Nature is Cool

Just after lunch, I was in the Baby Goddess' bedroom reading her a story and trying to get her to settle down for nappy-doo. pirateguillermo came running in whispering "Come out on the deck and be very quiet!" We all ran out on the deck (and for once, the BG did as she was told and was VERY QUIET) as pirateguillermo pointed down toward the creek. We all peered over the edge of the deck.

Two wild turkeys were scratching in the dirt below the deck. They were big and ugly and amazing. For a second I worried that one of the neighborhood cats would jump on them and eat them, and then it occured to me that either one of them was easily twice as big as almost any cat in our neighborhood. We tried throwing them some cornbread, but they only stayed a few minutes before flying over the creek and disappearing into the woods.

Awwww. :)

There used to be a flock of wild turkeys living near my high school, and at least once a week they'd be there in a field when the bus passed by in the morning. Good start to the day.

Isn't nature great. I've lived down this long dirt road in the mountains for several years now and I am always spotting some sort of creature as I'm driving along--everything from coyotes to bunnies to tarantulas. So i can appreciate the joy of being able to witness and be apart of nature, esspecially when it's so close to home.

Seeing that makes me feel greatful for living and surprised at all the amazing things that around around us.
