Backyard and Lazy Days

Some days you just need to unplug and do what you want to do instead of what you feel is needed or must get done because no one else is going to do it for you. Sometimes its actual adulting but sometimes when you think about all the stuff you MUST get done, you realize you created the stupid list and will it really end the world if you don’t do a load of laundry right now?

I’m usually my own victim of creating too much stuff to do and then I swing too far the opposite direction but frankly I’d rather have a messy house than a pissy family. So long story short, sometimes I compromise with myself and edge out time to ‘fiddle’ or such or go play with the camera. After a series of misadventures on Saturday, Sunday saw me in my pajamas well past lunch and trying different camera settings and such in the backyard. Who knew Wisconsin birds were such brave little flying super models?!

I was working on macro pictures on the woodpile next to my birdfeeders and much to my delight, they (birds, not wood you sillies) kept sneaking up on me to check out what I was doing. I got such enjoyment paying hide and seek with the chickadees that hours flew by only broken by the dog who would trounce over and give me a nudge to make sure I didn’t forget he was there and make sure I was still breathing-probably in that order as we almost missed feeding time. I jest but there is no bigger actor or drama queen then a Labrador at past their dinner time. So below for your amusement are some flying feather hams and sparkly wood. I have shuffled them into the Wildlife section as well.
