Musings this morning



When you live in the city, one of the drawbacks often mentioned is the lack of nature. Well, that is one of the drawbacks that I am always mentioning.

Anyway, if you live here long enough, Nature comes to you.

We have lived in several apartments during our 5 years here and after about a year, nature settles in and discovers what a good thing you have going on. Nature loves crumbs that your toddler leaves, water from that drippy pike, and the warm snuggy blankets heated by the over-zealous radiators.

It all goes too far when Nature dashes across your kitchen floor when you go in later for ice cream.
That nature I can do without.

Now I wonder if I leave the city, will I miss all this nature?

*the only nature involved in the making of this Cherry Granola Bread was of the plant variety (well I guess a cow forked over some milk, and a chicken an egg), but no small furry bits of nature helped (or were harmed) in any way.

That little four-legged nature (totally not a fan!), unfortunately will still find you when you leave the city - they just might be a little cleaner.

And if it is not the four legged kind... it could be a two legged one with 5 little eggs on your front door.

Then again, a squirrel did move into the bird house on our tree.

A little bird here
A little squirrel there
Nature, Nature everywhere.
