The Frogs Are Happy
I was happy for it, we didn''t get much rain at all from Hurricane Irene and the creek is still dry, only now there are some big puddles down there.
If you know me you might know I have an affinity for frogs and have a small collection of froggies. David found the one above in a pile of leaf mulch one day and brought it home for me. We could have uncrumpled it but agreed that the squished nature of this little guy added to his charm. So here he sits on the kitchen window sill, giving me a smile when I'm there at the sink working at something or other. The pattern on that leaf there is pretty groovy too.
Windows are open again and that is also a blissful scene. So quickly we had become accustomed to the air and night sounds that when we closed up again for a couple of nights due to the return of the heat and humidity, despite the AC, we suffered and woke in the wee hours tossing and sweaty from the lack of fresh air in the room. As David says "When the windows are open, the rooms feel so much bigger."
