Today was a beautiful day in the 'hood. So I spent some time outside watching the kiddos ride their bikes down our lovely tree lined street. Of course I had my iPod stuck to my ears, what, was I going to listen to the kids scream at each other while racing?? So, in an effort to retain my inner peace, I was listening to Mozart. Low enough so I could still hear the randomness around me, of course. But instead of random noise, I thought I heard something .... different. So off went the headphones for an audio investigation and to my delight, it was birds I was hearing :)
I never noticed birds much before we moved into this house. Now they're all over the place. Cardinals, blue jays, and some little things that sing their hearts out all day. And so, I stood there, smiling, because all is right in my world tonight.
