Wednesday and I'm off to town. Temperature is +2.5 but it's suppose to be a bit wet I think. When I was out roaming around yesterday morning as the sun was coming up, a conversation I had recently with a friend came to mind, the jest of it was that if you could get out of bed with your own strength and breath you should consider yourself fortunate. As she remarked it sounds corny but... true. There I was at the edge of the lake listening to all of nature and looking at a beautiful view - things that some people never know or never will. How lucky I am. So today if things start to close in on me (wed is usually a bitch), I'm going to try to visualize that view and those sounds. From 6:30 am to 10:30 am I was out 3 times just walking, listening and seeing all that was there.
I'm beginning to think that the best idea would be for me to put blackout curtains in my kitchen windows. All those birds and activity is just too distracting sometimes. The Goldfinches, Evening Grosbeaks and Red Polls were all back, haven't seen them for a while. Made cookies before lunch but most of the time my head was at the window with my camera. As they were baking I kept thinking what's wrong with those, dawned on me later - forgot to put the white sugar in. Larry commented they were a bit dry - oh well guess that happens once in awhile! It did finally start raining by lunch time, so that was my signal to get moving in the house. Spent about an hour on research then on to some spring cleaning - some ceilings/walls, etc. Since they are calling for rain most of the week I should get a lot of that done along with the editing.
The joy of early morning.
