Rain, Rain, Rain

Wow, what a wet weekend we had here in Michigan! It rained pretty much non-stop from Saturday morning until Sunday night. I was really hoping to get the pups out for a walk or to the park but it was way too soggy! I am starting to see a few subtle signs of Spring though it is still almost 2 weeks away. This morning when I looked out the window I saw these guys!

Usually the first sign of Spring's return is the Robin but I haven't seen any of those yet. I did see this guy though. I put up this suet feeder a couple weeks ago and Woodpeckers seem to be the best customer.

These beautiful little Goldfinches never leave Michigan for the winter. Soon they will be breaking out their prettiest yellow feathers instead of this dull brown.

One exciting thing we did do this weekend was make our contribution to stimulate the economy thanks to a little tax refund. Here's what we started out with...

and here's what we ended up with! It's quite a difference and even though we were concerned at first that the TV might be too big for the room, it has worked out fine.

We didn't get a chance to watch it last night as some friends invited us over to play Euchre for the evening. We brought a dish to pass and had a nice time since there was no money or name calling involved!

Tomorrow it's back to work again. The weatherman is predicting cooler temps and even some snow at the end of the week, though not too much.

Have a great week!
