Yesterday morning, I was feeling a bit spacey. Yes, you there snickering in the corner, I know what you're thinking, but I was more spacey than usual. I was so unwithit that my morning Sudoku games looked like they were being played by a toddler who chanced upon his mother's iPad.
I had a Christmas card to post — just one card this year — so I stopped at the mailbox. Just like most communities in Canada built in the past two or more decades, we have a community box at the end of the street. I grabbed the key, opened my box, grabbed all of the
cards that people had sent flyers and went merrily on my way. It is the time of year to be merry after all.
I completed my errands, pretending that my mind was in working order, and returned home. I pulled in the driveway and put my stuff into the bag that the pet store provided with the new litter lifter because I broke the other one that very same morning. In went the video that I had obtained from the library. In went the flyers. Whoopsie! The card that I had set out to send was still on the car seat.
I trudged back to the mail boxes to finally post the darn thing. A skein of honking geese flew over. These are the geese that are, apparently, too lazy to fly south to warmer climes but not too lazy to fly back and forth willy nilly honking their tiny brains out. The sky was a clear blue. I decided to take a phone shot.
You know how many times, I turn on the phone camera accidentally when I don't want to? Well, wouldn't you know that I couldn't seem to find the camera right then when I wanted it. The leading geese were just about out of sight when I finally found the camera. Can you see the little dots in the sky. They could have made a decent photo when they had been directly overhead, but Oh No! that would have been too much to ask for on such a spacey morning.
