Watery Wednesday

This weekend my nephews,
Kai and Aksel, came to stay a few nights at the farm.


Yesterday Kai and I went for a canoe ride.
First we headed over to the beaver's den, the pile of sticks behind Kai would be it!


Then Kai couldn't wait to get over to the island, where the day before we saw some deer.
And we made a little discovery, the deer had been eating the branches off a bush!

When it was time to head back to the boat, Kai thought it would be funny to leave Auntie Bet on the island.


But he let me on the boat, he's too sweet.

Sky Watch

"Mackerel in the sky, three days dry"
"Mackerel sky, mackerel sky. Never long wet, never long dry"
"Mare's tails and Mackerel scales, make tall ships carry low sails"
Altocumulus.
The phrase 'mackerel sky' came from the fact that it looks like
the markings of an adult king mackerel.
Altocumulus clouds form when there is moisture present at middle levels,
and when temperatures rang from colder than freezing to a little warmer than freezing.
If the altocumulus are growing in area and thickness with time, and are
approaching from the wind direction at the cloud's level, then a change toward moister weather is indicated.

Watery Wednesday

After a year of waiting, my ducks have a house!

Now they don't have to live with the turkeys,
or take up space in the barn.
February is lambing season and we need all the room we can get!
