I use rechargeable too. It sure helps!
I have been getting solar charged, color changing wind chimes to add to my shepherd's hooks that hold my bird feeders now. I love it in the evening when they all light up and start changing colors. I have humming birds, dragon flies, maple leaves, round balls (that's what I started out with before I found the others) and two with dogs. I got the second one because the first wasn't charging with the sun and didn't seem to be working. I went to change it out when the new dog one came and it light up when I put pressure on the base!! So, I'm going to go around and tighten each of them and see if that makes a difference.
We have maybe a 2 ft stump from the tree in the yard and you can see how badly it's been destroyed by beetles or whatever was attacking it. I could even see them fleeing when dh was cutting it down. I am anxious for Tuesday to get here so I can get Chelsea into the vet and see if he can "fix" our broken girl. She seems so sad and she's not eating in the mornings at all. I think it might hurt her ears to chew and she only manages evenings because she's starving by then. She's just not herself. And she acts like I'm going to get her ears...very untrusting.
I took Kara for shots yesterday. She gets cortison shots in her back. The doctor says she has a tear now in the part of her spine that is causing her pain. He wants to refer her for surgery.
