An Explanation

"I meant to do my work today-
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
and a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.

And the wind went singing over the land
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
and a rainbow held out it's shining hand-
So what could I do but laugh and go?"
~Richard LeGallienne



...for those of you who were wondering why I wasn't posting much, or nothing really worthy of much noticed -The above poem explains it nicely.

You may not see much of me in the next few weeks or months - with rising ducks, preparing for our kidding season, and trying to finish three months worth of school in, well... one and a half. *wry grin* It shall be a challange to find the time to blog - forgive me!
