A Bird & Some Yogurt.

I was SHOCKED! Friday afternoon I kept hearing a rustling noise coming from my basement. Hmm... What could it be? A mouse? I sure hope not! Then what else? My suspicions were confirmed that it definitely was something, because Lexi, our cat, was crouched down by the basement door on prowl. Oh no! Here it goes.... I opened the basement door, and out flew a black bird...full size! Aggggh! What do I do? I mean, I have a bird, but this particular one was not welcome in my home! And how'd he get there anyways? As I was searching for ideas on how to get him OUTSIDE, he flew into my kitchen (above).....I stared at him for a minute, grabbed my camera (I have a blog....of course I'll take a minute to get a picture!)... snapped a photo, then opened the back door and out he flew! Whew. Still don't see him in the picture?
Look a little closer. Look who's squawking at me. No, really, I don't want you where you're at even more than you don't want to be there yourself.
And what I found left behind on my couch. Yes, he took one flight lap through my house before exiting the back door. And how did he get inside in the first place? Hmm.... What a day...
Onto some fun that evening... I joined some friends for a lovely dinner at Chipotle, then on to a close bookstore to get some yogurt. What happened to the coffee bar, I say? The company of friends, who are also all moms from my church, was just wonderful! I love getting out and about with friends...and our babies, of course! Above is Natalie, Johanna, and Leslie.
My friend, Sidney, with her 4mo old, Mauricio & I with my son, Nathan, 6mos.
My friend, Heather, with her daughter Gracie (and son Eric), and me again.

Thank you friends, for a great evening on the town!

And bird, wherever you are....thank you for leaving!
