Good morning everyone and Happy Monday! Yep, that smiling Monday guy is here again. I just cannot help it. I like Mondays. And every other day too. So, time for some coffee and musings for this Monday. Hmm, sometimes it can be hard to find something to muse about, although Muffin mews all the time! Okay, bad pun perhaps, but the best I can do this early.
Well, it is not even that early really, but I was up early anyway. Nothing like getting up at 4am on a Monday morning to watch the sun rise. Too bad I cannot really see it from here. Not until about 6 anyway. But I can enjoy the morning anyway. Though it was a bit cool for sitting outside early this morning with my coffee. So I sat inside instead and looked out the window.
However, it is going to warm up today so hopefully I can spend more time outside later. Providing I do not fall asleep from being up so early. It would not be bad if I got to bed earlier, but that never seems to work out either. Oh well. Yesterday the sun came out so nicely I decided to go out for a while and see about some pics.
There was a strong north wind which did kind of make things a bit difficult. The temp was 63F (17C). So it was a bit on the cool side, but I stayed in the sun so it was not so bad. I was chasing this huge bumble bee and an even larger wasp, but alas, no photos of them. That huge wasp I still have not identified though I see it every year, nothing even approaches the size of this critter.
I would not like to be stung by it! I did get stung once so far this year, but it was just a small bee so it did not hurt more than a couple of days. Last year I was stung 11 times chasing after bees and wasps. Hopefully I will not repeat that this year. Sigh. Well, time to head out for some shopping so I shall say good bye for now. Thank you for stopping by, have a marvelous Monday and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
