considering what's going on in the world and all i just thought i would share this little//big thing with you guys
some days ya gotta hunt for some joy
today it found me
we had almost four weeks with very little rain..grass didn't grow but got tough
now we have had a whole bunch of rain and grass is growing like crazy (as well as everything else)
..but very thick and wiry
so there i am out on the mower slowly cutting away at the green stuff
mowing is not on my list of useful things to do..
and with a bunch of obstacles today..
.walnuts everywhere and peach tree that limbs are weighed down and can't get under
and pumpkin & squash patches that are all over the place..and the nasty-ass grass
instead of just zoning out ..there i was bitchin to myself
when swoop..right in front of my face..
swoop again..right in front of the mower..almost touching the ground
swoop from the left
swoop from the right
barn swallows...the whole family..swopped and diving and just wonderous to see
it was great
they swooped and climbed and dove again..gobbling up the bugs from the grass..
when they got tired (?) they went and sat on the fence..all lined up and watching me mow
then off they came again ..round and round and swooping...
i laughed and laughed and talked to them
mowing wasn't so boring anymore but great fun
today my joy came on wings
how did it come to you?
