I was too tired yesterday to make even a Tired Tuesday post. I did, in fact, type in one sentence: “I am SO TIRED!!!” I did not save it so do not know why I feel compelled to re-type it in and share it now, but that’s me for you. I went for a walk this morning but am not sure it will make a good Pedestrian Post, due to my inability to take good pictures. However, I shall try.
I turned on the dining room light to put on my sneakers and left it on, because I was wondering how well our ghoul, Elliott Ghoul, looked from the street. Elliott Ghoul is one of the Halloween decorations we keep up year round. I like to keep his sound on too, but Steven turned it off, because Elliott kept waking him up when he takes a nap on the couch. Outside, I observed that Elliott does show to passersby, although he can be blocked by Frankentree.
He looks even more spooky when he’s all blurry!
I tried to take a picture from the sidewalk. First I zoomed in, which I can sometimes do. Other times, I think I am zooming but instead I change it to selfie mode. I hate it when that happens!
You can see one of Frankentree’s branches on the left.
I zoomed back out to show part of the porch, then started on my walk. I usually walk the same way in the morning: to the spring on Lou Amber Drive. It is good for me, because I carry a bottle of water and drink it while I walk to the spring, then I re-fill it and continue to sip. It makes for more hydration than I usually get first thing in the morning.
The only exciting thing that happened on this morning’s walk was when I encountered a skunk on Church Street, as I headed home with my spring water. Yikes! I was luckily a couple of houses away when I saw what was clearly NOT a cat or bunny. I quickly crossed the street then wondered if I dared keep walking in that direction, which was still toward the animal. I took a few hesitant steps. He (or she) turned and walked up a lawn towards a house. Phew! I did not take a picture.
However, on a walk last month, I took a picture of the full moon that I will now share. It was not a fully successful picture, which is one reason I have not shared it thus far. I had a thought of using it in a Pedestrian Post with the title, “No Moon Shot,” but I could not get my act together to the extent of writing said post (what a surprise: me not have my act together! Say it ain’t so!).
I guess it isn’t so bad. Or do I flatter myself?
Pedestrian Posts with Pictures are clearly more successful when I take my walks in full daylight. I will attempt another of those in the future. For now the important thing is, I have made a blog post. At least, it is important to me. Once again, thank you for tuning in.
