AN AFTERNOON SNOOZE ON THE COUCH
I like how skies brighten much earlier on clear mornings as opposed to cloudy mornings. Just seems to give a fella that wee extra boost to start the day off. It's one of the upsides to weather's downsides.
‘HEY NO RED HEADS ALLOWED AT THE BIRD FEEDER EH’
‘DID YOU HEAR WHAT I SAID!!!!’ ‘GEEEEZZZZ WHAT’S EATIN HIS APPLE’
‘WONDER IF HE WAS TALKING TO ME’
‘YA I WAS TALKIN TO YOU!!!!’
‘OKAY THAT’S IT i’M GONNA GO TALK TO THE MANAGER’
HEY YOU OVER THERE IN THE SUNROOM I THOUGHT THESE SEEDS WERE FOR BLUEJAYS ONLY!!’
Under bright sunny skies Pheebs and I jumped into the Mudmobile and off we went. Yes, Thursday mornings coffee tour with Richard had left the Jeep pretty much encased in a thin but solid layer of country road mud. No point in washing Thursday's mud off until after we had at least got Friday’s mud on so with that thought in mind we headed out and got ourselves all souped up with another layer of good old country mud again.
Our air is still cold but with this morning's warm sun we hardly had to have the Jeep's heater on except if we had the windows down which was only momentary for a touch of fresh air or photos. Enjoyed our country road time southeast of Bayfield with a stop at the car wash on the way home.
IT’S THAT TIME BETWEEN SEASONS WHEN THE LANDSCAPE LOOKS DRAB SHORTLY BEFORE EXPLODING INTO SPRING
SPOTTED ME A PAIR OF WOOD DUCKS ON THE STAFFA ROAD
OF COURSE MELTING SNOWS ALWAYS REVEAL SOME LITTER ALONG ROADSIDES
It was a good day to begin hauling yard ornaments out of our wooden shed so I could get in there and straighten things up. Don’t know how our two sheds get themselves into such a mess over winter but they do.
I ALWAYS ENJOY THE BIG SPRING CLEAN-UP EVERY YEAR
Multi-tasking right along I was able with my garden rake to also clean winter's sludge from our front yard pond and imagine my surprise when I saw two live fish and a frog. First time anything has ever survived over winter in that small shallow pond. Frogs come naturally to the pond each Spring and Summer but how the fish got in there remains a mystery. Well sort of:)) Finally managed to get our outside water turned on for another season as well. No leaks in the hoses and everything checked out just fine. Nice when that happens. When temperatures come up a bit more over the coming days I will get at the Motorhome with my pressure washer. Oh boy that’s always a big Elephant clean-up. The interior we will do when it gets even warmer.
GETTING A FEW OF SUMMER’S THINGS SET OUT
OUR FRONT YARD POND WATER LOOKS A LITTLE GOOPY BECAUSE I JUST MUCKED OUT THE BOTTOM
MAYBE OVER THE WEEK-END I CAN GET THE PUMP RUNNING AND HAVE SOME WATER TUMBLING OVER THE LITTLE WATERFALL
THIS IS THE LITTLE FROG THAT SURVIVED WINTER IN THE POND
I WAS LUCKY TO CATCH THESE DUCKS TAKING OFF ON OUR PARK’S POND WITH MY POINT AND SHOOT SONY RX100 THIS AFTERNOON
Oh my how my RV thinking has changed over the years. I stumbled across a post I wrote 9 years ago on April 26th. In it I lament about having to leave the Southwest and come home. I Call It.....The Homecoming Blues!! Those early RVing years were our best and I sometimes wish we could get a little bit of that old spark back again.
