Another one of my photos from my visit to Disney last April. This one is one of my favourites from that trip. Why? Just look at that bird! haha

Again, as I mentioned in previous entries, there were very many birds around Disney that day that didn’t seem to mind people being close to them, which made for good photo opportunities. This one was a pretty big one too, though not the biggest we saw that day. No, that title goes to this one –

I didn’t catch it when it had it’s wings out like I wanted, but this one came out good enough. Such a pretty bird! This one was out to get everyone’s churros, somewhat aggressively so. I kept a good distance from it because of that, haha.

More to come later!

Travel Plans

It’s slow season at work, so I took Friday off and had a nice three day weekend, the first one in a long time. No OT for a while, so that means I have more time to study for my testing and have some much needed me time. As much as I like OT pay, it’s nice to be able to relax a little more.

On the subject of my title, Katie and I have decided to go down to Florida on her Spring break, mainly to see my mother and our friend. I’m not fond of Florida at all, but that’s where most of my family is, so I’m doing my daughterly/grandaughterly duty. It’s close to my mother’s birthday too, so she wants to take us and our friend up to Disney like she did last year.

The above picture is actually from last year, but I haven’t gotten around to posting all of those pictures yet (soon! I promise!). As I mentioned in a previous entry, there were a lot of photogenic birds that day! This one was another one of them. He was perched on Mickey’s nose, just watching everyone watching and taking pictures of him. I took three pictures of him before I went on my way to Tomorrowland. I would have tried to take more, but Disney is a busy place in the middle of the day, so I didn’t want to be in the way. I’ll post the other two shots of him later.

I’m off to bed now, so good night!

Snow and Ice

2014-01-05 020sm

As expected, we woke up to tons of snow. At least 5 inches to start with and it didn’t quit snowing until the evening. As much as I wanted to go out and take a lot of pictures, my body can’t handle the cold weather like it used to be able to. I stayed inside all day, only cracking the door now and then to snap a picture and quickly closing it after I was done.

It’s too dark for me to check the yard stick that we put outside, but I believe we got well over 10 inches of snow total. This mess of snow is just what’s outside our front door on the 3rd floor of our building.

And these lovelies are hanging from the top. It would be a bad time for anyone who happens to be under those if they break.

It honestly feels like we’re encased in ice and snow. Here’s hoping it melts soon and doesn’t start up again, though, I think there’s more on the way..
