The wind has been ferocious since mid-day Sunday, so before taking the dog out late in the afternoon, I looked out the front window to see how hard the wind was blowing. I was chagrined to see what I thought was a big dog galloping down the side street, headed straight for the highway. By the time the animal reached the center line on the highway, I realized it was a deer. Thank God there were no cars coming at that particular moment!
Yesterday, I ran a couple of errands after work. Approaching a red light at a major intersection, I saw an older woman on the sidewalk with a Corgi walking beside her. It became clear in just a second that the dog wasn't on a leash and, sure enough, it walked off the sidewalk and in front of the cars stopped at the light. The woman looked like she didn't know what to do and seemed to be mouthing the words, "It's not my dog." Finally, she stepped off the curb as though to go after him, while I had one of those heart-stopping moments and put my hand over my mouth. And then, the girl at the wheel of the car in front of me opened her door and, lo and behold, the dog jumped in. It actually took him two tries, because he was a little fat. Then the light changed, and she drove off while the lady on the sidewalk went on her way. I don't know what happened. Either the girl got herself a rescue Corgi, or she'd been driving around looking for him and found him. Whichever, it was pure serendipity, in my book.
There were roses on my desk yesterday morning -- from the elderly boss. He apparently had one of his softer moments for Valentine's Day.
And now, yep, the girl's got Spring Fever. You?
Your Spring Sense is Sound
You love the way the sounds change during the spring time. It's like the whole world is waking up.
First the birds start chirping. Then the kids start playing. Before you know it, life is back in full swing again.
You are observant, thoughtful, and even philosophical. You like taking the time to pay attention to things.
You notice the little details that everyone else seems to overlook. And your memories tend to be extremely vivid.
