Do You Ever Hope Problems Will Go Away?

Mourning doves sleeping, male cardinal, and female cardinal getting a snack.

By themselves? Like, if you ignore it long enough, it will right itself? Do they? Ever?

Okay, my list, I realize, is starting to grow. I can’t get logged into my Mac. Maybe it’s more secure from predators with all the hoops you have to go through to access your darn computer, but if the person who owns it can’t, then it’s a FAIL.

Next, I take a shower and my toilet starts to gurgle. And then my shower won’t drain. If I run the water in the sink after taking a shower, the toilet gurgles. Ugh. Maybe the water level is so high (we did have a lot of rain the other day, ignore the fact we had a lot of drought the first time), that was the problem, but guess what? It’s NOT going away.

Then, my garbage disposal isn’t running. I rarely, rarely use it. For the last twenty years, I’ve lived in rural homes and you couldn’t use one for a septic tank. They always install them in the homes, but I never used them. So, by habit, I dump stuff I can in the composter, and anything else in the trash. Why did the stupid thing go out on me in 2 1/2 years then? Ludicrous. I’ve tried the reset button. I hear a tiny grinding, so it’s trying to do something. And there’s nothing stuck in there because I never put anything in there but maybe the remnants of gravy, or something. And yes, I run water in there at the same time.

And…my low tire light came on in my car. So I fill the tires up with air and it continues to show low tire. The last time this happened, I ended up getting some bark mulch, my car was weighted down, and without adding any more air to the tire, it suddenly reset itself and no more warning light. Maybe I need to get a ton more bark mulch to fix it again? If everything could be so easy! Oh, wait, putting more air in the tires should have been enough, right?

If only I could call one person to fix everything, wouldn’t that be great?

Someone Said Feeding Time, Right?

There is always room for one more.

Mourning doves and white winged doves. Generally sociable and allow the others to hop right on. The baby in the one picture didn’t want any others around HIS food. 🙂

He’s like a child who doesn’t know how to share. Yet.

Have a fun day!!

Doves Can Be Boring, Except…

When they’ve ruffled their feathers all up.

And then, aren’t they pretty? Interesting? Morning grooming.

His Wild Highland Lass and Vexing the Highlander are approved for print version. I looked, but they’re not up on Amazon. Soon, though.

I’m working on Loving the White Bear for print and turned Night of the Wolf over to my beta reader. And I finished the bear for the order. Oh, need to get a picture!

So today, finishing White Bear, sending it in again for final proof, and have the proof to read for Galaxy Warrior too. 🙂 I worked from 5 am to 11 pm on this stuff, but there’s still not enough time in a day to get it all done.

Hope you find time today to love nature! Because it passes us by in a blink of an eye!

They often give way to other birds. Mockingbirds can be bullies. But not this time. The mourning doves won the day.

Off to write!

First Robin of Spring?

 

robin (640x528)

She’s the first robin I’ve seen in the yard since I moved here and some say when the robins turn up, it’s the beginning of spring. Well, the temperature has been in the high seventies and low eighties, so it sure feels like it. I saw a beautiful blue jay also, but wasn’t able to catch him before he flew off. But also, my mourning doves, I have 2 pairs that frequent the feeders, or I should say the seeds dropped on the ground, came to pay a visit and sat on the shepherd’s pole just for me so I could take a picture of the two love birds.

mourning doves (640x427)I didn’t realize they have so much color on their bellies until they posed for me for the perfect shot.

Have a super great day!!!
