Our picture window looks out over the Alsea River. Where my laptop is set up, I can’t see out of it unless I look to the side. That’s so I can actually get some work done.
Exercising every morning is a very worthwhile habit that the lazy-me tries to talk myself out of daily.
I do my exercises looking out the window, hoping for wildlife for a couple reasons: 1) it breaks up the monotony of exercising by having something new to look at and 2) it adds the more-fun-exercise of dashing for the camera and clicking off photos. The black bear showed up a couple days ago. We have not seen him on our side of the Alsea River yet.
This morning this little forked-horn strolled through the yard and took our pathway down to the river where the doe joined him. Their coats look healthy!
They walked out to the island for a little bit, took a few drinks, then wandered up river where I lost sight of them. Then I went back to my hum-drum exercises. I would not have seen either the bear or the deer had I not been standing in front of the window. (If there are fishermen in the river, I back up so they can’t see me 🙂
I’m grateful for moments that break up the hum-drum!
