We are well and truly into winter now. Yesterday parts of the Trans Canada Highway were closed and many schools and business's shut down. People were told to stay off the highway and many were stranded. The RCMP were out looking for stranded motorists and bringing them home when found. There were blizzard conditions in a lot of areas. By mid afternoon it had calmed down and it turned into quite a nice day.
I've been doing some spring cleaning. A bit early but I was bitten by the bug and so I got through two rooms. There's also been a bit of shoveling of snow this week so I've been getting lots of exercise. Badly needed I might say.
The Flicker was back a few days ago on the suet block by the back door. Unfortunately he saw me come to the window for a closer look and took off. I did get a picture of him when the snow was coming down.
The birds have been keeping me busy. In and out filling feeders on these cold days. I haven't seen the crows for a couple of days and this has me very upset. They come every morning for breakfast and check for additional treats throughout the day.
The setting sun was shinning through one of the plant hangers the other day and I thought it looked rather nice.
Our oldest cat and the grumpy one, Ratch.
And an odd picture of one of the boys. Malachi.
I'm chomping at the bit now waiting for spring. Got the seed catalogues out and making plans.
Once we get through March we should be well on the way.
