I Keep watching!

I keep looking out that kitchen window, but don't see that moose! However, but by the looks of the tracks out there our friend keeps wandering around out there! I so want a good picture of it in our back-yard!
Life is pretty un-exciting here, nice, quiet and peaceful. Ron has been feeling 'off' the past few days, so don't know what is happening there. He has no energy and a lot of nausea. Wonder if that could have anything to do with the herina he's recently developed? We are waiting for word of an appointment for him with an internist. Hope it is something that will just go away on it's own!

Back Yard Moose!

We knew we had a moose out in the back, but all we ever saw was tracks ... until today! I happen to glance out the kitchen window and there it was! By the time I grabbed my camera, ran outside in my slippers and tried to zoom, these are the only pictures I came up with!!! I was just so excited!!! Must be what they call "Buck Fever" LOL
The picture of the fence shows where the moose comes along the neighbours fence line.

Walking Village Streets

Ron finally came home from the coast and his visit to the heart clinic at St Paul's Hospital. They must have said something right because he is determined that we will start getting some exercise and do some walking.

Yesterday was actually our first day of 'exercise' and we did a couple of walks, one trip around Byron Circle with the dogs and then a bit later down to the post office. The weather has just been lovely, a little below freezing, so crisp but not frigid. The snow here is deep, well I think it's deep, probably about 2 feet in the bush. The trees all seem to hold onto the snow through most of the winter, and with the beauty of that, the peace and quiet of our little village, it makes for a very pleasant walk.

Today we took a longer route to the PO, I guess we'll have to invest in a pedometer to see just how far we do walk. Another way would be to drive our walking routes and measure it that way. At least this is not New West! There would be very little walking there I think! LOL
