I went on a run after work today, which I very rarely do on a Monday. On most Mondays I let myself off the hook, hence my usual Monstrous Monday. This week I decided to mix things up. For another reason, I needed to do laundry, and it is so handy to put the load in the washer, then run till it’s done.
It was a bad run almost immediately, and it did not get much better. I cut it short, because my back was in screaming pain. However, I do not mean to complain. Not too much, at any rate (I know that to some people, any negative peep is too much complaining and I should just stop whining, but do any of those people read this blog? I’m thinking not).
The highlight of my Monday was the blooming of my peonies. I had to go out and take a picture. I thought my readers would take flowers instead of monsters. Any who are disappointed can comfort themselves with the thought that more monsters will be forthcoming sooner or later.
In the meantime, I backed up and got a shot of my out of control daisies.
Then I remembered that I had never taken a picture of the bird house I recently hung on the porch. I surprisingly got my Tablet to zoom in. The last few times I tried that, all I would do was change it to selfie mode.
I went up on the porch to try for a closer shot.
Imagine my chagrin when I saw the price tag showing. Full disclosure: I did not purchase the bird house. I found it in one of those canvas dumpsters in front of somebody’s house. Hey, reduce, reuse, recycle, am I right?
So this is my Mixed-up Monday Post. Hey, have I just invented another feature?
