Thursday Thirteen


Thirteen recent changes in our neighborhood:

  1. We heard a few geese come back last week, and only saw two ducks and two swans at the wetlands last weekend, but this morning I heard many, many geese overhead.
  2. Last night, when I took the puppy outside, the coyotes were singing.
  3. I found evidence that the deer had been in our yard last night.
  4. Our cat, Sadie, is a solitary old man. This morning, I found our new puppy, Shiloh, sleeping next to him on the sheep skin that gets the morning sun. Amazing.
  5. I was able to get the doors to the “barn” open this morning.
  6. Having the new puppy is changing Zuva’s (now no longer “the puppy”) attitude. She actually sat when I asked her to!
  7. Our dugout is overflowing its banks today.
  8. My little man enjoyed his spaghetti dinner so much tonight that he was shoveling it in his mouth. He didn’t want any help — wubby was too slow! lol
  9. With so much snow having melted, you can now see the bird seed on the ground that kept getting blown and covered by wind and snow each time we replenished it this winter.
  10. At times, the bird seed looks like it is moving because there are so many different types of feasting birds.
  11. The neighboring kids have put away the snow mobiles and now have the four-wheelers and mini-bikes out to drive the dogs nuts.
  12. Although the snow is melting very quickly, there are still many places where the snow is so deep that you will get stuck if you attempt to walk through it.
  13. I liberated many of our gardening implements today! So now the Spring can officially begin.
