Today’s biggest excitement was that I was sipping my first cuppa and I heard a strange scrabbly noise off in the corner. Not a good (meaning: appropriate) noise for indoors. Looked toward the noise, and watched a sparrow pop out of my “bag for the UP.” Wha????
It flew up and tried to go through the glass in the door, which didn’t work. So I went over as unthreateningly as possible and opened the inside door and propped open the outside door, leaving and open avenue to the out-of-doors.
We had a smart sparrow. It exited within about ten seconds. Whew!
Then the Guru came in and said “have you had the door open this morning?” What kinda question is that? I was making coffee, was all I could think.
Turned out he’d opened the front door, stepped out on the stoop, and did whatever one does in the morning light in such a situation. And did not see the sparrow enter, as that is when it must have come in just moments before I heard it.
As to items on today’s possibly exciting list, I also got a haircut, although I swear this is not my hair color. Apparently it looks like that when wet. At the salon. In any case, that swatch is not attached to my head anymore.
