*As I sat on a bench by the spring lake I noticed two ducks wrestling. Wait. No, it was two ducks mating in the water. As soon as the male jumped off of her back she began to duck (sorry) her entire head into the still frigid water, shake it and fluff up her feathers. Females of different species act the same.
*Uncovering the garden, picking up the dried dog poop (how many dogs do we have? when did we get the elephant?), releasing dead leaves from the grip of the irises.
*I use to have to wait for the warmer temps in the afternoon before riding but now I get my choice of warm temps in the morning or the afternoon.
