Boy, can I use some “Relax“ation today and this weekend!  Tea, reading, watching the Blackhawks play hockey, having a smooth dark beer…all these are relaxing.  Another surefire way for me to relax is to just get out into nature by myself.  It will smooth my ruffled feathers every time.

  1. awe this is beautiful!! I love birds too. So relaxing to watch.

  2. I guess nature will do it every time for us all J, but this little guy looks a tad agitated don’t you think?!

    Sweet little thing. Have a good weekend, Janet.

  4. Hello little one, you are one cute thing. And hello, taller one! I think I will join you in drinking a dark beer. Lovely photo, Janet. Relax, take a step back and glide smoothly into a warm weekend.

    Great interpretation of the challenger !

  6. Nature always does the trick, have a lovey RELAXING weekend! xx

    • You as well, Susan. I’m going to a Christkindlmarket this weekend, which should be fun and mood-enhancing. 🙂


      • Sounds fabulous, we have a sporting weekend, tennis lesson and ice skating on Saturday and tennis tournament on Sunday!

      • Busy weekend for you, Susan, but it sounds like fun. I love ice skating, although I haven’t been for some time. The market was quite good, although not inexpensive. 🙂 Makes me appreciate all the European ornaments and decorations we have from my s-i-l and from a Christmas store where we lived in Cleveland.

  7. Sounds like a great plan!

    I’m with you, Janet. Unruffle my feathers with a walk in nature any time. Either that, or a smooth dark beer! 🙂

  12. You keep amazing me with these great shots.
    Happy Friday.

    Lovely image, Janet – It reads that you are up for a treat this weekend … good on you! Smooth dark beer makes me think about Guinness … you’re a tough lady. Enjoy your beer!

    • My dark beer addiction began with Guinness and has moved to a variety of other dark beers from craft breweries. Some are too hoppy for me, but there are so many good beers these days. Of course, a nice, dry red wine is also good. 🙂

        Not a beer person … and know very little about beer, I have tried Guinness … but we didn’t agree … like rocket fuel to me. I like a Chinese beer: Tsingtao – it’s a bit sweet and light. I stick with a glass of great read. *smile

    The green sprig adds just the right touch of color to the photo, Janet. I also like the way that the colors of your frames tied everything together.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
