Friday was a totally miserable day. It was a mixture of freezing and non-freezing rain. Not fun to walk in at all, dangerous, to boot! Sorry Zeke, no walk for us at this time! That said, there may be potential for great photos, icy branches and all, we’ll just have to wait and see! By the time I decided to take the time to write this, I can confirm that nay, nary a frozen branch in site…
Soooo, I figured I’d share with you some of the shots I took on Monday and Tuesday’s walks. Monday was a ped(agogical) day for the boys so everything kind of slows down and schedules go out the door – no alarm clock and all (yay!). I almost didn’t make it out there but then decided it would do me some good, get me out of the blahs…
Plus! I had my new toy to play with:
… and a Zeke-meister waiting for me to get dressed!
So, where to go to try out this new camera? (By the way, I’m still at the point that I’m choosing automatic settings. Will be playing with manual settings when I get a tad more familiar with my camera.) We decided on the field in the industrial area as it was quite late in the day – almost 4:00 pm and the light would soon be nil and frankly, I didn’t feel like the Teletubbie Park plus the River park was just too far. Off we went. As usual, there were sticks to be found and tossed and I attempted to catch this silly dog’s movements! He hops up and down until he finally gets to the stick; then he pounces on it as if it were something live that could get away! Sometimes he pounces so hard, he pushes the stick so far in he can’t find it! Kills me every time!
Along our way, we hit the same cattails and various other flora…
Zeke is usually good at keeping himself occupied whilst I amuse myself! Wonder what he was looking for?
I turned up and saw my lovely beast looking so regal and gorgeous. Couldn’t decide on one of the pics, so you get both!
As we made our way back, I finally got Zeke to run towards me (too bad the sun was pretty much gone at this point! Look at his absolutely silly face!
The next day was grey and beyond blah. I just couldn’t drag myself outside no matter how much Zeke begged… Then, after lunchtime, the snowflakes came!
So, as per usual, he waits…
This time we do go to our Teletubbie park! I found myself singing Christmas songs for heaven’s sakes! Well, can you blame me? With these big fluffy snowflakes falling like they were?
I then attempted a second time to catch Zekie-Poo running…. definitely going to have to examine what this camera can do!!!
And finally, I just sat down in the snow and let him meander about. Next thing I know, I’m singing to myself….
I’m the king of the castle…. and you’re the dirty rascal!
