More Snow

26 Jan

Well, it’s another Saturday with another round of snow.

We’re supposed to have more snow or rain turning to ice as soon as it hits the ground tomorrow night.  Then the dangerous cold is supposed to show up.

That means we could have more late starts and cancellations at school (which would make my dog happy), but it also means I’m going to have a hard time trying to take any pictures for the blog.  Yeah, I’ll probably be crazy enough to venture out with the camera if it stops snowing.

Outside My Window

25 Oct

It’s getting to be that time of year when I enjoy watching the wildlife outside my window.

I dearly wish Sky wouldn’t try to kill everything I’d like to feed there.

I don’t think that is something he’ll ever outgrow though.

I need to find someplace outside my fence that I can feed them.

Even if they’ll be too far away to photograph because, as you can see, the pictures are none too good through my dirty window anyhow.

30 May

It seems this past weekend was the time for all the little blue jays to leave the nest. This one I photographed in the north paddock with Minnie and Helen on Sunday.

The next afternoon, I rescued one from my yard before the dog got it.  I put it in the safety of the paddock with Minnie and Helen.

When I went back later to give Helen her meds, the baby was gone (and no feathers), so I hope its parents found it.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.
