A Spring Watch

It would seem to me that many people love their phones. I take this from the fact that they carry them everywhere, always have them charged up, can easily find them, whip them out to take a peek at them during red lights, or theatre intermissions and I sometimes even see them taking a cloth and shining the face of the phone or wiping off fingerprints.
goose nesting ... lower right hand corner in the middle of the green.

I would like to be one of those people. who are in love with cell phone technology.

But I just don't get it.

I have a number of things to remember when I go out the door on my early morning walk: my sunglasses, a scarf for the Alberta wind,  a pair of gloves, some kind of identification in my pocket should I trip and fall, a hat to keep the sun away from my face on the walk back home which is directly into the rising sun, and my cell phone.  I never get all of these things together at the same time.

But I was pleased to have my phone with me so that I could record seeing this goose, nesting, and already the chicks have hatched.

I was wishing I had brought along my binoculars, rather than my phone.

So sweet.

  1. The list is long of what you have to remember. Take along a rolling suitcase, already packed and you will have everything.
