End Of Another Year.

Good morning everyone! It’s cold again this morning. Very cold. Somewhere around -34F (-37C) type of cold. But I guess it is warmer than what it was. But it is rather hard to notice any difference. Tonight is supposed to be colder. Oh well, it is winter. And there is a lot more winter left yet. I notice that a lot of people are writing kind of a year end review of 2021, so I decided to do the same. I will keep it short however.

Let me see, the year started cold, so I stayed inside. Then summer came, it was nice and hot for a short period, but there was a lot of bears around. So I stayed inside. Now the year is ending cold. So I am staying inside. That basically sums up 2021 for me. A year of staying inside. I said I would keep it short.

Okay, there were other things that happened too, though not much. Those bears were a big problem this year, so I could not even sit on my deck with my morning cup of coffee after mid July. The bears really did mess up the summer. I could not go walking, so that messed up my summer photography. I was able to get a lot of insect pictures however, since I could get those right here in the yard. I want to start showing those but I am having a hard time identifying them. Hopefully I can start to show them soon however. The birds are busy again, all puffed out, feasting away on the seeds. It is getting hard to see them though, my window is almost completely frosted now. That is the first time for that to happen.

Oh well. Soon 2021 will be in the past and 2022 will be with us. Looks like the weather will start off the same as in 2021 though, but that is kind of normal anyway. But I am very optimistic about 2022 and looking for a lot of good things to happen. Hopefully I can add some new birds to my photo collection, like I did this year. And I always look for even better pics of birds that I already have. More walking is definitely on my list, and that will start in January. A new year of my mystery story will begin tomorrow, I hope you will continue to enjoy it as we start our new series with our first case, “The Mystery of the Beginning”. My morning posts will still be here, but there will be a few changes coming up. I will be back with another post a little later. Well, I hope you all have a very enjoyable last day of the year and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Well, that’s not fruit, just a red spot on her head, which is why the name redpoll. But it really did add to her beauty in the pic.

      • Oh, I would love to have some turkey today too! But I will settle for some toast and oatmeal instead I think! Or perhaps baked potatoes and meatballs! Muffin and I are having a great day, not frozen yet! We are truly blessed here!😀😻🌞☕☕🥶🙀🧊⛄⛄😂😹
