Mixing Things Up…

It’s been a few days – what with a deluge of rain, emergencies and a final assignment, but I am still keeping on!

I’m sad to report that our mama goose has lost her nest.  I thought she might be okay after the first set of rainy days but the last two did her in.  On Sunday the sun came out and has been shining gloriously (until this evening).  We were pretty sad to see her gone.  The mushroom has survived but it is much smaller – more like a saucer.

I’m still on pace for the pound a week, which is a positive.  The weekend craziness meant NOT doing my Daily walk, but I still got out to do some dog and grandchild walks.  They are always great and we are becoming very alert to the changes in nature.

Today was pretty war-like as the geese along the creek are still defending territory.  THe girls were quite startled by the four of them zipping under the bridge!  And a squirrel learnt quite emphatically not to mess with nesting robins.  No pictures of those events, but you can see our lost nest, the shrinking mushroom, a redwinged blackbird and a downy woodpecker – all of which I was able to spot again this evening.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and the update.  Let me know if it helps keep you on your path as well!

Good night.


About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking!
