Today I had grocery shopping to do for the month and I had to pick up some smaller items for the house. I spent most of the morning shopping but by noon I was home and glad of it. The weather was incredible. I couldn't have asked for better. I did everything I could possibly do outside. I just could not stand being inside. I'd come in and try - I really would. I'd throw in a load of laundry and back out I'd go. Gosh, it was just too pretty.
Oh, Oh, Oh, I've got to tell you. Every year our Purple Martin Scout comes in right about March 29. I thought maybe we'd missed him but no, he came flying in tonight. I had just come back from feeding the horses and putting the chickens up and looked up at the sky and there was this bird gliding a lot differently than any of the other birds that have been flying around here and I yelled to hubby, "Look! It's the Purple Martin Scout!" Sure enough there he was circling and even started chattering a little so we stood on the deck talking like mad hatters to a single bird, thanking him and telling him how much we missed him. We are perhaps the biggest loons in the country!!
