This year, we managed to drive away the robin who kept depositing sticks and straw on top of the air conditioner. The unit is next to our bedroom and there are places you don’t want birds to nest. Another spot we weren’t keen on them living was in the PVC we use to hang our garden hoses. We missed one.
I was able to take a picture of her sitting on her three eggs.
She chose a nice spot. I asked her nearest neighbor how he felt about it.
He had no comment, but pointed me to the beauty of his pond.
(I like this angle of the lily since full on, they look like they are made of plastic.)
And, as it happens, that one glorious unreal stretch of publication news and prize winning was short-lived, but so wonderful. I’m still mildly warm with the afterglow…or is it the weather? I’m not complaining, just saying it’s a bit warm. I’m anxiously waiting on the red lilies to bloom. In the interim, I have baby-pea pods and the amaryllis to admire.
I want to thank Mary Akers and Gina Detwiler for continuing the write-ins at Spot Coffee on Wednesday mornings. They inspire me so much and the consistency helps me focus on writing new material. I now need something to inspire me to edit. Anything besides deadlines to contests – the only thing I have right now and that just makes my heart thump and palms sweat, which is not conducive to thoughtful rewriting, but it’s all I got. Ah well, I suppose a writer is never truly happy – at least for long. Thank God, Goddess and Spirit of the Universe that I have amazing people in my life to connect with the rest of the time. I’m grateful for you! (Yes, I’m talking about YOU!)
Thank you for stopping by and for the read!
