The weather has been terrific. Wee One and I have been taking advantage of it every day. It is not helping me get over my sickness any faster but I can’t stay indoors on these gorgeous days we are having in Oklahoma…I just cant do it.
Yesterday we went for a walk.
Swimming anyone? no thanks!
This isnt the kind of water I’m used to (I think this is a branch of Bird creek). When I took this picture from the bridge there was a turtle or something poking it’s head out of the water to the lower right. I am assuming it was a turtle because it had a good sized head, maybe it was a fish? I did not get a good look. Last winter I used to see the same Bald Eagle fishing this creek, a little bit further in. I have not seen it this year.
The creeks in Oklahoma are not clean or safe. Safe meaning, SNAKES. Maybe not just yet, in a couple of weeks they’ll be out.
Growing up in Northern Michigan has spoiled me. I am used to the Great Lakes and fresh roaring rivers and twinkling clear streams. Oklahoma does not come close……altho I do have a fresh spring that runs at the back of my horse pasture that stays clear.
The Old Guy checking out some bike riders. I have upped his arthritis supplements this week, he has been awful sore. I have not ridden him much at all to make him sore. If he does not feel better in a week I’ll call the vet and see what she says. I still have a few tubes of Bute paste but I do not like to use it for a couple of different reasons.
Wee One and I were out in the yard, Scooter was mad because he could not have my undivided attention. Notice he has 2 burs stuck in his forelock. I suppose that is my punishment for not hanging out with him all day long. Before Wee One was born, he and I hung out all day long every day, especially when I was preggers. I guess he feels ‘neglected’.
I hope our great weather holds for a few more days. Unfortunately we’ll probably have to pay the price for it in the form of some severe thunderstorms…….
