These go back to Thanksgiving weekend, when the blizzard was just starting to hit. Normally I would have cropped them, but you can get a sense of how much the wind was blowing around this poor blue jay!
It turned out to be a rather pleasant day today, if quite windy. I wanted to cover my late father's old car while it was still nice out, though. We'd found a huge old tarp in the barn that we used to cover the mulched area of the big garden for the summer. It was … Continue reading Winterizing progress: covering the car
I was in town this morning, and had the chance to visit the beach. Since I was last there, the town has pushed all the rocks and pebbles that the storm had pushed across the entry onto the main dock back onto the beach. The beach is still very changed in this area, from before … Continue reading Bonus pictures: a pebble’s eye view

I haven't seen him since, though of course that doesn't mean he hasn't been around.

Dave's other favourite place to be - on my husband! I just love the little bit of black on his lower lip. 😀
One of his favourite places to nap. Especially when my husband gets up for a few minutes, and the seat is still warm.
A few days back, I showed my mother this grabber that I'd found in the garden shed. We were trying to figure out... Why soup spoons? Well, it took a few days, but my mother called me up because she remembered why. My dad had used this to pick crabapples. It was such and "of … Continue reading Mystery solved
Junk Pile kitten, letting me come within a few feet to take a picture. Oh, how I want to snuggle this kitty!
