Always carry your phone. Always always always.

I'm always saying everyone needs to keep their phone on them or nearby. Not only because it's frustrating when you can't get a response to a text because the person keeps their phone halfway across the house, I'm mostly worried about seeing something cool and not getting a picture. I wanted to charge my phone yesterday while I went for a haircut, and thankfully I didn't see anything cool.

I was dumb to think I could take out the garbage and recycling this morning without my phone.

I SAW A DEER! I walked very slowly down the driveway and put the bins down as gently as possible. He flinched a little each time, but stayed put, munching away. I crept back inside, ran up the stairs, got my phone, and slowly approached.

I've been waiting a long time to see deer. Our neighbor said he saw a mama deer and two babies walk through his yard and ours (they're connected), and I know they're pretty common around here because whenever the trees have apples on them, the street's littered with half-eaten ones.

I managed to get six pictures total before he was off between a couple of other houses. What a fun start to the day.
