Coffee Drinking On My Back Porch

Saturday, April 27, 2013

I have enjoyed a quiet and simple start to my Saturday by sitting on the back porch. This morning, the sky was blue-grey and many clouds were moving in on us.

I put a tablecloth over my deck table, brought out a cup of coffee in my jolly Red Hatter mug and sat down to enjoy slices of orange. My tastebuds were on high alert to such lovely flavours.

My backyard is tiny. To find one smaller, you would have to live high in the air within an apartment. But I enjoy what I have.

On the porch, I was able to watch the the birds mobilize to sing in the morning light. I can't identify all the Pacific breeds, but the common sparrows, mourning doves and seagulls were just a few that I smiled at today. All the songs were a blend of nature "disorganization". If a choir director had their way, each family of winged singers would be encourage to tweet one song at a time...

I was enjoying how various chirps, squawks, humms and coooos were fired back and forth across the tree tops. They were actually noisy! (For birds)
Their little matinee had me smiling in minutes. Oh, what a tranquil scene they played out for me.

None of the eagles flew by to silence the others birds today. When my coffee cup was empty and there was nothing left but an orange peel, I looked to the dead branches of one tree and the woodpecker dropped in for a visit. Really. The woodpecker is back.
I allowed him to knock out a few bars of head-banging music as the morning's crescendo.

Try some quiet bird watching this weekend. I guarantee you can drop your blood pressure a point or two.

    Sounds like a most enjoyable way to spend the morning.
I was waiting for my friend to open her door yesterday at
8 am so that we could go to the Farmer's Markets. She
was not ready, so I sat down and watched 2 lorikeets
going in and out of the water bath and having a great chin
wag by the sounds of it. Then they were kissing and singing
and I wanted to take a photo but the green leaves and their
green feathers wouldn't allow me as the birds were so well
camouflaged. It was nice to watch though and I agree with
youthat it is such a peaceful feeling to be able to enjoy this
blessing. For once I was glad my friend was late. emoticon

    I got up from a bad nights rest but I enjoyed my time spent with my grandson who in his excitement coming to my house couldn't fall asleep til 1am. I felt like a mother hen dotting over him while he slept. I got up to take my son to Saturday detention and took Shadow out with me. Right across the street is a park so me & my Shadow walked and enjoy Saturday morning. Then me & the boys went to the mall to return items, I ended spending money on items for them. So I am a little tired but I did put out some bread & cereal for my birds.... I am the bird lady after Good Saturday!

God bless & enjoy everyday!

    The birds were probably Praising G*D! I love the sound of the birds, they wake me up to a marvelous harmonious song sound. Its one sound I do enjoy in the morning. Better than hearing the rumblings of a train any day! Happy trails. Enjoy! susana emoticon
