It's a dull day with a wintery looking sky. It appeared that we might get a bit of sun a few times during the day as the cloud seemed to be breaking a little. Alas, it was not to happen.
A few days ago I thought it might be a good time to put some more xmas lights outside as himself is in St. John's this week and wouldn't be here to get in my way. I hauled out a couple of lengths of lights, got the ladder and put the lights over and down one of the archways. I had a good laugh at myself because of the gyrations I had to do while up on the ladder, to get the strings of lights tied on. I was thinking if I fell and knocked myself out and had broken legs, I wonder how long it would take someone to find me, lol. I sometimes think I'm a 20 year old and invincible.
Then I found a 6 ft. artificial tree to put on the deck. I got that set up, put strings of outdoor lights on it and I was off to the races. I then found some poinsettias, put those in two long planters and "bobs your uncle", it's all done, except for wreaths on the doors. We don't usually decorate outside but this year we thought we'd go all out.
Not many birds around these days. Four pairs of jays, hairy and downy woodpeckers and chick a dees are back and forth to the feeders all day long. I expect when the snow flies there will be more of a variety. I did get a few pictures this past couple of days.
Chick a Dee. It's difficult to capture these little creatures with the camera as they don't stay still for long.
That's it! One of the cats near me is breaking wind and I have to get out of here. It stinks!!!! I have a good idea who the culprit is, lol.
