Rainy day Tuesday

Tuesday, 20 October 2020

I am running out of clever titles! It started out rainy but eventually the sun came out and it was beautiful!

I have always wanted to see a sky filled with starlings doing their thing. You know what I’m taking about? How they move in unison, dancing on the wind. Well…I found myself standing at the kitchen sink, doing what, I have no idea, when I glanced out the window and saw a swirl of black dots dancing by. I called out to Mom, ran out to the veranda, watched in delight then ran in for my camera. They were further away when I got the shot, but still so cool!

Wednesday, 22 April 2020 – Happy Earth Day!

I saw a funny post on Facebook, or maybe Instagram…No, it could have been Twitter…I guess it doesn’t really matter does it? Back to the funny post. God and Mother Nature were having a conversation. God mentioned how the people weren’t getting it, they weren’t staying home. Mother nature says to God: hold my beer, which is followed by a snow storm image.

We’ve been getting a lot of that lately. Crazy cold weather. The wind was blowing so hard last night I didn’t know if anything would be standing this morning. Thankfully everything was still standing and we had another dusting of snow…Mother nature is so good to us! At least blue skies were prevalent all day…It took the sting out of the -13°C windchill.

The morning was quiet while I waited for the grocery delivery to arrive, sometime between 8 am and 1 pm. I made a fresh batch of suet for the woodpeckers. Woody seemed happy to have it.
