Mamma Mia

Thursday, July 16, 2009

Well today it's 102 degrees. I was just thinking of driving up to get Jake the Basset Hound, who I am doggy sitting, and bring him to our house for the afternoon so he won't be out in the heat. But I had to wait for my Daughter. My Daughter comes home from her afternoon of running around, informed me the car is overheating. "It's bubbling" I think my eyes bugged out of my head hehe. After the car cools down, we check the radiator. I was hoping it just needed water. The radiator was full, so then I check the oil. Oil is good as well. Now my brain is spinning, both my Hubby, who just started working 2nd shift, and my Daughter, work tomorrow. That leaves us with one car. My Daughter can't call in sick, she just got back from vacation. So the only thing left to do...I drive my Daughter to work in the morning, (a hour drive), then drive my Hubby to work in the afternoon (an hour drive), I then drive another hour to pick up my Daughter, then head home. I have to be back at Woodland Hills by midnight. I then started thinking of Billy Joel's song, "Pressure"

I was standing by the car, dazed, when my Daughter spotted a Hummingbird flying right by me. Oh did that make my day. It is the first one I have seen this year. I guess that is God's way of putting me back into a good mood, and showing me his beauty. Now I know where I want to put our Hummingbird feeder!!

    I feel the heat!! I love hummingbirds, too. Perhaps the little hummer was a sign that good things are in store for you.

    Have a sparkalicious Friday!

    Nothing like 102 degrees to bring out car trouble, unless it's -30 degrees and car trouble too.

    Glad you got the sign of a better day with the hummingbird.
    Hope your car keeps humming along too

    Gosh I know that feeling about car's. Everybody's car has broken down and my car is working overtime.
    That's so cool about the bird and the special meaning.
    Best wishes with getting the car fixed
