Tomorrow is Friday 😂

Thursday, 10 December 2020

All day I thought it was Wednesday. Even as the IGA delivery van pulled into my lane, I scratched my head wondering how he got the days mixed up. My delivery is coming Thursday, not Wednesday!

I’m relieved I didn’t question him on it! 😂 And I’m really happy to learn tomorrow is Friday. Boy, what a week it’s been. I’m thinking our outing to Magic Lights is the culprit as we usually reserve those for weekends.

Well that didn’t last! River is open again. Photo of the day, 10 Dec 2020 ©WQuinn

Blue moon and a red bird

Saturday, 31 October 2020

I just had a happy moment as I was writing this…we gain an hour of sleep tonight!

My morning started with a glance outside my bedroom window. Frost faeries covered the bottom of the window but it was the setting moon that stole the show. The blue moon.

Then there was the sunrise

I sipped my tea while watching the birds at the feeder. A male Cardinal popped in then quickly flew off when he saw my camera. I watched him land in a nearby tree and watch me.

I may have used some strong language about how “shy” he was. He flew back and posed for me. This was the longest a cardinal has stayed around to get a few shots.

I played Christmas music today

I woke up to snow on the ground this morning and it felt like Christmas. I baked a batch of Ginger Spice cookies and listened to a beautiful Christmas piano playlist on Spotify.

During these crazy pandemic times, it’s important to find joy in the little things, even if it’s still October and too early – in some people’s opinions – for Christmas 🎄 music. For the record, I believe it’s never too early to play Christmas music 🎶

I finally managed to get a good shot of the white-breasted nuthatch.

The Evening grosbeaks were back at the feeders today. This time I counted eight.

And Mrs Cardinal is becoming less shy.

I ended the day with an after dinner walk to the river. So much beauty in nature.

Oh my, what a sight to wake up to. I wasn’t prepared for a white, winter wonderland in late April. When I heard snow was in the forecast, I figured it would be the wet stuff that looks pretty but doesn’t accumulate. Ha.

Tea in hand, rocking chair pulled up to the patio window, camera in other hand, I made the best of it. Birds flock to the feeders during snow storms, especially spring snowstorms. I was in a very happy place watching the birds, taking pictures and enjoying the morning. It felt like Christmas morning, quiet, peaceful, snowy…
