An unexpected post

Unexpected because I have the time to write it.

I finally decided that my quest to write every day wasn't necessarily a good one. I was writing simply for the sake of writing, not for the content. I won't be reduced to writing 'filler' posts. At least that's what I'm saying today. I'm still going to write regularly, and it will probably be pretty mundane, but that's fine. It's me. A little of this and a little of that.

It's Saturday morning before work. It's the only day of the week I set an alarm for, and it's usually set for 5:45, giving me plenty of time to leave the house by 7:30. I like having a lot of time in the morning. I never sit around, but I never have to rush. I sometimes have a little computer time before I leave. This morning I checked my mail and my first client e-mailed that she couldn't make her 8:00 appointment. So here I am with leisure time! I'm so glad I read my mail.

Yesterday there was a huge (I guess they're all huge) turkey vulture drinking from the bird bath on my deck. Fascinating because of the size and unnaturalness of it. I was telling my neighbor the story while doing her hair and she told me three of them were on a neighbor's roof earlier this week. Not good. I've heard of flocks of them taking up residence in an area and causing a big, bad problem because of their big bad poop. Go away big bad birds! In other exciting animal news, I watched a pair of squirrels climb down the corner of my house and try to jump onto a window ledge. Over and over. Who needs TV? All I need is to sit at my kitchen table.

Hope it's a great Saturday in your world. I'm off to beautify my clients!

Good Morning Cheryl. Hope your Saturday was a good one.

It's goose poop in my world. Big ole' mean birds.

We have wild Turkeys here and they do the same thing. The city is thinking of eh hem... taking them out so to speak. Evidently they cannot be relocated.

I am with you on the nature channel. Much more entertaining and peaceful.

Bless your day and I hope it's a grand one.

Vultures and squirrels....oh my!

Usually, vultures (soaring birds) roost around areas where there are lakes. Is there a lake nearby?

We have wetlands a few blocks away and a sediment control pond sort of behind my house, but I've lived here 17 years and never seen a turkey vulture. Geese and ducks and lots of red-winged blackbirds, but no vultures.

Probably a good thing you haven't seen any vultures near the sediment control pond, since they tend to feast on carrion and smaller animals, even some house pets!
