Hope you do not get to much snow. It was in the 70's here today. I have to admit this is my kind of weather .
I got the front yard clean up and trimmed . Hubby got the shed painted and hung up some of the bird houses . It all looks so nice.
Tomorrow after work I am going to start on the labyrinth . I have ice plant to trim back out there and I have to top the Russian sages.
Have a great weekend :)

I remember several years ago on a Boy Scout Camp out, we had 2 bald eagles fly just above our heads at the same time, that was something we always remember. Then one day when kids were little had a great big hawk sitting on our swing set with his wings spread, I was getting out of the truck with my kids and held on to them tight, but that was a sight to.

Snowing again and not the big one we supposed to get Monday.

I would love to see an eagle when I was out walking.I get happy just to see the hawks around.
I worked int he yard for about 90 minutes today . Got the garden cleared of the bamboo leaves that were out there we burned a lot of the tumble weeds too. YIPPIE we are going to have to clean off the neighboring properties around us because of fire danger they are over grown .The property owners are not local soo I guess if we want our property defensible we get to do the work .
Also got the dogs groomed . They look so handsome. I want them nice and clean when they go for their dental cleaning on the 18th
I am so beat.The weather here was just so nice today Sunny and in the 70's My kind of a day :)

Everything here is budding up. It is 62* here already this morning .Finished up with the stuff I had to do in the house. So headed out to do some clean up work in the yard .Then I have to groom the dogs.That takes a few hours .
Hope you don't get too much snow and that it warms up soon. I miss spring bulbs I do not see to many of them here. A few daffodils.I have tried planting them but the mice and the gophers eat the bulbs BRATS!!!
Have a great day emoticon

Love the pictures, looks like you enjoy the snow.

I finally got back to walking this morning, schools back on schedule, life Center was opened this morning and it is mid 20's outside but does not feel bad. Couple more days of clod, and 2-4 inch snow coming Monday but then warming up. Hoping to bike soon.

March Lillie's are trying to bloom in all this, think its a little early.

Have a blessed day

. Let's hook up Dalhouise



So on Monday we celebrated Family Day Holiday by heading north 45 minutes to go see a water falls we heard about. On route we stopped to let Dalhouse out to get some exercise and we ended up snowshoeing. We heard dogs barking just up the road so we went exploring.
( left Dalhouse in the car at this spot - worried he would be dog food for these other working pups..

Well at least last nights snow was a dry dusting, still cold though. Life Center is still closed so no walking today either. Almost walked outside this morning, had enough cloths on too.


Enjoy the chicks

Great Pics I love the moss on the trees. We do not see that much moss in the desert. There is some in the mountains.
I totally agree we can not live in fear.Life is to short not to live.It is what it is and will be over when your number is up . In the meantime we need to get out there and explore the beauty around us .

So after church and lunch we went out the door for an afternoon walk. Another new area for us. There is always an under currant of fear.. Getting lost, meeting a bear or a cougar - these thoughts must be put down or else we would never get out side.. If we give in to these fears where would it stop ? -- fear of driving along the highway ( car accidents) fear of terrorist, fear of gang doings and thuds, all the possibilities are ceaseless.. We now live in perilous times if we listen to the news on the TV.. But then again staying home is not safe either with so many earthquakes and fires happening... Fear is no way to live.. For me I will trust in the Lord Jesus and accept all that comes my way and get outthere and Live.

Well supper turned out well, --- too bad I couldn't get my self in the picture.. My first time cooking lamb on the BBQ - excellent.. However I put some back into the oven to over cook it because I know Noni doesn't like rare and I was not sure about our guest.
No picture of the cake.. Forgot we were having such a great time talking and then devouring it that it slipped the mind .. it was a simple graham cracker crust cake with pudding and cream cheese filling.

LOL I just cleaned my hiding spots today. All our craft stuff was a disaster in one room also had stuff tossed on the bed in the guest room .
Dinner sounds good, I have not had lamb in years. Is it less greasy on the grill. Maybe my mom just cooked it wrong? I remember really liking the chops broiled, the roasts not so much. The mint jelly was my favorite ,Love Love Love grilled veggies. What kind of squash?
Your walk looks peaceful.
Enjoy your dinner emoticon

We have company coming for supper. So I'm cooking a lamb shoulder on the BBQ slowly. Also I am cooking carrots, squash, potatoes, garlic on the BBQ as well.
I am helping Noni clean our condo, so dusty and picking up stuff and hiding in another room - you know what I mean right...
I also went for a morning walk with the Dalhouise...

We went shopping today. in El Paso . It is a 4 hour round trip but we had a blast poking around in shops we do not have here in the boonies .My pedometer said I walked 5.5 miles

It is a cool morning, 21 when I left the house this morning and frost on windshield. Walked 4 miles at Life Center. But the sun is out and shining, and the snow coming next week is now only in grassy areas, pray that if it has to come it stays like that.

Have a friend that is selling their home and small farm, it is located out in the middle of no where with hills all around it, a wrap around porch. Would love to have it, to enjoy those sunrises and sunsets and the deer and wildlife, the wood heat in the winter and a garden spot, but only bad thing, when we get those big snow storms, we would not be going anywhere. Just dreaming though, can't afford it anyway.

Have a blessed weekend

Love those photos too, such pretty country

Had some strong storms come through late last night, but pretty day today, upper 50's. Such a pretty sunset yesterday.
Walked indoors again today. Calling for snow next Monday and Tuesday but Accuweather calling for us to have summer like temps starting in March, early spring or summer I guess.

Today the sun was shining so Dalhouise and I hit the trails hoping to practice my map skills.
Well I almost got lost, on the way back I over shot the turn and walked 15 minutes into a dead end. I was sure I recognized different landmarks as I walked on.. Ok I was lost.. Keeping a clear head I backed tracked and took the first turn that once more led me in the right direction, hoping this was not another dead end. Pew,,,, I began to recognize more landmarks, and ... Finally I'm back at the bridge and then over the knoll my car.

OH NO that is terrible !Glad you were able to save everything.
It is seriously windy here today. I have worked a bit in the yard for the past 3 days.It was gorgeous Saturday, Yesterday was a bit windy today it is a nightmare. I went onto the back side of our property and unleashed some of the tumble weeds on the abandoned property there. They are a terrible fire danger. I was hoping they will blow away . We are going to have to seriously get out there one day and clear it. It is a wreck.
We got some rain today but of course now it is much colder.I have been getting 3 eggs nearly every day for the last week the chickens say Spring is on its way. I hope they are right :>

I was off for the weekend, but Friday was not planned to be off, got an email that had a virus in it. Took 5 hours to re-image my computer and saved everything.

Weather was great over the weekend, Sunday was really windy though. Did not get my bike ride this morning however due to heavy rain, now it is cleared off but can't ride now. Had a friend tell me that in March we supposed to get the snow storm of snow storms, but they cannot really tell that far ahead.

Spring where are you?

Have a blessed day

Oh hoping to get to bike ride, we have some warm weather coming our way this weekend and next week, but this time of year it brings heavy rains.

Took my lil man, my grandson, out for pizza last night. Had a great time. Had not seen him for a week and half due to the weather and such. Way too long.

Walked indoors again this morning, came out to a beautiful sunrise. Looking forward to setting in the swing and enjoying the sunrise and the morning birds.


Have a blessed day

Glad you were able to get a walk in. It stinks when we break out of our healthy habits . It has been in the 20's here in the morning and getting into the low 50's during the day. I am wishing for Spring to get here soon.The chickens must be feeling the shift in the seasons I have a 2nd bird laying and egg When the green egg shows up I will know Spring is right around the corner I broke down and ordered a few chicks . They will be delivered the first week of march. Seems sill to have this big yard and only 6 birds . I stopped breeding birds when my back really starting acting badly .Off tomorrow and Friday YIPPIE!!!!! emoticon

Things much better today, lows were in the 40's last night so a lot of melting is going on. Got back to walking, looking at my log book it has been 11 days since I had been able to exercise any.
Toe feeling better, hurt at first when I started walking but soon didn't pay it any attention at all. Pulled muscle much better too. They say that when you are use to certain exercising and then not able to do it as you usually do, your body gets out of wack.

Only 52 days till Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a friend that cleaned my drive out for me.

Have a blessed day

OH MY! I sure hope you will be feeling better soon. Also hope you vehicle did not get too banged up. Snow and Ice are not great for much of anything if you have to go out in it.
My hubby and I were talking about how long it might take us to get off our road. It is a private road so we have to take care of it ourselves ,it is just about 1/4 of a mile to the main road from my drive. there are 5 houses on the lane . Chick at the end may have a Kubota tractor or she might have sold it after her hubby died.It would not be pretty LOL
I am glad you at least had cool birds to watch. emoticon

Wow did we get hit, 15 inches of snow was our grand total. 1/2 inch layer of ice underneath that. Drifts of 3 -4 feet, and across the back of my house. Went in to work today, had to be pulled out of ditch this morning. Should have stayed home. We are supposed to be warming up now, Hope so. Need no more of Jonas or his kinfolk.

On top of that, I broke a toe, pulled a muscle in my hip and have not been able to do any walking, or biking just a lot of snow shoveling.
Did enjoy the beautiful birds feeding out the window at home, cardinals, blue jays, a pileated woodpecker, a redheaded woodpecker, a little blue finch and all sorts of blackbirds,

Have a blessed day

Another beautiful cake. They little hockey players are adorable. Such talent :) I am sure I would have been very upset to have a wolf in my yard the coyotes are bad enough thank you.

I am still hosting the hawks at the bird feeders the one great thing about it is since they have shown up we have noticed their are no longer an over population of rodents in the yard. We were being over run by kangaroo rats .I really enjoy watching them we have a team of 4 Harris's hawks they are amazing and a at least a pair of sharp shin hawks they fly like guided missiles.
Off to work with me Have a great day

Hope you are safe and warm Lee :)

Noni was asked to make another birthday cake this week.
Wow another week flew by.. Where did it go?

I had to rescue Dalhouise this week. First time was more serious. I went to camp to speak with the owner about some new equipment. While I was inside the office Dalhouise was outside running around exploring the winter wonderland. Meeting over I open the door and there was a huge wolf staring at me only a few yards away.. Dalhouise was at the door.. I think if I was a few minutes later it would had been a different outcome. The wolf took off as soon as I step out the door.

Today Noni and I went to church, came home and there was No Dalhouise to meet us at the door... Strange... We proceed to take off our coats and still No Dalhouise - I go into the living room before Noni ... There curled up sound a sleep on a pillow on the couch sleeps Dalhouise.
What he knows he is not allowed to be there, I quickly shake him and give a gentle tug to the floor.. Phew"........ If Noni saw this he would had gotten a scolding....
Dalhouise owes me....

Stay safe Lee . It sounds like a heck of a storm is heading your way.Hope you don't loose power. I would stay off the roads too. Not worth wrecking your car or getting stuck.
We are going to drop down into the teens tonight and have high winds no precip though.
We went to a movie today it was very different for sure Quentin Tarantino makes odd films .We go to a $4. show at the theater so we don't pick the movie . Some of them have been really good some not so much but it gets us out for a while and we don't go broke LOL

It was in the low 60's here today. It was just amazing. I got in a good walk. And I washed my windows :) They were covered with nose prints from the critters emoticon emoticon I was really happy to get that done.
Hope your storm won't be too bad. My friend in NJ said they are going to get hit too .
I am wishing for Spring to hurry up too. I hated the cold !

I think our winter is over... Two weeks of snow is enough.. Don't get me wrong, it is only January still - but now we will have warmer weather and lots of rain to come.
This morning Noni and I went for a walk with Dalhouise to Shannon Falls, about 10km south of our condo.

I walked indoors this morning, and then outside at lunch. My 80 year old friend came to me this morning at my office and asked to start walking with me at the Life Center in the mornings. He has been sick and now better but needs to get his legs back in shape. He getting ready to go to Peru in a couple of months to start a church and he hikes a lot. We walked together at lunch today outside, weather was so nice, 50 degrees and sunny. One has to take those blessings when they come our way and not let them slip by. He is not slow at all for 80 years old, hope I can move like that when I get there,

Have a blessed day.

We get an owl every now and then . I hear them early in the morning . I have seen them down in the arroyo . At the house it is mostly hawks and falcons.
It is warming up a little here. It would be so nice to be able to walk the dogs again in the afternoon .

This day began alittle dreary, I didn't have too much motivation to get outside.. Dalhouise didn't care about this mood - he wanted his walk. After Noni and I did go to the swimming pool - the pool felt cold today. The hot tub seemed extra hot.

Today woke with a sore back, sat around for awhile, but finally I ask Noni if she wanted to go out.. Out the door we went. I parked the car at a different entrance to walk around Nexen Beach and some of the Estuary - took longer than I planned but it was a good time out.

They are saying we may get a bit of snow today .Boo I am going to run errands after work. I was out yesterday day. I picked up two new bird feeders .One is for thistle the other is a mixed seed feeder. I am hoping to bring the birds closer to the window . I downloaded the free Audubon app onto my phone .I seem to like it.It makes it easier to figure out the new comers to the feeders .My book is a bit limited and the pictures are not as great as the ones on the app.It also has a space where you can share your site ting and record notes.I think once I figure out just how to do it I will really enjoy it.Off to work with me :) emoticon

This morning went for a quick walk around the block.. It looked like rain was coming.. It began to snow - snowed all day.. There went my idea of driving to Vancouver to go to the movies - Star Wars..
I sat on the couch all day... Noni made bread - I put a pork shoulder in a crock pot ...
Around five I decided I needed to get outdoors so out we went..




Pine Siskin

Fox Sparrow



We went out for an evening walk - lots of snow all day

Sorry to read about your trouble Lee. Hope the septic is okay now. Flooding is terrible I hope everyone made out okay.
The weather sure has been odd this year. It has been so cold and dark in the desert. I am used to sunny days that start out cold and then warn up.

I'm back. Had a good Christmas with family. The weather was bad though, it came a flood Christmas day and I mean a flood. Took several days for water to finally go away. Had shut down septic system but houses below me had water coming up in their homes. Temps were good, we had a high of 77 for Christmas but this time of year warm weather means lots of rain.
Now cold is setting in, snow flurries this morning. Have been enjoying what we call the "snow birds".

I would love to see an otter in the wild I just think they are adorable. I have never seen a seal either . You really live in an amazing place. Thanks for sharing it with us :)
They are calling for more snow down here so you know I am not happy.I am hoping it will miss us again ;)

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

It looks so beautiful there. I have the grand girlies for a sleep over. We are going to take them out for lunch tomorrow and to a big used book store.And whatever other adventure that might cross our path.
Today while looking out at the bird feeders my oldest grand daughter pointed out a bird she likes.It is another new visitor to our feeder. Dark eyed junco SQUEEEEEE I started putting out a seed mix along with the black oil and the thistle .It seems to be a hit with a lot of the birds :) emoticon

That is such great exercise!!! Hope you had fun. I loved doing stuff like that when I was younger. Then I moved to Florida and I turned into a big Winter woosie . I can't take the cold anymore. Have fun and Thanks for sharing :)

Mallard Ducks

Hooded Merganser

Bald Eagle





We are having some snow. I take Dalhouise outside. We walk on lease until we clear civilization - I let him go free and he turns around and head backs home.. I catch up replace the lease and continue on our walk. Half way around the pond walk I let him go free again.. We walk enjoying the snow till we get to the turning point.. One way is a long way home and one is short... Dalhouise takes the short trail..
What a funny dog !

“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

So we braved the shopping terrors and drove to Vancouver to enter the mall. Traffic was out of this world. Crowds of human bodies filled every available space in every store / shop we entered- but we survived.
I had to buy Noni a gift.. I see this hot pot cooker... I grab it. Noni is with me and does t say a word... Once we get home I tell her this is going to be her Christmas gift.. .. Hey at least it is not a vaccume !
No it doesn't count... I'm informed... It is for both of us.
( next day I take Dalhouise out for a walk - stop in a store again and buy her a few personal things like chocolates and headphones.. That is personnel...)
Anyways we can't wait till Christmas - we open and use our HotPot ....
It was delicious ..









. It sure did taste good and I think very healthy and low in calories

Dalhouise didn't care.. He is just happy we are all home together
