A Bird in your pocket?

I had clothes drying on the line, and Anya grabbed them just before sunset. She quickly tossed everything into a basket and brought it into the house. A short time later, I got the clothes out of the basket to fold. I took out a pair of Scott’s jeans and … out flies this little bird! No idea how she got in there, and I’m really glad she didn’t seem to be hurt in any way. We turned off all the interior lights, opened the front door, and turned out the outside light. A little following her around and trying to persuade her to go in the right direction and swoop, she flew outside.


We watched the eclipse — it was surprising how much energy the sun puts off when the moon is mostly covering it!

But we had the totality for just under four minutes, and it was dark … and “sunrise” was everywhere.
