Monday Musings

It was a productive weekend at our house. We went to a few yard sales. We took Smores in for his shots.
He's doing very well, fat and happy. He seemed surprised when I took his picture with his bone. 
We discovered a new park. That's been a new ritual for Sunday afternoons, discovering local trails and parks. It's good exercise, or at least I tell myself it is.
Yesterday's park had a lot of paved walkways and a little retention pond. This mama duck was a little leery of us at first but relaxed when she realized we weren't going to bother her or her babies.
Curious as to why some birds were flying in and out of the bathroom, we looked up into the corner and discovered a nest with little fluffballs in it. We could see three babies, but there might have been more.
I liked yesterday's flat paved trail better than last week's exploration. On Mother's Day, we discovered a set of trails that were mostly uphill. 
I did enjoy the wildflowers...
the cactus growing wild...
and the interesting trees.
But my favorite part was on the way back to the truck. Downhill all the way :-) 
We only walked a fraction of the trails, maybe a mile and a half total. It's on our list to return later.

This morning we're off to Home Depot to buy concrete to fix the fence and paint for a dresser we bought at a yard sale this weekend. Then it's back to the doctor to check on the Bean's progress. 
Have a marvelous Monday!
Thanks for reading.
Blessings :-)
