First Hummingbird of the Season
Today I saw my first hummingbird of the season! I always hang my feeders up early - this year it was in mid-April even though we were still knee-deep in snow.
I just wanted to make sure the little critters had something to drink on their journey.
Had a strange day, hormone-wise, I'd say. Tried to get a hair appointment, but the receptionist kept putting me on hold, so I finally gave up.
Put the casserole in the oven, set the temp. at 300 and 15 minutes later, wondered why nothing was happening. I'd forgotten to push the "start" button.
Opened the fridge, took out the milk pitcher and walked over the the plants on the windowsill. No, I did not water them - but it was close.
My head felt spacey and weird, so I lay down outside on my lounge chair for a little rest. Dozed away the afternoon and when I finally got up, realized that I'd missed my granddaughter's synchro-swim meet!
Hubby and I were sitting at the table eating my cooked (very well cooked) casserole, and suddenly I looked up to see a ruby-throated hummingbird at the bird feeder. It was such a nice surprise. Lifted my spirits immediately. As if this little guy (or girl, I can't tell the difference) was telling me that it was o.k. Even though the day had started out in a strange way, it was going to end nicely.
