It has been awhile since I posted anything other than a book review or an interview. I’ve thought about posting something, anything, but haven’t gotten around to it. I am trying to balance work life, with home life, and writing life. With the pandemic, it has all rolled into one, and the lines have blurred.
Since the end of March, I’ve been working from home. I don’t mind it. The commute is short. I don’t have to get up as early, and I can wear whatever I want. But I miss my co-workers, going out for lunch to my favourite places, and a few other things.
I am grateful though that I live in a rural area. In the summer, I spent my lunch hour in the garden. This fall, taking pictures of the birds visiting the feeders brings me peace, and the chickadees are now feeding from my hand.
So, while I’ve procrastinated with all things to do with writing, I’ve been enjoying nature and recharging my soul.
It has been a few weeks since I have participated in this particular photo challenge. I love this week’s prompt and found a coupld of photos taken last fall. If you want to join click here for the instructions.
So many opportunities for great pictures when you look up.
Sophie is ready and waiting. It would be a huge mistake for any bird to look for food in this bird house.
I was on my lunch hour and had just finished feeding the birds as I walked around the park. I still had about half a ziplock baggie of birdseed and was carrying it in my hand. These wild turkeys saw what I had and headed right for me. While I didn’t mind hand-feeding chickadees, downy woodpeckers, and white breasted nuthatches, I was not about to hand-feed these boys. I quickly dumped the bag and they went after the seed allowing me to pass. I would not make that mistake again, and the next time I came across the wild turkeys, I hid the bag inside my jacket.
I have missed this photo challenge the last couple of weeks so I made sure to post tonight.
Here are the rules for this week’s photo challenge:
So… this week, for the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge, I’d like to challenge you to post a photo (or several) with the themeClimate Change.
I hope you don’t find this topic too difficult or intimidating. It can be anything – your imagination is the only limit! (And I know you guys are a creative lot!)
If you feel you need to write something to accompany the picture, please do so, but you can also just let the visuals tell the story.
Iceberg off the east coast of Newfoundland in the last week of July 2017.
When I first spotted this iceberg, we were in our car driving along the coast and it was just a little white speck in the ocean. We got a closer look at it as the road we were on brougth us into a small town closer to the edge of the Atlantic and there it was.
It has been a while since I participated in Cee’s FOTD challenge. And seeing the photo of the crocuses in her post reminded me of my spring flower photos.
This winter has been a long one, and it seems weekly weather statements, watches, and warnings has become the norm. Right now we are under a special weather statement for some high winds tomorrow. Anyway, I can’t wait for spring and since it is still a couple of months away, I thought I’d share some of these spring flower pictures from a few years ago.
