Coffee For Friday. #23

Happy Friday to everyone! It is a beautiful Friday morning here with a temperature of 45F (7C), which, for this time of year is fantastic! The birds are busy, though it has slowed down since their breakfast time is over. But it should pick up again in about an hour or so. Hopefully I can get the other feeder pole finished and ready to put up today. It is a bit simpler than the first one, so it should go faster.

I would also like to wash my windows today, but that might be a bit much for one day. So, maybe I will do the windows first, they certainly need cleaning. Or I could compromise and do the deck window, which is the most important one, and make the other feeder pole. That should work. Except for one thing. I am too sore today for all of that. But it might be a good day for pictures since the sun is shining.

Another autumn view on the lake.

I will probably do that before lunch. I need to clean up my deck as well. Due to working on the feeder poles, there is stuff all over the deck. That makes for dangerous walking around out there. I found that out yesterday while finishing the first feeder pole. I kinda tripped over a piece of wood. Then I wobbled back and forth a bit before falling against my temporary bird feeder setup.

Another view, but on a different lake.

That is why I am sore today. And the reason no work will get done today. Sometimes I wonder why I do these things. I always seem to hurt myself. I should not be doing work like this, my doctor has told me that more than once. But I do like having the birds around. It really does brighten up our long, cold winters. Hmm, it is supposed to be sunny all day, but there seems to be a lot of clouds moving in right now and blocking that nice sunshine.

Maybe I will have to wait a little while before going out to take pictures. Amazing how their forecast could be so “off” like that. Oh well. It is still a beautiful day, the temperature is now 46F (8C). Hmm, there does not seem to be any birds at the feeder right now. That is rather strange. I wonder if that shrike has been around again. Well, just as I typed that, 2 blue jays came flying in.

This is Chipper, the black-capped chickadee.

No other birds though, so that would suggest a shrike, or perhaps a hawk, but the hawks should all be gone south by now. I guess the blue jays are looking for some lunch. Looks like all the blue jays are back now, perhaps they were gone chasing the shrike. I will never know. Have a wonderful day everyone and God bless!

  1. Since when do we listen to doctors anyway. I rarely go to mine, he would probably have a list of things that I shouldn’t do! If you think the weather forecast is off, try living in New Zealand. Hope you recover soon and have a good day.
