What I Saw This Morning...

 I have gotten into the habit of opening the kitchen blinds the minute I get out of bed, because you never know what you are going to spot... and it just takes a minute to miss it. Some mornings there is nothing, but some mornings you will spot something completely different. This morning it was a pair of black birds that had a huge wing span... and this was across the yard and above the trees. I would say that it would likely take 2 minutes to walk from the front door to the wooded area that encloses the yard. And then the birds were flying above the trees!  And even from that distance, the wing span was amazing.  Will have to do a bit of "googling" to see what kind of birds are in this part of the province!

Are You In a Bad Place?

 "Some days, 24 hours is too much to stay put in, so I take the day hour by hour, moment by moment. I break the task, the challenge, the fear into small, bite-size pieces. I can handle a piece of fear, depression, anger, pain, sadness, loneliness, illness. I actually put my hands up to my face, one next to each eye, like blinders on a horse." Regina Brett

How Cold Does It Get Here??

 Most of the work has been completed in the fields.. our son does soil sampling so the farmers know what fertilizers to use. This morning he received a call to go out to work on the weather stations. It's -28 c at the moment. He left the house wearing 7 layers... hoping that it will be enough! And that is not taking into account the wind chill!!

My Morning Sighting...

 This morning at breakfast, we spotted 4 deer make their way leisurely across our front yard, heading for the woods.  We saw them about 5 minutes later far in the distance in a field. Guess that it was breakfast time for them too. I don't think that I will ever get bored with the animal life in the prairies. Okay, scratch snakes... don't like them at all!!
