Yesterday I read somewhere that it was Happiness Day. I'm not sure where I saw it, but it reminded me of something Bret said to me earlier in the morning. "Go buy something today." I'm not sure what prompted that, but I asked him like what? He said something that would make me happy. Of course I countered with you can't buy happiness.... but it was just a conversation, nothing deep or thoughtful. Just morning chit chat before he left for work.
About 11am I stepped out back for a minute. I was checking on my birdhouse 'situation'. Wasps (yellow jackets, hornets whatever they are)had taken up residence in my beautiful birdhouse. Last night we took shipping tape and taped off all the open edges so all the wasps inside would be trapped and all the wasps outside couldn't get in. It's a classy look for sure, all taped up. But anyway, I had my camera so I could zoom in and not get too close, then examine the photos on my computer.
I think this is one of the juveniles from my nest! It flew right up, and hovered in front of me for almost a minute!!!! Not even 2 feet from me at about eye level. I stretched out my hand and it didn't even flinch.
Then it hovered around me for a few more minutes till a second hummingbird joined it and they flew off together. Not to get all sentimental on you but I did tear up over it.. indeed it was Happiness Day. I guess I didn't realize how much I needed it!
