I originally had planned on doing photos of the fire, but I am willing to bet you guys are tired of hearing about it, so I thought I would post a couple light pictures. This is [Mostly] Wordless Wednesday Light.
This ladybug landed on her hand and crawled all over her for a couple minutes. She was a giggly delighted little bundle of girl for awhile there.
This is my cat, Cleo, and my friend's bird, Mabel, while we were packing up at one of the hotels. These two were hysterical. Cleo wanted to eat her, but didn't understand why she was so rude as to keep pecking her nose and paws when she stuck them in the cage. They were both very calm and civil about the whole thing, which was maybe the funniest part.
This [not so] little guy was learning how to fly our first full day back at the house! It was a delight to see. His mom kept flying down to nag at him, and he would just ignore her and peck at the berries that had fallen on the top of our shed. This photo is through a window, by the way, so please pardon the weird dim coloring of it. Don't you love his eyebrows? He miraculously came up with the ability to fly when he turned toward the window and saw me and the cat staring at him. He'd been out there for about an hour by then, and I'd even walked around down in the yard and greeted the neighbor who lives behind me and spoken with her for awhile. Funny stuff!
I have a couple random facts for you: Did you know some elephants purr when happy? And that they can't jump? Also, ladybugs can swim.

I had a couple contests for you that I gathered for last Wednesday's post, but they are closed now. I'll have something good for you next week!
Any helpful links you'd like to share? How'd you do on BuNoWriMo? Seen any baby birds learning to fly? Ever heard an elephant purr?
May you find your Muse.
