My Camera And I Went For A Walk

The weather hasn't been so good for walking lately. Oh I suppose I could have put on a rain coat and my boots and an umbrella, but I didn't. So today even though 

the clouds looked ominous I grabbed my camera and headed out the door.

I wish I could capture the songs of the the birds. 

So Peaceful, I practice deep breathing when  I'm walking, if I remember. In through the nose hold it, hold it..... out through the mouth.

Lots of rain means lots of moss. So soft.

Oh the stories that old truck could tell if only it could talk.....

I'm suppose to be using my cane when I'm walking but it's a little difficult to do that and take pictures too. I suppose maybe there's a little rebellion there too. I just don't feel like I need a cane, but PT folks think I do. The balance just isn't there like it use to be.  I haven't fallen yet, but I don't want there to be a first time either.

There are two of these very small, abandoned nests. I enlarged it but I'm sure thinking it's a hummingbirds nest. I remember one winter at Desert Pools in Desert Hot Springs, a momma hummingbird built her nest in the corner of the chain link fence around the pickle ball court.... and she would dive bomb the players if she felt they were to close to her nest. We got to see those eggs hatch and see the tiny babies. So fun.  I tried to bring up one of the pictures but I'm thinking I took them off and there on a CD now.  I'm going to be putting out my hummingbird feeders this weekend.

Just walking along enjoying the quietness and the day

This old barn is on a cement foundation

I have no idea what this is. Just a pretty weed.

Big bad clouds sure make for beautiful sunsets.

Tomorrow promises to be a nice day with no rain



I have the pillows on my glider and a pot of pretty flowers beside it. Finally found a cover to protect it from the rain. It doesn't quite fit but it does the job. I'm hoping to pull it off this weekend and enjoy some more outdoor time reading and gliding. :)

I've been waiting for this for a week and it finally arrived yesterday. A blogger friend of mine, Nancy, has nothing but wonderful things to say about it and my friend Neila uses hers all the time. I'm still reading the manual, a little apprehensive about it. I was always afraid of my grandma's old pressure cooker. But this seems like a very simple appliance to use and will certainly cut the cook time. I may get rid of my rice cooker now, but not my crock pot. I need that for potlucks.
Tomorrow is a very special day so I will be posting again, unusual for me but oh so worth it. So until then.....
Bye For Now
