Print Story AHHHHH!!
i have a new job.


nearly went crazy about 2 weeks ago. barely held on.
now i have a job, outside landscaping work, and i am pulling myself back together again.

slowly.
i miss you husi.

i have so much to tell, but i feel vulnerable and insecure right now.

maybe soon.
i miss my writing.

wildlife report: 4 vultures, bloor and sherbourne. i have seen them 3 days this week. they are gorgeous. they soar back and forth between the city streets and the valley. picking up the different air currents as they swoop from the urban concrete landscape to the park, river and scrub of the don.

outside landscaping work? by clover kicker (2.00 / 0) #2 Thu Apr 09, 2009 at 07:19:42 PM EST
As in a job outside performing landscaping work, or a job outside the realm of landscaping work?

Presumably the former, hope so, it's a nice time of year to spend time outside.

Good luck with the sanity thing.

Whether there is "inside landscaping work"? I can hardly imagine having your living room landscaped.....

landscaping the outdoors by misslake (2.00 / 0) #12 Fri Apr 10, 2009 at 01:47:10 PM EST
i am working outside, in the yards and gardens.

there is indoor landscaping work, espeicially in a big city like toronto.
the hotels, office towers, malls, concourses, condos etc. often have huge lobbies, atriums, food courts, and other indor space either with large windows, skylights or with high-pressure sodium lamps.
there are potted plants, solariums, "living walls" and lots of other indoor plantings that need to be taken care of.
the indoor landscaping is very challenging. i am terrible at it. i have a hard time with my houseplants. i am much better at tending the plants in the earth.

I've been outdoors recently (nice - very high ceilings, probably expensive to heat) and much of it is already landscaped. I have pictures.

No vultures in TO. Except for the NDP and friends.


Wait, what about vultures? by MohammedNiyalSayeed (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Apr 10, 2009 at 01:21:00 AM EST

Oh, you meant some other bald man. My bad.

these are no crows! by misslake (2.00 / 0) #10 Fri Apr 10, 2009 at 09:38:56 AM EST
they are seriously VULTURES.
it's highly unusual, hence my remarks on it.
they don't flap thier wings when they fly, and they hold their wings back from horizontal, giving them a V-shaped appearence. the wings are black, with charcoal or light black flight feathers, spread out at the tips into "fingers"

they are distinct from crows, who don't soar or swoop, and who are a solid dark black. vultures are also much larger than crows, or even ravens.
and they don't speak much, unlike crows and other corvids who don't shut up, even in flight.

I've missed them, and you. Yay for a job -- I hope it's an awesome one. I'm envious that you get to work outside.

Big congrats. by vorheesleatherface (2.00 / 0) #11 Fri Apr 10, 2009 at 12:53:55 PM EST
That kind of work is very satisfying at the end of the day. You'll no doubt get one hell of a sun tan when the weather gets a little warmer.


yes! by misslake (4.00 / 1) #14 Fri Apr 10, 2009 at 01:54:04 PM EST
i have a hard time embracing the inevitable tan.
i've never liked the tanned look.
but i do love being outside!
and working!!

it's been a long winter.

I'm so glad you got a god job! Yeahs! I'm sorry you've been unhappy and/or losing it. Maybe it is time for me to come and visit you? I still have that little clock thingy of yours and perhaps even some leg warmers. Drop me a line honey bunny; now I'm gonna be worrying about you!
