Realizing I haven't posted for a while, I began looking through my photos for inspiration. Our life tends to follow the same pattern each day and the sameness doesn't seem worthy of posting.
Same old, same old can be boring but there is great comfort in that for me. I do admit the last couple of years have been a challenge for me and no doubt all of us. Now with the world situation growing more tense daily rituals are even more important to me to keep my sanity.
Traveling during retirement has always been a dream for us. We have had four major trips cancelled during these times. Without sounding like a spoiled child, I will stop beating that drum.
One morning while lacing my shoes for a walk, I spotted out the window a very large bird on our fence!
We often see turkey vultures flying, but not this close to our home. Though he's not the prettiest bird in the kingdom, we would all not be happy without these very interesting birds. Seeing him sent me on a search to learn more about him. I learned they really don't have a song, but will hiss if threatened! Their V patterned flight is quite noteworthy as they soar on thermals in search of carrion. I noticed no evidence as to why he chose our fence that morning. It's always exciting to see what critters pass our way, but I must admit this was quite a surprise!
