Weekend Coffee Share #23-Need To Be An Early Bird

Coffee’s ready. Come in and pull up a chair. If we were having coffee I would tell you my life this week was controlled by outside demands and forces. My husband had medical appointments and I am the driver right now. I am glad we are getting connected with new healthcare providers in our community. My husband and I have both been catching up with long delayed medical check ups. At first it was nerve wracking to go into the clinic for appointments or lab work. But I feel that I have gotten more comfortable with going there. We will see how I feel after next Tuesday when restrictions are lifted and people are allowed to be in public without masks. I have gone into a few stores as well, still with my mask, so I am getting more comfortable with that.

Because I was so busy with the appointments I did not get a chance to get out and catch a photo of the roadrunner. I was up early one morning for a walk. I never thought I would be able to get up and out at 6:30 AM but I did. When I first started out, there were a couple of women out with their dogs. One of the women was talking loudly and I thought it would diminish my chances of seeing a roadrunner, the loud voices and dogs. But after I took a different route and walked over toward one of the greens where I had seen roadrunners before, I was rewarded with seeing the large one but only for a short time. There were some workers on the green and the roadrunner quickly sought a hiding place in a fenced yard.

I haven’t been able to get into a routine of early morning walks yet, but I will probably need to work on it because the daytime temperatures are starting to climb. We’re looking at a possible 114 degrees F on Tuesday.

Roadrunner that looked like this one crossed in front of our car.

    Good for you getting a picture of a road runner. I’ve never done a good job capturing them. Stay safe in that hot weather. We are supposed to get to 100 here in Prescott, 116 in Scottsdale. 🙂 Even here in AZ we are still doing masks at medical appointments, for the most part. I went to an allergist on Monday. He wore a mask, as did the receptionist, but no temperature taking, and no one else wore a mask in the waiting room, unlike at the dentist’s office a few weeks ago. 🙂 Stay safe and have a fun summer. 🙂

      If you’re referring to the image of the roadrunner on this post, that was taken by the National Park Service. I would love to get a photo like that as well. We are supposed to be universally mask free on Tuesday. Sounds like you are getting the heat too. Thanks for dropping by, Marsha.

        You’d laugh if you saw my picture of a road runner. One friend asked, “Where is it? All I see is a garage.” Have a great weekend, Deborah. It’s been a long haul with masks. I still carry mine, just in case. 🙂

    Enjoy the warm weather! How nice that your area has been able to ease some restrictions. I think it will take me quite a while to get used to less restrictions and still feel safe. I can’t wait to get my second vaccine shot – at least it should help be feel more assured.
    Hope you get the opportunity to take more early morning walks and to capture a roadrunner on camera eventually.

    Glad you’ve been able to get caught up on check ups. and Yay for getting out and walking. Sometimes if we just get it done in the morning thats the best, otherwise it doesn’t always happen.
