The Week In Seven Photos

Some days I’m not sure what I know, but this week I definitely know how wonderful it was to enjoy a Starbucks white chocolate mocha once again.

I’m not sure how I’ve lived all these years without knowing how much I like olive loaf and that it’s possible to learn new things while grocery shopping.

Another fact I know is that having six baby woodchucks

living under our deck with Harper roaming around is not a good idea, even if they are eating all the weeds I’ve been avoiding.

Luckily we can stay indoors this 90 degree weekend enjoying the wonderful return of Premier League football and I know how excited I’ll be to see Harry Kane on the field with Tottenham today against Manchester United.

I also know that it’s ok to ask for seconds,

that I never tire of seeing the cormorant’s blue eyes and

that whatever chaos is swirling around your head it’s best to remain calm.

I obviously don’t know how to count to seven after taking hundreds of photos of the eagle and blue jays, but

I do know that a good philosophy in life is knowing whatever life throws at me, I’m ducking so it hits someone else!

  2. That picture of Harper and Baby Yoda is priceless. By the way…you inspired me to buy a Baby Yoda for my New York daughter. She’s a big fan of “The Mandalorian.” Figured she could use a quarantine buddy.

  3. That’s a pretty good seven count, and after a coffee and before a glass of something good!
    Great action photos, and that eagle is staying pretty calm. Very cute backyard companions there.
    I might watch Harry Kane and team, if only to see if Kane completes 90 minutes! I haven’t adjusted to watching without the crowd noise, but the piped cheering seems odd when you can see empty stands.
    Enjoy the warm weather!

    1. 🙂Thank you!🙂 I loved having a chance to see the eagle again and the action was more exciting than watching Kane wander around the field today. I’m trying to ignore the empty stands and make up for the lack of real crowd noise by yelling at the tv more often (it might help you with your Everton/Liverpool match). I’m thrilled the Premier League has returned since I’m really beginning to wonder when our sports leagues will return. Enjoy the weekend!🙂

  5. While I think baby woodchucks are cute, I would NOT want to have 7 living under my deck! I sympathize with Harper. 😉
    That eagle seems totally non-plussed by the bluejay antics… great photo series.
    This heat wave has seriously derailed all my outdoor work. Lots of reading to be done inside, however. 🙂
    Have a good weekend… stay cool!

    1. 🙂Thank you!🙂 It was exciting to have a chance to watch the eagle again and I was amazed how long he stayed there with the noisy blue jays flying around his head. Just when Harper thought she had control of the backyard, the baby woodchucks started squeaking under the deck and scaring both of us! We’ve never had this many and we have to be careful every time we go outside since they are very busy exploring, eating and laying on the deck. We’ll definitely be hiding indoors this weekend from the weather and woodchucks! Enjoy the weekend and reading!!🙂

  6. I like the piped cheering – I know it’s weird, but it’s a lot weirder without it!

    1. I like the piped cheering too and hope when our sports leagues return they have a plan for crowd noise.🙂
