Not much to inspire a new post lately.
I've been blogging since 2008 and I'm nearing 800 posts. It seems the same things make me happy or crabby over and over.
The sun and the moon keep coming up and going down every day. Which is a good thing.
Early morning walks are colder and daylight shows up so much later.
Very few birds are left on the pond.
Most of them were wise enough to head south before the cold weather arrived.
A pair of eagles have been frequenting the trees around the pond. That's probably another reason the ducks and geese are staying away. This is a small private lake which belongs to the family of a good friend. When I told her about the eagles she was a bit annoyed. Seems they spent some big bucks having trout planted there and now the eagles are helping themselves to the free fish.
I think they may have even driven away the hawks that usually use this power pole as a lookout perch. It will be interesting to see what happens when spring comes and the hawks want to set up housekeeping in their favorite cottonwood tree.
Late autumn for me just means more layers to keep out the cold.
Soon the leaves will all be down and brown. Snow is predicted this week. I've got my windows washed so all the light possible can make its way into the house. And I'm dusting off my snowshoes and cross-country skis. No need to be a prisoner of icy weather.
