My Chickadee Buddy – St. Peanut (and friends)

Earlier this month when I went house/dog sitting for a few day, I left plenty of food in the bird feeder to keep the Chickadees well fed while I was gone.  I hoped there was enough food anyway because the House Sparrows could have come for a feast also. When I returned I was surprised… Continue reading My Chickadee Buddy – St. Peanut (and friends)

Walking with the Deer

After seeing the White-tailed Deer outside my apartment window all summer and fall, I was disappointed to realize that they would be hidden for most of the winter.  My walks along the Seine River did not help me locate them – until today.  🙂 While walking along the trail on the opposite side of the… Continue reading Walking with the Deer

We are ending 2017 with the coldest temperatures that we have seen in many, many years and starting 2018 with the same very cold temperatures.  With the windchill (and luckily there isn’t much wind) we are around -40C and if you have temperatures in Fahrenheit it is still -40F. For a couple of days in… Continue reading Happy New Year

Every Saturday, I have breakfast at the Red Top Restaurant, which is very close to where my old house was.  It used to be… Continue reading Random Thoughts

Quiet Morning Walk

Although I often show pictures of this walk along the Seine River, I do walk if very often without my camera.  I decided to bring the camera on a snowy morning walk this morning. I haven’t seen any of the White-tail Deer that I watched all summer long and decided to see if I could… Continue reading Quiet Morning Walk
