You get sunrises and sunrises, but this one this morning was particularly impressive: a little bit of everything. It was supposed to rain yesterday evening with Sahara sand and all the works, but there were only a few drops and it gave up.
I was out and about yesterday afternoon and visited the chickens and company. The black swan pair now have a family to look after and they went for a walk with their three chicks following. It is wonderful to watch them. Mum and dad are always close together and the chicks in between. I am surprised to see the babies are more white, but I suppose with time the feathers will change to black.
Every time I take a wheelie in my chair in this direction I discover something new at the pond. I had never see this duck before. They certainly have some interesting birds. It is a wonderful place which is mainly a stable complete with horses. They added the chickens and now sell their fresh eggs. Then they made a pond and the ducks and geese arrived. There is always something new to see. Luckily I have my zoom lens with me that cuts out the wire around the enclosure and gives me a close up. I was not really intending to visit the animals, but just popped by to see what the black swans and their babies were doing, and I got hooked and eventually came home with 80 photos on my camera and another 10 on my mobile phone.
I also had quite a few challenges to complete yesterday evening for WordPress. Ok, I do not have to do them, but anything combined with photos arouses my interest. I decided to leave the photos to the last and then I soon discovered that my online photo programme was playing up again. I was eventually finished at 10.30 pm with everything, including my MS injection. I usually have everything done by 8.30 pm at the latest.
I cut through the cemetery on my way home and noticed that the ornamental Japanese cherry trees were still blossoming, but they will soon be finished.
And what are we doing today? It will be a shopping morning, no big deal, and in the afternoon my physio terapist will be paying a visit with more torture exercises. They are usually exercises to get me moving. I have now developed a good system. I combine doing them with working at the computer and cooking. I can practice standing and sitting when my computer is going through various scans before closing down, and whilst I am preparing food I can do my balancing act. I now even risk a few steps without anything for support, but very carefully.
I will now wish you all a good start to the week and may it be a good one. If it is cold and snowing, remember it will eventually go away. Otherwise may the weather be with you. I noticed some interesting cloud formations yesterday on my walk.
