Nesting today

I am home from church today waiting on my hubby
hand and foot from his *accident* so what better to
do then share some photos with you.

{which I took before my camera died...she is being shipped
out tomorrow to the fix it shop, but I sure will miss her}

I have all of these bird nests on a long shelf above my
washer and dryer. I love real nests which most
of these are.

You probaby can't tell , but there is a bird nest in the
bottom of this wreath with eggs in it. Just lovely.

This is a fake nest *pick* and now looking
at the photo it looks like those eggs could fall right out.

One of my favorite nests

Another favorite. I found this one on an old ladder
in my dad's barn that I am using in my booth. I quickly
made it mine. :)

And now for hubby's story. He races RC cars/trucks with our two sons and Friday evening was another
event for them. Long story short, he was marshalling
{ stands on the track and flips cars back over} and he got
hit by a car so he tried to get out of the way and down
he went. {I was not there}

He said he went down on his knees , but he really messed
up his back. I had to pull him out of bed yesterday
and help him get dressed and then get him in the car to go
to the chiropractor. I pulled him out of the car when we
arrived and he slowly made his way

Doc said his lower back was very swollen. He is feeling
a bit better and sits most of the day in a chair with an
ice pack on and off. I think he is very fortunate that
he wasn't hurt worse because people who were there
said he hit very hard.

Thankfully he still has his sense of humor. He is
wondering if we could claim this on our auto insurance
since it was a *hit and run*. hee hee
Happy Sunday everyone!!

i love the nest. your poor husband. my husband and oldest son did rc cars. they were soooo into it. until my son left for the army a year ago. my son has been in rc magazines and was sponsored. my two younger boys were very good, but not into it. so we have a garage full of rc stuff and no more racers in the house. i am glad to hear your husband is doing better. what a fall that was. hey, i'd give it try with the insurance lol! have a blessed easter.

Gasp!! You KNOW that I love nests! Your photos are to die for!! I found a beautiful mud nest in my yard yesterday when I was mowing the yard. It made me sad that some little bird lost her home- (but I am loving having it as decor on my porch!)
