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

Freeze Out!

The last few days have been a bust for taking photos! At -39C or -50C with the windchill it has not been possible to get out and about. Hands freeze (literally) in about 2 minutes at those temperatures. Believe me, you do not want to hold a camera with the gloves off!

Even the birds have been hold up somewhere. Today, a few Chickadees showed up at the feeder. I got a couple of shots through the window.

 This Pine Grosbeak caught my attention. I haven't seen one in weeks. He made a big dent in my sunflower seeds! The sun hit him just right.
I saw somewhere that there are only 5 more Mondays until spring. One more week of deep freeze and then bring it on!


  1. Hard to believe 5 more Monday’s until spring. Your pics through the window turned out well.

  2. I Like the photos far from cold here today

  3. Brrrrrrrrr!!!!! I always forget it gets SO much colder elsewhere. I won't complain about -25 windchill... ha ha, yes I will! Great shots. Beautiful grosbeak.
