This has kind of been me for the last few days. Then again, I guess I really haven't been technically doing nothing. I've been sleeping a lot. I had a spinal stenosis flare over the weekend, saw a new doctor on Monday, got a new prescription for pain medicine, ran some errands, & yesterday I had a yummy burger & fries at the Huddle House followed by a Dairy Queen ice cream cone for dessert. I've been doing a bit of stitching & finishing as well but I can't share photos of any of that yet. So okay ... I haven't actually been doing nothing Sure seems like it though.
I know you have all been worried about the fawn & I apologize for not posting an update sooner. I can't say that I'm real pleased with the actions of the wildlife rescuer but I guess she didn't have much choice. We waited until late afternoon & the momma deer did not appear. We called the rescuer who was able to get the fawn from behind the willow bush. She held it in her arms & the poor thing was bleating so pitifully. She was telling us about how she currently has 5 other fawns that she's taking care of, the nice safe place she has on her property for them, etc. The little fawn kept bleating & bleating. Suddenly momma deer came running into the neighbor's field. She spotted us holding her baby & the fawn spotted her. The rescuer put the fawn down so it would run to its momma, but the momma ran one way & the fawn ran in the opposite direction. We watched it go into the neighbor's field near a hedgerow. The rescuer said it would be okay ... that when it got hungry, it would start bleating & the momma would find it. I would've felt a lot better if I had seen it actually run off with the momma, but I guess the rescuer knows what she's talking about. I hope so anyway. The pit bulls owned by our other neighbor never go into that field so the fawn should have been safe from them.
Right now we are having the granddaddy of all storms. High winds, darkness, lots of thunder. I love it : ) Off I go to make a bit of brunch. Fried egg sandwiches with cheese. Sounds good to me : ) I hope to finish my finishes today too. Wish me luck!
