This & That


Yesterday turned out to be a nice day all though cold in the morning as you may of  seen in yesterdays post  Wordless Wednesday . But the afternoon warmed up and the sun was shining all day  not a cloud in the sky till sun set . Miggs and I went for two walks yesterday and played in the yard and watched the birdies . I went around and took photos of frozen with sunshine .

                                                          Little ice crystals on the finch feeder  .

                         Sun shining through the Cedar hedge as a little of the ice on them twinkle ever so slightly !

                                                            Icy snow on Papa’s Observatory roof  !

                             Tiny snow ice crystals  shine in the sun on the arm of my little Cedar bench Papa made for me !

                                  Trees in the valley slowly melt  ice off the branches as the sun warms them up !

Lots of different forms of ice all over the place  in the form of just ice or snow ice as the sun shines and slowly it all melts .

I like how the icy snow crunches under foot and how it looks across the fields with the odd twinkle reflecting here and there as the sun hits it at just the right angle ! Some times hard to capture twinkle on white snow  but it was there lol !

                I like how the snow crystals formed on this tree branch that is on the ground from a fallen tree and all covered in snow  gleaming in the sun shine  !

                   Little crystals all over the tired brown wild grasses as the sun warms it all up ever so slowly  all just to melt a bit and then freeze again over night  creating new ice crystals !

The sky’s were a brilliant blue yesterday and the sun was amazing and yet some things still remained frozen . This field is beside us .

Not much snow on the sides of the roads  as the sunny days we have had has melted them down more and more each day . It is nice to have cleared dry roads to walk on  especially in the sun shine .

Even the birdies were happy in the sun regardless of the cold air  the good thing was no winds  and that made it even better !

                                         Miggs .. well she loves the cold even more so when there is sun shining .

This morning  is cloudy and gloomy and we are to be getting some snow falling , how much ?  well that depends , we always get a different accumulation in the valley then the higher ground folk lol sometimes we get more and some times less and some times none . I guess it is all up to mother nature . So Miggs and I are off for our walk before the snow sets in  then putter for the rest of the day .

                                                                       Until next time

This & That


It has been fairly quiet here . The  weather has been cold with windy moment's  the odd snow falling here and there as well as the sun peeking out every now and then .  I have been busy cleaning and tidying  , slowly getting started on the spring cleaning lol a bit here , bit there  . Miggs and I have also been enjoying our walks and playing in the yard  . I have been filling my feeders still every other day critters and birds have been  busy feasting jumping and flittering from one feeder to the other .  This morning it was snowing big snow flakes and winds were calm it was quite pleasant .

Miggs has a bit  of snow on her back in the photo . She just finished chasing her buddy George the Crow from the yard .

There was a tree across the street that had been tagged by the hydro company months ago to be cut down as it  was very rotted  , they showed up today and cut it down .

I find it sad to cut trees down as they are important but if they are very dead and rotting they have to come down especially when near houses and overhead wires .

                                 As I was doing my tidying and cleaning Miggs was outside  napping under the porch on her swing  .

JANUARY 2015 (2 of 8)-2

   It started out  cloudy  and snowy but the sun is now trying it’s best to peek out as the snow gently falls here and there  sounds of the birds chirping and chatting  in the back yard from the Cedar hedge echo  through out the yard in the cold air  , it can get quite noisy with them all chatting and chirping  , then all of a sudden they stop , then start up again  .

        So yeah not much happening here  , just keeping on keeping on doing a bit of this & that  I guess you could say . I heard the storm that was to hit the east coast was really bad in some areas and not so bad in other areas , I am glad all are safe .

I cant believe it is the last week of January already where does the time go ? ! Next Monday  is Groundhog day and we will see  if Mr Groundhog has good news as to how long it will be till spring and whether he will see his shadow or not  lol makes me laugh though cause regardless whether or not Mr Groundhog sees his shadow spring is and has always been 6 weeks away  from Groundhog day lol !

                                                                                Until next time
