The first official weekend of summer is upon us, my friends! Every moment counts now and it's time to soak it all up! This week flew by in the Strength and Sunshine household, but productive in my eyes. Except for the bad omen that occurred on Monday. I was going out to the car to make a quick 5 minute trip to the bank to deposit a check. As I'm about 2 minutes away from my house, I look down on the upper corner of the hood of my car. There...right there...is a dead baby bird! I started screaming, but just kept driving, not really knowing what to do. I parked far away from all other cars when I got to the bank, ran in, ran out, jumped back in the car, averting my eyes (trying to) from that area of the hood, and drove home. I was hoping the bird would fall off as I drove, but no luck (it was super hot that day too, I think the baby was melted to the hot hood). I park my car under some huge trees and there are birds nests up there certainly. The baby bird must have fallen? I'm not sure...but it was horrible and now I feel like that's some sign of (even worse) bad luck to come...ugh!
As I try not to be superstitious...I hope you enjoy your weekend, free of birds and with this fantastic Friday Finisher!
