Little nippy this morning, temperature is -0.4 but it promises to warm up to +12. It's always warmer than they forecast so should be nice day. Can't believe at 5:30 am you can see some daylight. Seems like it wasn't that long ago and we left home in the dark and came home at supper time in the dark. It's so great to have the longer days. Larry is off to a fire fighter's course for most of the day which will leave Lexi and I to our own devices. No great plans here, will take things as they come. Hopefully we find something interesting around the hood today!
It was a gorgeous in the country yesterday. Sun shone brightly with only a little wind. Got some minor housework done in the morning, then Lexi and I spent most of the rest of the day outside. We weren't terribly productive, did do some weeding but mostly we hunted for birds around the hood and in the yard. Saw my first turtle in the morning, sunning himself on a rock in the lake - spring must be here for sure! In the afternoon we were sitting on the deck taking photos at the feeder and saw some larger birds flying overhead, circling around the yard. Of course I was snapping away, hoping to get some decent pics and find out what they were. I thought hawks of some sort - probably planning to check out my feeders for tasty little birds for lunch. Guess I fooled them. It was my last Friday home for a while, hopefully I'll snag a few this summer when I have a student and can switch a day around now and then.
One of the Broad Wing Hawks that visited me.
Time for my coffee. Enjoy your day!
