Most of my family has given up on watching LOST. I'm sticking it out just because. Last night John got home early from tennis and thought he would watch LOST with me. BIG MISTAKE.
It's hard enough to explain this year to somebody who hasn't watched one episode, this year, let alone this particular one. I was bombarded with questions. And, I can't say I blame him, it is still very confusing and all the hype that "questions will be answered", well I'm still waiting, writers!
I'm watching my grass get greener, a calming past time. There are no signs of anything budding out at this point in time. John claims that our Willow tree is getting that yellow tinge to it that heralds Spring. I guess I see it. I did rake out some garden beds of winter leaves and found some three inch green leaves of daffodils coming up. That's a good thing.
I went by a pond, on a farm, yesterday and could hear what sounded like a THOUSAND frogs croaking. I keep putting water in our little pond, hopeful. I thought I heard two frogs the other day.
Frankly, that's a sound I could sit and listen to all day.
The Red Wing Blackbird is here, marking his territory, in the yard but I have yet to hear him call to the females. I don't think they have arrived yet, or he is extremely confident about attracting them.
Murphy is quite beside himself these days. Two nights ago I let him outside for his last evening constitutional and at the same time he and I saw deer, up in the upper field, by the edge of the woods. I lunged for him, to pick him up at the same time he sprung into a flying leap to charge up to the beasties in HIS YARD.
No fear in the boy.
He herded them into the woods. Well, that's his story, although I think they were surprised to see such a fast bunny rabbit running at them. They didn't scatter that fast so Murphy had time to show his true "heel biter" qualities.
When I finally caught up to him and managed to coax him back to the house, we seemed to have missed the COME command in training class, he was quite beside himself with pleasure.
I wish you could have see his eyes, bright, slightly glassy eyed and he seemed to quiver all evening with excitement.
Imagine yourself as a twenty pound solid muscle, slightly bigger than the biggest rabbit you could find, chasing HUGE HUGE FOUR LEGGED BEASTIES around.
Murphy has Super Hero qualities, for sure.
Of course, the next morning when John let him outside, from the front door, in his bathroom and bare feet, he didn't expect Murphy to run around the to the back of the house and back up to the upper field.
I heard Murphy's name and a few other's slowly fading off into the distance so I went downstairs to unlock the basement door for them.
I watched Zeus, picking up his feet carefully and painfully and he hauled Murphy back to the house.
" But, Pa it's what you call FOLLOW UP."
I'm not sure they are talking to each other yet.
:)Bea Creating is the LIFE FORCE of the soul.
P.S. I'll be out of town until Sunday night. You just go right on creating and tell me all about it when I get back. We'll sit and have a cup of tea together and look at all that you have done.
