Morning Chat April 21/2021

Good Morning! We are having a wee bit of sunshine this morning. But in saying that, it is cold outside with the temperature getting out of bed sitting at -5.3 C | 22.46 F. It won’t warm up too much more than it is already. Tomorrow though the weather starts to be nicer. And by the weekend it looks as if we might be able to do some porch sittin’. That would be nice. Overnight everything froze solid, and there is about an inch of ice in my rain barrel. That tells you how cold it is outside. I was planning on installing some more under drainage pipe today, but at the moment the ground is a touch hard for digging. And I don’t feel like working in the cold at the moment. Reason being, the old body doesn’t move as fast when it gets this cold. You could say it rebels. So knowing that, I suspect I will write up a story or two for my newspaper columns. On another note, there has been a lot of new visitors at our bird feeder. Redwing black birds, nuthatches, sparrows, blue jays, even robins, and a few others I haven’t recognized yet. I might have to get out my bird book. Along with them, we have our two regular Crows that comes every day and one huge Raven. We call him Jumper as when he goes to pick up some food we put out there for him, he jumps constantly while he is eating. He puts a smile on our face every day, as do the other birds. Nature can sure be entertaining, if you take the time to watch them. With that I am off for my morning bowl of oatmeal with my lovely wife, and will then see what the day has in store, other than what I have planned. Stay safe. The numbers are dropping a bit now with this virus, but that is only because most people are doing what they should be doing. Staying home! Have a great day. GW
