Like a scene from a movie.....

Well the day started off well...I had a nice shower, took the time to make a killer turkey, avacado, wasabi and sprout sandwich for lunch and when I left for work this morning the sun was just peeping out from behind the mountain, promising a lovely morning.

I got to work, grabbed my messenger bag and started getting out of the car when a bird dipped down just over my head....a seagull to be more exact. Startled I looked up and saw a flock of birds wheeling just over my head. Seriously. It was like a scene from Hitchcock's The Birds. The part where the birds are just starting to get agitated, they haven't attacked yet but are begining to swarm.

It was an amazingly cool moment. I was entranced enough by the nostalgia I could almost see Rod Taylor (hello hotie!) coming forward to my aid....unfortunately it turned out to be Phil, our UPS driver getting back into his truck after making a delivery to an office next door. Sighing I shouldered my bag and let myself into the office. When I peeped outside a few moments later the gulls had vanished and I felt a momentary twinge of disappointment.

Where is Rod Taylor when you want him anyway?

Heh, while Lucie was here a huge (flock?) of crows were in our backyard. Even our cats, who love checking out birds and chasing pheasants, were scared to go out!

Miya that is a murder of crows. Now you know why the cats are scared. Ha ha! When I was a kid that movie gave me nightmares! Now when we leave the school in the afternoon there are like millions of black birds all around our cars. Freaks me out! Maddie runs after them for me.
