Friday - And not a moment too soon...
The Santa Ana riverbed is close to my house. There are bike and walking trails that wind along it - you can actually get all the way to the beach if you have that much energy. There are lots of birds who live there: ducks and geese, and egrets - or cranes. I came home from work a little early today, as I planned to finish the day working from home so I'd be able to go pick up my new glasses. I was looking out my bedroom window (delaying the working from home part of the day) and I noticed a crane walking along the hillside, snapping up grasshoppers as he (she?) went along. We see these birds all the time along the riverbed, but they don't often venture over our way. They're very interesting to watch - all long legged and gawky, yet somehow graceful at the same time. I snapped a couple of pictures for your enjoyment, and then I photoshopped them for my enjoyment. It was a nice end to a nice day. I find I'm a bit of a bird geek.
Oh, and my new glasses? I'm lovin' them! They're kind of preppy cool - a little Buddy Holly, a little hot but brainy office girl. And most important of all, I can see, and wouldn't be embarrassed to be seen in them.
