out of doors and the pink fluff culprit



Today is the first day I have felt more like living another! Though I was very conservative using the meds after surgery, I went through three days of dismal withdrawals, and if you do not know what they are, and how would you...it is a death wish, days and nights of concocting plans to do yourself in - no sleep, extreme nausea, pains all the way up to and through your astral body- all the way to the neighbors house, sick. I am such a wimp! Too sensitive for just about any drugs at all, I guess.
But I do now understand the urge, the temptation to take just one more to make the discomfort vanish for at least an hour!  I am humbled! 


and on this day, the sun came out for a few minutes, I walked outside for a brief look around the yard.
I think that I am out of the woods with this damned thing!
At least the drug part of it.


The two vent holes  beneath the eaves,had wire over them and new wood around them are where the culprit tossed out the insulation, chewed up the wire mesh, and chewed her way in, to have her babies, of course. 

We have decided to let her stay until the babies are mature enough to leave.
Mr. Man bought a new house for them ,putting it up high on a branch in the Plum tree.
so we wait...


she is a pretty little thing, all shiny and plump, the baby daddy comes for peanuts , eats as many as he can and takes the rest to her.
Things are getting better!
Got a voucher for my flight but must use it before February 8, 2019. If the world is still in one piece by then I am thinking to go to Hawaii . Why not!Mr. Man will probably be agreeable to that trip, There are Cost Co's on the island!

  1. Of course you still are in neck brace jail, but breaking away from narcotics is wonderful. It's a tough go, and you made it.
    Spring is definitely dragging its feet a continent away. Beautiful flowers!

    1. YES, though it was more the nerve medication that contributed to severe withdrawals. But, can bail patients out when the pain is just too hairy!

  2. Happy for your sunshine, happy for your healing! You're NOT a wimp. Pain has a purpose but it can also make you crazy. Hang in there and HOPE for more days of sunshine (be as persistent as a squirrel) and maybe (although I don't like to wish ill on most people) some asteroid will hit the oval office at just the right time.

    1. Sunshine is AMAZING!! and the cheerful agreeable spring flowers that pop up, never minding that their lives as blossoms will be short lived- they just BLOOM! An asteroid might be more effective than the electorate, though , even that, seems to be becoming more rational...Spring is full of hope!

    1. Squirrel...I heard her making the house but thought it was a woodpecker tapping for a mate. The insulation did not come from the dryer nor was a pink dog groomed, Little mama Squirrel worked very hard for her safe place to have her babies!

  4. Amazing flowers, and sunshine too! How exciting, especially when drug-free! Is your insulation culprit a squirrel, I assume?
