Today I cleaned my stove. This in turn made my counter tops look bad. So I cleaned them, which in turn made the cabinet faces appear rather horrid. So I cleaned them, which in turn made the appliances, both large and small, seem a bit crusty. So I cleaned them, which led to a careful observation of the floor. And so on it went to carry over into 2/3 of my house. This resulted in a much cleaner, pleasant domicile and a later walk than I had planned.
Not only did I walk later than planned but I ventured into some ‘new’ territory. The state forest is being thinned so is rather populated with loggers, trucks and skidders. Not a good meditative environment. Nor good for picture-taking since I often find myself on my knees, belly or in a strain of some kind. For this, I need no live audience. So I explored a small patch of woods on the opposite side of the road.
Here is what I saw.
I find it funny how some walks I start out thinking “I’m not gonna see ANYTHING worth taking a picture of” and suddenly I’ve burdened myself with an unholy amount of photos in a very short time. I’m of the philosophy that you will never regret a picture you take but you will always regret the ones you did not. Unless it is a super crappy picture of yourself. Those, you will regret.
But you know what I mean.
Following this, the most tiny mushroom I’ve ever seen. Isn’t it cute?!
Now you seem them…..
What is the above picture of? I’ll give you a hint. The same mammal that was here also did this…..
What do you win you ask? The pride and satisfaction of getting the correct answer. ‘Cause I don’t have a door prize or anything.
Thanks for walking with me.
Have a lovely day and don’t forget to slow down and enjoy these days leading up to Christmas, they’ll be gone before you know it!
