Scattered Thoughts.

Good morning everyone on this cold November day.Β  It’s a good day to be inside drinking coffee.πŸ˜€β˜•Β  Certainly don’t want to be outside drinking coffee.Β  It’s too cold for that.Β  The coffee would freeze.Β  So would I.πŸ₯Άβ›„Β  Muffin is at her window.Β  Now she looks at me with those cute kitten eyes saying, “please open the window?”Β  No, it’s too cold.Β  “Please”, she says again.Β  No, it’s much too cold.Β  Now she’s looking at my feet. 😼 Don’t bother, it won’t get the window open, I said.Β  She jumps down and puts her paw on my foot.😾  “Please”.Β  No, that won’t work.Β  AAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!😲 Bandages, bandages!Β  NO open window, I say.Β  She swishes her tail.Β  Okay, let’s play.πŸ˜€

Where did my summer go?

Cold weather can be dangerous to a person’s health.😬  Even when they stay inside.😳  Oh well.Β  Winter.Β  It’s here to stay now.Β  And it’s cold already.Β  Colder than normal for this time of the year.Β  That’s not a good sign.Β  But, I’m still hoping for a short, mild winter, with less snow than normal.Β  Okay, so I like to dream.Β  Now that winter is here I will be talking about it a lot.Β  Kind of hard not to do that.Β  It’s life in this area for the next several months.Β  But I will toss in some other things, warmer topics, now and then, to help break up the winter chatter a bit.Β  And I do mean chatter!πŸ₯Ά

Down by the river.

And hopefully this injury will heal completely so I can take you on a winter forest walk down to the river.πŸ€”πŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈΒ  That way you can get a better glimpse of what it’s like here during the winter months. πŸ˜€πŸ“· It will certainly be a lot different than my summer walks.Β  And hopefully the bird situation will pick up a bit too.Β  Right now there is very little bird activity out there, which is kind of odd.Β  It will definitely be a long winter without my birds around!Β  But there is always something positive to find if we really want to look for it.Β  Even when all around looks cold and bitter.Β  So stick around and we will continue to enjoy all that goes on at Steve’s Country!

The river hit record high levels for autumn.

There is a lot of ice around right now.Β  Treacherous walking outside.😬😳  Welcome to winter, that’s the way it will be from now on.Β  Yes, I know.Β  I’m not really saying anything.Β  That also happens in winter.Β  But at times winter can be fun.πŸ€ͺΒ  At least that’s what I have been told.πŸ™„Β  I haven’t found those times yet.πŸ€”Β  I think they got lost somewhere.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ΉΒ  I did go shopping this morning, have to do that sometimes.Β  Anyway, I…wait, think I will save that for another post.Β  I will stop for now.Β  I think “Cabin Fever” is definitely starting early this year.πŸ€’Β  Have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  1. Our temps are supposed to take a dip on Thursday. Of course, not as cold as where you live but for us, it going to be cold. We have a fireplace and I feel we will be using it a lot this winter. We had a very hot summer and they are predicting a very cold winter. Oh, well! 😺 β˜•οΈ β˜•οΈ β˜•οΈ β˜•οΈπŸ©πŸ©

    • Yes, the jet stream is taking a big dip drawing in cold weather all the way from Siberia! We should start to see some ice on the lake soon if these temps keep up, -10 right now and windy so it feels much colder. Cold winter ahead, but that’s normal for us anyway. Lots of coffee!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ΊπŸŒžβ˜•β˜•β˜•
