Good morning everyone! I hope you are feeling well today! It’s the start of another beautiful day up here in the north, such exceptional weather we are experiencing this year. These kinds of years do not come along too often, though they do show up now and then. And it is very nice to get a break from the normal cold and snow that we usually have this time of the year. Although they are talking about a substantial winter storm that might hit us beginning Wednesday night. Hopefully it moves slightly so it misses us.
But I guess it has to hit somewhere, if we do not get it then someone else will. We are armed with our snow shovels and ready to tackle anything! What am I saying? Maybe I will just hide under the bed with Muffin. However, we will forget that, today is supposed to be nice and sunny all day. So hopefully I can get a couple more things done outside. I have ideas again. Oops, Muffin just ran under the bed. She always does that when I say that I have ideas. Kind of strange really.
That crazy bear was around again, making noise when I’m trying to sleep, knocking things over out on the deck. He is not finding enough food I guess and he is letting me know that is not acceptable. But at least he only comes at night, so that is a plus. I’m glad I was better prepared for the early morning arrival of the birds today. At least I would have been had I remembered. Which unfortunately I didn’t. The chickadees are doing good at being first, along with the juncos. I hope those juncos leave before any snowstorm comes along.
I need to get some suet ready for the birds as well, even if there is no snow, it is cooling off this week, so it is time to get Steve’s super suet ready for the birds. I could buy some, but the birds like the kind I make better than the store bought kind. Where was I? Oh, right. The sun is now shining, the blue jays are on their second batch of peanuts, the grosbeaks have filled nearly every feeder, it is a cheerfully chirping time out there! Well, it was, suddenly everyone is gone, amazing how fast those birds can disappear sometimes. Oh well, time to head out shopping, I like to get there early before it gets crowded at the stores. Have a fabulous day everyone and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
