Today feels like a Sunday of old. Quiet and slow. The snow is coming down quite heavy and the wind is whipping it around so a good day to stay inside. We managed to get our hour walk in before the snow and wind started. It was quite nice.
So many birds at the feeders the last few days.
Tippy has finally figured out how to climb the feeder poles and get at the seed. She (we are pretty sure) stayed for a good 20 minutes eating out of the feeder.
Then went below to eat some sunflower seed.
She finished up with some peanuts. I was making applesauce the whole time and periodically looked out and saw her. She sat up in the maple tree holding her peanut for 10 minutes or so and then wandered off.
This little grey squirrel visited the feeders early this morning.
This black squirrel was snoozing up in the maple tree. He was quite snow covered by the time he woke up.
Snowing heavily by this time. Lots of birds sheltering in the pine tree.
Mourning doves seem to be out in all weather.
Chuck is busy today painting the guest room closet using the vanity stool as a ladder. Luckily he is pretty tidy so no paint ended up on the stool.
My Mum is doing great after her cataract surgery on Thursday. She feels she has never seen this clearly in her whole life! I am so glad. Thank you for all your kind wishes.
Quiet week this week. Our neighbours have gone away so we get to look after Toby and Oreo again. Always fun!
