First day back to work after knocking my noggin around a couple of days ago. Bill will drive me today, and I appreciate that and feel guilty simultaneously. No earth-shattering revelations but stitches came out yesterday, and a few thoughts rolling around in there about why some of us are more stubborn than others, why I seem to have inherited a healthy dose of contrariness to complicate most human interactions, why it seems so all-important to get back to as normal a routine as possible, and whether there's any way around the six-week limit on BOTH cycling AND gym.
A gift came in the mail yesterday, and I will write more about that later, but just a thank you to dp for now. Books are such treasures, as is hand-written communication. Meanwhile, take yourself on over to her site. The story this morning is both funny, intriguing, and one more example of her endless supply of absolutely unique happenings (or her quick eye to take note of them).
And a few pictures from the last two days:
A house sparrow (quick identification with new book, but fairly sure) in the East garden. Love the textures.A Winter Wren, maybe?
For conclusive identification, have to take better pictures, but love the patterns.
Yet another crow silhouette.
Ball game with Black Jack on Sunday. Thanks to Oregon Sunshine for kind tips. Will be in touch soon!
Give it to me.. now! Please?
West garden feeder.
House finch - male?
Sky, looking West, from the front of our house, yesterday, after arriving home from stitch-taking out, TWO LARGE lattes, and a trip to Office Depot, to buy desk organization stuff. Pictures one of these days of desk. Gotta go. Just thanks to kind readers and all the good people around me.
