If I get up at 5 am  (my six words for Six-Word Saturday), I can get a LOT done before noon.  Here’s how it went on Wednesday.

I walked in the park on a beautifully cool, sunny morning, spotting cormorants in the “bird tree” (the dead tree where the birds like to congregate), wild irises amongst all the green, and a heron looking for breakfast…

did a weight workout at the health club, straightened up the house, did dishes, had breakfast, did two loads of laundry, stopped at WalMart for Consumer Reports highly-rated suntan lotion, then Costco for an outdoor carpet for the Wyoming cabin (plus a few impulse buys)…AND…went to Verizon, where I got everything on my old iPhone switched to my new 6s iPhone all before noon.

Then I had time to read, get a few more things done, fix quiche for dinner, and catch up on my blog reading, all without feeling in the least bit guilty.  Oh, yes, and had some tea.

Life is good when I get up at 5:30 am.

It’s time to pair six words for Saturday with a photo.  A few weeks ago I had only my iPhone when I spotted the first egret of the season.  It was very shy and even though I was at quite a distance, as soon as I stopped, it took off.  Needless to say, the resulting photo was less than stellar.  But I played around with some editing and came up with something I thought was fun and looked like the same egret during four various season.  I could have called it “Making the best of a bad shot”, but that’s seven words and Type-A people like me always try to follow the rules.   🙂

I, like Claude Monet, love enjoying the beauty of flowers always, even when they’re dead.  So I had to cheat just a little to get to six words for Six-Word Saturday.  Who cares?  Just enjoy, both the photo and your Saturday (or Sunday, if you’re in that part of the world.)

(I work Saturday and part of Sunday so forgive me if I don’t get to your blog or am late. It’s a busy weekend here.  And happy Mother’s Day to all who celebrate tomorrow.)

Somewhere in my childhood, I learned the little rhyme:
We’re all in our places with bright shiny faces.

I had to finagle a bit to get six words for Six-Word Saturday, but the “finally” is heartfelt! I’ve been waiting a long time for the beauties to bloom and then there they were in all their bright, cheerful glory.  Ahh, the joy of spring!

And the wind certainly doesn’t help, although I feel as if this could be a creature from a Dr. Seuss book.

Six-Word Saturday is hosted by Debbie at Travel with Intent and a number of us contribute our two cents worth (or six words and a photo) each week.
