I have been caught up in real life away from the camera. There have been a few things that were a high priority for me to watch and also took some time to plan out the rest of this week. This time of the year gets chaotic for me. My wife's Birthday is Sunday and well finish the Christmas stuff . The Christmas stuff is not so bad this year for shopping or wrapping . Yes I (and my daughter) have a few odds and ends to pick up for my wife but well we are going inland to spend a few days with family so than means packing and baking bread the whole lot. Plus this year we decided to get our passports so that was also something else to fit into the week. Not sure when we will use them we just wanted to get them now rather than when we want to use it. After all where we hope to move is not terribly far from Canada so that is a possibility. Anywho I am rambling.
I decided to venture out this morning for some Nature Therapy to help keep me sane. While I did get a few shots that I think I will like I will save those for a bit later in the week. I had to laugh while I was sitting there waiting on the park to open I saw a little brown job land on the ground. I decided to dig the camera out of the backpack and see what it was.
A Hermit Thrush. This guy had me chuckling because while it was not sure what I was it was trying to intimidate me by running towards me....Stopping and Puffing its feathers up to look larger. Then it would look at me for a few seconds and run back to the safety of the bush . It did this a couple of times so I backed up. The next time it did the I'm Big and Aggressive bit the little guy stopped in the sunlight for me. Sweet and YES.
By now I was kneeling but I did think about laying on the ground until I looked at the frost covered mud I was kneeling in and decided that was a nope rope. So kneeling was as low as I was going.
This was one of the looks it gave me before darting back to the bush.
I am hoping to post a few shots of todays Kitchen projects. A Strawberry Cake and also my variation of Popeyes Chicken Sandwich but making them mini sandwiches.
