My Day Off & Envisioning Spring
Its always so nice to have a day off because then I can just enjoy doing morning chores and hanging out with the animals and I don't have to feel rushed to get things done.
This morning, yet again, there was a nice size coating of snow on the ground. That is because there is this big hole on Lake Erie where its not frozen & therefore ample room for Lake Effect Snow to come in......actually it will be here all week. Above are 3 of the ewe lambs that were born here over the summer. I am so pleased with the way they are turning out!!
Of course, they all came running as soon as they see me with the grain bucket.......sometimes I wonder if they love me just for being me (LOL)
I am thinking positive that there will be beautiful flowers surrounding the garden here in a few months. But more exciting prospects were on my morning walk with the dogs when I spotted................a blue bird!!!!!
Okay, this obviously was not the blue bird I spotted but by the time I was able to sneak up on him by the blue bird house on the fence line, he had spotted me and flew away. And do you think he would come back? No, of course not!
I went inside the pasture to check out the house............
..........a very fresh nest!!! A tad early perhaps??? I always clean out the houses in the fall ( I have 2 blue bird houses on the property). So, what is the deal? Is there hope for spring coming soon? Was that silly groundhog wrong? I was pretty excited to see the little blue bird in the yard to say the least!!
