We had another week of the craziest weather......about 5 inches of snow on Monday
Cold Tues & Weds
Thursday the temps warmed up to around 50 degs with storms around.
A storm hit around 3:30pm with the worst winds.....scary! It sounded like it was raining branches on our roof. Lot of damage with trees uprooted & down on houses....right on the next street. We lost power for several hours & are still doing clean up from the branches
The birds were so hungry......I have been trying forever to get some shots of these little guys
They usually grab some seed & fly away but for once they sat & posed for me
I have had an amazing number of finches this year
They always come in bunches & squabble over the perches
I don't know if they're fighting or feeding each other
I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic. Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play. I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way. One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car". I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.
I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.
About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty! My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly. As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.
Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming
They are still working on my house
I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house "Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
