Things to do on a Saturday

I left my home about 11 o'clock this morning. I checked on the birds, and I can hardly believe how much they've grown in only 5 days. They are beginning to look like birds, instead of just prehistoric pterodactyls. I returned the DVD of the second season of Orphan Black to the library. I picked up several other DVDs-- Heartbreak Ridge, Noah, and The Pianist. I also picked up the first two seasons of Ricky Gervais in The Office. I had a package that I got out to a friend of mine in Minnesota whose son just turned one year of age. Her little man is now wearing clothes in a size 2 toddler. All the things that I bought a year ago I have to find someone else with a little boy to give them to. I've been sitting here at Starbucks having a coffee talking to several people who have stopped and sat down in the chair is where I'm at. One woman, named Kristy, just finished her nurse practitioner education, graduating last week. We ended up talking about neuroendocrine tumors, also known as carcinoid cancer. She thanked me for helping to educate her more and she took my email and I'm going to send her more information. It was nice to have a medical professional ask for more information and be willing to open herself up for more knowledge. We didn't have sunshine today, at all. It's been grey and raining quite steadily today. Many people are complaining about the rain. I love it because it makes everything smell much more fresh. A good rain also Waters the plant much more effectively than me with a hose for a few minutes. I should probably think about going home now. I'm also going to figure out what is playing on the base at the movie theater. I might be able to get a little bit newer movies then some that I will have a week to watch. I hope everybody is doing well and you're having a great Saturday!

It sounds as if you have had a very busy Saturday. Mine has just begun really. I'm listening to calming music and will be off to work in a few hours. My next day off isn't until Monday.

Are you understanding Orphan Black. I started watching it on BBC last season and so I am lost. I like the characters and the storyline that I am able to understand. They have an after show on after the new episode and that is helpful for the new ones but not understand totally the entire thing up to this point. A nurse who wants more knowledge is a good thing. I should make it over to the Starbucks here. It is only about four blocks away. Maybe I could meet someone to hang out with. That would be nice.

I started with the first season, and now finished the second season. I am understanding more after watching those two seasons then I did before. I'm still not quite sure but I'm hoping that some of these things will become known to me with season three. As far as the Starbucks, I am going to those places because at least I can sit by myself and then if somebody talks to me it's fine, but if they don't it's okay as well. I feel safer doing things in that kind of way than I do just going up and talking to people at social events.

@celticeagle it is complex and I didn't really like the first season. But after watching the second season it's starting to grow on me

I am a registered nurse, and I will be the first to admit, there is a lot we don't now. I really appreciate it when a family member or patient shares what they have learned about their illnesses and diseases. We all have a lot to learn, no matter who we are, and who best to teach than the ones who have lived it.

I am so glad to hear that from you. My experience with medical professionals, especially doctors, is that they know more than the patient does. And they have become upset when we challenged.

@CoralLevang No one knows you (or a loved one) any better than you do.

Nice to meet people who are genuinely listening to what we have to offer. I have met people and tried to start conversations with them only to have them turn a deaf ear. Their loss. I have also met people that would sit and talk your ear off. Love that. We had a brief rain tonight. Was hoping and still am hoping it will rain enough to water the garden so the green and yellow beans I have planted will begin to sprout.

That they are! I have also noticed that the parents are becoming a little bit more nervous with me around. They weren't so bad when it was just in the hatching and initial couple of days stage .m but now that they're getting older, the parents seem to be a little bit more chattering with me. Nestlings I have heard not a peep come from them

@CoralLevang Watch out for dive bombings from the parents as the babies get older! As they are more apt to leave the nest, the parents will get more aggressive.

It's always nice when someone wants our expertise. Those tiny birds are just so cute.
