Not often we have a foggy sunrise but we had one this morning.  Couldn't see much of it through our pine trees but no matter, just knowing it was out there was enough.
Although we are into April now I still start my days dressed for winter wearing lined pants, T-shirt under a long sleeve flannel shirt along with a winter jacket.  Glad to be into my summer runners though and looking forward to short sleeve shirts and blue jeans again soon.  
Clear overnight skies left an early touch of April frost on the land and it was these cold glistening ice crystals which caught my eye on our Jeep ride.  A beautiful sunny morning to be outside for a drive through rural Southwestern Ontario along with a Huron County country lane walk listening to April's early songbirds.
Home again and energized by this morning's outing I spent a constructively pleasant afternoon puttering around the yard raking leaves, and trimming shubs along with half a dozen other little things.  So nice to be outside shaking off winter's blahs thinking of new late Spring yard projects.
Due to Covid-19 our areas beaches and Parks have now been closed.  Cottagers are prohibited from coming to their cottages.  Mobile home Parks are allowing permanent residences to stay but seasonal home owners must remain at the their main homes and not attend their summer mobile home Parks.    Non essential construction has also been stopped.  Lots of other changes going on as well which I'm sure most people are familiar with.  Kelly and I are doing fine here by staying out of everybody's way:))
GROANER'S CORNER:((  A little boy was overheard talking to himself as he strutted through the backyard, wearing his baseball cap and toting a ball and bat.  "I'm the greatest hitter in the world," he announced. Then, he tossed the ball into the air, swung at it, and missed. "Strike One!" he yelled.  Undaunted, he picked up the ball and said again, "I'm the greatest hitter in the world!" He tossed the ball into the air. When it came down, he swung again and missed. "Strike two!" he cried. The boy then paused a moment to examine his bat and ball carefully. He spit on his hands and rubbed them together. He straightened his cap and said once more, "I'm the greatest hitter in the world!" Again, he tossed the ball up in the air and swung at it. He missed. "Strike three!"  "Wow!" he exclaimed. "I am the greatest pitcher in the world!"


  1. A beautiful morning for a ride with the windows open and the heat and radio on. I enjoy seeing the fog and frost from here. And I'm sorry, not trying to rub it in.

  2. Always nice to see what our local area looks like while we're still snoozing. :-))

  3. Didn't know what that last photo was for a second. Very pretty fog and then the ice crystals on everything. Spring is in the air that's for sure.
