Sunday Thieving and bird report

Let's go!!!

The Last Night Meme

From By The Way Sunday, a now defunct meme blog.

Did anyone call you last night?
No, not anyone who braved the wrath of Mr.Z  announcement anyway.  Mr. Z.is sick and tired of phone solicitors, and they have earned his best attempt at fierce intimidation.  This guy can really roar!

How late were you on the computer last night  I was on until one am, like a lot of nights this week.
What did you have to eat last night? 
Home made udon noodle/chicken soup with crated carrots. Also, I had harvest bread with Earthbalance, and lemon ginger tea to drink after.

Did you watch any good TV shows or movies last night? 
Not last night but I'm watching Downton Abby tonight.  Yay!  O' Brien did a flit but why didn't she take that nasty Thomas with her?  And why is Lady Grantham such a ditz?

Did any news items stand out to you last night?
Don't watch TV news.  Hate it.  I did read in the local rag, and I do not say that with much affection for said fish wrapper, that California is in for the worst drought in 18 years.  The drought before that I lost 15 roses bushes.  Never again will I try to grow them. We are almost down to all succulents now.

Did you go out last night?
  Nope, me and my mild case of flu stayed home and spent time with online friends playing with dragons. It's always fun!

What was the weather like last night?
  Unseasonably warm just like the past few days, or rather week.  We should be getting big soaking rains by now.
What was the last thing you said last night?
  "Thank you,Lord, for such a nice quiet day to stay home and rest.".

What time did you go to bed last night?
  One thirty.  I'm having a little trouble sleeping.  So, I just listen to the silence and talk to the great spirit and hope She/he doesn't mind.  I reckon She/He could stop my heart to shut me up, eh?

FOR the Birds: 
This is last year's nest
The mourning dove female of last year has returned with a new mate - sadly, the big male last year was caught and eaten by the cooper's hawk.  Anyway, the doves are nesting in her favorite spot -under the shade cloth of the patio.  I've decided to leave them alone to do this since wildlife is struggling this year.  No chippies have shown up, and even the tiny house finch and English sparrows are not coming around.  They are usually nesting by now.  We leave piles of dry grasses for them which the doves enjoy as well.  This may turn out to be a very strange year for birds.

Have a very nice Sunday! 


  1. Oh, those phone sales people--I have caller ID and just don't answer anymore if I don't recognize the number. I feel for the people that have those jobs, but I just don't want to deal with them.

    1. So do I, bookmammal. I feel for them but don't want to deal with them. They have your name and make it sound like the call is personal. I blame AT&T. I want a phone with caller ID,too!

  2. Friends with Dragons? Never heard of it! I'll have to check it out. I really like either Unisom or the Nyquil sleep aid - they work wonderfully..

    1. Kathy W., The game is called Ultima Online. It's very old school and very fun. You can tame big funky animals,some of which you ride, and build your own houses in forests and deserts. You get "presents" on holidays. The devs made it cute. Families play it. I play 2D because the 3D is Ugly! Ah sleep.. I take a few meds and an herbal at night and they usually get me through. Being sick messes them up. lol I'm slowly getting better. Yay!

  3. Sorry you're not feeling up to par! I hope you're much better soon.

    1. Thank you, Mz. Kwizgiver. I'm at the stage where I'm pretty over it but the cough is alarming. lol. I stay out of the public domain!

  4. We have an unusual number of birds that stayed around our neck of the woods this winter. Reminds me I need to go out today for more seed and suet!

    1. Hi Paula, ah the birds. They are terribly confused. Many people kept feeding all through the winter because they knew the birds were going to be under pressure from all sorts of weather challenges. I mean, Snowy Owls have most likely never been so far south. Thank you for feeding the birds.

  5. I'm so glad I got off my unicorn to read your blog...finally! Felt like I was closer just reading your meme :)

    1. heehee PJ. Glad you did! Closer is better. But, now I want a Unicorn, too! See what you've done? {Teasing}
