Weekend bits and bobs.
Yesterday afternoon I lay back on the couch for a read and before I knew it, I had fallen asleep only to be awakened by himself with an excited voice telling me to hurry and get my camera as there was a grouse outside. Still half asleep I grabbed the camera, threw on my shoes that were by the door and stumbled outside. It was a big one and fortunately most times you can get quite close.
You can see how well they blend into their surroundings.
When I first went out I didn't notice anything odd about my feet, I daresay because of the excitement, but on the way back to the house I was having difficulty walking. So, on looking down I had a great laugh. I had put on one of my shoes and one of his.
We had a bonfire yesterday morning on the back of the property. We had gathered a good bit of old wood and branches, etc. and as we are still allowed to have a fire (until May 15th), it was a good day. Hardly any wind at all and although it was nippy early in the morning, at least the sun was shinning.
I got a lovely gift from a friend in Ontario on Friday. Anyone who's had a cat or cats knows how true this is.
And lastly, the sun was hitting this Rabbits Foot Fern yesterday so thought it was worth a picture.
