I'm up early this a.m. and there is enough of a chill in the air that I'm wearing a shawl. I love mornings like this. Other than the birds, it is quiet outside. Fletch is still asleep. Tyg has come in to eat and is back outside. Best of all there are no new emails in my work in-box! My hope is for another easy work day with time to knit/stitch/work out/take a walk/etc.
Yesterday I finally managed to get back to the trail along the canal for a nice hour long walk. There were people out running, walking, biking, but the trail was not crowded at all. There are still plenty of geese babies getting the lay of the land (and water) and these cute duck babies:
I almost missed them they were so quiet. No peeps at all. Then I saw this guy stretching his back legs:
It just cracked me up to see his hind legs stretched out like that. I did see a Blue Heron flying low over the water, but he/she was too far away to get a good picture. I watched but never saw where he/she landed.
Wildflowers (and others) are beginning to bloom along the path:
There were some folks on paddle boards and I also saw a two person kayak. It was a beautiful day and it felt so great to finally take a mid-day walk again.
Yesterday also saw the Hellebore Hitchhiker finally getting some attention. A couple more teeth were added last night.
Too busy to photograph on that tablecloth, but you get the idea. The plan is to knit on this some more today as well as pick out yarn for a new pair of socks. Can't go too long without socks on the needles!
On the reading front I'm about halfway through Wild Game the next "Read With Me" selection. It's a quick read, but some of it leaves me thinking "Really?" Some (ok, much) of the behavior is so foreign to me.
Well that wraps it up for me on this early Wednesday morning. Linking up with Kat for another Unraveled Wednesday.
