My friend, Sindy (Happy 3rd blogiversary Sindy!) from bluebutterfliesandme offered a”Retro” challenge for this Mercury Retrograde, which ends June 11th. Since a positive aspect of Mercury Retrograde asks us to look back, a lot of people are reblogging wonderful older posts. However, since I have only been blogging for about 7 months, I didn’t feel that putting up an old post would be that Retro. Sindy said – “Just post something that starts with ‘re’ like renew or refresh’” So, I am answering the challenge with a post that I thought about doing about 3 months ago (so, sort of retro) when the evening grosbeaks were here. I took a lot of pictures of them, and they just made me laugh. We are all trying to make Mercury Retrograde fun since it can be so frustrating!! It will be a miracle if I am even able to post this because my computer keeps freezing. You guessed it – Mercury Retrograde!!
So in light of Sindy’s challenge, to look back and make it fun, this is what Mercury, in its sillier Self suggested I create. So here you go.
I’m a happy bird!
Dude, check out that chick on that tree to my right. No wait! Don’t look…she’s looking over here.
I’m kind of full. I can hardly swallow another seed.
Ok, but you have to promise not to tell! Any. One.
Oh, Man!! Hahahaha! Stop! You’re killin’ me! Hahaha! Please stop! I can’t even get up!
What are they all talking about? The meaning of life? Are we here for a reason?
Dude! What’s with the photo bomb?!
Huh….she seems mad. Was it something I said?
Making up is nice.
Yay! I am jumping for joy.

Lalala…My, oh my, what a beautiful day. Plenty of sunshine coming my way. Zippity do da, Zippityay!
Wow. It’s like that seed is in mid air.
Girl’s night out tonight, Gladys?
You look different. Do you mind if I just peck you on the head?
17 – 4. Ummmmmm….I know this one….
13! Yeah, that’s it. 13 Phew!
Two girls. Wow, my lucky day.
Noooooo! She likes him!
Quit looking up her skirt!
I hate it when I blush!
You must like that Tai Chi move. You do it all the time!
Happy Mercury Retrograde, folks! I know it’s exasperating and hard. Try to enjoy it. It’s almost over! It can be fun to hang out with friends you haven’t seen for a while, watch old movies, or let yourself be distracted when you have technology glitches, and just do something different. Let’s take Sindy’s and my astrologer friend, Katrin’s advice and make Mercury Retrograde FUN!
