The only thing that really sucks about owning a bike now is that I don't have a garage to put it in. So I'll have to keep it in the house. I also don't have a hitch for bikes on my Jeep, so I'll have to get one or I'll be sticking around my house to ride. I felt kind of guilty spending so much money, but I justified it by telling myself that it's a present to myself for maintaining 100 pounds lost for an entire year.

Jerry called the vet to see if they knew of someone that would take it in, and got the number to a guy who specializes in wildlife. He didn't answer the phone, so desperately, I told Jerry of this house that I pass on my runs who takes care of the wild ducks there. They have a fence set up with shelter and everything, but it's open to where the ducks can come and go as they please. I told Jerry to bring the duck there, knock on the door, and ask if they know what to do with it. The guy actually took it in, and said that he cares for the abandoned ducks and other animals until he can let them go. What luck is that?! So now the sweet little duckling has a home.
this post from Alex at Spoonful of Sugarfree. Instead of making the recipe though, I just chopped up a peach and dumped a packet of Emerald Breakfast On The Go on top (I was feeling too lazy to make the actual recipe). Then I nuked it for 1 minute in the microwave. The peaches got hot and melty, and the granola topping stuff was so yummy. I picked out the yogurt-covered raisins (and ate them separately) because I didn't think they'd fit in with the peaches. The only thing that could have made it better would have been a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but sadly, I cannot trust myself to have ice cream in the house. I've made this dozens of times with apples, but I never thought to use peaches! It was SO good. I'll definitely be making it again. I'm sure it would be good with any kind of granola or crunchy cereal. I love a nut and dried fruit combo.

Have you ever taken in a wild animal or just a stray animal? I seem to be doing it a lot lately! First Estelle, then Paolo (both cats), and today the duckling. Thank goodness we found someone else to take the duckling, otherwise I'd be nursing it here until it was big enough to go back in the wild.
