Let me explain my life at the moment, new home almost full, old home almost empty, new home not yet home, no internet or phone till Nov 13, cell phone reception very bad, air conditioning on the fritz, Soaking tub amazing, energy zero, construction every where, new washer has cold and hot mixed, something needs to be fixed every day but doesn't, beautiful things about many wonderful and annoying things happening all at once! Did I mention no internet till Nov 13th!? Oops! 5 minutes up, still have internet at old 90% empty apartment till 31st, better go pick up the hubby and get back to new home..... My home life is in limbo, when will the insanity end. :) Hopefully soon!

The Egg

It was the birds bed time. Harrison went in to cover the birds. Harrison exclaimed "Oh, No!", and I knew. It was only a matter of time. Tootsie has been acting weird for the past 2 days. To Harrison's dismay and my dread, we saw it. The Egg! Our little birdie is the mama of an unfertilized egg. We were afraid she would lay one. She sits on her egg day and night only getting up to eat. Do not get near her egg or she hisses. So we had to move Lemon away from Tootsie, because Lemon is seen as a threat. There is a lot to deal with when a bird lays an egg. Not the greatest timing with our move.

Our move.... Well, the apartments are done! We went yesterday last minute and looked at a model of the kind we are getting. Ok, so I wont go into detail now because that is a whole other story. But I can say....."WOW!!!!! Its gorgeous!". It is beyond our expectations! :) The rest of the story coming as soon as we start moving....

A Treasured Experience....

It is not everyday where something happens and I have to blog about it....immediately. Today is one of those days. One thing I am going to miss about this apartment when we move is the window by my bed. At night when it is cold, it is left open to allow the fresh air to breeze through. We are on a second level next to a tree that blossoms soft white flowers in the spring time. It really is a beautiful thing to behold....waking up to blossoms. Sadly, it is not spring and I will never see those flowers bloom outside my window again..... But God's Creation has a way of surprising you. That is what happened to me today.....A small treasured blessing....

I woke up to hear a bird squawking near my window in the tree. It was not a pleasant thing to hear, so I got up to investigate. I leaned against the window ledge and looked out. I couldn't find the bird. But to my dismay, I saw a hummingbird sitting in the tree. Now, I have never seen a hummingbird sitting completely still, so I wasn't sure it was one. But it did have a very long beak. So being a bird owner, I did the obvious. I clicked my tongue to get attention. Birds like that right? hehe....I don't know but that is the first think I thought of.

The little hummingbird looked around for the noise and saw me through the open window. He started at me for a couple seconds and then took off flying...toward me! Sure enough it definitely was a hummingbird. :) The little guy flew over to me and hovered no more then 12 inches near my face. He hovered there watching me for at the least 10 seconds. I could see his beautiful red belly. His feathers were shiny and smooth. After his curiosity was gone he fluttered away, leaving me completely amazed and in awe of God's Creation.

That was an experience I will never forget. I have never thought of a hummingbird with personality until today's connection. He was so close to my face and was just as curious about me as I was about him. I am thankful that the Lord gave me that one little blessing and I will treasure it.

30 day notice to the Rescue!

We finally were able to give our 30 Day Notice, after months of not knowing when or where we were moving! I am ready to celebrate! I have been packing slowly for months. There is nothing like a 30 day notice to give a jump start. I have been scrambling like crazy packing everything up! And yes, I mean Everything! I have 95% of all my crafts, fabric, books, magazines, stamps, etc...Packed! Of course that 5% of my crafts are by my bed so I don't have any crochet withdrawal.

I have come to the realization that I have WAY too much stuff! Of course, deep down inside I already knew it. Tonight my husband took out 3 boxes (overflowing with stuff) to the car for a garage sale in about 2 weeks. I am so ready for that second bedroom, 2 walk in closets, and a second bathroom and a pantry!

What does this second bedroom mean to me? It means no more computer and crafts in the bedroom, it means no more birds taking away our dining room, it means no more tv, sewing machine, and excess super cute furniture taking up our living room. It means I will finally have a totally functional apartment. October 31st is not coming fast enough for me!
