Another weekend zooming by. It was chilly and breezy, so no real long rides this weekend. I did manage to get in about 30 miles total over the 2 days, so not bad. This was the wind blowing the flag:
I ended up with chapped lips from the wind today! I also was out in the very cold this morning. I met my mom for breakfast and decided to bike, even though it was in the upper 30s, just because I knew it would warm up some while we were eating.
Yay for time with mom!
John was away this weekend and I spent a lot of time outdoors. We had all that fencing to remove and we decided to just go ahead and list it for free on Craig’s list with pictures and description describing the condition.
We finally got a couple people that came, one earlier this week and one came today and took almost all the rest. Now we only have this little bit to dispose of.
Yay! So glad we don’t have to get a dumpster. I don’t think whatever fences they make will last long, but whatever. The funny thing? On a side note – The gentleman that came by today said he used to work for the man that owned our house. He did not have kind things to say – just like everyone else that talks about him. That guy sure is a piece of work. He also just got out of jail for skipping out on his child support payments. Deadbeat. He did not deserve Radiance Manor.
Anyway, I like to bring my camera out when I am working in the back to get pictures of the birdies. The cardinal:
And a bonus house finch at the feeder.
Spring also heralds the return of the white-throated sparrow, which as a very distinctive song. You can listen to that here.
I finally got a shot of one with some patience staying really still.
I love the birdies!
I thought I would share some pictures in the future of the Chapman museum where I started doing my volunteering. Here is something that was donated – an old switchboard used in Glens Falls:
Could you imagine being an operator and having to work this to connect callers?? Crazy.
