Daily Reminder # 726

Apparently early evening is my new posting time. Big excitement on Fairvew Avenue this morning. I got up to and my neighbor was out talking to a state (I think) policeman. Then the guy just parked himself in front of my house and stayed there for almost 3 hours. When the Meals-on-Wheels lady arrived I learned that the mother bear and her cubs were hanging out in a tree in the woods at the top of the hill. It's a walk-through short-cut for lots of kids so they were not letting anyone go through. I think (no good gossip on this yet) that they may have tranquillized the bears and relocated them because a guy in a brown uniform walked down the hill eventually, talked to the cop for a minute and they drove away. I hope my sweet bear and her babies are ok. Even though I'd like to see them again, I hope they have been relocated someplace where they will be safe and so will my neighbors. Other than that, it was a relatively dull day. Too much time thinking about politics again. The back door was pretty friendly today. There were even gold finches today but the blue jays scared them away before I got a picture and scared themselves way in the process. So it goes. Just pictures and gratitude tonight. I think I had something else I was going to talk about, but I don't remember what it is, so gratitude and pictures win.

Sometimes I wish I could communicate with animals. This
little bird was acting so (from my perspective) strange. It
would fly off and then turn and return to the post as though
it couldn't make up it's mind about what to do. Did that
over and over and over and over and over. Literally. So
that's why there's this blurry picture. 

Some things I'm grateful for today: (Items in red are pre-gratitude, an embrace of my inner rich girl, to allow myself to believe it's OK for me both to want things and to receive them. And of course, it is an invitation to the Creative Forces of the Universe to grant my wishes.) Thank you for:
