Life has been moving on. I miss my Sebastian but I do not miss seeing him in misery. He may not have lived much longer on his own but it would not have been a good life. I placed him in a box that I had built for his finial resting place. He is buried down by the creek along side of Bear, Snowball and Miss Daisy and her unhatched ducklings. It is not marked by any stone or plaque. Nature will soon give him plenty of shade and greens and wild flowers. I will miss his help in the garden. He always watched me and made sure I did it right. I will never forget how he stayed by my side when I broke my back and endured strangers to come near him and touch him. I remember the rat he killed that dared come into the house and run across my bed while I was in it! It was a large, 10 pound rat! I will never forget all the times he pushed his head into my hands so I would pet him or the times I would cry into his fur.
I have been reading and lurking in the journals. I am sorry if I have not been commenting much.
My daughter is moved now. Brook is here more than she is there now. Makes me happy.
The babies are growing! New feathers are on the 2 oldest babies. The smallest is growing and thriving right now. I am keeping my eye on it in case I have to start feeding it myself.
Boy did we ever get rain last night or rather early this morning. It poured. My yard was flooded and so was the field. It has been a long time since I have seen so much water in my yard. I feel for all the people who lost homes and loved ones from this storm system.
I will lose weight now. I am being forced to eat soft foods only. Foods that do not require chewing! I have TMJ (self diagnosed). I looked it up and there were all my symptoms. I have had 2 serious jaw injuries on that side, one hairline fracture and a dislocation once. I cannot afford to go to dentist and have them tell me what to do. Only severe cases need surgery. The best treatment is rest of the jaw, therefore, no chewing, no yelling, no singing(like I could sing LOL), hot moist compresses, etc. It will get better soon I hope.
