Mergansers

Filed under: Nature,Photography — allmycke @ 8:24 pm

I got to watch to male mergansers have a go at each other over a female who seemed decidedly aloof…

Mergus merganser IShe was preening herself, while the challenger closest to the camera was chased away.

Mergus merganser II

I don’t think he was too crushed because of his defeat, though…

Easter Lambs

Filed under: Nature — allmycke @ 7:40 pm

One of my cousins and his wife are running a small farm operation outside town. They have sheep and a few hens…

Babah

These three were orphaned because the ewe became ill. They were delivered by Caesarian a couple of weeks early (Isabel is a GP, so she knows what to do) and now they have survived their first weeks being bottlefed. Naturally they are not as well rounded as lambs who have gone full-term but I’m sure they will grow up to become just a boisterous and crazy-happy as other lambs.

This Little gal was jumping all over the Place and I couldn’t get a better picture than this in the small area where she lived with Mom and two siblings

I got an appointment with an excellent naprapath – the day before a major weekend.

Friday Goodies

For this I’m grateful and my back/neck is slowly getting back to normal.

Easter Holidays

Filed under: Funny stuff,Personal — allmycke @ 6:58 pm

I’m off work for a whole week, but it hasn’t started all that great. My neck and shoulders are all tied up in a knot so I’m considering a visit with my friendly naprapath. I haven’t been to her in years, but now it seems I can’t fix this on my own.

Hewey getting ready

This just a picture from the other  day, -JA- was getting the reindeer ready for pulling a sled. Hewey doesn’t seem to mind, does he`?

Reindeer Power

My niece got to try some different driving today…

Lina and Hewey

Instead of masses of horse powers (as in big trucks) she was treated to a drive with a reindeer in front of a sled.

Welcome Visitor

Filed under: Important stuff,Personal,Things that make me happy — allmycke @ 7:01 pm

My sister’s daughter (my other niece) is stopping by for a few days on her way back home from a job interview. Her home is some 450 km to the south and her interview was another 400 km north of here… working as a trucker for a mining outfit. She turns 22 in less than a month, but handles 18 wheelers like I do a mid-size car…

For me

Weekend

Filed under: Loki,Things that make me happy — allmycke @ 9:16 pm

I’m spending the weekend with Dad and -B- and as usual I feel as if I’m being wrapped in a huge, warm blanket. Loki is also acting as if he’s at a retreat…

This is by far his favourite spot while we are here – on the kitchen sofa with two pillows for his head.

Resting

Antibiotics

Filed under: pity party — allmycke @ 5:58 pm

I’m not about to complain – but a 10-day cure of penicillin really nocks me for a loop! I’ve been working since Monday and it’s all can do to get some food when I get home and then head for the couch until the hour is decent enough to go to bed.

Bridge

Still have 2 days left of the meds – but like I said, I’m not caomplaining! I’m just not used to feeling this weak and feeble…

Pneumonia

Filed under: Just stuff — allmycke @ 8:56 pm

… is no fun at all.

Rebnis I’m on an antibiotics cure specifically geared at pneumonia – and all I want to do is to sleep. Today was the first time since Tuesday that I actually was able to go for a longish walk.

Statistics or..

Filed under: Important stuff,Work — allmycke @ 4:07 pm

This morning on the news there  was a piece on TV about a recent survey which really made me wonder:

65% was of the opinion that charter schools is very good. 55% had however answered that the existence of charter schools leads to inequities in education.

Fence

In other words – fully 20% of those who extoll the virtues of charter schools, see no problem in the fact that more children are getting substandard education when those who can move their children to private schools do so!

Lord help us!
