Day 697

1. Dropping my sweetie off at the starting line of a 5K race (which was a fundraiser for the local fire department), I saw this:

(Check out the size of the flag!  This photo doesn't do justice to the scene; but for a sense of perspective, look at the size of the firetrucks relative to the cars.  Then look at the size of flag relative to the size of the firetrucks!  Incredible.)

2. Visiting the city zoo.  I spent several hours there, and all-in-all had an enjoyable time.  (Details about the trip will be posted on my Smile, Kiddo blog in the next week or two.  [Look for item #8.])

3. On my afternoon walk, noticing a whole mess of bees buzzing around a flowering plant.  I took a few moments to pause and really watch the activity – and was impressed at how close I was able to get without the bees becoming nervous by my presence.  It was fascinating to see one bee dance around and poke in and out of various flower stamens.  And when he paused to look at me for a very brief moment, I smiled.  🙂
