Occasionally we are blessed with a deer visit. Today was one of those days! Unfortunately, the deer-a doe-was on land adjoining ours and quite a distance away from us. Fortunately, my best friend who was over here helping me in the garden, saw her and pointed her out to me right away. Unfortunately, her vision is quite a bit better then mine, and I obviously need a new prescription for contacts. Actually it is a fortunate thing her vision is so good, since she is the one who drives us on all our field trips... and finally, fortunately, I know a great optometrist:) - I also learned a new gardening skill today. My friend taught me how to collect columbine seeds for later planting. Unfortunately, it was really, really hot outside and I kept feeling a little funny. Fortunately, I was close to our house and could go inside for cold water and A/C breaks in between collecting the seed! There is no more unfortunately...fortunately:)
Feeling blessed and fortunate, Aimee
