Cee has issued her challenge questions for this 12th week of getting to know our bloggy friends a little better. I’m not sure I have answers for all of these, but I’ll give it a go.
1. What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life? This one depends on the moment. I have many songs I love, but it depends on my mood as to which one seems the most appropriate at the time. I’m cheating, I know, but I cannot list specifics here.
2.What is your favorite time of day? In my youth I’m certain I would have said late night. Now, however, I love the early dawn hours when it’s quiet and I can sit with my coffee, my iPad and my camera and just diddle around. In between opening the door so the dogs and Lily can run in and out frequently.
3. What is your favorite part of the town/city you live in. And what City and Country do you live? We live outside a small little town, really a village. I think my favorite place in the summer is my yard, most specifically my front deck. Although there are little rivers around, and a big one or two also, that I love where we sometimes go to walk and take pictures. I love that it is scenic and country and quiet and relaxed. I live in the Klamath Basin, in south-central Oregon, USA.
4. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? Taking pictures, playing with words, walking with my dogs, spending time with my family and friends. Going new places with people I love with time to wander and camera in hand. Then blogging about it.
Those are the questions for this week, so now I’ll share some pictures I took a day or so ago.
A Stellar Jay looking for seeds in the pine cone. Taken through my window so it’s not as sharp as I’d like but when I open to the door to go out – they fly away. Silly silly birds. It was too cold out there to stand and wait for them to come back, so I wandered a bit and took random photos of random objects.
Frogs #1 and #2 normally spend the winter in the garage, but this past fall was not normal and I didn’t get my normal fall chores done. Which will, of course, mean more work to be done in the spring. Except I’m not at all certain spring will get here before June, because winter seems to have decided to settle in. More inches of the white stuff last night, and the forecast says “snow”. I did take some pictures this morning, but they’re still in my camera, awaiting another day.
And the beginnings of a wasp nest last summer which was sprayed to deter the critters because they seem to like to sneak in open doors and harass people. Another job for the spring – old wasp nest removal.
I think I’m going to be busy this spring. Volunteers? I have a nice deck and wine, or coffee, or tea, or soda, or water. Or beer. Chocolate? I have that too.
