So this morning, since I was home, I decided I should balance the checkbook and pay some bills, because what else should you do when you're in a bad mood? Absolutely get a close up and intimate look of your finances ;-)
While I was sitting at the counter updating the checkbook, I looked up. What did I see outside my kitchen window? A CARDINAL!!!! I have lived in this house 14 years and 10 months and I have never seen a cardinal in my yard before! In fact I can count on one hand the number of times I've seen a cardinal in my area.
I immediately jumped up a took this quick picture with my phone. I didn't think it would come out so I ran down the hall to get my good camera. I couldn't believe that this bird was still at my feeder when I got back. Two pictures later, the battery was dead, but I'm so excited that I got a couple pictures. I've been smiling about this little bird all day :-) I hope he comes back!
