for that spot. I transplanted a geranium that Zach bought me at their school's hot house into a hanging pot, and I filled the hummingbird feeders just in case some of those little flying critters decide to come visit.
I've been watching my birdy regulars "wrestling" around the yard this month. The Brown Thrasher couple has built a new nest in the cedar tree but I haven't found where the Mockingbirds and doves have been laying their eggs. There's a Blue Jay couple down the road a piece that I'm going to try to keep my eye on. They are such magnificent birds although when they're nesting they can be very cranky. The Purple Martins are back and busy. I love watching them soar late in the evenings and listening to their busy chirps and tweets.
Tomorrow I'll take James for his doctor's appointment, I'm real excited about that. Not.
Well, that's about it for this day. As soon as this child (who was supposed to have been asleep 45 minutes ago) stops playing with that ball (that I'm going to throw out the back door), I'm going to take some ibupro and hit the hay, old Arthur is doling out misery to my hip and knee tonight.
