With the fires in the area, it's no surprise that we aren't seeing any deer, at all. It has, however, been a day full of birds outside our window. Mr. Blue Jay allowed me to take his photograph today, though they certainly did make me work for a good shot! In amongst the masses of … Continue reading A Day for the Birds
First, thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and said prayers for us about the fire. It is so much appreciated! I have since learned that two homes were lost yesterday. Sadly, one of them did not have insurance. I hope to learn more soon, and see if there is someone organizing help … Continue reading Fire Status
Got a call from my brother next door, letting me know there is a fire in the area. We couldn't see it from our windows until I went out clear of the trees. I then drove a mile south up the road to see better. This is to the south west of us. The winds … Continue reading Fire in the area: Update.
Oh, my goodness, what a windy day it is today! As I sit at my computer, I can see the trees behind the other house in the yard, swaying back and forth. This is the sort of weather that brings trees down! I'm rather concerned about that. Oh, I just heard a door banging. Excuse … Continue reading Windblown
Alas, no pictures of deer today. I did see one cautiously making its way towards the house, just a few minutes ago, but it saw me move in the window and dashed right off. Sadness. I did, however, manage to get a photo of a blue jay today. For the past few weeks, even if … Continue reading Blue for You
For the past while, we've had a huge drop in deer visits. I didn't see any yesterday, until quite late, when one showed up, then ran off when it saw me in the window. Pretty sure it was a new one, since our regulars are no longer bothered by seeing us. We are certainly getting … Continue reading That Circle of Life thing… and I hate shopping
This morning, I took my younger daughter for her knowledge test to transfer her driver's license to this province. To recap: she did not have a full license; just the learner's license. She never had a chance to take her road test. When she tried to transfer her license, once they saw it was a … Continue reading One more thing, off the list
I had done a walkabout yesterday, through our East yard, some of the areas just outside the fenced yard, and explored around the old gravel pit and pond. I had my phone with me and took plenty of pictures, but then had technical difficulties uploading them to my desktop. My husband was able to see … Continue reading Walkabout – the East yard
Today has a mixed bag of things to share, some of which will be in other posts - if I can get the pictures off of my phone properly. Something is going wrong there, and it looks like I've lost a whole bunch of pictures in the process. Ugh. My husband had a medical appointment … Continue reading Deer family, and what the heck?
Earlier today, while in my office, I heard a loud bang on a window somewhere. Going to check, the girls, who were in the kitchen, were also wondering what the noise was. We've had many birds hitting our windows lately, and that seemed likely, but never this loud! So I went outside to check. Sure … Continue reading Stunning!
