Good morning to everyone! It is a nice warm morning again, clear sky except for a few lingering clouds from the storms overnight and the sun was about to peek over the horizon. Muffin didn’t have a good night, even though the storms never actually hit us, they were all around us and the thunder could be heard easily. And the lightning. Some fantastic lightning last night. Fortunately I brought my chair inside last night, it’s a folding type, so it stayed dry this time. So here I sit, the sun is shining so brightly, it’s just beautiful. What’s that? I thought I felt a drop of rain. I did. Suddenly it’s pouring down from a very dark cloud above me which I wasn’t paying attention to because the sun was shining so nicely. And the birds were singing so nicely. And I’m getting wet.
I come back inside and Muffin is rolling on the floor like she often does. I’m sure she was rolling with laughter. I could tell. It was the look in her eyes. I’m back inside sitting in my chair and look out the window. Blue sky everywhere, the sun is shining brightly, the birds are singing, the air is so nice and fresh. Out I go once more, sitting there enjoying my coffee and, what was that? I felt a drop of rain. I look up and sure enough, though it’s sunny from the east, the clouds have returned and down comes the rain. It wasn’t 5 minutes. I’m getting wet. Back inside I go and the rain stops. Can this really be happening? Yes. It can. I decide to stay inside anyway. Sigh.
Well, as you can see, we have birds as our pics today. The top featured image is a female mallard duck with her little ones. There is actually two mallard families at the river, the other family is smaller, only 5 ducklings but they are a little older than this family.
Then in the 2 pics above, we have “white pelicans”. I’m trying to make friends with these pelicans and each time I am down at the river they get a little closer to me. I’m thinking I should buy some minnows to take down and feed these birds. But it seems to be working okay by just talking nicely to them. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
