I let the girls (chickens) out to run around and look for bugs and worms and such. It has rained so much lately, everything is really green. While I haven't done much in the yard this year, some things are blooming and we have several swallowtails that regularly visit the yard. If I am out there without the kids and sit quietly, the squirrels come out and dig around, too. One particularly brave one comes right up to my feet. There are a few songbirds around enjoying the day.
As lovely and peaceful as this sounds, I have to tell you that our background music is circular saws, nail guns, and the occasional beep beep beep of an over-sized vehicle backing up. Ah, city life.
We really need a closing date.
