pretty excited…

i have the whole weekend off!  what to do…what to do…

enh…prolly  this…

getting in touch with my inner lenny pepperbottom…birdwatching!

yesterday was absolutely gorgeous here in western mn, so hubbkf and i took the intrepid luci and went for a walk here.  we took one of the dnr service roads where we knew there would be lots of geese…some are local and some are snows and blues.   there are also some canadians making a pitstop and are prolly on their way home to free healthcare, hockey and poutine which are three things i know fer sure about canada…

an eagle, not a goose...

first we saw an eagle…pretty sure it’s a baldy, but could be a golden…who knows?  he wouldn’t let us get close enough to find out…hey, i respect his distance!

i live under the watertower...

my house is a little to the left of the watertower…you can see some of the trees in our yard…how neat is that? 

nice formation...

we could hear their wings flapping as they passed over us…here’s a beaut:

yeah...that's a lot of goose...

kinda gave me the shivers when they all got up…

 this was the last bird we saw on our way out…we walked about 3 miles…luci got extremely warm and kept rolling around in the snow, which i wish we would have gotten a picture of cuz it was adorbs…

this is just flat-out badass...

so, yeah…this is where i live and i wouldn’t change that for anything…i actually got a little teary eyed what with the perfection of the day…warm sunshine, lots of nature, holding hands with hubbkf…what more could a girl ask for?
