Day 321 - 16th November 2012 - Chickadees and the Lake

For the working folks, the weekend is almost here. It's Friday and this month is half over. Can't believe the way time flies by. Temperature is +4.7 and feels mild. Looks like fine weather for the next week. So I'm really not sure what I'm going to do today. I should get this house finished up, so it's not dragging out anymore, before I know it, it's going to be time to start putting up Christmas decorations and do my baking. Tomorrow I'm off to the Bean Dock to lend a hand at the Christmas Crawl - it's a shopping party put on my a group of down town businesses and is always lots of fun. Treats at each place, and a chance to win a basket full of goodies.
Yesterday was a rather dull day. Did all the standard things around the house and started tackling another room - I really don't know where to begin with this one, but will plod along and see if we make any headway. I went before the Law Amendment Committee last evening and had my say on why we should not split our county in two and be lumped in with other districts for voting purposes. 240 years we've had an elected representative and now they want to change it. How asinine is that! There were some excellent speakers with very good points, so hopefully for once the government will hear what we have to say and leave things the way they are.
When Lexi and I were out walking yesterday I realized I have to start getting more creative with photos, there aren't any pretty leaves or flowers, things are looking kind of blah. It's that in between time of the seasons.
Peeking through the bare branches at the lake.
This little chickadee was kind enough to pose for me.
The more I watch them the more I think they are my favourite bird.
Some white foam around the shore today. Wind was up and waves were on the lake.
Well time to get moving. Enjoy your day!
