Guess what I saw in the parking lot at work? A deer!
Just past those trees, there is a frozen river and on the other side of the river there is a major city park that has some bush. I’m guessing that is where that guy normally hangs out. I sure hope he goes back and doesn’t end up on the busy streets!
It is Saturday night before a costume event and I can’t get my butt off the couch and get things organized (lunch made, picnic basket emptied of UFO knitting so I can get the lunch packed in it, petticoat hooks checked, costume pieces gathered and ironed….)
I’m too tired.
I was out on an outing with my seniors on Friday. It was a fun but tiring trip to the park.
Followed by a wild night of tummy troubles for me and the dawning conclusion that puppy may not be feeling well herself (vet booked for Monday). Crap crap expensive crap.
On top of all that, I watched my kid start moving his junk out of my house into his fiancés home (which he will be moving into at the end of the month after his wedding). I’m feeling nostalgic. (Cried at home movies last night because I missed my babies).
So, is it my fault that I am procrastinating by writing a blog post about procrastinating? Tomorrow I will be writing about how much fun I had but I’m tired because I was up at 6:00 am trying to get everything done…. Oh stupid me….
There is a crisp nip in the air this morning. Honestly, I’m not a fan of extreme heat and spend most of the summer moving from one air conditioner to another-a fact that has become more true since menopause became a fact of my life-so I am relieved.
As the summer heads to its end, I have been noticing that the Canadian geese have begun flight school for the young ones. They fly in formation but not very high and not heading south so I assume it is just practice runs as they look for farmers fields with grain on the ground. In a week or two, our man made lake will be loaded every evening with geese (and ducks) that are grouping up and getting ready to head south. The geese head south. I have no idea what the ducks do. I guess they head south too because I sure don’t see them waddling around my yard in February.
This past spring, we had a momma duck and her babies in my flower bed. She runs a tight ship! Those babies stuck to her like glue! So close that at first you can’t tell it is more than one bird.
But as she moves to get away from us, we got a glimpse of fluffy sweetness.
There they go….a few more feet and they are in the lake!
During a particularly nasty rain storm, the hubby was out barbecuing. I suggested he take the umbrella from the patio furniture to protect himself and keep the barbecue from cooling off. Then I suggested that it was a parasol and he should strike a pose….
Good sport eh?
