Mundane Monday In My Backyard

Here’s my entry for this week’s ‘Mundane Monday Challenge‘. Ms. AnhingaΒ  eyes Mr. Ali-baba from the safety of a tree branch.

My blog friend and author, Sarah Potter always posts a Monday Morning Haiku. Check out her beautiful Spring haiku and image here.

Wishing you all a very happy week. Hubby is on the scaffold putting up ceiling timbers in our living area. Hopefully one day soon we’ll be able to move out of the bedroom.

  2. Beautiful image and Haiku, but I don’t see anything mundane about a backyard with a scaly hunter! Wishing you a speedy exit from your bedroom Sylvia. I actually expected to find you out already πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much, Madhu. I guess it’s just what one gets used to. I never imagined that I would have an alligator swimming just outside my house, but now it seems like the norm. πŸ™‚ It will be a few months yet until the living area is finished. The place is big, and hubby has actually had to gut the whole inside of the house and rebuild ceilings and walls. He’s done a great job with the bedrooms, bathrooms and laundry. Now he’s working out the ceilings for the other rooms. It’s all going to be quite fancy, so takes lots of thought and precision. It will all come together suddenly, I have no doubt. πŸ˜€

  3. So sorry to picture you living in the midst of the construction. Hoping you get it all settled soonest and can enjoy your amazing looking home.

  4. la preda e il cacciatore…due immagini straordinarie per due nomi bellissimi, sto ancora pensando alla tua anagrafe ha ha
    ma il maritino quale premio avrΓ  per tutto quelgran lavorare?

  5. Sounds like it’s more fun in the bedroom Sylvia. πŸ˜†

    Lovely shots of these beauties. Love your Haiku. πŸ˜€ β™₯

    • Thanks so much, Sonel. Glad you enjoyed my haiku. Two down, many more to go I’m thinking. xx Hehehe. I’m going to be naughty and say that it’s no fun in the bedroom if hubby is up on the scaffold. πŸ˜…

  6. Well, I see you didn’t take the easy way out this time and scope out a gator-free zone (do those even exist down there?). What sort of bird is that? Never seen anything like it!

  7. Ms. A can’t go any safer than where she is πŸ™‚ nice to see Mr Ali-baba and we’ll see what he’ll be up to in the days ahead! πŸ™‚

  8. Sylvia is this a new Mr A? Good luck to your husband and the building progress. As much as one might like to spend the day in bed it likely grows a bit tiresome after a few weeks or months or…. πŸ™‚

  9. Thank you for the kind mention, Sylvia πŸ™‚ You definitely have some interesting wildlife where you live. I like the way your haiku ties your two pictures together. And your scaly hunter definitely has the look of the predatory dinosaur about him!

    • Yes, I’m always happy to see an ali roving around……in the water, that is. πŸ™‚
      It’s quite dull here today and I think we’re also in for some more rain. Hope you find lots of interesting things to do on your rainy day. xx
