I had been sick all week--from Monday night till last night. Leah was home sick-ish, too, and Ian threw up. No craft night last week. Dagan had to cancel his heart-pacemaker appointment in Minneapolis because of sickness and winter storms. We had two of them in two days. This was the first one. You can see the critters were digging for seed.
...so these guys were not lifting their feet as they shuffled along over the ice.
Since the snow was light and fluffy...
...the storm and wind the following day created beautiful, sparkly drifts on my patio!
You may notice it was so cold and windy even the critters hadn't been by yet.
I do love snow drifts...well, and sand drifting, too.
But it didn't remain pristine for long--LOL! By the next morning you could tell we'd had a lot of visitors.
It was too cold to shovel again. Miss Karma was remembering the porch at the old aprtment, I think. She cried at the door until...
...I got her some snow to eat.
Some of you may remember how Karma loved to go out on the snowy porch for just a minute, race back in, turn around and eat her white footprints on the rug--LOL!
...now have competition!
One jackrabbit in particular hangs about someplace during the day and likes to scare away The Girls when they come to eat.
Quite a snoopy character.
Not very afraid of me and less so of Miss Karma, to her chagrin.
I took a video the second day Miss Karma had noticed (been awake) to see the jackrabbits.
The first night she saw them I took lots of pictures...
...but didn't think of a video.
She sat and cried like she wanted me to give her one of them--LOL!
She kept trying to lunge at them...
...but even with her face glued to the window they came right back, sat and ate inches from her nose.
They were more interested in keeping an eye on each other.
They chased each other all over the place.
Karma couldn't believe her eyes.
Talk about nature shows...
...on her CatTV.
They learned to ignore her lunging, pawing at the glass, and crying...
...in about 15-20 minutes.
So Karma has mostly watched them from a comfortable prone position since then.
I was hoping to get video of the rabbit games, but that didn't happen. Just like when you're trying to get a child to do something for other people and they give you that blank what-on-earth-are-you-talking-about look--LOL!
But since I had the cell phone out...
I decided to start the 52 stories I plan to do this year since I remembered the first question about how did you get your name? So I have episode one...while you watch jackrabbits.
And before I forget...those of you who haven't had comments from me for a while...for some reason I am unable to comment on over half my blogspot bloggers, none of the wordpress bloggers, and over half of the youtube videos I can't comment on, either. Blogger had already quit sending me notification emails for some of my commenters and now I haven't been getting emails telling me when people comment on my blog on facebook, either. I don't know what is going on with google. I can read everything, of course...and I do. But at this rate pretty soon this is going to turn into a one-way conversation. :( So I am especially grateful to those of you who email me and/or write letters!! :)
Oh, and don't worry about The Girls. They still manage to make it over to gobble seed a few times a day. Rabbits apparently don't make the best sentrys--LOL!
Hope you enjoy the videos!
You should hear from me at least once a week this year with a new story (or old to some of you who have known me for years--LOL!).
We're supposed to make it into the low teens for a few days now starting tomorrow. Man! It's just stayed cold-cold-cold. Stay safe--warm or cool, as the case may be. Till next time. :) :)
