Not Going As Planned
(all photos taken today with my cell phone)
Just a quick thought this evening, day or night – where ever you are….
For the most part, things are going pretty good. The hardest part is giving up facebook, but I’m getting there. I’ll probably have to do that part longer – maybe through the end of the week.
My favorite place in the house is my deck…is it “in” the house? Well, it’s part of the house anyway. Sitting and watching the birds and wildlife is very relaxing. The hummingbirds have been fighting over the feeder in the photo. I really need to get another one – I have three at the moment, but it will have to wait til spring. Maybe two…I think we’ve actually got about a dozen hummingbirds visiting, but it’s hard to tell unless they are seen together…and they’re always chasing each other off.
We’re gonna have to do something about him. He keeps coming closer and closer to the house, and isn’t very leery of us. I don’t think he’s really causing any damage – yet. If he starts to burrow under the deck…he’s going to have to go. Almost every time I walked out onto the deck today, he was out there, and each time a little closer. One time, he was between the mint garden at the bottom of the deck steps, and the new garden/bird feeding station I put in. At least when he’s that close to the house, he does run.
2 moths/3 photos
Is this a swallowtailed moth? Looks too dark to me and the website says UK, but it’s the right shape, I think. Anyway, there was one on the screen door, then one flew up onto the door. The doors going out onto the deck are French doors, meaning only one side opens.
They need to be replaced eventually. But, it’s okay for now.
I got a new shelf put up in my “pantry”. I started it yesterday afternoon…cutting down two boards, gluing them together, then strapping them together. Then, this morning I screwed two pieces of wood to the underside, to stabilize them. I had to wait for my son to wake up, to put the L brackets and shelf up. Where I put the shelf is on the other side of his bedroom – on the other side of that wall is his bedroom. I didn’t want to wake him up, with the sound of the power drill and screws biting into the wood.
So, two parts of the detox I’m continuing is no tv and no facebook, just notifications. I need to keep up with that part. It’s not like I really spend a lot of time there, it just seems like it. I’ve got a lot of farm friends there, as well as “conspiracy theorist” friends, a couple family members/friends, school friends, and a few I went to church with a long time ago. So, a lot of like minded “friends” there. I’ve even got a few that have had the vaccine. But we don’t harp on each other, degrade each other, and what not. We may not all agree on the vaccine or other things, but we have other things in common.
I’ll keep you updated on how things are going!
hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
Sorry, this is funny!
