Home - sitting in my old fashion swing back chair with feet on the footstool watching You tube clips on the computer about hiking, I even watch one on the Rideau Trail. I would like to to get out and hike but I don't for a couple of reasons one Noni is a soft hiker and I want to go deep into the woods for hours maybe even do some camping. And the second is that I am always concerned about meeting a bear or cougar.
Looking up now and then out the balcony glass door - I see that I have feather friends coming to my feeders. Juncos - Stellar Jays, Black cap Chickadees, American Flickers, Spotted Towhees.
I am thinking all I need is to have an artificial fire going and I would be set.
- I gave up living in the country with a real fireplace and trees and more birds than you can count on your fingers coming to my feeders - ponds in the back yard - That life is gone... so I must accept that fact, now that I am living in a condo that over looks a busy highway listening to the swoosh - swash of the cars... and OH I forgot to mention - just before I did the road trip to Oregon and California and our return I have been appointed back on council. We had three resignations of council members and I was asked to come back on Strata Council. Foolishly I said YES.
I have mentioned things in my old posts about the drama going on in the strata - then I was not re elected at the AGM - but now I have been appointed back on and so the DRAMA continues
I wonder what were the reasons why three people walked out of the last council meeting and resigned. I have heard rumours - into the hornets nest I go. Can't let life get boring while I am away from camp - can I?
On my walk today in the light drizzle, I observed several Canadian Geese in flight and a bushy tailed Grey squirrel scurrying up a tree, but didn't see any eagles. Walking around the pond in some sections it smelled of rotten salmon from the last run in September. I was looking for ducks or other pond birds but none were to be found.

    Looks like your life will not be dull anytime soon! Enjoy the birds and outdoors, and that may help with craziness of the indoor stuff!

    I'm sorry you're missing nature as you long to have it. Sounds like you need to plan a trip between soft hiking and deep woods hiking/camping. I hope you have a bear canister if out for any length of time or depth of walk- that would definitely be of help not attracting them to you!
    Yeah, I'd say you're in for quite a time. I guess someone has to get in there and help get things right.
