Sunny Day

Saturday in Hawrelak

Passed by two magpies standing around what appeared to be a recently discarded styrofoam container of fries and a hamburger. One magpie looked up at me as if to say, “Ohmygodohmygodohmygod!” I throw a handful of ¬†peanuts into my bird feeder every morning for the magpies (and blue jays), but I can certainly understand how fries and a hamburger would make your average magpie ecstatic. Hope they enjoyed it.

Walked through Laurier and Hawrelak Park this afternoon. The geese have definitely moved on, but there are¬†still lots of chickadees, nuthatches and squirrels. Also, people. Mostly amblers, like myself, and a few hardcore bikers. It’s a beautiful day, and the perfect temperature for walking. Anything colder and I’d have to wear a hat, and a few degrees warmer and I’d be sweating.

Total time outside, just over two and a half hours. Some of that involved a bit of errand running, but the majority was just pleasant winter walking under a bright blue sky.
