A new week... the possibilities are endless!
Our beautiful Lilly on the deck yesterday, even though it was really cold.
Love how she puts her paws up on the bottom rung of the
deck railing, and stayed like that for about ten minutes.
I have been putting the game camera out for the last few days, because
it was just too cold to walk.
We have lots and lots of doves visiting us right now.
I set the camera to video yesterday... and when I
brought it in I realized the camera had been UPSIDE DOWN.
Yes, I got videos.
Can't share them with you.
So, I tried again today.
The thing I love about this video is that the three
little sparrows are bathing as well as drinking in the water bowl.
That tells me that despite the chill, they still want to bathe, so
tomorrow I'll put out a shallow dish with warmed water, and then re-warm
it during the day, as we are plunging again for one day, then
warming to the 40's.
We had a northern flicker and a red headed woodpecker in the mix,
but they moved in and out fast. We also had goldfinches, cardinals, and
blue jays, as well as juncoes and chickadees.
This afternoon, Keith and I and the dogs went to the park again. The dogs
were raring to go after being in the house all weekend except for
short potty breaks.
While they pulled me around the big track, Keith made his solitary walk around the
old park track, and then rested, waiting for us. It's so good to see him out walking again, despite the cold wind.
We saw this lone doe in the field where I had seen the 15 deer on Saturday.
Our day ended with a spectacular sunset.
Is anyone watching the last season of Downton Abbey?
I'm having to grit my teeth at Lady Mary and Lady
