I told my sister that Lucy has been quiet the past few days. I think it's a combination of cooler weather, gray skies, and exhaustion from watching and hearing the boys come and go in the yard while framing the greenhouse.
I also told her that the Johnsons' African grey, Olivia, died Friday.
She said, "You didn't tell Lucy, did you? She knew her, you know."
No, we didn't tell Lucy.
