SPOTTED THIS SOLITARY FELLOW IN A FIELD THIS MORNING
Our temps were sitting at about 35F this morning and with a stiff northwest wind our chill factor was down around the freezing mark. Kelly reminded me that since being home she has had to wear her winter coat every single morning when taking Pheebs for a walk.
WITH ALL THE RECENT RAIN THERE IS A LOT OF FLOODING AND THE LITTLE CREEK THAT NORMALLY FLOWS THROUGH THOSE TREES JUST RIGHT OF CENTER IS TOTALLY OVER IT’S BANKS AND THEN SOME
NO THAT’S NOT A LAKE OR POND OUT THERE IT’S A FARMER’S FLOODED FIELD
GOING TO BE AWHILE BEFORE THIS LAND IS DRY ENOUGH FOR ANY FARM EQUIPMENT
I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED SATURDAY NIGHT BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THESE TWO ARE NOT TALKING SUNDAY MORNING
With morning sunshine tickling the tops of our tall pine trees Pheebs and I weren’t long in getting ourselves out of our pine forest and into the sunshine. A very welcome dose of Spring tonic for sure. Again we had to crank up Libby’s heater and keep ourselves inside the Jeep out of the icy winds but nevertheless it was just nice being outside under sunny skies cruising a few country roads on a quiet Sunday morning in rural southwestern Ontario.
CANADA GEESE IN THE KEY OF GREEN AND OH MY HOW NICE TO SEE BLUE SKIES AGAIN
CAN YOU SPOT THE SANDHILL CRANE??
‘AHA’ THERE IT IS NOW……….IN THE SECOND PHOTO THIS LONE FELLOW IS THAT LITTLE DARK DOT AT THE TOP RIGHT OF THE FIELD
Not a long ride this morning with only one quick stop at the Hullett Marsh where Pheebs got out for a run. I stood on the lee side of the Jeep out of the cold wind. Half an hour later we were home again and aside from a few things around the yard I mainly stayed inside where it was toasty warm.
One of the big advantages to having a sunroom with lots of windows and a view is that it’s the closest thing to being outside without actually being outside. I comfortably slipped into my cozy little warm corner with my Kindle in hand and read for awhile while also keeping an eye on the Blue Jays, Cardinals, Black Cap Chickadees and Mourning Doves dropping in for some seeds at the feeder. We have a skylight in our sunroom and the warm sun beaming in on me wasn’t long in sending me off for a short afternoon snooze. Yep, we sure do like our sunroom alright. For years and years I had often thought if I was ever fortunate enough to have a house someday one of my main priorities would be to have a sunroom. And here I are:)))))))

It was a perfect day here in NW Texas with no wind and lots of sunshine. Paddington and I spent a lot of time outside soaking it all in. The photos tonight are awesome. If this is your rainy season when is the dry season?ReplyDelete
The sunshine sure was welcome thats for sure, just turn he heat up a bit more and will be wonderful. I do love your sunroom. Even with 11 houses I owned I never had one with a sunroom, always a patio or deck though.ReplyDelete
You have a beautiful sunroom, Al. A couple of our homes had sunrooms but none as welcoming and warm as this. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
It is nice to have that sun back! Looks like a very comfy sun room you have.ReplyDelete
We have been pretty unseasonably cool here for this time of year..and really windy! I will never have a home without a deck and screened in porch..We almost live on our screen porch in the summer! Your sunroom is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Perhaps the horses are miffed they showed up at the party in the same jacket? Love the bright greens and blues, it sure doesn't look very cold!! Your sunroom is a little piece of heaven, no matter the weather.ReplyDelete
If it's any solace to Kelly, tell her there was snow down to 5000 feet in the San Gabriel Mountains in Southern California yesterday. Our furnace has kicked on every morning since we've been here. Summer is coming! 🙂ReplyDelete
