Balls and Alarums

Posted on

Back – again. Finding equilibrium comes in stages I think. Happily, I seem to be finding mine now, and getting used to this new life I’m finding my way to. The Horde are also just settling down properly too, and I’m only now seeing how much their poor little feathers must have been ruffled with it all. Jelly’s exploring properly for the first time, and they’re all getting back to their old crazy selves. The seed ball that I got for them that I thought I’d get major kudos for instantly became the Birdy Horde Destroying Scary Thing of DOOM. Talk about alarums and excursions. So that terrifying thing is going outside to scare the wildlife away instead.

Seed Ball

Finally, every day isn’t always a bad hair day anymore, and happy has slunk back up from the basement, supplying laughter and joy once again. I thought that my writing would have changed somehow, but I think it’s still the same old scribbling, from the same places. I see now that we can’t ever say what will happen. No matter what we do, or what our intentions on, our lives will take the courses that they have to, so we may as well enjoy the ride regardless.

My intentions were to be zooming around blogland a lot more than I have been, and that’s still what they are. So let zooming commence. I’m going to take baby steps getting back up to speed with the zooming though. I’m going to aim for three posts a week, and my Epic Comment Catch Up of All Time trip in between. Now that I’m around and about the town a whole lot more, I reckon I’ll take a pile of photos to share of interesting things and people around here. So, with a bit of luck – and elbow grease, I shall see you all in the land of blog all the time again.

    In this house, we have been thinking of you and praying for you often. That may sound strange, since you and I are blog-companions, but I have never met you in person. I am glad to hear you are tootling around again, Jo. Of course, I love your sharp insights. This one is for the ages: “I see now that we can’t ever say what will happen. No matter what we do, or what our intentions on, our lives will take the courses that they have to, so we may as well enjoy the ride regardless.” Good wishes from my little corner of Ontario.

      Thank you so much dear Cynthia, for your thoughts and your prayers – I really did need all of those that I got, and they worked too. It really was a big lesson learned, that no matter what we really think we can do, sometimes we just can’t, and that’s alright too as long as we just keep on going. Much love to you. I believe that friends are friends just exactly the same when they’re in any room together – virtual or brick.❤

      Thank you Olga – it’s wonderful to see you again! I just needed to get over the whole shake rattle and roll thing going on with all the break in attempts. I’m totally back to feeling safe again now, so I can get back to being where I love to be with all of you – my friends.❤ My guys definitely think it's the seed equivalent of the Death Star.😀

    Birds are so funny about things. If we change the birdseed in the outdoor feeder, or happen to put bread out there, they eye it suspiciously for awhile. Then, a brave one will try it first, before the other ones decide it’s ok!🙂

      They’re funny little critters. The longer I know my horde the more impressed I am with how clever they are. Who knows what goes on in those imaginations.🙂

    Funny about the seed ball scary thing of doom. LOL. Take your time, Jo. It’s always lovely to see your blog pop up in my reader, but there’s no rush to do anything. Life will unfold as it will.🙂❤

      Thank you Diana! It has really been a wild ride, but I’ve really missed everyone here, and it’s fabulous to be back without all the other bits of the past months. HUGS!❤

    Great news Jo. You never know I might resume my more modest blogadoo. in honour of your example. Haven’t your excuses but curiously blockaded right now. Hope to recover a few followers when I can be interesting (or believe I might be). So glad you are back to self.

      Thank you Philippa! It’s funny what blocks us up and stops from doing things that we really love. I love your posts, and I’m back to stay now – lots to share and share in for me. Maybe just waffle for a bit. Waffling always leads to the other stuff for me. HUGS and I hope to see you jumping in boots and all.❤

    As someone who finds it difficult to blog regularly once a week (it worked great when I was being paid for it!), I admire your resolution to blog three times a week. I’ll get back to mine to blog once a week. Or make shorter blogs…

      It would be fabulous indeed to be paid for it!🙂 I’ve always loved the blogging world though – the friends I’ve made here I honestly love and enjoy spending time with. All the ideas and opinions – I just get great joy from it, so it’s not a hardship except when I’ve got too much on to get here. It just about kills me when “life happens” and comments get neglected on my blog. I generally mostly blog short too though – I find I don’t really enjoy reading overly long posts either.🙂

    It’s good to see you back here, Jo and that ‘happy has slunk back up from the basement’. Lovely to hear a bounce in your writing and also so glad that your writing seems the same. You’ve been in my thoughts. Warmest wishes and take good care of yourself.

      Thank you my lovely friend! It’s so good to laugh again. It’s funny – I’m really noticing and enjoying things a whole lot more, and seeing rainbows because I’m taking the time to notice, rather than moaning about some thing or other. Much, much love to you.🙂❤
