It's amazing how much work you can get done around your home when you actually stay at home the entire weekend. Staying focused and motivated is key. Mentally it feels great that I got something accomplished. Physically, I look forward to going back to work just so I can relax and rest my weary aching bones from all the hard labor I enforced upon myself.
While we were busy around the ol' homestead doing little odds and ends - - painting shutters, landscaping, cleaning out junk, etc. etc., I couldn't help but notice the buzz around my bird feeder. I counted not one, not two, but 5 birds and a squirrel feeding all at one time! My mama told me that you shouldn't feed the birds once spring arrives. I guess that theory makes sense since nature provides plenty for them to eat this time of year. However, these critters are going through a bag of seed in less than a week! To continue providing for them could get a little costly on my end. Not to mention the fact that I am enabling these beautiful creatures to become lazy and fat. On the other hand, these creatures serve as my backyard entertainment and admitting that I truly love watching them makes me feel like and old person. Oh wait, I am an old person.
Welp, tomorrow it's back to the store for some more feed (and some pain killers). Happy Monday ya'll.
