Ruffled Feathers

I opened my blinds and looked out my kitchen window this morning. Across the yard was a female cardinal just sitting on a branch looking around. Something about her attitude drew my attention and I took some photos of her. I went about my business but my mind kept going back to that bird.


I realized I wanted to be like that bird. I wanted to just park myself outdoors and do nothing except look around. So I went out onto my front porch to sit in my rocking chair awhile. One look told me how long it had been since I had done that. The chairs were full of dirt, mold and insects. As I wiped one of the chairs clean, I began to feel a real sense of accomplishment.

I rocked gently back and forth looking around the yard and felt at peace. Nothing needed my immediate attention and I was totally relaxed. And then along came a spider…!!!

I’m safely back in my house now.  🙂

Hope everyone has a wonderful day and it’s full of nice surprises.

  1. It was a beautiful morning yesterday. Until I was attacked (ok, exaggeration) by a huge (just a little bit of an exaggeration) spider and chased (ok, huge exaggeration) inside!!

    And yes, it does feel amazing to accomplish something, no matter how small.
