I can’t believe it! It’s almost here. I need to start packing and gathering all of my gear…there’s much to do and I’m still training.
I haven’t blogged in a while but I have been training and preparing for this…I know I will be ready but of course I’m anxious. So what has been going on lately?
My husband and I have been walking along the Indian River in Brevard County, Florida every weekend for the last month (at least) now and we love it. Here’s a picture of the scenery:
Here’s a picture of one of the many beautiful houses along the river…I would love to buy it if I had the money.
So what else has been happening…well we rescued a baby squirrel and I had to share. If you follow me on twitter or are my friend on facebook, I posted a few pictures. Here’s one…
We were walking him one night and it was pretty late so it was pitch black outside. Charley noticed something on the ground and I kept him moving but my husband was trying to see what it was. He tapped it with his foot and it moved. He was in a puddle (it had just rained) and was very cold. We got him inside and got him warm. He rushed out and got puppy milk and a syringe to feed him with. His eyes weren’t even open yet. I named him Dillinger. I have always wanted to name one of my pets Dillinger. We found a wonderful friend of a friend who has experience in nursing baby squirrels and releasing them back into the wild. She is taking very good care of him now and I get to see pictures of him on facebook. I can’t even tell you how sad I was when I gave him up but I know he is in good hands.
Also, wanted to share with you that I am still fundraising. I’m at 75% of my goal for the Komen Tampa 3-Day for the Cure. I’m still fundraising so if you’ll please, please donate, I would love you for it! You can donate online here. Thank you very much!
