Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Too Hot to Move!

Today is the 5th day that the temperature has been at or above 30C (86F). Too hot for us northerners! The province is on a total fire ban with about 120 fires currently burning. Fortunately, the closest to us is about 30 km away.
Yesterday I sat on the deck in the shade  and enjoyed the sunshine.
I watched this Spruce Beetle for a while. They don't bite, but if they think you are a spruce tree, they will and it hurts. They take a big chunk out.

I  think this is a juvenile Pine Grosbeak. If so, they must have laid eggs early. He is pretty scrawny and not street smart yet.
 Curious little guy!

OK, everybody out there think "Rain" unless you are in Texas etc.

Hi! I came by to return the blog visit and thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on mine. I've been scrolling through some of your posts and have to say that your photography is absolutely fantastic. May I ask what kind of camera you have? I'd love to be able to take pictures like that.
