What a start to the day!
I didn't realize Dan had already headed out to the bathhouse about 5 a.m. until the weather radio woke me up. Do you know HOW loud those things are when you are sound asleep???
After I was able to peel myself off the ceiling and put my heart back in my chest and turn the radio "off", I quickly got dressed so I could get out and help Dan before it started storming like crazy. It was already lightening and thundering and neither one of us are too keen on walking in the lightening. I debated on whether to take the truck out to the bathhouse.
By the time I decided to take my chances and walk out Dan was already on his way back to the office.
I made coffee, he took a quick shower (lightening and all of that makes ya quick) and then it started to rain.
Something we never do is have a morning to ourselves where we can sit on the deck, with our coffee and start the day. But we thought with all the rain that no one would be coming up to the office right away.
Our deck is partially covered so it IS possible to sit and watch the rain, the clouds, the birds, etc. And the hummers have gotten so use to us, that they will use the feeder that hangs on the deck "ceiling".
It was so peaceful, even with the lightening. And the clouds were spectacular. But it started raining harder so I set my covered coffee mug on the railing of the deck and came in to shut some windows.
I returned, set in my chair, watched the hummers at this feeder, conversed a bit with Dan and then reached to pick up my covered coffee mug. At the same time, a male hummer decided it was time to take a poop. He managed to get my hand AND MY COFFEE MUG COVER! OH, NO YOUR DIN'T! Oh, yes he did. YUCK!!
I didn't mind the part of washing my hands but now my cup of coffee was tainted!!! I mean I like my morning coffee so much that Juan Valdez has adopted me as part of the family. I only have two LARGE cups of coffee in the a.m. so it isn't like I drink a lot...well, I DON'T think I do, but then Dan says I'm the only person he knows that can type 60 words a minute with my toes after my morning coffee.
SO YES, I WAS DISAPPOINTED AND DID NOT EVEN CONSIDER A 2ND CUP OF COFFEE. My mug and lid are SOAKING IN BLEACH. Probably for the next several hours!!!!
Hope your day gets off to a better start!
