New year’s resolution???

2019_03_13__Chagrin River Park_0020
My intention for 2019 is to create a blog post at least twice each week. As you can see from my record so far this year, I haven’t been very successful despite my good intentions. As I post this, on March 14th, we are much closer to April Fool’s Day than to New Year’s Eve. My (poor) record speaks for itself, and if I continue at this (slow) pace, I’m in danger of feeling a little foolish, or negligent at best.

However, to borrow another idiom that seems to fit my situation: Better late than never…because my intention is related to two specific goals: to get more exercise and the improve my photography. Both are still possible in 2019. After all, we’ve not yet a third of the way through the year.  So with my goals in mind, I took my camera and hit the trail in Chagrin River Park several times this week, which is where I spotted the deer at the top of this post and captured her picture, as well as those below.

A walker left seeds for the birds on the park bench…

This deer knows there must be some left for her.

Hopefully, this towhee got his share.

And the squirrels never miss a chance for a tasty treat.

That’s my bounty for this trail walk. I only walked about a mile, but that’s a start. Wish me luck, or, better yet, put on your walking shoes and join me.

See you soon.

  1. I enjoyed that Carolyn – the beautiful deer, the hopeful towhee and the mischievous squirrel. I hope good weather is ahead for us for our walks. I’ve been on pins and needles all day worrying about this severe weather in Michigan and I think the warnings will all expire at 10:00 p.m. (thankfully).

      1. Thanks Carolyn – I hope so too. I was spared any damage from last night’s storm, but mid-Michigan was hit with two tornadoes. Very scary – too early for thinking about tornado season. We have some snow tonight and maybe tomorrow, but it should not amount to much, so I hope to get out for a long walk at a Park.
