Monday and Wide Awake.......
We are seeing sunshine and it looks really great. I haven't become too warm yet so it is a welcomed sight. I shared a similar shot of the garden shed on one of my posts but this one shows the glare that was happening a few days ago. The cupola is one more thing on my list to be repaired. In this case the thing will probably have to be totally replaced as I used cheap wood on it when I made it back when the shed was first built.
When I discovered I was throwing away photos because I couldn't see them clearly on iphoto and on the screen of the laptop, I discovered this number. I edited this photo a little by lightening it and discovered the bird is in midair. I don't know if he is coming or going but he is in suspension for sure. I can see one claw is hooked on the one horizontal board so he may be just coming into the feeder. I am glad I noticed that I needed to get back onto my older computer with the better editing program.
Another shot of one of the bluebirds that visited the feeder last week. I really had to pay attention to be able to see that bird in the picture as he does blend in with house. The bird house is overdue for a remodel and repair job.
While going through the toy cupboard I saw that I have my small car collection piled inside without any organization. I think I will get some boxes to sort them and place them in there with some better conditions. I really don't know why I have the two Cadillacs. My grey cells dig up the experience when we were in Kansas City in a mall where they sell everything about cars. I am thinking that they were on a 2 for 5 bucks sale which meant it would be foolish not to buy just one of them. I guess it is a his and her set of cars in my collection. When I was a kid I remember seeing those tail fins on the back fenders of cars. Our neighbor to the north had a plymouth car with the fancy tail fins on it, making it look like a bird or spaceship. The car was a salmon pink color which was popular by car manufacturers back then. I remember a John Horton who had a two door hard top Ford Fairlane, 1957. in which they dove taking their trips out west to see they grown kids.
I was awakened this morning at 5:47 to come to work today. I accepted it regardless as to how asleep that I still was at the time. I set the alarm for 6:15 in case I didn't wake back up to go in to school today. I didn't go back to sleep but anyway, here I am sitting in a high school math classroom.
The teacher's daughter is ill and has been for a few days. Our grandson in Illinois picked up a stomach flu from somewhere out there in the crowd. We have not checked in on him today but will this evening. It is a scary time for parents of young children and I guess for older people like me too.
I hope everyone has a good day and thank you for hanging around my place today.
