Its a rainy day today and only 8C in the early afternoon.   But, I guess we need the rain, so the grass will grow and the trees will leaf out.  Of course this means I won’t get any of my outdoor chores done today – guess I should have done them yesterday – LOL. So… Continue reading Jewel

Long Weekends are Good

I guess not everyone gets a long weekend as often as I will be getting them this year, but I’m going to enjoy them anyway.  I have no vacation plans so am taking my days 1 at a time to make long weekends and by skipping a few weeks, I can manage to spread my… Continue reading Long Weekends are Good

Red River Walk

Another beautiful morning here – it was 8C under partly cloudy skies when Chester and I took our walk along the Red River this morning.  One thing about the shift I work now is that I have time for a nice walk and still have time left over to get my pictures up and usually… Continue reading Red River Walk

Ducks, Ducks and more Ducks

Birds and Water

Today’s walk with Chester was after my exercise class at the Y followed by a big breakfast at the Red Top Restaurant – a Saturday tradition.  🙂   I didn’t check the temperature when we left, but it was 9C when we got back and I have no idea how long it took for this walk. … Continue reading Birds and Water

Happy Good Friday/Earth Day

It is gloomy day here after the rain yesterday and it was 4C when Chester and I took our walk along the Red River.   The only picture I took was of the big tree across the river.  I wanted to get a pair of Mallard Ducks – but ended up laughing to much to focus.… Continue reading Happy Good Friday/Earth Day
