It was icky and rainy this morning and I was gloomy, cranky, and all around pissed off to see snowflakes flying. I had an early morning errand so was out and about in the muck. As I was pulling into the driveway I kept thinking I heard a bird and assumed it was coming from the radio. But when I opened my door and stepped out of the car i heard it again. Just above my driveway in our beautiful maple sat the fatest red-breasted Robin I have ever seen. Spring has sprung. I am happy.
