Coffee At Steve’s Country #36.

Good morning to all of you and Happy Friday as well! Help yourself to some coffee, sit back and relax with us again today. It’s a bit on the chilly side this morning with a temp of -8F (-22C) but with that wind it feels like -30F (-34C). I can believe that. I went out to feed the birds and had to clear the snow off the feeders again, as well as the deck, and I was cold after that short trip outdoors. And the cold weather hasn’t quite reached us yet, that starts tomorrow.

Along the path heading into a thick spruce and balsam area.

Oh well, the joys of a northern winter. And really, this winter has not been a bad one, it has been much milder than normal and less snow. But we have had some cold weather too already, but we’re getting closer to spring all the time. The days are getting longer. The chickadees used to be gone by 4:20pm, heading off to their beds, now they don’t leave until 5:10pm. The birds are busy getting their breakfast right now. They look cold, feet and legs are pulled up under their puffed out feathers to keep warm.

Still along the path next to the river.

Speaking of birds, today is supposed to be another more in depth look at one of our birds. However, due to a mix up on my part, that will be tomorrow instead. Since Saturday is scenery day, then we will be having some nice winter scenery pics today. Just changing the two days around. It will just be for this week though. I’ll blame it on my tooth, which is still paining. Three dentists have looked at it, all agreed the tooth must come out, none of them will pull it however. Too risky, too dangerous.

Time to start that uphill climb.

So now I need to see an oral surgeon, but that could take awhile. Meanwhile I’m not getting much sleep and I’m not eating properly, though I’m doing a bit better on the eating part now. But it would be nice to sleep again. Oh well, the grosbeaks haven’t shown up yet, all the other birds are here, that’s very strange. Well, that’s it for now, but I will be back later and don’t forget, another chapter of our mystery story will be here as well. I hope you all have a fabulous Friday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  2. Steve, your winter pics would usually make me feel cold. However, Old Man Winter has decided to schedule an extended stay in central Ohio. Snow on the ground and some “blessed” Arctic cold coming soon. Wind chills will be the coldest we have seen here in quite some time. Sounds like some extra morning coffee will help.

    • Hmm, that Arctic chill is going a long ways south, it has hit us already and it’s going to be cold for a week or more. Definitely more coffee will be needed!
