They are the Castle Villa Romano-Zall's 'Gang' of ducks and they don't let anyone forget it!
Tante Mary's smile is just a bonus :)
Two homes, five structures & at least one major injury occurred.
It was a slightly heart-pounding kind of day...
Thru it all, the noise from the helicopters, the smoke & chemical smells etc, the animals went on as if their lives weren't in imminent danger!
They ate, they pooped, they slept, they pushed my buttons by digging in the herbal flower garden (yes, I have buttons) and as always, they made my heart smile :)
The calm steady vibration they all seem to exude on a daily basis is a good reminder for me, that it is worth my effort(s) to practice enjoying and remaining open to the beauty in each day I am gifted.
...and of course keeping an eye out for the inevitable lessons, immediately or those surely to come.
