Sunday’s Sunshine! #35

Good morning and Happy Sunday everyone! It was certainly windy overnight, though it stopped at some point. We were supposed to get some snow too, but it never arrived. We should be getting some more snow tonight, maybe another 2 inches. It is 19F (-7C) this morning, so it’s a nice morning for this time of the year. When I went to bring in the feeders yesterday afternoon, Chester was still out there with a couple friends this time.

Nice, bright and sunshiny flowers, though I forget the name.

But soon he was by himself again and he stayed until it was nearly dark. I was beginning to wonder when he would leave. I have never seen a chickadee stay that late before. That’s kind of dangerous, shrikes like to stay out late too, and that would make Chester an easy meal. Anyway, he went off to bed finally so I could bring the feeders inside. After he left it started to rain lightly, just a drizzle really, but it was quite noticeable. So I will have to be careful going outside to feed the birds this morning, it just might be a bit slippery out on the deck.

It’s still early and quite dark so no birds are around yet. A lot of evening grosbeaks finally showed up yesterday around noon. They ate all the seeds on the platform feeders quite quickly so I went out with more for them. They all flew away and never returned. Amazing. Well, there was half a dozen that returned, but the bigger flock did not. But grosbeaks can be that way sometimes, very unpredictable.

A beautiful bright red petunia.

Muffin woke me up at midnight for her snack. Sitting there with those big eyes, pretending that she is starving. I open one eye and immediately she starts purring. Up I get and off to the kitchen, Muffin leading the way happily. I could barely keep my eyes open. Which is probably why I bumped into the fridge. And then walked into the door frame of my bedroom door as I was heading back to bed. It is a good way to wake up, except I did not want to wake up, I wanted to go back to sleep. Oh well. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

      • That’s why you need the pillow at work,πŸ˜› put your head down on your desk and nap.😴 If your boss asks what you’re doing say, “listening for earthquakes and the pillow is to protect your head from the vibrations.”πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ€£
