A lesson about ducks

I noticed something odd in my Maple tree after my dog walk early this morning.
Look a little closer
It's a DUCK!
In all my years, I have never seen a duck in a tree!
My hunting friend informed me it was a Wood Duck.
After a little research , I discovered this to be true.
I love living in the country! I'm always learning :)

Healing nicely

Last Thursday, Country Boy had another appointment at the fracture clinic.
The Doctor told us on the previous visit that if the next x-ray showed good improvement, he would change Country Boy's cast. Here is the latest x-ray...
The Doctor was pleased, and so Country Boy got a new cast.
This one is shorter, lighter, and removable!
He has needed my help washing his hair and a some other simple tasks for the past 3 weeks, but now Country Boy can shower again! He's getting his independence back.
May 1st we have another appointment, and with any luck he well be able to remove it.

NOT funny Mother Nature!

We have been enjoying warmer temperatures the past week or so.
I have been out working in the yard, raking, edging.
I was putting out all the garden ornaments in my t-shirt just a few days ago.
Today - April 25th - Mother Nature reminded us who is in charge.

Boomer wasn't too happy about the snow either!
Clearly there would be no yard work done today, so I did what I always do when the weather doesn't co-operate ...

I baked!
No wonder I always gain so much weight in the winter!
