A Bird In My Hand

Today, a hummingbird
flew right in my door, passed me in the kitchen, and into the living room. Oops, big problem when that happens. The top of the ceiling in the living room is about 25 feet high, and once a hummingbird starts flying around up at that hight, it's nearly impossible to get him down. About 30 minutes later and me chasing around with a broom and a step ladder, and we are both utterly exhausted. Well, I think this hummingbird was a baby, because he just kept flitting around in the window. I went over and actually got him to sit on my finger! Then, I cupped my hands around his tiny body, took him outside, opened my hands and away he flew. So sweet, that made my day. :o)

Hi Valerie

It was nice seeing you earlier. I think if you click on my name, it will take you directly to my blog, but if not:
www.alittleofthisthatandtheother.blogspot.com

Once you are on it, there is a link to my portfolio blog immediately to the right, below my picture. To see the live feed, you have to scroll all the way down to the bottom, left-hand side.
It was nice seeing you today and like I said, one of these days I will come with my camera so i can do a post of your stuff.
