disappeared although the other day we had two of them feeding on the seeds the little birds spill onto the ground from the feeder. We were getting more than a dozen so I’m assuming the coyotes are eating well.

The birds have gone through about 60 pounds of seed! I think much of it was spilled onto the lawn and the gravel covered garden so I will put the leaf blower in suck mode and try to vaccuum up the mess once the snow goes.

Happily, we still get to see our granddaughter Isla regularly. Her parents do almost all the work with her but I do work with her on reading, writing and arithmetic when she is over. She has improved a lot over the past couple of months. She will be ready for Grade 1 when she starts in September.

Kudos to all the very smart people out there who worked so hard to make this happen. Thank you all!

We had a long stretch of bitterly cold weather with air temperatures at -41C and windchills at -55C. We just hibernate when it is that cold!

 Today it was +13C so people are out in just a light jacket or a sweater. The lakes are still frozen and the geese that returned early are walking around on the ice waiting for them to thaw.

The little birds that we have been feeding all winter are starting spring mating rituals and are flying around and cheeping like mad. Our flock of ptarmigans has largely
