She bought a little video camera, but the weather has not been very co-operative. In spite of the fact that it was quite warm yesterday, we were under a wind warning for most of the day, so the only sound you could hear on her rather pathetic videos was the whooshing of the (gale-force!) wind. Oh, except for the one she took of the ground, when she thought she had turned the camera off. In that one, you could hear her counting calves!! ("One, two, three, ummm... one, two, three....") The wind was blowing so hard, it ripped her flag right off the pole - she figures it's in Saskatchewan by now! Geosomin, keep an eye out!
If the wind dies down, she will try to video something again. But then she will have to try to figure out how to save the videos in her computer. She finally got them to play, but couldn't figure out how to keep them.
Not that they were worth keeping!
This robin's nest is in the lean-to where she keeps her firewood and stores outdoor things. It is built on top of a wooden game she had stored there.
And she was in the house, standing beside an open window, when she heard a familiar buzzing sound! She quickly glanced outside and caught a glimpse of a hummingbird! Of course, she didn't have her feeders ready, so she had to do that right away.
She did get some work done on the railings on her deck. They were quite badly weathered, so she has been sanding them, in between everything else. She had a good start on that when the Cowboy came along and asked her to help with some fencing.
Not sure why the Bag Lady took this photo, except perhaps to share the excitement of fencing with you!
After they finished with that, she started cleaning her old motor home. This is a long weekend, and the forecast is for hot weather, so she and the Cowboy might just do something wild and crazy, like drive the 5 miles over to their cattle lease and camp overnight so they can do some more fencing! Doesn't that sound exciting?!
If there are more calves born this weekend, she will post pictures, maybe even videos with sound!
Oh, and one last thing - speaking of flowers, the Bag Lady was out in the pasture, checking calves, when she happened to spot this little wildflower. It's pretty tiny, so you might want to click on the photo to enlarge it to see it better.
Here is a rather pathetic little video clip of Mohawk Mama! (And yes, you get to listen to the damned wind blowing!)
Have a great weekend!
