This & That


It hasn’t been our typical fall weather that’s for sure , we have had everything from warm , mild to hot to humid to rain to cold to frost and it has been windy as we get the winds off of lake Erie here in our valley .

I cant believe it is the last week of October already, where do the days , weeks and months go ?  The weather has been amazing  and very unusual for us this time of year  . Right now it is 20°C Feels like 24 or 68°F Feels like 75 with the humidex and it is windy  with overcast we had a peek of sun earlier this morning as it was rising over our valley shining through the clouds . I took these from our computer room window . I thought , well even though the wires are there why not  they give these photos a bit of contrast .

             Lots of early morning birds were flying over and jet airplanes way up high ! I love the vapour trails reflecting the sun rise !

Our Robins are also still hanging about as they seem to love the crab-apple berries ! This guy was gobbling them down as he tried to keep out of my sight  in the tree .

This little Chickadee was just to fast as he came down to the feeders snapped up the seed and into the tree as he sat and broke open the seed shell on the branch !

                 Well that’s all I have for today .  Still pretty quiet around here well  people quiet anyways lol  the winds are blowing leaves as they are  rustling across the road and lawn  , Crows are cawing and the Blue Jays are squawking and the other birdies are chirping and chatting  like crazy  in the Cedar trees   and I think I hear a Squirrel telling someone off in the back forty  lol   but that’s  what I like  ,  the sounds of nature ,  music to my ears   .

                                                                                       Until next time

We've had awesome weather here as well! Enjoyed your photos!

TexWisGirl said...

pretty cool criss-crosses!

Miggs looks pretty content to listen to all the wild life around...maybe the squirrel is scolding Miggs for hanging out?

The sound of nature is music to my ears as well. I enjoyed your post and descriptions today. :) I finally have seen some chickadees at the bird feeder today. I was afraid they'd left the country. A female house finch hit the dining room window this afternoon and sat on the deck for over half an hour. Poor thing. Finally she got up and flew away. I almost cried but she is ok. ;) Have a nice evening.

I love Nature's music too. Mixed bag of weather today, dull to start, sun and a nice bit of warmth is afternoon, and then a heavy downpour just after 4 pm.

Time truly does fly lately that is for sure.. I saw a robing this morning and figured the poor thing doesn't know what to make of our weather.. Ours seems to be a lot like yours, Elaine.. Take care, dear friend.. xo

That devious rascal is raiding the bird feeder, I see.

I've seen ducks eating those kind of berries, but wouldn't have thought robins would.

Jane and Chris said...

We are still hearing robins too..they haven't read the forecast ,I guess!

Love the way Miggs relaxes on the swing seat and watches the world go by.

Afternoon, pretty criss cross pictures, so neat... No Robins here left, turning colder day by day.Blessings Francine.

I haven't seen Robin's in a long time. However, the Magpies along our Alberta road trip have been plenty, I posted a good shot of one this morning on Good Fences. Have a great day

I hope that it stays warm for a bit longer for you as last winter was so long and cold it seemed! xx
