You Know Spring Has Arrived

when birds are chirping,
in your dryer vent.
Okay, not chirping so much as fluttering.
That was the sound I heard coming from my laundry room as I sat at my keyboard, minding my own business, typing away.

You know, I was getting too confident in my ability to stick to my writing schedule despite the many varied distractions and interruptions life can throw at me. I don't know what you would have done, but I pretty much ran screaming out the door the second that bird spread it's wings and started flying through my house. Don't ask me why. I don't have time to analyze how I can reach into the disposal bare-handed but not stay composed in the presence of a small lost sparrow.

So Happy Spring to you. Hopefully all the birds & animals at your house are invited guests and not surprise drop-ins!

I always know it's Spring when the bunnies return and start to, once again, take over my backyard. The males at my house are itching to take out their BB guns for a little target practice, but I love the rabbits. They're cute. And the constant birdsong this time of year is just lovely. Happy Spring!
