A lovely day for sunshine, cats outdoors, deer burrs, trailcam

What a beautiful day it was, Tuesday, January 20th! I did a workout, fetched trailcam photos, fed the birds, and vacuumed.

I managed a snowshoe hare photo on the trail cam.

By Wed., Jan. 21st, it was only 13 C. in the family room downstairs, as it was -24 C. outside. Daisy and I built a fire. She had a nap in her cat bed. Buster and Dorah are upstairs watching the birds in the dawn. The room is now up to a more comfortable temperature! I'm blogging and processing my photos and videos. It's a good life!

I moved the trailcam, and capured the coyote, again at dinner time, and a dancing deer! Check out the change in temperature from Tuesday, the 20th, to the 23rd. I put down some cedar boughs, as Justin suggested, and they were gone within the hour (3:00 p.m)


I took off to my hair appointment. Buster and Daisy were guarding the front porch. (Those dratted red squirrels. ) The sunshine was lovely. We're on the upturn, with the sunshine warming up the car.

Out in the yard, I could tell that the deer were into the burrs! They got them off quickly after breakfast, although it'd be nice to give them a good brush! Our wee Annabelle doesn't seem to like brushing much. I'm working on this. A little each day.

We dodged a bullet Tuesday night, as there was a big power outage in our area. Thankfully, hubby's tennis was still on, since we didn't lost our power. We had TV, water pressure and our propane heat!
There was a car incident, with a hydro pole taken out. Thank goodness for local news radio. We'd never hear what was going on!



We’re still waiting for details about the accident that left more than 8,000 Hydro One customers without power last night.

Posted Wed.: More than 8,700 residences in Lanark County lost power for several hours last night due to a car crash in Lanark Highlands Township just before 6 p.m. Hydro One said power had been restored to all homes, including the last 407, at 4:30 a.m. this morning. Many residents had power back shortly after 6 p.m., except for those in Lavant, Dalhousie and Darling wards in Lanark Highlands.

Jen, I love all the cute critters. The Hare is pretty. And I love the deer! Your kitties are adorable.. I am glad your power stayed on, in the winter it is awful to go without electric.. Great photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post.. Have a happy weekend!

those deer photos make me want to rush out and brush them down, even though they have their own methods of getting rid of them

At this time of year it's hard to deal with power outages. At least this one was a few hours.

Dancing deer, you have that trail cam set just right, hope everyone has alternative heating, power outages, not good for TV watching, I'm so glad the tennis was still able to be viewed, is this the Australian Open? Will email with the excel data today, yesterday was a bad day all day for Hugh? No reason why, it just happens. Hugs,Jean.

How do your cats survive with all the critters around? Are they good about minding and coming in before dark? Mine never did. - Margy

Wonderful critters all of them. Your cats are enjoying the sun. Have a great weekend.

Love the critters, but I'm still musing on the temperature of your computer room that one morning! You are amazing ... I'd have just wanted to crawl back under the covers!

Jennifer, brrrr, and I thought it was cold here. You got me beat bigtime.

You sure have a lot more snow than we do in Innisfil. The grandson moved down from North Bay and doesn't think he needs a coat or boots here. LOL
Cute dancing deer, wonder if it heard your trail cam. We used one to capture the beavers in the pond at our arboretum although every dog in the area usually had a look right in the camera.

You've got a lot of action on your web cam.

The girls come in at dusk, we work hard at getting them in. This is when hubby manages to close the basement door.
Buster is nocturnal in summer. He is happier outside than in, and harasses Sady if he's in all night!
