Taking Time To Smell The Roses

On her Facebook page, Kerri Thoreson posts: "Another full day but I took time to 'smell the roses' or more accurately watch swallows collect mud in the puddles left by our rains of recent days. As a girl we called these mud daubers but they're barn swallows who build their nests from the mud they collect in their beaks and on their feet and legs. This puddle in front of Seltice Elementary just north of the railroad tracks on Chase Road is one of their favorites every spring."

Question: Tell us of a time this week when you took time to "smell the roses"?
