Filling feeders & through the kitchen window.

My poor birds missed me being out at the property for a few days so I filled the feeders again today.
  It didn't take long for the Chickadees to show up and...

this little guy.
This is a very young squirrel who now will most likely become a regular around here.
He was nice and pudgy and looked like a 'junior'.
He hung around all afternoon. I think he's got my number. :)

I'm standing in my kitchen corner. 
It's big enough for a few cupboards, shelves, one sink, a small fridge and stove.
Here's what you see from the window.
The first load of gravel arrived as I took this photo. Then he got to work spreading the gravel on what will become a drive-way in the Spring. Just look at the mud out here. Before we started this little project it was all grass. We'll be a long time landscaping.

That beautiful 'potty' is in every photo. *grin*

Audrey is resting at the moment. I told her today that we are moving into a mouse-house. She almost fainted. Once she pulls herself together I'll explain to her that it is not actually full of mice.
At least....I hope not.
                                           "Grab me a cold cloth will you, deary."

Stay toasty,


  1. Audrey is a very pretty girl! Where is your 'mouse house'? Looks pretty secluded.

    1. Hi Sue - it is in the country but we have neighbours on both sides. There is a development across and down the road a bit. We can't see it from our lot, though.

  2. It's going to be a lovely little apartment. And how long do you plan on being here? you're building a house there, right?

    1. Hi Hilary - We are hoping to start building by next summer. Maybe Spring. One winter in there will be enough, believe me.

  3. For one horrible moment I thought the potty was permanent!!
