Last week I called myself a “Crazy Plant Lady”, but after an immensely busy and stressful week I’ve decided that my state of mind has nothing to do with plants. And considering the invective pouring from my mouth, I sure as hell ain’t no lady. So that leaves me just plain ‘crazy’.
And I am. Or if I’m not quite there yet, I’ll certainly be arriving there in short order.
I won’t bore you with the events of the week, except to say it’s a wee bit chaotic to have two real estate properties listed while simultaneously trying to arrange the construction of a new house a thousand kilometres away, pack without messing up our current house so we can show it to prospective buyers, and still carve out some time for my ‘real’ job of writing.
This is all just a long-winded way to say I’m writing this very late on Tuesday night; I’m flying out of Calgary early Wednesday morning (I’ll be in the air by the time you read this); and I don’t have time to write my usual blog post.
But I’ve got birds.
I shot these video clips through our front window earlier this summer before things got quite so hectic, and now I’m sharing them so we can all take a long slow breath, relax, and watch the birds enjoying our little pond and waterfall. (View the video fullscreen if you can – the birds are pretty tiny.)
(The music is from the “Reflections: Songbirds At Sunrise” album, and the track title is “New England Spring”. Thanks to Reflections for allowing the music to be used on YouTube, and thanks to YouTube for paying the artist from the ads that appear on this video!)
P.S. I likely won’t have internet access until this evening, so I’ll check in then – “talk” to you later! 🙂
