Extra kitty pictures! I popped into the basement for a moment, and just had to come back with a camera. The kittens are now big enough to get onto the counters now! Glancing at the drill press and seeing a kitten looking back at me was most adorable. We will have to keep an eye … Continue reading Bonus smiles!
I was able to pause on my way home this morning and get some pictures of the bison not far from our place. The entire herd was ambling its way across the field, close to the fence. When I stopped to take pictures and watch them for a bit, this baby bison at the fence … Continue reading Bonus critters: being watched!
On my way home from town this morning, I saw the bison were usually close to the road, so I just had to stop and get pictures! To the left of the above photo, you can just see one of this year's babies, lying in the grass. The larger bison lying near it would be … Continue reading Bonus Critters: big shaggy babies
Today is a day of all kinds of progress. And some not-progress. Some progress is happening as I write this, but that will get its own post. 😀 Progress: mowing in new places. After many delays, I was finally able to start mowing yesterday, only to have it start raining. Not that I'm complaining about … Continue reading Progress
So yesterday was a pretty full day! Before I get into it all, though, I wanted to share these pictures, taken on our way home yesterday. I'm always thrilled to see the bison this close to the road. Such beautiful creatures! They are quite well insulated from the recent cold... ...and quite enjoying themselves; earlier, … Continue reading Snow Bison
Driving home from town this morning, I was happy to see the bison were by the fence - on a day when I had the DSLR with me! Though the orange haze of this morning was fading away, it was still smokey, as you can see in the background. This adolescent bison seemed rather curious … Continue reading Oh, my shaggy friends!
The babies are getting so big! I love when they are at the fence by the road. Such gorgeous animals. On a side note, when the time comes to replace our fences, this is kinda what I want to have. Pressure treated wood posts, and a steel wire mesh, rather than the barbed wire we … Continue reading Beautiful Shaggy Friends
My older daughter came with me when it was time to pick up her sister from work. Since UPS hadn't delivered my birthday present yet, I asked my husband, who had had to lie down again, to be up in case they came while we were gone. We also made sure the gate wasn't locked … Continue reading For Real? LOL
On the way to the dump today, we passed by our neighborhood bison farm. They were close to the fence by the road, so we stopped to take pictures. 😀 I'm going to have to look into getting a camera I can take with me in the vehicle when we drive around. Zooming in on … Continue reading Shaggy, shaggy friends!
Early this morning, I spotted some movement at the edge of our spruce grove. It turned out to be a bird, enthusiastically digging and pecking at the ground. A surprisingly large bird; not as big as a grouse, but certainly bigger than a blue jay or crow. Not something I recall seeing before. Unfortunately, it … Continue reading Shaggy friends, a new bird ID and… a mystery!
