Feb. 10th., 2008

Not much going on as usual. My foot is doing fine. Could have been a lot worse. Still favoring it a bit as I don't want to twist it again before it's completely healed. Every time I get up on the ladder to clear the snow off the chickens "greenhouse" area, I think of the bad fall I had last winter, falling from the top of the ladder and hitting the ground. Funnily enough I didn't even get a bruise although I was a bit sore for a day. I was outside bringing in wood this morning and there were a lot of woodpeckers and nuthatches about. I don't know if it's that they are so use to seeing me that they let me get easily within 3 or 4 feet of them. Maybe they are like that everywhere. I have lots of pictures of them but still can't stop myself from taking more, lol.



This picture is for my friends on the other side of the Ocean who are out in T-shirts and cutting their lawn....I'm so jealous!! As you can see, we are still in the deep freeze here. A beautiful blue sky this morning but cold.



And last but not least...a friend gave me an Amarylis bulb at xmas and it is now in bloom.

And from "those over the pond enjoying Spring" it's nice to see some snow and winter pictures. We don't get much in the way of snow these days.

oldcrow61 said...

border reiver, lol, it would give me the greatest pleasure if I was able to send it all your way. Ah well, I'm living in dreams of when it's all gone.

Hi OC, never mind T shirts, it was -5 here yesterday. I wish we could get some good snow though. We used to get a bit in the 80s but I reckon we won't get scenes like Dickens Xmas cards again...

To see exactly where I am look on my blog and then to the link on the right for Xtra!

You live in a lovely place...
