I Spy With My Little Eye...

How often do you get to say "MOOSE"?! I was driving to work today, all in a hurry, like usual. We were playing "I Spy" and I saw a long line of cars on the side of the road. Now, I don't exactly live in the sticks, we don't get to see a moose very often. I thought for sure there must of been a car accident and the line of cars and gawking people were all just standing around staring at the horrific wreckage of a major crash. Morbid, I know. But no, there in the field stood a moose, he was a big 'un! Even though I really needed to get to work, I pulled off on the shoulder and whipped Lucas out of his car seat so that we could get a good look. As luck would have it, I also had my camera, and we got a great shot! Something to scrapbook, even...if I could ever find time to do it. I think the last time I was this close to a real moose it was walking around the grocery store parking lot in the town that I grew up in, and the whole town came out to see it.

Also because I was rushing around...I left my lunch and my wallet on the kitchen counter when I ran out the door. And since I'm working until 3am, the thought of no dinner and no munchies was a real bummer. Soooo, I called my Mom (like a ten-year-old)and told her I forgot my lunch and do you know what she did?? Packed me a yummy dinner and she and Lucas brought it all the way up here and we had dinner together on the picnic tables out front.

Best. Mom. Ever.

Very cool! You definately did the right thing. I've seen moose in Vermont 4 times in the 20 years I've lived here (once in my backyard, he was eyeballing the llamas). Wise woman to appreciate the gifts of nature when they are presented to you.

Talk about a basketful of blessings...a real moose when you have your camera, having Lucas with you to share the moment, having a terrific mom (I knew that!) and dinner outdoors... It doesn't get much better than that!
