Not a great start to the day. I am feeling really weak from blood tests yesterday and the medicinal diet I am on (to cleanse from sugar) so when I went to feed Monkey and Violet my hand slipped when putting the lid on the cat food and I put a good slice in my finger. Not enough for stitches but not fun.

Then I almost put one of Violet's meds in Monkey's food. Luckily TB caught it.

We are supposed to be going shopping but I think I will go back to bed and start over!

Our friends have a bird leash for their cockatiel. She is a beauty and goes for walks with them and the dog. She usually stays on the husband's shoulder, but the leash keeps her from getting scared and bolting. She loves it!

Bird leash. Huh. I'll have to look it up.

It's the last day of school here so I figured I'd better get down to the pool before it's overrun for the summer by rugrats. And of course it started raining...

We went to the clinic where I ended up with 2 stitches in my finger, a tetanus shot and more antibiotics because the cut came in contact with the cat food and the metal.

I have a major crochet project to get done before Sunday and need all 10 fingers.

Oh, I can't get it wet for three days either and can't just wear a glove.

Here is a bird leash - though it is on an African Grey (my favourite bird). I think for a chicken you could use a cat or small dog harness and lead.

Looks good, GG. I stopped at a little roadside farm stand yesterday on my way home from Albertson's and got 6 lbs. of wonderful, juicy, coastal California strawberries. Most of them are of a nice size (not huge, I don't like those as well) and red all the way through. I gave 3 lbs to my daughter and kept 3 lbs for me.

Eating a light dinner and heading to bed, felt off all day.

I'm just about to start dinner.

I never realized how much you rely on your pinky finger until I cut it today.

At least it won't ruin my passport picture...one of my friends took her kids today to get their pictures with her daughter sporting 4 stitches under one eye from her brother throwing a toy garbage truck at her, and the faint remnants of a black eye on the other side where he punched her the week before. These are normally well behaved 4 and 3 year olds but lately it has been tough because my friend is going through a divorce and the kids don't understand what's happening. Oh, and she had to get the passports done today to have them back in time to go to Disneyland.
