Now on to the weather.....
This is the end of last week,
This is today
there is still some snow where it has been plowed into a pile
but the ground is soggy because of heavy rainfall on the
Needless to say there is a bit of a pond in my basement, and it
will take a while for it to dry up. More rain is expected tonight
I think, or tomorrow.
The sump pump is earning its keep.
This is a painting I did back in 1983 of Birchtown Bay,
and Shelburne Harbour, in Birchtown NS
where we lived for three years.
This scene could be seen from our dining room window.
I reminds me of my basement floor the way the water hugs the beach. I
have some water areas and some dry areas.
Sadie and I took a little walk around the property, picking up things that had blown around in the past wind. I'm sure I missed some things. I was surprised that there were some things still standing, like the little shed out front. The wind blew very hard, and I thought perhaps I would end up in Kansas.
I realize how little walking I do, because when I came in, I hurt all over. I like to blame that on the weather, but I know it's the fibro acting up. You would think that going up and down steps each day to the basement and the bedroom would count for some activity, but apparently not. I sit to do my painting and crafts or at my laptop, but I have to get up and walk around after a while to walk off the aches. I know sometimes I sit too long at one thing, especially painting, but I sure know it when I move. I just remembered that I need to go and tidy up my bird food and containers. I just left it when I came in from outside.
Last night, just at dusk, there were six deer in our backyard. They were there for about 10-15 minutes at least, munching apples on the ground around the 2 apple trees, and also eating a few of the young branches. I couldn't get a picture because it was so dark, and eventually something startled them and they headed back to the wooded area.
