Slow Spring

Last week I was so, so tired. Not sure why. I told Husband I felt jet-lagged and it was totally not fair because I didn't go anywhere. By last weekend I was feeling more normal though, which was a relief.

Friday, which is my usual work from home day every week, was a beautiful, warm, sunny day. We haven't seen many birds around over the winter, but Friday morning when I got up I saw cardinals out the back windows, and the feeders out front were busy with sparrows, juncos and even a woodpecker.

I thought they might disappear again, since Saturday was not a very nice day - snow and rain most of the day - but the birds seem to be sticking around. I'm hoping they know something we don't, and that it is a sign that spring is finally here.

The down side to that, we are in for more rain this week and there is still quite a bit of snow left to melt, so some people are probably going to end up with flooded basements which is never fun.

We had a bit of excitement Friday morning when a bird flew up from the basement and into the kitchen, followed closely by Frank. Frank caught the bird before we could get to it, but Husband grabbed Frank who reluctantly dropped the bird. The poor little chickadee landed on it's back, but it was still moving a bit, so I carefully picked it up, and when I released it on the patio it flew off, so hopefully it was unharmed.

Mostly short workouts this month, but fairly consistent so I am content.

Love that picture of the deer in the yard!

I get that occasionally too and it's always a delight!

Your pictures are stunning! I cant believe how much wildlife you get! Amazing! Hope you are feeling more energized. I can definitely relate to the jetlag without travel though!

Love the wildlife, the bird rescue, can totally relate to the jet lag, and YAY for consistency in activity which is SO much more important than big flashy accomplishments that aren't followed up on.
