Early this morning, I saw a pair of deer coming into the feeding area. Unfortunately, because we haven’t had them coming by in the last while, I hadn’t put any feed out the night before, so there wasn’t much there for them. Still, I got a few pictures, even through the reflections in the window. 🙂
They are both looking pretty rough around the edges! I do think they’ve been here before.
Notice the little antler buds on the deer in the foreground? 🙂
The female has some nicks out of an ear, and it looks like some scarring on her snout, too.
Aside from the missing patches of fur on the male that can be seen in the first photo, he’s looking pretty thin, too!
Just before I went to put more feed out tonight, I spotted a single deer through our bedroom window, making its way through the maple grove to the feeding area. The noise of me going outside would have scared it off, though. I hope it comes back later. 🙂
This morning, my husband’s hospital bed was supposed to be delivered between 10 and 11 pm. So this morning, we dismantled our king size bed, which has been resting on a pair of queen box springs until we could get a proper bed frame again. The mattress just got leaned on the wall at first, and the box springs went into the dining room at first. Then I went out to feed the cats.
Beep Beep stood up to say hello! 😀
Then, with the help of one of the girls, the box springs got moved outside, just to lean on a tree until they could be taken to the shed.
The outside cats were very curious about this!
Well, hello, again, Beep Beep!
I had to head out at 11:30. My mother registered her vehicle, effective this morning, so I drove her car out to meet my brother at her place, as a surprise. I was going to accompany them for a medical appointment in the city, which was also a surprise.
It turns out my mother doesn’t like surprises.
It was a long and draining day for all, but we got the information we needed, then took the time to explain it again to my mother on the way back. My brother, sweetheart that he is, drove me home before driving the 1 1/2 hours back to his place. It was a VERY long day for him!
While I was gone, much to my surprise, someone from the electric company came out to check the power lines! I was told they’d have someone out within 2 weeks. I wasn’t expecting someone the very next day! 😀 I will have to phone them again to find out what their assessment was, since not a lot of information was shared while the guy was here and my daughters were buy hauling box springs to the shed and cleaning up the yard.
As for the hospital bed, it did finally get delivered and set up, several hours later than expected. Once that was done, my daughters got the king size mattress out – I have no idea where we’re going to store that thing! – then set up the spare twin bed up for me. I had had other plans for it – plans that can’t be done with the king size bed – but… oh, well. Thankfully, the master bedroom is quite big, and there’s more than enough room. I hope it works out better for my husband. At least he won’t be losing his balance trying to get in and out of bed anymore, since he can adjust the height to exactly where he needs it.
All in all, I’m really happy about how quick things got followed through on, both for the bed, and with the electric company.
