A Smashed Peep (and some other stuff)

I ran away for a long lunch Thursday. Basking in the sunshine and walking the bike path at a favorite park felt like the epitome of freedom. Everything is COVID closed but you can still walk and drive around the lake.

This car turned my head.

And I went back for a closer look at these Peep bunnies, clearly run over by something. That’s not something you see every day and I liked the pink against the asphalt!

It was gorgeous out so I was sad to go home and resume working. But opening the window in the room where I work to let Scout enjoy the fresh air made the afternoon pass quickly. This picture was taken before the window was open but you get the idea.

He was a happy boy and I was thrilled for the fresh breeze and chatter of birds nearby.

My world has become very small and familiar. While this isn’t ideal, it is sort of fun to look more closely at your surroundings and seek out the details you might not ordinarily appreciate or even notice as close as your own home. Take a look around. You never know what you might find.

A brief recess

It is a beautiful day in the neighborhood here in southern Ohio. I had a meeting at one of our state parks this morning, giving me the opportunity to roll down the windows for a quick drive and then, get this……. sit outside!

During the middle of a work day. Sit outside under trees!!!

It was positively delightful and refreshing and happy.  I left feeling refreshed, energized and ready to go back to work. If only every day included a state park recess!
