Today is a holiday in Ontario - Family Day. Not all provinces celebrate this day on this date, British Columbia (BC) celebrated Family Day on Monday February 8th.
Deb at Just Cats had a link for all the bird feeding folks to go out & create a little love of bird seed for all the hungry birds in our backyards. This was a new way for me to put seed out. Hoping to attract cardinals, I put dried cranberries in the middle with some nuts for the squirrels.
It has been bitterly cold over the last 3 days & while not record lows, it certainly smacks as note worthy. It is the wind chill factor that can just ripe right through you, when I went out on Saturday to feed the birds, my nostrils stuck together - now that is cold. Saturday's wind chill made the temperature -34 (c). Sunday not so much wind so while the temperature was colder, the wind chill was lower.
|Saturday's Temperature - Wind Chill Made It -34|
|Sunday's Temperature - Wind Chill of -32|
On my brief outside walk to the library, I spotted in a large maple tree, a Pileated Woodpecker - a new & quite a rare sighting in this neighbourhood. Such a huge bird & oh what a sound it makes.
I am going to try out a new way for me to scrapbook. I have so many sketches pinned on my Pinterest boards, so I decided that I would start by creating the pages even before I had the photos. I am not saying that this is the only way I will scrap, but for now I am giving it a go - I need to start using up my supplies & I am looking for more satisfaction in my completed pages. This way I have a beautifully designed page & I know what direction & how many photos I should be capturing for an event. This is the first sketch I am going to use - for the fur girls album.
Mr Man got a new book about the rocks & rock formations in Ontario. I am sure we will be visiting some of these locations as part of our Summer Manifesto adventures.
I hope everyone has a good week ahead of them. I am just glad the forecast is calling for snow, which means the temperatures are rising.
