Can You Hear Them?

This morning I saw the first "V" of geese winging their way home against the cold white sky. I ran to throw open a window, rapt and holding my breath, listening for their faint honking. As I heard it, my heart leapt within me, and I knew I had survived another winter.

I feel this same way when I smell a skunk! I could jump for joy when I smell my first skunk of the year.

Really..? A huge flock of geese live on my property part of the year. That means they are coming! I'll keep an eye out for them. They talk all night and keep us awake but we love them anyway.

Yay for spring!! I smelled skunk the other morning too and then we had buckets of rain this morning and then puddles that didn't freeze. How boring must it be to have no seasons?
