Cabin Sweet Cabin
I took this picture of the back of the cabin this week. No new pictures can be expected from this weekend, though. I'm getting a rain that this morning started as a warmish, spring-like rain and as the day has gone on, it's now reverted to a cold rain, with fog.
The day is far darker than it should be, even the birds at the feeders are silhouettes except for few short hours in the middle of the day.
And though it's only the beginning of February, the birds are acting as though spring has arrived. Canada geese are all over the sky. The flickers are drumming territory on any transformer they can find. The morning is filled with cardinals singing. This is truly the weirdest winter weather I remember experiencing. Yet as warm as it's been, the local weather people are counting it only as the 9th warmest ever.
I took Baby Dog to the pet store this morning for the first time. It wasn't a huge success. She loved the car ride, was very good when I left her in the car to run other errands. But in the pet store she barked. And barked. And barked some more. She's still a work in progress.
