A Bit Of This & That

Not so much going on here as the weather has been quit the flip flop and Miggs is not able to go for her walks or play outside due to her injury which she will be going in for surgery this coming Monday . She is doing good considering but I do feel for the poor dog not able to be the active playful dog she was just a week or so go but we will get her back to her old self in time and recovery.

On another note this winter and weather has been crappy  with very cold days more snow then we have had the last few years and now we are in a bit of a melt down for a day or two with warm temps rain then by the weekend it will all be going down hill from there for there is a big storm on its way with freezing rain and more snow . The warmer temps and rain that is to start later today and through tomorrow has the county trucks about and front end loaders scooping up the mountains of snow at the ends of the streets and roads so we don't get big floods with the warm temps and rain .

I haven't been able to get out much and take photos but I did take these few over the past week here and there .

 The birdies have been very busy at the feeders the past few weeks . It is nice to see them every day .

  Over the holidays I was playing about with my camera at night with one of our  kaleidoscope lights we have in the back yard and how it makes the snow look like water .

 Even though we have had lots of snow and cold it is nice to have the sun shining every day but the air is hazy with dampness this morning as I took this photo from my window . I am enjoying the sun sets getting later and the day light lasting longer to . I am soo looking forward to spring now and  Miggs and I getting back to our daily walks when she is all better  .

      But for now we are hunkering down for this mish mash of storm heading our way .

  Miggs still enjoys the odd cool off in the snow but now has to be on leash  till her leg is healed and she cant be walking for long periods  but like the last time she had this type of injury to her right leg she still has her happy go lucky disposition and a tale wag for all . 

                                                            Until next time .

It was great to get back to Ontario and not have that bitter cold. I’m hoping the birds haven’t abandoned us as the feeders were completely empty. Hubby got the paths shoveled around the garden to the various feeders and git them all filled. Poor Miggs not being able to run around outside, hope things go well on Monday.

I have those woodpeckers also, red-bellied ones, I think. They are so hard-working. I hope you know I'm thinking of Miggs and praying for a quick recovery after her surgery. You are good caregivers and very patient, and all will be well. Please keep us informed. Phil/Minnesota

I like the photo of the lights under the snow. The rains are coming here today - maybe up to 60mm!!! I don't like rain in winter when the ground is frozen and we have 2-3 feet of snow. Oh well. We will take what we get. Take care and have a nice weekend.
