I have a huge test to study for. Today was far too nice to sit in the house with my nose in a book, so I grabbed a blanket and headed outside to sit under the tree. In the span of 2 hours, I think I studied and colored 4 muscles because every time I got into a groove a chicken magically appeared on my book. They'd happily stand there staring and chirping, start picking through my colored pencil box, and trying to sample my cup of tea. I came prepared with a pocketful of grapes and a crumbled up string cheese stick. A quick flick of the wrist toward the bushes and the flock would disappear for about 10 minutes, only to come back and start the process over again. I SO wish I'd gotten pictures. I didn't get much done, but they were too cute!
