You lazy fool, look at an ant. Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two.
I knew exactly where to go. My husband was busy doing something in the other room, so I quietly slipped out the front door. I went to precisely the spot that I had noticed them yesterday. I peered into the corner and began to carefully track their path. It was easy at first, cuz the line was visible from my vantage point. But, as they moved into the grass, it became a wee bit trickier to maintain the lead I had on them.
I persevered though....following them through blades of grass and over miniature stick bridges that they had made from the twigs that had fallen on the ground. Just when I was sure that I had found their castle, they would surprise me and appear on the other side continuing their journey to their final destination. I carefully tip-toed beside their trail and had just found their connecting location to a swift incline up the tree. I stared up into the branches, standing on my tippy toes, looking higher and higher into the tree trying to figure out where they had gone.....when all of a sudden a loud deep voice came booming from across the yard, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?"
It was my sweet husband. I guess he wasn't as busy as I thought he was, cuz he came out and had been watching me for a time. Seems that I might have looked a little bit "unstable" to the casual onlooker as I followed my creature trails. Oops.....might have carried this verse a little too far.......chuckle...
