✿ ✿ ✿ ✿A few very light sprinkles of rain but it was mostly just cloudy during my walk this morning. It was 44 degrees with a slight breeze. I woke up late so didn't get started walking until 7:30. I really dislike the time change because now I'll be walking in the dark again. Since I left late today though I didn't have to walk in the dark.
Dropped off a couple of bills, one at public works and one down the mail slot at the post office. Then had a random walk all around town.
Looks like some birds have started building nests in this multiple dwelling. I can see some hay sticking out of a couple of the holes.
Walked 6 miles.
✿ ✿ ✿ ✿We recycled a piece of the deck railing when we moved here and got rid of the deck out back. I put it out in the yard and made a bird feeding area and it has been there for a couple of years now. There are two feeders but I also set seeds out on top of the railing. The seed was gone in no time with the squirrels and chipmunks and now deer. The crows would come and scare the other birds away too.
Ken got some 1/4 inch wire mesh and nailed it down leaving a little space between the mesh and the board and bent up the sides. The birds can get at the seed easily but it takes a little work for the chipmunks and squirrels. The crows don't like the mesh and haven't been around much. This has worked out great and there has been all kinds of birds here now. It is like one long feeder.
Walked around the yard on this cloudy day. The rhubarb plants have started poking up through the ground as well as the daffodils. I also noticed a lot of weeds making their appearance already.
Got some more reading done too and also listened to an audio book while I counted out tracts and put them in groups of 25 with a rubber band for church. Next month is tract month and we will be handing them out. People hand them out throughout the year too but everyone gets involved during tract month.
It's been a good day.
A happy day to you.
