I woke up with the aid of an alarm clock this morning. To get the garbage bins to the road in time for pickup. I really needed the help to get up. I think I might be getting lazy. It might be time to get back in the habit of early to bed, early to rise. The Covid-19 self-isolation routine has progressed to late nights and late mornings.
It was so lovely seeing the sun this morning, so I pulled my rocker into the kitchen and watched nature while I ate breakfast. Clouds rolled in the sun peaked out every so often and when it did, the trees across the river lit up like silver. It was incredible to watch. I took some photos but don’t think they captured the beauty.
By the way, I normally take the garbage out the night before but the heavy winds would have knocked the bins and garbage around the neighbourhood!
Funny enough, I found myself picking up trash that blew over from my neighbours recycle bin, during my afternoon walk! Stuff was stuck in tree branches and long grass. I followed a Doritos chip bag down the hill towards the river. In retrieving the bag, I noticed the pathway through the forest to the river was finally free of snow and ice.
This is one of my favourite spots and the place I like to swim in the summer. We had lots of rain yesterday which brought the water level up higher than normal and it looks so lovely! I love to sit here and watch the geese and ducks, the beavers and otters and enjoy nature.
Today was also an interesting cloud day. Do you see the faces in the clouds in these two photos?
