Sorry about the light reflecting in the window. I should have turned it off. :)
We awoke at about 6:00 am to the muffled sounds of cars passing on the road....muffled due to the snow falling outside....our first snowfall of the season. We were warned yesterday of a lot of snow....possibly 15 cm.....and a lot of rain for southern New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. It is zero here and in Halifax NS it is 15C. That is quite a difference in temperature.
As I write this post the snow has stopped and it's only about 11:00 so I guess we got about 5 cm. on this high ridge we live on. Just enough to make it pretty. The temperatures will be dropping to -7 tonight and won't get above freezing the next 2 days so the snow will stick around a couple days anyway.
The government plough doing its job.
It was snowing heavily for about half an hour and looked so pretty.
Snow on the hydrangea bush.
The goldfinches and chickadees were feeding.
I heard a light thump at the living room window and knew right away what it was. I quickly walked over and looked down on the deck to see a sweet chickadee laying there in the snow, wing splayed out and head bent. I grabbed my jacket and gloves and slipped into my duck boots and went out to see if it was still living. I could see its little chest moving up and down so I gingerly picked it up and protected it in my gloved hands for a while. It slowly started to straighten and move so I carried it around to the picnic table on the back deck, cleared a spot and set it down. It didn't want to leave my hand and clung to my finger. It was surrounded by snow to protect it and in 10 minutes it was moving more and flew away. They are so sweet and I hope this little one survives.
I have a busy week ahead including a little day trip to Woodstock and Centreville with girlfriends from college days to do a bit of shopping and lunch. Should be fun!
Thanks for visiting. And. A big welcome to my new followers.
Have a great day and wonderful week ahead.
I also want to wish my American friends a blessed Thanksgiving week. I know it is busy for you and you may be scarce on here so my wishes go out to you early. :) Enjoy the time with family and friends.
