Old Friend

I always marvel at how these birds survive.

Imagine searching for food underwater – summer and winter, building your nest under bridges or among rocks close to running water…

Contrasts

Filed under: Important stuff,Nature — allmycke @ 8:33 pm

Yesterday our Grade 7 students were given the opportunity to try jumping into a hole in the ice – under supervision.

ColdThis is a voluntary part of our Phys Ed program, but most students will try it at least once during the 3 years in our school. Accolades to the teachers as well!

Misty MorningThis morning the mist was like pea soup around Town and Grade 8 and 9 did their jumps without the benefit of doing it under the sun.

March Madness

Filed under: Just stuff,Nature,Personal — allmycke @ 8:30 pm

Checking back over posts from the month of March during the last 5-6 years, I can only conclude that the ever-shifting weather (snow, high winds, some sun, snow, snow…) is par for the course.

yellowIt’s probably a very good idea that I don’t remember that from one year to the next – otherwise I’d be sipping Pina Coladas on Maui!

Snowbathing

Sorry for the somewhat boring motif – but when life is b/w…

Snowbathing… and the black motif loves to roll around in all that white stuff? One consolation – I rarely need to give him a bath during winter!

Baby Swing

Filed under: History,Photography — allmycke @ 7:40 pm

Every now and then I visit our local museum, just because.

Baby seatSome of the displays are permanent, but I always seem to discover something new even in items that have been there for years. The need for beauty is prevalent even in a baby swing – notice the lathed pieces and how well worn it is. I wonder how many children ate their porridge, sitting in this.

On the Hunt

Filed under: Loki,Nature — allmycke @ 6:55 pm

Loki discovered tracks after a mink…

Hunting I

…yes, the ice was VERY thin.

Hunting II

Apparently the tracks were old because he gave up after only a few minutes.
