This isn't going to be a proper "I'm back!" post because my friends just left yesterday and I'm still super busy, but I thought I'd check in with y'all today. And I have to introduce you to someone. No, not a person, a bird. Go figure. My mom heard this little guy on the back patio earlier today, pecking around at some spilled chicken food. He was pretty tame - he must have escaped from someone's house - so I put a basket over him and brought him inside. Needless to say, the cats are not too thrilled.
He is now up in room winding down after a rather stressful morning. It's possible that he belongs to my neighbor - I have to find her and ask - but otherwise I'll most likely re-home him somewhere else. Perhaps I'll keep him, but that's a bit unlikely. My mom isn't too fond of what she refers to as 'useless animals'. :) I haven't figured out a good name for him yet, but I'm working on it.
Hopefully I'll be posting more often, especially once we get into July. I have so much catching up to do!
