Happy Halloween

 

THE WITCH

She comes by night, in fearsome flight,
In garments black as pitch,
the queen of doom upon her broom,
the wild and wicked witch,

a crackling crone with brittle bones
and desiccated limbs,
two evil eyes with warts and sties
and bags about the rims,

a dangling nose, ten twisted toes
and fold of shrivelled skin,
cracked and chipped and crackled lips
that frame a toothless grin.

She hurtles by, she sweeps the sky
and hurls a piercing screech.
As she swoops past, a spell is cast
on all her curses reach.

Take care to hide when the wild witch rides
to shriek her evil spell.
What she may do with a word or two
is much too grim to tell.

We're Ok !

 

The storm Sandy hit harder late last night with gusts from 60km to 100km  and the rain was coming down from all directions and angles ! This old farm house was creaking and a cracking but all is ok. I thought Miggy would be nervous with the roaring of the high winds and all the noise it caused but she was as cool as a cucumber ! We were luckier then some cities and towns here in South-western Ontario who had damage and are with out power .  The winds are still strong this morning and will die down in the afternoon. We have had rain since Friday and it will keep raining for the rest of the week .

Feeling Like A Duck

 

The rains have been here since last Friday and it is only gona get worse when this storm Sandy decides to hit South western Ontario .

I braved the cold rain to make sure my birdies had food and Papa took some photos whilst Miggy who loves the rain  and I were out there   .

Miggy didn’t want to look at Papa taking the photo cause the wind was blowing the rain in her eyes !

Opening my potting shed to get the birdies food . Yup I’m a shorty ! I was getting dripped on from the roof in my face !

various-1-6

I needed my step stool to take down one of the suet feeders from the tree as it was empty and I didn't have a refill for it ! I figured they have 9 other feeders of seed so they should be ok !

various-1-8

At this point Miggy was already at the door and I was cold and yet Papa kept taking photos even when I thought he had stopped  nope he snuck in a bunch , with my rubber boots and yellow rain gear I felt like a duck !              

                                                                         Quack , Quack !!

Papa and I are puttering . I still in my Jammies .  I am learning more of the program Light room that I have and all it can do  in it . I store all my photos in Light room . I catalogue my photos in it and can have them all arranged and put them in categories  so they are easy to find . It is like photo shop which I also have but  one program at a time though I am not very program savy yet lol . Papa knows both programs and is teaching me all he knows which is a lot !

A Beautiful Fall Day

 

Yesterdays weather was amazing , sunny and warm the temps reached 20ºC  or 68ºF and that was in the shade .  It’s great when there is no humidity now when it warms up makes is soo pleasant. Miggy and I went for our walk , then I sat in my chair for a bit and took photos of the birds  then walked around  and took more photos . I cant go a day with out taking photos .

                          Looks like another weekend of leaf sweeping is to be had once again !

I cant believe the Robins are still here they have usually migrated by now but I have noticed this guy has been living off of the berries that are in our tree ! I think the sudden warmer weather has kept them here !  So much for eating just worms !

                   This little guy loves his suet as he swings to and fro on the feeder !

He kept checking me out and watching me as to what I might do or if I was going to move at all .

                                   So was this Junko he kept an eye on me as well !

         This Downy likes to play hide and seek with me when I have my camera on him ! He pops in and out of the branches and peeks at me then backs off so I cant see him then he lets me see him for a second then he is hiding again it’s funny but I usually can catch his photo as he is off guard !

                         I was under our tree that's between our sheds looking up !

                                                            This tree is so pretty !

              And of course our Miggs that has no dignity at all  what so ever is loving this weather  to !

             The weather and temps are much the same now and Miggy and I are off for a long walk and more photo taking !

                                           Until next time hope you all have a great day !
