Not Graduation.

I feel like I should write a sentimental post about graduation, but I don't much feel like it today. Maybe tomorrow, or next week. Nope, here's what I want to blog about.

I came home from graduation practice about half an hour ago, and I just saw the cutest thing. The sprinkler was on, and it was watering the front garden as well as the lawn. In the front garden, there is an orange rock. A somewhat flat rock which makes quite an excellent seat when it's dry. It has various and sundry chunks missing from the surface. All these little pockets had about an inch of water in them. And in that little inch of water on that little orange rock was a teeny weeny sparrow taking a bath. I stopped pulling into the driveway so I wouldn't scare him away, and I watched him splash and wiggle in the water for a couple of minutes. I don't know why it made me so happy, but now I am irrationally cheerful. :)

Love always,
Kate

Now I'm crying. Because I want to be a birdy. Or at the very least I want a birdy to sing to me and love me and be my pet forever.

You're crying? Please don't cry. I'll get you a bird for your birthday.

I don't need a bird bath in the yard. Apparently, we already have one!!
