It rained all night. Today, it is supposed to rain all day. Not enough to get us out of the drought but it does help. Up here in Northern California, we are not getting the flooding that our Southern neighbors are getting.
When the days get like this, dark, damp and dreary - I have to fight like mad, to get up and out of the house. I just want to stay put. My house is a mess since I took off all weekend from doing anything. I will pay today! The kids splurged on pizza last night for my birthday. I am so done with food. I now need to detox. Oh well, it was all good.
I can hear the rain, hitting the windows. I love that. We've gone from yellow grasses to green - just after a few days of rain. I imagine the plants and trees, thirsty for water - smiling as they bask in the soakings.
The Husband was not feeling well last night, before going to work. I hope he is not getting sick again. He is usually so healthy. He wanted to get up on to the roof sometime today, because we think we may have a pelican or white sand-hill-crane trying to make a nest on our roof. This huge white bird with long legs, keeps standing in our little pond, trying to peck at our fish. This bird is persistent and won't go away. I let Daisey Mae outside to go potty last night, and heard the bird, on the roof of our lanai. Ms Buster refuses to go outside. This bird has a huge wingspan and stands tall. I don't get why it is here - less than a mile is this huge ranch, that has lakes and ponds. Why our little man-made pond? Anyway, today is not the day, to go standing on the roof.
Our eagles are running into some trouble again this year. Liberty laid 3 eggs. On the Cam, a horned owl, a red tail hawk and a younger adult eagle, came into their nest. One of them destroyed one of the eggs. I know I am not suppose to transfer human feelings on to wild life (and trees) but it hurts me to see this happen again. There is about 2 1/2 more weeks before these eggs hatch. We still have 2 left. These will be Spirit's first eaglets with Liberty. It would be glorious to see new life, after all that happened last year.

scary If you've been following me, you would know I am not that social of a person. I used to be a social butterfly at one time...
