I am one happy girl this morning!!! Not only did our governor win his recall election (in case you're not politically knowledgeable, it was a big deal historically, I guess!) but something else happened this morning that I haven't seen in over 10 years..........or maybe longer and I am super delighted and excited!
Do you see them? I had to take the picture through the kitchen window with the zoom in order to even get them in the frame...........but they're so beautiful! (And totally unexpected after all this time.) We used to get ducks swimming in our pool a lot when we first moved here close to 25 years ago, but things have really built up in all those years and now, not 10 lots away, is a major roadway with fast food places and shopping of all sorts.
You can imagine my delight when they both jumped in the water to take a swim (since they were swimming my way) but then, when they got out, I was thrilled:
I couldn't flash my camera fast enough. In fact, for some reason, many of the pictures wouldn't transfer to my desktop.
At this juncture, believe it or not, Toby decided he needed to go out........(just when things were getting good!) I made DH take him for a walk out the front so he wouldn't scare them into flying away. Unfortunately, they did fly off anyway not long after the front door slammed! Oh well..............it was fun while it lasted! Now, I can only hope they'll be back. Nature sure is beautiful.......especially when it's totally unexpected!!
