I am enjoying these quiet days of winter. I also am enjoying Chuck's working only two days a week too! I am a morning person by nature but getting up a 5:30 on a winter morning is definitely harder then in the summer.
The sun has been shining at times over the last few days. I took this behind one of our local grocery stores. The store backs almost right onto Lake Ontario and I had been curious what the view was like behind the store. It was freezing early Saturday morning when I took this but so pretty. I am sure the guys unloading their trucks wondered what the heck I was doing!
On our walk we pass by a large piece of privately owned land that is fenced all around. The pine trees were planted in perfect straight rows at some point. It reminds me of the forests in Nova Scotia.
The predominant bird at our feeders these days are the junco's. That is the only thing I miss about our last home, we had a wider variety of birds there.
We received some snow over the weekend too.
It didn't amount to much, just enough to cover the grass.
Later in the day the sun peeked out.
Sunday we made a quick trip into Trenton.
Clouds hanging over the Lake.
Miss Kitty relaxing in her basket. I try to clean out her eyes but I am not entirely successful. I can touch her for so long and then no more. I can't pick her up as she is so skittish still but she is warming up. She let Chuck cuddle her yesterday but she still wants outside after awhile.
It snowed a bit yesterday too. Very light and powdery snow so easy to shovel.
I am very glad we have plants with some winter colour here. Anything to brighten up the days. How many more days until Spring??? Sixty nine or so, not too long!
