I see all of God's creation! The beautiful trees on the trail, the flowers that grow like weeds, the vines hanging from the trees, and the way the first trees are starting to turn! All of His creation shouts "Praise Him"!
As I was walking with my dog this morning, I passed a neighbor's house where a backhoe had dug up an enormous area of their lawn due to a leak in the underground water pipes. This gaping hole was filled with dirty water oozing into the street. Someone planted 2 signs there: NO FISHING and SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK. I couldn't contain my laughter. Someone has a good sense of humor. Thank you for my morning chuckles---whoever you are!!
I saw a car accident where a woman rear ended another car. I saw the drivers head of the hit car whip back and forth. I thought oh oh, whiplash. I think the guilty driver was checking me out and not paying attention to the road. Well, anyway, the cops came but no ambulance so apparently there was no injury. I’m glad about that!
Roaming the streets of Manhattan yesterday, I stumbled by St. Mark's Church in-the-Bowery on the Lower East Side. The site is New York's oldest parcel of land to host a church, going back to the time of the New Amsterdam settlement in 1660, as built by Peter Stuyversant as a family chapel on his farmland. An old cemetery around the current Episcopal parish church (dating back to 1799) memoralizes the Stuyversant family, a past Vice-President of the United States, among others. Two hundred-plus years of architecture and about 400 years of history, by chance during a half-mile walk enroute elsewhere.
I'm in Tucson and we have a "loop" walking biking trail that runs for over 100 miles. I see all kinds of wildlife on my walks. The most exciting and slightly scary was a trio of javelinas right in front of me as I came around a bend. We stared at each other as I slowly backed up and they went on their way. This morning I saw a beautiful and large hawk landing on a bush near me. I'm not a birder so I'm not sure what kind it was. But it stopped me in my tracks as I gasped. Wonderful
I didn't actually see them but did hear a flock of geese overhead. It always excites me to hear them since it means the 100+ degree days are behind us and autumn is showing up in earnest. I live in the Pacific Flyway so it is just the beginning of the duck and geese migrations here.
I was walking out of a second hand store this afternoon, when an older Man walked up to the Security Gaurd, and proceeded to tell him, "My front passenger window was smashed and two laptops and a camera were stolen from the front seat."
I wish I could have some sympathy for him, but most cars have trunks.
We walked a mile , my weeny dog has never liked bad weather . It's been raining for a couple of days . Last night was really tough on us. Hopefully it will be sunny soon. Eventually she's bonkers. 🐕🙏🐾💦
⊱⊱⊱ Early this morning ∽ being very still and quiet ∽ we watched several truly gorgeous white∙tail deer as they enjoyed their breakfast of fallen apples ... and quite often, stretching up to pick an apple from the trees.
