This is a quick post while waiting for the February 14th draw. (Read post of January 26.) I hope you have left a comment there to be in the running for Laura Best’s book Bitter, Sweet.
In the interim I am writing, and reading, and thinking about what I will say in my review of the book I read just last night.
Right now I want to mention something neat that happened yesterday. My husband and I were on our way home from church and dinner, and upon driving up the road to our house we slowed to turn into our driveway. But, we stopped instead because, to our surprise, there at the end of our driveway stood — a red fox! A beautiful, bright-eyed, healthy-looking fox! Unalarmed, it just stood there looking at us a few moments. Then, seeming to realize we were going to turn in, it calmly strutted out of our way and trotted up the hill by our yard. The people in front of us turned and drove back to watch this gorgeous animal, and another van also stopped when they realized we were watching something. The fox must have found an interesting little critter to its liking because not long after that it was on the side hill digging, with its back end up and head and shoulders hidden in the snow. Amusing. It mattered not to the fox who was watching.
Gotta love rural/country life! Here I have the privilege to see all kinds of wildlife, including eagles nearly every day, and also hawks, many other birds, white-tailed deer, foxes, coyotes, and other animals. Yes, I love God’s creation!
What do you like about where you live?
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!
