Last of the Birds...

It's so sad. No more pictures of the humming birds or butterflies after this one. I had taken the screen out of the window so I could get clear pictures and something sad happened. A large brown bird hurled itself into the window and got hurt really bad. I thought he was dead and went out to get rid of the carcass and he was setting on the ground just looking at me. I was afraid he was suffering but I just couldn't make his death easier. I just left him there and an hour later he was gone. I sure hope one of the cats didn't get him, but I didn't see any feathers so I'm hopeful he flew away after he got his wits about him. So the screen is back up. He must have seen a reflection of the trees or sky in the window and thought he had a clear shot. Poor thing. Anyway here is the last picture of the baby hummer air dancing below his mom whose on the feeder. I couldn't get both in the frame as quick as they are.

I hate dial up. I've gotten flipped off several times since I get on here to post. When I call them they say there's nothing wrong with their server, yeah right. I'd really like to flip them off some time but then I wouldn't have Internet.

Hey, I've got a question for you. If you can't sleep and stay up until, say 5:00 AM or so, and just can't make it without eating, which day do you count the calories or points on? I didn't do really bad last night. Just a small bag of popcorn. At least I think that was all. At this point I can't remember if there was any thing else or not. After finally getting to sleep at 5 the phone rang at 8:30 and since it was one of my daughters I definitely wanted to answer it. They don't usually call on the weekends and I just couldn't give up the opportunity to have someone to talk to.
Hope your weekend is wonderful.

I don't know what the correct answer is, but I count a day of eating from the time I wake up until the time I go to bed! Yeah, some days are super long ones to avoid all sorts of eating temptations on....but that just makes it easier for me and tracking!

Tough one. I was going to say anything after midnight goes on the next day but the other answer sounds good too.

If you don't go to bed its still the same day. Say you can't sleep on Friday night and you're up until late on Saturday and then you do sleep and wake up on Sunday. Then Saturday didn't really exist. You just had a really long Friday with 2x the calorie budget. :p
