Yesterday morning I was getting ready for work as usual. I didn't have a lot of time left before I'd have to leave, and my husband knew that. But he also knows his wife very well, and knows that despite having finish doing my hair and makeup, get dressed, and get out the door, there are just certain things that are good interruptions for me. There are certain things that just beg for me to slow down and enjoy them for a moment.
He knows that in my heart I have a weak spot for little furry critters.
In the back yard he had spotted from the window a little brown bunny, munching away on all the greenery in our little backyard that has sprouted up from all the rain we've gotten. So Cute! It just sat and munched, and hopped around and twitched its little whiskers, having no idea that it was being watched from the window overhead.
Bunnies, Squirrels, Hamsters.... I just melt. Definitely on my list of "Favorite Things". Take me to the Small Mammal House and the Zoo and you'll be there for quite a while because I'll have my nose pressed up to the glass watching intently at all the whisker twitching. I grew up with hamsters, so that is probably where my weak spot for little furry critters came from. They were always sweet little hamsters who would cuddle and fall asleep in your hands, not the feisty ones that that bite. The were curious things, and were known to escape from their cages from time to time, but always came looking for their owner upon completing their Houdini act. Good memories.
