Rain Rain Go Away...

I feel like most of the time pictures can describe how im feeling better than words. afterall, a pictures worth a thousand words, right? Its rainy.rain.rainin. im one of those people that is greatly affected by the weather. its been raining all week. my mood all week=gloomy. for multiple reasons though. moving home means missing all of my amazing friends back at school. they are my life, my everything. its so hard not being with them.

on a much happier note, i saved a baby duck's life yesterday! sure did! so the little sister has ducks and they laid eggs and now we have baby ducks running around every where and more nests to hatch. I was outside just looking around and i saw a new baby half way in an egg and half out. it was just laying there on the ground not moving so i automatically assumed it was dead. i looked just a little bit closer and it was breathing! so i yelled at my mom and she came outside and scooped it right up. the eggshell was super stuck to its new little feathers so we washed it off under some warm water. i really thought that it was going to die but then it started perking up. we wrapped him in a napkin and i had to go lay it back out in the nest. the momma duck got up and i laid little survivor down with the rest of the eggs. i was really worried that momma duck would reject it or squish it but so far so good! here are a couple photos...

Wonderful Wednesday

*D and me

This morning I met one of my best friends D (Addie) in Ozark for a little girl time. We met at a cute little antique/tea room and then mozied over to the Jazz St. Cafe for some raspberry tea, lemonade, and delish cookies. After that we walked to a not-so-great thrift store. I remembered this amazing antique store just down the road from where we were so we drove over. D and I found the best old windows, they both have 6 sections, and for only 5 dollars! We just had to get them. One of my thrifting goals of the summer was to find an old polaroid and I FOUND ONE! ahhh! So. Excited. It also was only 5 dollars. There were lots of other goodies that I found but im on a limited budget until I can get a second job. I spent the rest of my day cleaning the house and hanging out with the little sis. Overall, very good day. My mom is off work tomorrow so we are going to go buy some flowers and possibly do a little shopping. Fun. Here are a few photos from my day:

this life is just a roller coaster...

*View from my front porch 5/10/10

Yesterday was sad. It looked sad, it felt sad. Nothing about yesterday was good. And I feel that today won't be any different. I'm making some changes in my life and I know they will not be easy to live with. It is right for me in the long run but I hate this feeling. Alone. That is what I am right now. All alone.

Well, I have a lot to get done today. I am going to get dressed up a little, feel pretty, then maybe I'll be a little happier. It is sunny outside today, that is simply a gift from God.

Home Sweet Home

I moved all of my things out of my dorm room this past weekend with the help of my sweet mom. It took two extremely full car loads and a whole Saturday, but we did it. I now have a room at home full of boxes and bags full of things in need of finding a place on shelves and in drawers just waiting for me to get off of here and put them away. Its a cold and gloomy May day, im not a fan. I want sunny and warm May days back. It's just me and my black lab Charlie at home today. Mom and Dad are at work, and the little sis Haley is at school. It makes for a lonely and quiet house. I hope to be back on later and post about the things I did, or didn't accomplish today :)
