Well .. we have our bitterly cold winter temps here now , with the wind chills it has been feeling like – 25C BRR ! and that has kept us in for the most part , as well as being busy as it is that time of year and I have been a bit under the weather to . I cant believe Christmas is so close already .
The birds have been feasting at the feeders in the snow squalls we have been having and today we had a nice clear blue sky and sunshine whilst everyone north of us had been in a winter storm and all were closed and canceled , yeah know it is bad weather when snow plows are pulled off the roads .
I took these photos from inside the kitchen , these feeders are closest to the house , the others are across the yard in the back by our crab apple tree and all are full of hungry birdies and critters in the back .
Miggs keeps trying to go out and stay out in the sun but the temps and winds are just to cold so she wonders back to the house and barks to come in .
Just to cold out there for her now that she is getting older , I can relate to that for sure lol !
We have a bit of Christmas shopping to do tomorrow as Papa is taking the day off and this weekend we are expecting a big snow storm , so we shall stock up and get all things we need done tomorrow and then by the weekend we will be cozy inside with the wood stove going and watching movies I expect lol !
Well other then this things have been pretty quiet here , over the Christmas holidays Papa will be tearing the mudroom/laundry room apart and re vamping it with all new walls and storage cupboards and brightening it up , so looking forward to that and hopefully the kids can make it down for a day or two this year again over the holidays that would be nice to see them .
On a sad note , these past few days my in laws had to say goodbye to their old dog Shadow . She was 10 and had bad hips and back legs and Sercombe to them . We will all miss you Shadow and Miggs will miss playing with you and having a visit .
RIP Shadow .. we love you
Until next time .
Take care and be safe in the winter storms over the weekend in Ontario and any where else they may hit .
