ugh, i'm tired. first of all, i was up and making tea and breakfast by 7. anyone who knows me knows: that's not normal. second of all, i went on a mission impossible, fruitlessly driving around bellingham like a madwoman in search of a hard plastic kiddie pool for the now-teenage ducks. no, it was not relaxing. because: you see one traffic jam, yellow light, or strip mall, you've seen them all. but ahhhh...getting home, letting them ducks out in the yard full of glowing yellow dandelions, feeding them ducks carrots and red worms and watching them gleefully root around in the grass, well that was relaxing. next time, here's to prioritizing quality time to sit and watch the birds, rather than chase my tail.
