What We Have Here Folks… Is A Bird War!

I’m writing this post from my backyard. It’s nice out, the sun is going down, the birds are at the feeder. Like right now, a beautiful, red cardinal is at the feeder, and a woodpecker is hanging out on a branch in the tree. No squirrels at the moment. We do have corn for them, but I don’t see any right now. Now that I’m looking more closely, there are about 7 or 8 other birds in the tree, scattered about along the branches. Likely waiting on me to go away. 😂

Along with the birds, there’s a dog barking every once in a while, a next door neighbor letting her grandson help fill up their bird feeder, (I can’t see them, our yard has a privacy fence, but I can hear them.) Several kids are playing way further down the street, someone is grilling… The smell of charcoal is in the air. I hear birds chirping, a few bugs making noise. A squirrel just made an appearance… but not at the feeder, he scampered along the top of our fence and went into the neighbor’s yard.

It’s about 65 degrees outside, I’m wearing shorts, but I have a blanket. The kids across the street are playing basketball ball now. Can’t see them, but I hear the ball bouncing. Birds are still waiting on me to leave. Okay, scratch that… They just flew over my head and went to the neighbor’s yard. The ones that just put out seed. They stole my birds, y’all. 😂

Know what all this sounds like though? Looks like?

Home. ❤️

Anyway, I’mma end this here and go inside, see if leaving lures the birds back over. Think shaking the birdseed bag like ya do the treat bag for the dog works the same? 😂 Prolly not. I may try though. This is all out war now. I want my birds back! 😘

See y’all! – Heather! ❤️

Work, Run, Parakeet?!

I behaved myself like a responsible adult today, and worked. Also, like a responsible adult, 30 minute run, made dinner instead of asking my husband to grab take-out.

I mean y’all… I’m a fully functioning adult! 😀 Procrastinate? What’s that word mean? *shrugs* I don’t know. (Just kiddin…. I know it well.)

I’ve been editing all day. Which I despise. DESPISE!! HATE IT! ABSOLUTELY DON’T LIKE TO DO IT! (I put that in all-caps, not to yell at you, but so that you understood the severity of my dislike for editing.)

I like to tell y’all about my day, what’s going on and stuff, but that’s literally it. Edit. Run. Eat. Oh!! YouTube. I take these little teeny, tiny breaks every hour or so, so I don’t lose my mind, and I watch snippets of YouTube videos sometimes, which I also did.

That is it. I apologize for being boring. I have no thrills for you guys today. Of course, some of you are probably thinking….. Uhhh, girl is always boring. — That’s fair. *nods* I understand.

I’m exciting though. I have stories. I was bitten by a parakeet when I was a kid. Mean little bird. He was this little bright green and yellow feathered bird, and I was feeding him for my grandma, because she had several birds, and that little nugget bit me! Drew blood and everything! I had to get a bandage. And unlike Spider-Man, I did not receive any fancy super powers. I do not have feathers, and I cannot fly.

So there’s an entertaining story time for you. My life is thrilling, and this is riveting content. (It’s not, I apologize. *shakes head*)

Love To All,
Heather! 😀
