As I mentioned yesterday are on vacation in Florida! Part of our journey took us through central Florida where lots of oranges grow. We were so impressed by the quantity of oranges in this truck until we drove by an orange distribution center with lots and lots of rows and columns of bins as big and as full as this truck!

The snow appears here to stay (at least during this frigid cold spell)! It is too cold to play in and it is not melting so there are large areas in our yard undisturbed by us. Which I think is why we are finding great animal tracks. I like the bunny tracks best! We don’t see the bunnies much in the winter but I guess they “get out” once in a while! We’re also seeing some squirrel tracks and lots of bird tracks. It is fun to try and identify them and also follow them. Continue reading
Welcome to yet another installment of animals eating!
I have two thoughts… Graceful birds, turkeys are NOT and those leaves must be really worth it!

Wind sure can be powerful! Many on the east coast witnessed this in the extreme this week with Hurricane Sandy. We didn’t even lose power but I know many weren’t so lucky. It got me thinking about wind and harnessing that power. We don’t live near any operating windmills but I was wondering if they were generating crazy amounts of power Monday! Personally I am all for windmills. They had me at generating-renewable-energy-without-producing-greenhouse-gases! Continue reading
The wind might be in a big hurry outside but we have slowed things down quite a bit inside with lots of storm watching, home cooked meals, and cozy time!
Amazingly we still have power after a full day of that! For me, hurricanes are mostly exciting and sometimes a little scary. When I was outside taking this video I heard a loud crack and saw a large limb break off a neighbor’s tree. All these tree are still standing but probably won’t have any leaves left by this time tomorrow!
