Mystery egg

Saw this egg in the ground on the 15th.
It was gone today.

I setup a camera to try and catch who’s egg it was. Never did find out. Or who took the egg.

It wasn’t trampled by the deer. But something took it today. No trace of it.

Nesting

Walking through Brookside Gardens, I saw a bird fly into this bush. We had seen some Red-Winged Black Birds and I saw red out of the corner of my eye and thought it might be another one.
Instead, there was a Robin. Building a nest. We watched it sticking its tail feathers up and moving around in a circle. It was nest to be able to see this nest at eye level and watch the Robin build it.
We stayed back and let the bird work. After it flew off for more materials, I reached my arm over and above it to snap a picture. The nest was empty but still wet from the construction.

Ted Lasso was delightful and funny. The earnest and honest comedy reminds me of something I can’t out my finger on.

And Coach Beard reminds me of… Someone else. That also alludes me.

Is there anything else on Apple TV+ that’s worth our time?

Nomadland (2020)

I can’t decide if this is more cautionary tale of planning for retirement.
Or a perverse love story to a woman who looks lost and unable to find peace after losing her husband, her life, her community.
Did the upheaval of everything she knew lead to a life on the road? Was the view an escape hatch she leapt through when she has nothing else?
It’s a beautifully shot film filled with trauma around every corner. A collection of people fractured by life and events out of their control.

Ground Rules for New Bloggers

Good advice here. Especially about creating ground rules. Make some rules for yourself. It’s easier to make decisions when you can ask Past You what you did last time. If you have a rule not to blog about breaking news or gossip, then it’s easy to refer to it when you’re tempted.

Ground rules are important for who you let in. This is your blog. Your space. Your little corner of the world. You don’t have to give a voice to anyone in it you don’t choose to. You’re not a politicians having to win favor. You’re not a company worried about making payroll or earnings reports.

You’re a person. Or people.

You decide.

You make the rules and can change them when it suits you. If something isn’t working, change it.
