We had a nice walk today. It was bright and sunny and not too cold. We renewed our pass to the metroparks on the other side of the state and had a nice walk around the nature centre. We got there early so there weren't too many people around at first. Later on it got a bit busier, but it was nice to be out on the trails to walk. There were a few spots of ice, but nothing we couldn't walk around.
Not too much growing but there was a lot of little birds around. I'll post some photos when I sort them out. Husband likes to go here as the birds land on your hand and take peanuts and seeds from you. Rather fun.
There were a few Sandhill Cranes around. They are year long residents at the park, though not many of them usually stay in our state for winter. I suppose it's because they have plentiful food. People aren't supposed to feed the cranes - there are signs telling you not to - as they become aggressive. They are fun to watch though. They aren't at all scared of people.
I have made myself a list of things I want to get accomplished this week. I am hoping that seeing it in print will give me the motivation needed. There are things I really need to get done around the house.
I find lists are very helpful and really add to the sense of achievement as you cross them out. I've done one for today as, when I thought about it, there are several small things I'd like to do that I might forget if they're not written down. xxReplyDelete
I do better when I have lists. I don't know how to explain it but sometimes it's just the getting going on them that is the problem.Delete
It looks like a lovely place from the photos and I loved the video of the sandhill crane showing off! Good luck with the To Do list! I need to make one, myself!ReplyDelete
The Sandhill Cranes are really funny to watch. They can be quite demonstrative.Delete
Sending all hugs. I have lists and I'm considering making lists of lists. I hope that you get things moving, and all you can do is your best. Those pics are AMAZING! And what a stunning video.ReplyDelete
I need to start making lists of jobs that need doing. It will make Tony notice them without me nagging.ReplyDelete
My husband loves lists. I must just start one for him lol as there are things that need to be done around the house that I can't do!Delete
