Coffee And Musings. #9

Good morning to everyone and Happy Monday! I do hope you are having a good start to your week. I know sometimes it may not seem like it when it means back to work again. But try to keep that beautiful smile going today that I know you all have. I will not bother doing my daily weather report, after all, who likes to hear a daily weather report anyway? Well, actually, I do. But I am a bit strange.

Coming in for a landing. They use those big webbed feet of theirs as skis for a nice landing.

However, you all know that anyway. But just to be different we will not have it today. Besides, the weather this week does not look so good anyway. More rain coming. And more rain. Some people would love to have rain right now because of the heat and forest fires in so many places. But here we do not really need it at the moment. But, we get what we get.

Preening the wing feathers.

And it does give our forests a chance to recover a bit from last year when we had so many forest fires. There I go talking about the weather after saying I would not. Sigh. Yesterday was fairly hot here, though not exactly like other places, but for us it was hot. Still, my apartment did not overheat like it usually does, but it was only one day. It takes two or three days to really push the temperature up high in here. It was only 88F inside, about the same as outside and cooler weather is on the way.

Gathering for a bit of bird talk.

I am still talking about the weather when I am not supposed to be. Sigh. Muffin is not enjoying the heat however, though she did get a reprieve on Saturday after a hot day on Friday. Hot for us that is, not really hot. Muffin is a cool weather cat. So she basically just sleeps in this kind of weather. I am going to stop now. The pics today, as you can see, are the white pelicans that I was going to show on Friday, but did not.

Another one coming along to join the group.

That was because I did not post my usual Friday morning coffee post, due to circumstances beyond my control. I like taking pics of pelicans, they are fascinating birds. I am sure I could spend all day down at the river taking pics of those huge birds. Yesterday morning the crows suddenly got real excited about something cawing loudly so I looked out the window to see if I could find out why. I was thinking perhaps a hawk or an owl might be around.

This one is heading upstream for some fishing.

I was wrong. Nothing unusual about that. Anyway, it was a fox and it had something in its mouth but I could not tell what it was. Likely it was bringing breakfast home to the family. Hopefully it was not one of my chipmunks though. Speaking of chipmunks, they were not around much yesterday. Perhaps it was too hot for them so they stayed home where it would be cooler. Well, thank you for stopping by, have a marvelous Monday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  1. Hey, I LIKE talking about the weather! Lex had some wonderful cooling rains all last evening and today. Afterward, though, it started to heat up and is VERY humid! Only 80F (27C) but with the humidity, as the sun comes out, it feels like 95F (35C)!

    • It is a popular pastime up here! Right now it is 83F but feels like 95 with the humidity. We had severe thunderstorms hit us last night and more are in the forecast for tonight with a heavy rainfall warning for us too. At this rate our lake and river will stay high right into winter!๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™„
