Setting in my cozy home and watching the birds at the feeders on the deck and in the back yard! This year the pictures won't be as clear as in the past :0( with the arrival of cold weather we have discovered that the vapor lock in the glass on the patio doors has lost it's seal and it causes a fine fog :0( ....lots of sobbing going on here.
You may or may not notice the difference...But I DO....and it's driving me nuts.
This beautiful goldfinch was photoed with the door open.....
...the woodpecker wasn't. The first time I have had the chance to get such good shots of this critter and the darned glass is foggy....
They have never came to the deck before.....at least not when anyone was home to see them.
The least little sound or movement and they are history in a flash.....
Tomorrow when I go to work I am pricing the cost for a new sliding glass door with installation. Hopefully it won't be too much and they can get it done before really cold weather sets in. I'm afraid it will only get worse as the weather gets colder :0(
I did get lots of chuckles today from this crazy squirrel. He was determined to get on this feeder...he must have fallen to the ground 15 times before finally making it. Just in time for the dogs to discover he was on the deck and he had to make a rapid retreat to the trees.
I'm enjoying the peace of a quiet week between the Holidays. Christmas was wonderful and no where near as hectic as previous years. I have finally ...after 59 years learned not to over stress myself at Christmas :0) Hopefully I will remember to do that every year....it made things so much more enjoyable!
Now it's time for a cup of hot tea and cuddle time with the kitties.
