Small moments

I've been relishing my time off!  Nothing beats retirement! Except looking forward to a wonderful part time job working with some exceptional kids (see previous blog post).

Anyway, this past week, I've done some serious walking, and have come across a few delightful friends from the animal kingdom.

Two doors from our house is a beautiful piece of property where James Taylor grew up. These guys were hanging out in the James Taylor front field when I strolled by. (That property has 20 acres, mine has about 1--in case you were wondering.)
Also near our house is a beautiful set of trails owned by the North Carolina Botanical Gardens. This guy and I had a stare-down going.
My husband and I have been going back and forth to Brevard from Chapel Hill a lot lately for family reasons.  We often take a break during driving.  This day was in a park in Morganton, NC where we encountered a newborn fawn parked on a trail by her mama.

We left quickly. I'm sure mama and fawn were fine.

I have so enjoyed these moments, and look forward to many more.
