I was so excited when I left for work this morning because in the yard next to my bedroom window was a lovely little turtle! It was strange to see because I have no idea where it could’ve come from, but it was just there today. I had to, of course, run back inside and get K so that he could see. Growing up in one of the world’s largest cities (Seoul), he hasn’t seem too many wild animals besides birds, bunnies, and squirrels, so I like to show him new things sometimes. It’s head was sticking out of the shell, but when I got close he hid back inside.
I know it might seem silly to be excited about seeing a turtle, but any morning that I can head outside to lovely weather and see a cute little critter is a great morning for me. I just love seeing wild animals and it seems in our little apartment community that I’ve seen surprisingly many animals. I’ve seen a groundhog, a turtle (now), tons of chipmunks & squirrels, lots of bunnies, birds of course, deer, coyotes, and my favorite, a mink. Oh and lots of cats. I think they know that Chester lives here because they always come to visit.
I’ve always loved animals. When I was little, I wanted to be a veterinarian or zoologist. Funny, the dreams we have as kids. Now I wouldn’t want to do either, even though I still love animals.
I was happy to see this turtle today 🙂 It made for a lovely morning.
