Morning After A Rainy Night And A Few Thoughts

Yet another rainy night followed by a cloudy misty rain on and off morning. I did not get out in the afternoon as a good sleepy night failed me leaving me weary. The weariness possibly a result of the over abundance of info about the corona virus pandemic. For me to understand things it is best to keep it simple.

Media and the government send such mixed signals, seemingly more interested in laying blame amid the hysteria. I for one do not trust our leader, Trump is a not a dealer in fact first. You can tell if he is lying if he looks you in the face, if his lips or fingers move, that is a fact. A big businessman that has been bailed out by bankruptcies a number of times. After the way our congress acted in the impeachment farce, how can I depend on their actions to be anything but political and not for the good of the country? Send the folks a couple thousand dollars, is that the answer, gee whiz ? Bail out industries yet again? Perhaps this is the new American way. If so the shame is on us, and our great democracy may fail !

Our new governor has been forthright and stating what we should do and I suppose I should only lend an ear to him, keeping it simple making sense.

I wonder why I still act normally and continue my observing nature routine. Is it time to use the farm as a resource to provide food? Repair the old tractor, make a plan to produce my own and not depend on what is now the normal process of obtaining sustenance from outside sources? I have never been a visionary that is for sure. Living day to day and taking what comes has honestly been my way. Staying calm by working hard when I have to, yes, accepting help when I have needed it from family.

Although working hard to stay out of debt a must I always believed as it was difficult for my parents to do so. I think of my grandmother who was my greatest mentor. Working hard at a factory job she disliked all but in war time. Doing what was needed to make life better for her and her children and grandchildren. Teaching me life lessons by her actions.

Lots to think about as I walk through the coming day or wait to see what happens next. Patiently waiting to be motivated in the right direction. How about you? …

    Another excellent commentary. Well said, and so true. Thanks for your thoughts. Pix: The Osprey, expressive stream of photos. I love the one where it is staring straight at me. It just might be agreeing too. The Jay vs the Eagle, hhmmmm, a story unto itself. Are our thoughts and actions/trying to change things futile? Not much we, like the Jay, can do. Life goes on the same Eagles and the eagles aren’t not soaring. Okay, so I’m not making any sense, just cabin fever/trapped by rain and C-V, just doing what comes naturally for me. Staying calm, carrying on, loving my family and home. And enjoying the great pix on Goat Sass blog.

      Ellen Bunnell,
      Thank You. The Osprey was very close probably less than 50 feet. In poor light and fog hanging over the water wildlife do not feel threatened. The osprey looked me over gave me a chirp. Close enough. I had not noticed it prior to getting to my location. Did not expect it to be sitting on a sign right next to the river. The poor light making this its best spot to locate a fish. The poor light requiring it to get closer. The jays must be nesting. When the smaller birds are nesting they all try to drive off predators such as eagles and hawks. Sometimes they succeed as in this case. One bounced off the eagles shoulder with its legs. Sorry that shot was too blurry to share. No eagles soaring this morning for sure. All I saw were drying out form the heavy nights rain. Like what you are doing at the present time. Glad you feel the blog is a part of it…

    Typos, Eagles are NOT soaring. Trapped by rain and C-V SCARE. So over blown, but of course taking the necessary to protect self and family.

      Ellen Bunnell,
      I have problems with typos too. Should always read what I wrote but don’t usually. Trying to do better at it myself…

  3. I listen to the scientists, not the politicians. They have nothing to say that I want to hear.
    That was a brave blue jay! Nice shots!
