Paddling Upstream

Ducks make it look easy - swimming upstream, paddling against the current, trying to get somewhere but going in the hardest direction.  This duck was blithely taking it all in stride today and I was fortunate to get some shots of her.
Some days I can check off the things on my to-do list - check, check, check, done!  Other days it feels like I'm walking in quicksand, or taking one step forward and three back.  How about you?       Diane

All the time Diane. I relate with you on that! And always on days where I don't need the distraction.

Hi Diane, YES-----I feel like I'm walking in quicksand --going the other direction this week.... I'm trying to catch up on blog comments after being gone a week... The more I do--the farther behind I get.... Yipes!!!!!! I feel like that duck----pushing ahead, but it's hard.
