I had a goal for today and it was to clean out my chest of drawers and pack some bags to take to the local Goodwill. But before I did that, I wanted to take a walk in the freshly fallen snow we had overnight.
We got less than an inch.
I had hoped for more, but am glad for this. Also glad it’s getting a little colder. It’s been pretty difficult walking in the slush and mud and my Sorel snow boots. Now the ground is nice and crunchy again.
I saw my husband with George, filling the bird feeders.
George has his ID tied on with a twisty tie because it kept coming off. He’s so stylin’, isn’t he?
I wanted to look at these photos as soon as I got in from the walk. But I knew that if I did, I’d be on the computer fiddling with them, and then working on a post and before I knew it, it would be lunchtime. And I knew that if I didn’t force myself, I’d never get done my one goal for the day.
So I cleaned out my chest of drawers. It didn’t take nearly as long as I had anticipated, and I have several bags ready for the Goodwill.
And then I opened up my photos. And I think this is my favorite.
Or maybe this one.
Sometimes I wish I had bought the 105mm macro. And I think that someday, I may trade in the trusty 60mm that I’m using now and get that lens.
But until then, I am happy with what I have.
In the background, you can see the the pad I use for lying on the ground in the snow to take pictures. I don’t feel like getting my pants nice and wet, and this old woven beach roll-up from Two’s Company works great.
And it’s waterproof.
And more fashionable than carrying around a tarp.
And you know how fashion conscious I am when I'm walking around this property.
