Star Trails Over the House in a Nature Kind of Day
If you are new to my blog, welcome, glad you came by. I usually do a wrap up of the day, called my daily post, and this is it. Not always the most exciting post in the world, but sometimes, days are just normal days.
I try to keep up with a quick daily post for myself as much as anything else. Looking back, I can remember things I never could have remembered before without writing them down. So, in a nut shell, that is what this post is all about.
I took this photo of my house, late last night, so I thought I would go ahead and include it for today's post. The sky was clear with no moon. First time I have attempted to photograph our house at night, I am sure it won't be the last (you may have to click on the larger version to see the star trails, if interested).
Please do excuse the boxes on the patio, thanks.

Today was a day spent at the office without leaving, which is fine, since I work out of my home. I got pretty much a little of everything done today, but it was mostly work with a little Twitter. Tomorrow will prove to be a very busy day as we take all our processed orders from today into town and do all our various tasks when we hook up with everyone in Auburn/Opelika.
Nature in View
Today was a nature viewing kind of day. It started off with three deer wandering through the pasture and into the pond. They did a nice slow walk all the way across the width of the property and ran off across the road to a graveyard near by.
After they left, we had a very loud pair of Canadian Geese they landed like a bomber without engines into the pond. They managed to take a bath leaving a ton of feathers behind when they left.
I had a headache that just wouldn't let go so I decided to take an early walk around the perimeter and once back into the deeper part of the woods here I came up onto a Whip-poor-will sleeping in the leaves. I had never seen one before, and apparently they are not easily seen since they are nocturnal.
Seems I was walking in his sleeping area. As I made my second lap he was still up in the trees moving around from branch to branch waiting for me to leave no doubt.
