Good morning on this somewhat cloudy and wet Thursday! We did get some light rain yesterday and overnight, but not nearly as much as they said we would. But it does give a nice fresh scent to the air, always smells that way after a rain. Since it wasn’t raining yesterday afternoon I decided to go for a short walk. So I got ready and opened the door and…it was raining. I really don’t mind walking in a warm summer shower, but this is a cold spring rain. Not my idea of fun, so I decided against it and came back inside after picking up my mail. Then I spent the rest of the afternoon doing other things such as cleaning, sorting and rearranging things a little. One of these days I will finish my spring cleaning, hopefully while it’s still spring. I started early enough, but then the stores ran out of cleaning supplies. Then once the cleaning supplies were finally back in stock it was too nice to stay indoors cleaning. So I’m just doing a little now and then. Actually, the cleaning part would go fairly quickly, but it’s the sorting of stuff that takes time, especially since I have a lot of stuff to sort. Oh well. It will get done eventually.
And now, some more spring pics to share with you…
Here, in the above pic, is another look at a pair of “hooded mergansers” out for a swim. The male is really quite beautifully colored, I wish I could get a closer picture but they insist on staying too far away. But hopefully one of these days.
In the above pic is a beautiful male mallard who was nice enough to come a little closer yesterday.
Another day by the river, both pictures were actually from yesterday. I hope you all have a wonderful day, stay safe, and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
