The Best Day Ever!

Today was the best day ever! What made it so special? Well, today I was able to talk my husband into taking the day off from work and believe me that doesn't happen very often. He goes to work NO matter what! That is a quality that I admire greatly about him but sometimes a gal just wants to see her man act a bit spontaneously.

We worked out in the garden together for a bit and then I enjoyed an afternoon nap while he cleaned up the kitchen...dishes and all! What a guy huh? Next we went back outside and did the most amazing thing! This week I had placed 7 new hummingbird feeders in the garden and when we went outside there were close to 20 hummingbirds buzzing all around the yard! In fact I almost received a haircut as one buzzed right over the top of my head causing me to have to duck.

Now for the amazing part. I decided to take a chair out into the grass and sit right next to the feeders while holding one of them in my hand. I could not believe it when the hummingbirds began to land in my hand one by one to drink the nectar! They were not afraid of me in the slightest. One by one they landed and continued to drink occasionally chasing each other away. My husband was so amazed that he gave it a try as well and had many land on his hand to drink as well! It was such an amazing experience and one that I will never forget. I was so pleased to be able to share the experience together with my hubby.

Later on we barbecued and popped the tops on some cold ones together and just sat and talked and talked for hours. We caught up on each others goings on and really connected all because he spontaneously took the day off. As the evening ended we relaxed and had some more fun together...wink, wink ;) All and all it was a lovely, amazing and fun filled day. One that I will remember forever. :)
