Log Cabin Updates

I was so happy I got to spend a few days at the cabin last week. It was nice to take a break from studying! The weather was okay but got rainy toward the end of the week.

We went on some nice hikes and also got to meet my blogger friend Joan of The Retirement Chronicles. (Go visit her blog to view some fantastic photography. I told Joan she's lucky our log cabins aren't close by each other cuz I would be bugging her everyday!)

The snow has started to melt. Our lake is still frozen but melting on the edges.

Here's Joan and I! Isn't she a cute lady? I look like a big monster next to her. (Note to self - start jogging more and drink less pepsi!)

Here's my little chickadee making new friends with my bird feeder. I had them eating out of my hands all week but of course Greg was never able to capture the moment on camera. I really need the paparazzi to start following me!

I took lots of photos at the cabin while we were there so I will be posting these in the next day or so. I feel like spring is here! Time to get new spring pj's so I can wave to my neighbors and impress them! Ha!

The chickadees are so cute!

I'm off to see her blog, now!

I know you will be happy to see the snow gone. We are getting the cute chickadees to. I put up a house for some wrens that stayed around all winter just hope they will live in it.

look like a monster?? LOL I literally laughed out loud! Then thought "Oh you do not".

Love the feeder with the little birdies, cute!

Sandi Keene said...

Adorable you, adorable feeder. So nice to hear from you!

Daisy said...

I'm glad you got to spend some time at the cabin. I bet it was fun to meet a fellow blogger. Love the bird photo. So cute! :)

Busy Bee Suz said...

You and Joan are both adorable.

I can't believe you can't get a photo of you and the birds. What is Scout doing? Surely she can work a camera by now, right?

George said...

I'm glad you were able to enjoy the cabin for awhile. I hope Greg can get a picture of the chickadee feeding from your hand next time. We're enjoying our second day of sunshine -- it's wonderful

Chickadees are so cute. Looks like they are wearing little caps. :) What a thrill to have them eating out of your hand! I do good having the birds let me sit on the porch while they eat.

Your friend Joan has some beautiful photos on her blog. She has a photo of you and Greg on there with her and her husband. It looks like you had fun. I love the little chickadee photo too. Btw, I think you look wonderful!

grammy said...

Love the bird feeder and the birdie

Jane In The Jungle said...

Absolutely LOVE the bird feeder!!!!

violetlady said...

It has been ages since I have dropped by. I love that bird feeder - the photos are great. I don't know if we have chickadees in Delaware -- sparrows and finches, though.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I stopped by today to see some more outstanding photography, and I leave satisfied. Beautiful photos...including you and your fortunate blogging friend. My mom would love that bird feeder. Can't wait till you post more pictures.

OK, the wierdest thing happened this morning. We heard a bird we have never, ever heard before. And I swear to you SHelley, it said "chick, chick, chick a dee".
I wonder if we have them out here or if someone was just lost . . . :)
I thought of you first thing!!!! :)
Hugs! Karen
