Walks, Ducks, Birds
We were out for a walk yesterday and even though it's still cold like winter, I'm seeing signs of spring. Down by the pond the ducks are active and chasing each other. Seems to me they are swimming more instead of hiding. Frodo would love to catch one, I'm not sure what he would do with it when he caught it. Some of our bushes and trees are slowly budding-another sign. I will admit that I'm looking forward to some milder weather. Just not hot weather.
Yesterday Frodo was barking in the back yard, he's vocal that way. I decided to see what was the fuss. I couldn't believe it!! He was barking at my elusive woodpecker that I've been trying to find in the mornings. He's a beautiful bird, and I quickly ran to get the "good" camera. Now I have two drawbacks. First off, I do not own a zoom lens....yet. It's on the list of purchases. Secondly, I am not a stealth person which means I would fail ninja training. So when I ran outside excitedly and noisily, he flew away. IF I had the zoom lens I could have stayed on the step and shot the photo from there. I have plans to start lens shopping and I will get a photo-I must!
Our son leaves on Sunday to go back to school. We've had a great week, all of his favorite meals were made and we've managed to eat at a few favorite restaurants.
