The Week In Seven Photos

The Week In Seven Photos

Often when I look back at the week, I try to concentrate on the simple enjoyments of life, but sometimes

the universe makes you look at things more seriously.

As the political season continues to go off the rails in the midst of the CDC warning this week concerning the Coronavirus, it felt like the quietest and safest place to go while recovering from a cold was out in nature where not many people venture to enjoy the birds during winter (there are swans and a sandhill crane in the distance).

You try to not live in fear of your surroundings, even though I worry often about what Harper encounters on her little paws with all the backyard and park traffic, but

with family members with serious health issues that make them vulnerable, we always take extra precautions during cold and flu season (we already have a supply of face masks, dry hands from so much hand washing and Harper refusing to accept she needs her paws wiped constantly).  It’s time to be even more aware and to stock up on a few extra supplies for everyone and 

hopefully there will not be any fighting over the last peanut or Pop-Tarts and

we can be thankful for the quiet days in nature and a well stocked library and watchlist.

  1. A lovely collection, and Harper with the raised paw is a winner!
    It does seem the world is in bad shape according to the news. Thank goodness a cold and quiet lake can offer a place of cheer in all the gloom. That, and a movie watchlist! Caught up with “Rampage” the other day, and loved it. A peaceful science and nature documentary with Professor Dwayne.
    Enjoy the weekend!

    • Thank you!🙂 It was another scary week in the world with what appears now to be no let-up in sight soon, so Harper and I will be escaping regularly to all our wonderful parks and lakes, but she may have to accept wearing little boots! Enjoy the weekend and I wonder if there’s time for The Rock to reconsider running for president!😁

  2. I hear you! Between the politics and the Coronavirus, I feel as though I am worn to an absolute frazzle. We are doing many of the same things that you are doing. Wonderful, wonderful top picture with the swans and the cranes in the background. Also, got a kick out of that squirrel with the turkey. Take care! Be well!

    • Thank you!🙂 It was a surprise to see the cranes early return and that squirrel tried everything, but the turkey was not budging. We’ve been following the politics and Coronavirus coverage closely and each day brings more questions, concerns and worries. At the beginning of the new year I was exhausted just thinking about the upcoming election year and it’s really difficult to watch now with this crisis unfolding.

    • As the news concerning the virus worsens every day it’s getting more difficult not to think about it as you go about the day and I do appreciate even more escaping to the calm of nature away from the crowds. Take care!
