On Solid Ground

Just like my bird bath that always falls over every year during the winter months, I don't always feel like I'm standing on solid ground. There are days when I'm not sure if I'm coming or going. If I put one foot in front of the other and keep on going it's all good though.
I may not know what the day will hold but I do know that the sun is shining, it's warmer than I can ever remember a March day being and I can handle whatever comes my way.
I realize this may sound like I'm struggling with something but honestly it was just my attempt at being profound.

I swear that looks mighty heavy...maybe your heart is heavy---trying to be profound, eh? It worked!!!

Have a glorious March Sunday. Hope the weather continues to be good. I'd much prefer warm to cold and snowy.

Not to worry Ann. I often dream my way through some days feeling like I am not quite there. Not sure why, but then I am always happier dreaming things. lol
Nice to get some sunshine isn't it?

That looks like a very profound statement to us. Especially with the bird bath down and out. Have yourself a really easy Sunday.

LDH said...

Yup... it sounds profound :) You are lucky the bird bath hasn't broken. I just love birdbaths and have the one that belonged to my husbands parents. Just noticed the other day that it is dry but haven't venture out to fill it. I'll just have to put one foot in front of the other with a jug of water and take a stroll this mild March day.

I'd like a little of that March warmth Ann...no sun for us today :-( Have a good weekend.

Daisy said...

I guess, like the bird bath, just pick yourself back up, fill with liquid and keep on goin'!

Sandra said...

ann is feeling profound, her bird bath is on the ground. how is that for a short poem?
this photo reminded me of our two dogs running a few years back, chasing each other and they both hit the bird bath, and it broke in 4 pieces, it laid there for 2 years in 4 pieces until bob put it back together with concrete STUFF...talk about profound, my words were NOT profound with hubby

You and your bird bath with be alright now that you have your sunshine. :) Some days I'm not sure if I'm coming or going. :) It happens to us all. Hope you have a terrific day filled with sunshine! Can't wait to see pics of the bird bath with some visitors. :)

Donna said...

Spring always gives us promise! I hope that you get out and enjoy the day - breathe in that fresh air and walk Duke. A little play time will help you get it all back in perspective.

Oh, how I wish I had a birdbath again! I miss not having one and our little tiny lot isn't really conducive for one. That one looks sweet and it doesn't look like the tumble did any permanent harm to it.

Sandee said...

I think we all feel this way from time to time. I know you are a happy person that views the world in a positive way. I like that.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

So that's where all our nice weather went, that is one heavy bird bath but I bet the birds love it.

Grace said...

I'm having a problem with the "one foot in front of the other"...most days can't get that second foot to move...Great photo...

Duni said...

We've had two very mild days too; didn't last though - it's raining again.
Sometimes I have so many things going on at once I don't know where to start...

Debra Dickinson said...

Waxing profound suits you, but then again I haven't seen/read anything that doesn't. Pretty bird bath.

Sunshine on a cloudy day.... Enjoy! :)

That does sound profound but I like Daisy's solution! She's such a wise kitty!

Sounds good to me! (I was going to tell you to keep trying {at being profound}, but that sounded a little crass. So, I tried my hand at being supportive for once. Did it work?)

Ratty said...

My first thought was that I wanted to pick up the bird bath. I do that with people too.

Don't unplug your hub said...

I know exactly how you feel. My bird bath falls over too. This was quite profound.

Ginny said...

I LOVE your yarn photo. And I guess my question would be, why don't you bring the birdbath inside during the winter?

Sharkbytes (TM) said...

I feel like that knocked over birdbath a fair amount of the time. Profound intentions or not. Sometimes we are there.

Chatty Crone said...

You were profound and what was even funnier is that I understood it. sandie

Betsy from Tennessee said...

What a gorgeous birdbath, Ann... I assume it wasn't damaged when it fell. We always take our top OFF during the winter. The base has never fallen..

Yes--there are days when we are not on solid ground. That's just part of life.. We just keep wobbling and keep on trying to stand upright!!!! Right????

Hugs,
Betsy

We can endure a lot when there is sunshine on our shoulder. :)

Sunshine makes life good.

Lin said...

I do that. I see stuff and then it makes me think. And then I have to write about it and try to connect the dots of my brain so that it makes sense. Or not.

I get it.

Don't you wonder why that darn thing keeps falling over each year? I mean, it's heavy, isn't it? You'd think it would stay upright.
