Good Intentions/Walk Today

Last night when everyone had gone to bed and the house was quiet I had good intentions to get up in the morning, write a list and get some extras done.

I slept in. Woke up when hubby when to work and the next thing I know I turn and look at the clock and it is almost half past eight! That's an hour later than I usually get up. I try to get out for a walk by half past eight so it's still nice and quiet out and a little cool. I hopped out of bed, had some caffeine and was out of the door in less than half an hour. That tells you how much fussing I do in the morning - not a lot. My hair goes up, teeth brushed, quick wipe over and that's it lol. No make-up, no hair styling.

I ran an errand first and made it to my walk before there were too many people about. I never did write a list. Sigh. All my good intentions went out the window. I spent too much time looking at this beautiful bird, watching it glide across the water. Such elegant creations! I ended up daydreaming too much and not getting anything but essentials done.


Ah well there is always tomorrow! Maybe I'll write that list tonight while the good intention is there is my head.

  1. I'm amazed at how graceful such large birds are. That's about how I get ready in the morning.

    1. Extremely graceful. I was watching as it glided across the water. It would raise on leg up and almost float across the water.

  2. Beautiful photo of the heron. I write lists and promptly misplace them :) When the weather is nice, it is more important to enjoy every moment. x Karen

    1. Thank you! While I was out today I was thinking of the weather and how I should enjoy it while I can. It's more difficult to get out walking when there are several inches of snow on the ground!

  3. Sometimes, lists are not important. Watching a bird take flight, is.

  4. I doubt very much that listmaking is as good for the soul as watching such a thing of beauty...lol-x-

  5. A list you can make anytime, but watching such a majestic flight is not an everyday occurrence.

    1. It was really majestic. I was watching for a while and they seem to glide on water - so delicate.
