For a Visit

Yesterday as I drove through the neighborhood, I saw a lady who looked like she was out running only she was stopped on the sidewalk pointing ahead of her.  I slowly rounded the corner and saw what she was looking at.  Right ahead in a neighbor's yard were four deer - two female and two fawns!!!  They were so beautiful and just gazing at us and the houses around them and occasionally eating grass.  As I struggled to find my phone and erase enough pictures on it to have room to take one, the deer startled and bounded off into the trees.  The day before, #1 and #4 said they had seen two baby deer while they were at school.  Since the schools are so close to us, they share the common woods, trails, etc. that run from one to the other, I am almost positive that these are the same deer.  We are adding to our list of animals spotted in  and around our neighborhood.  We have seen foxes, turkeys (mommys and babies) rabbits, (the usual) turtles, snakes, scorpions, a (dead) coyote, and now deer!!  We love this little extra that seeing something like that adds to our day.  But, sadly, we don't have a picture to share.  Maybe next time.  

The darling husband and I are walking at 5:00 A.M. several times a week, wishing to see some animals.  But, maybe it is too dark or (more likely) we are too loud talking and laughing while we walk to see animals.  Oh well, it is good for the health of our marriage and our bodies......

I love that you and your husband are walking in the a.m. before each of your days begin. That's good stuff!
