V saw quite a sight in the backyard today. We had a visitor. We're not sure if it is a Cooper's hawk or a Sharp Shinned hawk. It was large, about the size of a good sized crow and has more of a cap than a hood so it makes me think that it is a Cooper's. He shot video of it eating it's little birdy snack but blogger is having issues with me uploading video tonight. At least I got the photos up.
Isn't it beautiful?
I'm sorry I missed it. We have had hawks visit the backyard before. I think it's because we have feeders for the songbirds and the hawks are attracted to their version of a 'bird feeder'.
Thanks to all who commented on my last post. I have been feeling more and more uneasy for the past few days. I had a dream last night that we got our utility bill and it was $732. I'm glad it was just a dream. I do worry that things will get much worse before they get better but I hate to be alarmist. V wants to sit tight where we are and just ride things out. I'm more of the opinion that we sell this house and find our acreage. Of course, right now there isn't one out there that we're interested in. I'm hoping to talk V into at least going to talk to a realtor to see if we can get some guidance on what's available. Of course, I'm not sure that I would trust a realtor to actually work in our best interest.
J14 is also in a funk tonight. Her boyfriend broke up with her this morning. It sounds like he was giving her mixed messages but he wants to try to concentrate on his schoolwork more and evidently she is a distraction. She is very down. SIGH.
One last, lighter note. This is a photo of a gift from Roger last year. It always makes me smile!
My garden stake.
These days I need all I can get to make me feel better. I hope I can shake this funk soon. The weather is warming up (although the bottom is supposed to fall out again tomorrow) so maybe that will help.
