It will be interesting to make observations of life in Minnesota. While I have visited many times over the years, the last WINTER I lived here was '85/'86. The locals say that it has been a tough year so far, with lots of snow and COLD.
I have found that my winter driving skills are much like the proverbial 'riding a bike' -- you just don't forget.
You would think that caring for elderly parents in their home would be mainly a lot of sitting around. HA! I have been busy cooking / cleaning / chauffeuring / shopping. But there is some entertainment right outside the front window.
Mom likes to feed the birds, but the other day the bird feeder was a squirrel feeder! These shots were taken through the window as the snow fell...
|Hey! Kick some out for ME!|
|Did you find it?|
|Oh, hello there!|
|We didn't see the bunnies visit, but they left plenty of evidence.|
Prairie wildlife is very different from the seals, orcas, and eagles we have been used to for the past 5 years.
