What A Difference A Week Can Make

 

If you want to know why I’m suffering from cabin fever, just take a look at this lake!
This is what the lake looked like 10 days ago! I actually thought Spring was on its way. Ha!
You would think after living on or near Lake Superior for over 23 years,  I’d know better by now.

I suppose I was being a little overly optimistic…
Yesterday morning, while I was still sleeping, my husband heard this beautiful woodpecker making an awful racket and got a few decent photos of him.
 
I hope you can make him out behind all of those branches, he blends so well.
 I would give you his official name, but I’m afraid that I’ve already packed my bird books to take Up North to the lodge.
Yes, we leave this weekend!
 I just can’t believe how the time has snuck up on me!
 But it is all good.
I’ve got a lot of catching up to do, so have the teapot on. I’m on my way over now…
Kimberly

  1. Hard to believe people are still having that amount of snow. We never had a “real” snow this year, but we had snow showers without accumulation all day yesterday and more on the forecast for today. I liked seeing your woodpecker. We have a red headed woodpecker in our backyard. Fun to watch them since they are so easy to spot. Have a fun trip this weekend!

  2. March is going out like a lion! It should turn around soon. I believe that's a hairy woodpecker in the tree. Sometimes I stand and listen to the woodpeckers in the woods next to us- it can be really interesting to hear. We have the pileated woodpecker visit too and you'd swear they're going to cut the tree down!

  10. This may call for an eyeroll from you and I wouldn't blame you, but it's always been one of my dreams to see a large body of water completely frozen over. It just doesn't happen here in East TN!!

  12. What fabulous before & after pics of the Lake. It is certainly spring here in So Ca. My daughter spent an hour sunbathing and reading a magazine today and I could not resist joining her for some fresh air. Swaying palms and blue skies! WHat a TREAT to see the woodpecker. Happy Easter 🙂

  13. I replied above before reading any of the other comments. I don't allow anonymous comments on my blog and with good reason. For the last week or so, some idiot keeps trying to leave a comment that makes no sense. I know its spam, so I delete and block it, but they keep coming back. All in response to the same post.
