The Usual aka Weekend Recap 6

Today marks day 21 of the A to Z Challenge, and if you don’t know what this challenge is that I speak of, I touched on what it was briefly here.  For complete rules, historical information and all that jazz, click here.  I know, I know, we’re almost done April so just a few more days, you guys.  Some bloggers have chosen to pick a theme for the #AtoZChallenge, I’ve chosen to wing it.  Next year if I decide to participate, I’m certainly picking a theme I think and scheduling posts in advance, that way I’m not feeling so bloody rushed.  Today is Monday, which means I try my best to get my USUAL post, which is my Weekend Recap or also known as, picture dump.

#AtoZChallenge

This past weekend was much like the last, only it wasn’t nearly as warm or sunny, but it was still pretty.  Jeff and I even took the long, scenic drive home from up north yesterday.  I was hoping for sunshine but much of the day was overcast and grey.  I did, however, see TWO MOOSE.  I haven’t seen a moose in a few years since we were last camping up in Algonquin Park or up along the corridor.  I honestly didn’t even see the buck standing just off the shoulder of the road we were on until Jeff repeated a couple of times “OH MY GOD, are you seeing what I’m seeing?!”  No, I’m not, I was having a blond moment and then I had my “Ah-ha!” moment.  Gosh I’m so funny sometimes I just crack myself up.  <—  I know, you’re like, Lindsay, just STOP.

While it was cool to see two moose, it’s kinda not cool to be seeing them so close to the road and civilization.  It’s when you don’t see them that it is a good sign, that means they’re in nature in the wilderness where they’re intended to be, not crossing roads and getting hit by cars or big tractor trailers.  So without babbling way too much, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

I hope you all had a great weekend – did you get up to anything fun or exciting?

    I’ve seen a lot of wildlife, but never any moose. That would be thrilling.

    I also did not plan a theme for the A-Z Challenge this year, thinking A-Z was theme enough. I was a little concerned about painting myself into a corner, especially with the difficult letters. As the month progressed, I found a theme emerging in spite of itself, which has been very helpful and not as constraining as I feared. I agree it would have been handy to have some written ahead of time, so maybe next year.

  • They’re quite majestic, but they’re not afraid of people so best to keep a safe distance. We see so many tourists in the summers especially that will get as close as possible and it’s so flippin dangerous. They will charge, attack and kill you, if given the opportunity.

    The challenge has been fun this month but I think I’ll be a bit relieved once it’s over. And I think it’s partly because I didn’t plan ahead and I’m feeling more rushed than usual. Ah well, lesson learned for next time.

    Thanks so much for stopping by hun. 🙂

    Can honestly say, I’ve never seen a moose in my life. Wouldn’t know what to do if I did LOL But I’m sure it would be a comical site.

  • Cathy, they’re the kind of animal you don’t want to run into. They are such strangely, odd yet beautiful creatures.
