There's Nature Out There

One evening after an especially taxing day at work, the boss took the team out to dinner. As we were leaving the restaurant, a deer ran through the parking lot. A human was trying to shoo it away from traffic, but it went where it wanted to go. It was utterly silent.

Standing at an open door to an apartment, a small cup was dropped and it rolled into the flowerbed. When I picked it up, there was a wee brown frog in the cup.

A flock of wrens were roosting one recent evening in a bush beneath my office window. I stuck my head out the window to get a better look and they were not at all disturbed. They continued to gather in the bush, sometimes looking over at me.

I saw a hummingbird in the apple tree the day before yesterday.

Update: A duck and four siblings were walking at full speed along Juanita way. It was adorable.

  1. You mean my girlfriend picked up a cup and there was a frog in it - silly boy. Good thing I already have a prince or I might have kissed it.

  2. Oh... and you forgot the two rats that were in your tree outside your window in the light of day. At least they seemed like happy scampering rats - not mean Ratagin rat.
    LP as opposed to EP - my other spicier alter ego. I am in LP - mommy mode.

  3. I'd kiss the frog... if he was single.
