It’s been a great day with the ponies, but the humidity wore me out. Somehow my creative juices aren’t working very well today. I’ve got an idea here and there for my photo of the day, but just too lazy to pull it together.
Looking out my window I saw a new thief working at the bird feeders. Mind you, I’ve had this feeder for years and never have I seen a squirrel do this. Somehow he figured out how to open up the top and serve himself.
Below the feeders, the doves were having a social conversation.
I wandered down to the docks to see what I could find. The winds had picked up after yesterday’s storm, keeping the good birds well tucked away. Although this red canoe was laying forgotten by the stairs.
Mother Goose is still sitting on her nest. I keep telling her it’s time to give up. But she is determined to get her eggs to hatch. Three other geese families showed up wanting dinner, so I wandered back up to the house and threw out some corn. Didn’t take long for a new squirrel to show up and dine on the goodies.
Everything is so brilliantly green here due to all of the rain this year. There were several small tornadoes in the storm that passed through last night. We were quite fortunate at the manor, and nothing happened. But at the barn, not 100 yards from where Remy sleeps there was a light one, taking down a number of branches and trees.
Truly a guardian angel was watching the horses. Hope you enjoyed this short meandering, and hope you can take a little bit of time out of your busy day to meander as well.
In solitude the mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself.
