Our son sent us some photos of our grandsons at Easter time at their home. I like this one that is not posed. This one shows the tense concentration shown when the baskets are first discovered. We talked to them via FaceTime last evening. They are certainly growing up fast. The youngest one has learned how the system works and looks right into the screen to say words to us.
I had a furnace man show up to check over the heat and cooling systems to see if everything is ready to go. The young man did a great job and informed me of all that he needed to do. He even took a garden hose out to the air conditioner unit to give it a fresh clean start. I cleaned floors and carpets while he was there to keep the work going on up there. I wasn’t going to stand around and watch him. He was there almost two hours so I got a lot of cleaning done at the old place.
We rarely saw mourning doves at our old place. They were all the Eurasian Ring Neck types and their size I think kept the mourning doves away. We have the two here at the new place and I am assuming that they are a pair. This photo shows how long the tail is better than most of my photos I have shared of them.
It is so nice to have this guy around. I hope he stays. I can’t believe they would be nesting but I think that they are in the blue spruce tree. The female cardinal rarely comes onto the deck but this guy can intrude on the deck any time he wants.
I had a busy early morning with my furnace guy but that did screw up my routine. Maybe by this afternoon I can get back into my groove. Being out so early in the morning I saw pelicans on the lake. They were scattered all over the area where the boats are docked in summer. They seemed to each have their own fishing area. I am still wondering if they plan to stay all summer. The recreational boats won’t be such good company for them.
Thanks for stopping by today. I appreciate your visits.
