some days are diamonds, some days are dust...
I went outside yesterday morning and peeked in on the birdies. All five of them had hatched and were chirping for something to eat. No sign of mom as I assume she was out foraging for food. Still no sign of the Mr. Just love the little chirping chorus.
I am now the proud owner of a new 'permanent' splint on my right wrist. Permanent in the sense that I only need to wear it when I'm sleeping, doing household chores, working in the yard, out in public, playing with my grandchildren and/or husband....in other words I can take it off to bathe and that's about it. Permanent also in the sense that it will be 6-8 months. Unless they change their minds about surgery. Yipee!!!
In other exciting news, I got hacked. Got my credit card number stolen and somebody went on a lovely vacation, even buying themselves an $8 coffee. They must be from around here!! As it turns out my credit card company was monitoring this activity, closed my account and took care of the charges. I now have a new card, funny thing is, I don't carry my credit cards with me so it wasn't lost and I don't use that one online so I can't quite figure it out...they got my cell info too and opened phones for all their friends. Finally, I'm in a 'friend' group! All is well there too but I just hate changing all these numbers and passwords all the time.
And to end this strange day...my little chirpy chorus is gone. All the babies have perished (with open mouths) and the momma has not returned. I've heard of birds abandoning their nests before but I'm more convinced that something happened to the momma. The hubs thinks it's because we were hanging out doing yard work yesterday and maybe scared her off. I hope not...so sad that nature.
