      For the record, I did not take the picture below, wish I had, LOL.

    So tiny and cute, Isn't it sweet?  Did you know it is a songbird and it has a very loud song?  Did you know it starts singing at 5 IN THE MORNING?   RIGHT OUTSIDE MY WINDOW WHERE IT HAS A NEST.  DID YOU KNOW IT IS STILL SINGING.......3 HOURS LATER AT THE TOP OF IT TINY LITTLE LUNGS.   ARRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH.

   I am getting ready to go to my MIL's to do some cleaning for the company tomorrow.  She had a bad day yesterday.  Very tired and exhausted.  She told Rick she is going to not renew the newspaper because she doesn't think she will be here much longer.

     Well, we didn't go on a bike ride yesterday.  Rick got back from his motorcycle ride and said the wind was brutal.  Gale force wind warnings all day.  We didn't eat chicken either.  Rick made some killer steaks on the grill with sauted mushrooms, a nice spring salad and a great italian bread.  Then we ran some errands.  When we got back BIL and nephew were here.  

                         Now for my BIL daily rant.

                   They went into my other house and  dug around.  "Borrowed some video tapes" and who knows what else.  We had our old house re-zoned as a storage unit until the day I can afford to tear it down.  I thought is was locked up tight.  What gall.  I would never never never go into another persons property even if it was a relative with out asking.  I wouldn't "borrow their stuff" without asking.  Where does this guy get off.  I kept my temper in front of my nephew and just mentioned that going in someone else's house while they weren't there wasn't the nicest thing.  What if I had had the alarm on?  I will from now on I tell you.

      So here I am, all relaxed after my meditation this morning. Ommmmmmm

    Hoping to kick them out so I can clean quickly and then come back and start the ribs and bake a cake for tomorrow.  I am making an american flag cake for tomorrow with fresh strawberries, yummy.
Low fat of course.

   Well, have a great day all.  I will.  I decided on no gym today as cleaning her house from top to bottom should be plentyof exercise for today, sound like a good excuse?

My goodness, I can't believe that man.   You are a better person than me, because I would have ranted about that...nephew or not.     Singing bird alarm, eh?    lol   It could be worse....BIL could sing to ya at 5 a.m.

That is a beautiful little bird with it's feathers all glistening. I wouldn't have liked your BIL going into the house either. Best make sure the alarm is on from now on. Hope your day goes well cleaning your MIL's house. Helen

The page is scrolling again Julie.  Your bird picture must be a large jpeg.  
As for your BIL he is bang out of order and he knows it too.  You are too patient.
I hope you electrify the door handle or something when you switch on the!  
I liked the sound of your menu of steaks...I love a nice juicy steak with salad. And what about your little wren?   It's a little tweety pie!  It's so gorgeous.  What a super picture!   That fair cheered me up when I opened the page.  
However I'm so sorry Betty has to go through the harrowing experience of recognising her own impending death.  I pray for a comfortable passing over for her.  May God please give her that on her last journey here on earth.   I am still mentioning her in my prayers at night.  Jeanie xx

I love the birdie clear and sharp!  I feel so bad for your MIL...she sounds like a trooper though...and so lucky to have you in her life.  Maybe soon you can ride the bike...but not good to ride anything in heavy wind...
Hope the week is good for you...many hugs,

The next time hon, politely ask your nephew if you could have a few words with your BIL alone, tell him it's personal. Then tear your BIL a new one. Who the hell does he think he is , just going through someones property without asking. It doesn't matter if he is a relative or not. I would tell him it's against the law, breaking and entering is a felony. I hope you do have the alarm on from now on. I have a feeling your BIL is not done scavenging through your belongings.  I'm keeping your MIL in my prayers on the smoke. (Hugs) Indigo

Your BIL is entirely out of order. I'd have had a few words to say to him! I do hope you keep the alarm on now, who knows what he's taking from there. I hope the cleaning for your MIL went well. Jeannette xx

I have some bird that begins singing loudly outside my window at 4:30 AM every morning. Perhaps the culprit is a wren?

Sorry to hear the emotions of your mother in law dying is getting so confounded by family dynamics.
