Positively Biting Off More Than I ....

 by Mauverneen

The saying goes ...more than I can chew. In other words more than I should. At one time. 

I was going to post a short video of some birds at my feeder. They are always so fun to watch, I thought you might enjoy it too. But of course, the video file was too large. So I opened up the video program I have thinking I would just resize it. Well, I've never used that program before, so of course there is a learning curve. Which means I have to watch a couple of videos before I can work on my own video. Now, I'm sure there is a quick and easy way to resize a video, just like I can with photos. But of course I am used to doing that and know how to make my way around in Photoshop. Silly me, thinking it would be that simple. Which it probably will be once I learn how. But it isn't going to be today.

What else have I bitten off? Well, I'm trying to write an article for a newsletter that I am editing. I need to do that before I can finish the newsletter. I need to finish this newsletter before I leave for a short trip next week. I have to do laundry before I can pack for said trip. And generally, once I pack I then unpack and repack at least once, changing my mind several times about what to take, taking too much and never wearing half of what I take. I need to shower, take the dogs out, go to the grocery store. Today. (I'm out of toilet paper, garbage bags, coffee and dog food!) Oh and a meeting Wednesday evening. It's also my birthday week so there is a play I'm going to and a dinner with family. And I'm still trying to get my Christmas trees put away, so I take off a few ornaments as I pass by. I think I've got them all, now I just have to cart it all to the basement.

And as I was walking by my kitchen window just a few minutes ago I came across this lovely couple, so of course I had to run and get the camera in order to capture this! Eastern Bluebirds! 

So, maybe next week you'll get that video, and I think I'll share that article with you too at some point, but for today, I hope it's a Positively Relaxing Tuesday! At least for some people.
