Stuff Happens In Life As Do Moments

Posted by terrepruitt on June 5, 2012

I had to rearrange my Nia Classes this week and next week because stuff happens in life.  You know that right?  You have a plan, just cruising a long and something happens.  Sometimes it is just a little quirk that maybe changes your schedule a bit.  Sometimes it might be something bigger that changes a lot of things.  Either way, there is stuff.  We all have stuff.  Even if it doesn’t happen directly to us, it happens to someone who affects us.  Stuff.  Good stuff, bad stuff, stuff that can’t be qualified as either . . . but stuff.  Sometimes you gotta drop what you are doing and deal with it.  Sometimes you get a little prep time.  Whether you can actually get prepared in that time is another story, huh?  There are also moments when you might be able to forget the stuff and enjoy the moment that is.  Recently I was able to enjoy a moment.  I took a few pictures of it.  Since there is “stuff” I am using my moment to fill in.

I love when animals drink out of the bird bath.  My husband and I try to keep it clean and full.  I am really particular during the hot days.  Even though I am sure the water gets really hot, I still want to make sure there is water in there for them.  I like to see them drink out of it.  The blue jay are funny because they put their heads back and move their heads as if that is how they have to get the water down.  Is that how they have to do it?  Do you know?

All this splishing and splashing reminds me of the Duck Walk.  🙂  Thanks for letting me take a little break and share a bird’s bath with you.  It was a nice moment.

How are you doing?  Have you had any moments lately?  Got any stuff?
