Weekend Experience

15 Jun

This weekend we started a move.

We found out that family friends of ours were renting out a place on their property.  After checking it out last Saturday, we said we’d take it.  Put in our month notice to our current place and started packing.  We’ve gotten most of our items packed, with the exception of the things we’ll need this next week.  All those boxes are now at our new place.  We are ready for the UHaul next Saturday to come and move the furniture.

This will be our backyard

and this?

This is close to our place, but far enough away not to worry about flooding.

We are very excited.  It’ll be a much larger place, room to spread out.

As we were loading up the truck for the second to last time, I heard commotion off to the side of our front lawn.  Birds were freaking out at our dogs.

I shortly discovered why.

This little guy.

This little guy.

Looks like he fell out of the nest while trying to fly.  He didn’t have all his feathers yet.  We got the dogs inside and I then took a couple more photos.  Warned the neighbors not to let their dog out and went back inside to keep packing.

After a couple hours, I went outside to check on him and he was gone.  Looks like he made it back to home safe and sound.  Thank goodness!

What experiences with wildlife have you had lately?

    Yeah! Glad that you got the place 🙂

    Fast movin’ though… sometimes that is better.

    My golden retriever left us a present – a mole- on our front door step… ugh!

      I’m glad it’s going fast, makes it have less time to worry about what to bring and not to bring. Have to make quick decisions instead.

      Oh dear…..dead moles are nasty. At least it’s not digging up your lawn anymore!

    I wish our move could be done in stages like yours! Can’t wait to see how you arrange everything in the new place. 🙂

      I know, I wish yours could be too! It would make things so much easier for the babes as well. Can’t wait to have you visit!

      It is so amazingly peaceful. I just know I’ll be spending a lot of time just sitting outside listening to it.
