BRRRRR it's cold out there!
Too cold for us to walk today.
Yesterday, Hailey and Zaphod asked us
"When is it too cold for us"
Lilly and I could walk in just about anything... except, she will be
ten this year and is slowing down a little.
Little Jester, however,
is another question.
(Jester's first Instagram photo)
With his short coat, he is more prone to feeling the cold
more when the weather is bad.
I have ordered a nice coat for him, and it should be here later this week.
So... the temp today is 25, with a wind chill factor bringing it down
to 15. Too cold for Jes.
The sun is shining, and we DO warm up from the walking... but,
I think it's just too cold for us.
The next three days will be much better, temps are going up to the forties
again before they drop to the teens.
Look who came by this morning, early:
(It was windy)
I ran downstairs to see if I could get better pictures.
(It saw me moving, I think)
And it took off.
I had to go to the post for my bi-annual mammogram this morning,
and saw this one on my way back.
That's a redtail, the other was the Cooper's hawk that has been
coming here regularly.
Back up to the picture of Jester on top.... that was done with
Superphoto, which I downloaded to my phone. (Android). I did not
pay for the full program, because I read some of the reviews and there
are still bugs with it.
So, I took a look online to see what some of the most recommended
programs were... and Instagram was one of the most recommended. I have not
looked at it closely yet, but it appears to have lots of editing capabilities.
Our little Christmas tree is now downstairs in storage... it has been stripped for several weeks.
I left the one in the bedroom, it's such a nice tree and looks beautiful in there at night when I remember to turn it on.
I did buy a few Christmas decorations on HUGE discount this morning, including a
package of red and gold plastic bulbs. Next year, red and gold is going to be the "theme" for the
living room... the little tree will have our regular family decorations in the bedroom,
the skinny prim tree in the bedroom will move to the tv rooms, and
the bigger tree that we did not use this year will have red and gold.
The mantel will have all red and gold, and I hope to have lights working on it.
I am going to run downstairs and clean the windows down there,
in case the hawk comes back tomorrow!
