give me a ride, mommy!, originally uploaded by Lizzie~Belle.

So of course I went back down to the park at lunch, and took a bunch more pictures. Also, I took movies. Watch how these cute little critters follow their mummy around, and one hitches a ride! :D

gaggle, originally uploaded by Lizzie~Belle.

I did something silly this morning. I went to work. Turns out, the town where I work still has no power (it went out about quarter to five yesterday). My boss sent out a text, but she didn't have my cell number. Well, she does now!

So I went down to Heritage Park and took pix of the goslings. They looked so cute in the morning sunshine.

My boss eventually called, and there was no sign we'd have power soon, so I went home. I got a text later that said they're trucking in a generator, but it'd be a few hours yet, so I went for a walk down to Stanley Park.

A nice day )



My boss then called again, and said the generator wasn't enough for everything, so just the graphics staff was going in. So I took a nap. Oh yes, I did.

If the power's not back on tomorrow, we may be in trouble. As in, we will probably have to work Saturday. We might have to, anyway.

But, you know what? My house didn't get hit by a tornado. So I'm not complaining. I'll deal.

No cygnets yet, but there are a slew of goslings this year. More pictures and video here.

nesting, originally uploaded by Lizzie~Belle.

Amazingly, it wasn't raining when I went to lunch this afternoon. In fact, the sun poked through the clouds a couple of times for a minute or two, and is now happily shining away. So much for the forecast. Not that I'm complaining!

So I decided to risk walking down to the park, despite dire predictions of thunderstorms. I peeked over the fencing at the nest, as Mr Prissy was on the other side of the pond, harassing the geese.

Guess what I saw? )



I wandered around the pond, and as I came around the corner, I spied another wonder: )

Oh, and on the way to work this morning, I saw a bald eagle flying over the bridge! So it was an awesome bird-spotting day. :)

pretty bird, originally uploaded by Lizzie~Belle.

The swans are back at Heritage Park, and it was actually sunny at lunchtime today so I popped down there to take pictures. Mr Prissy followed me up the embankment, and even tried to bite me when I got too close with the camera, but mostly he just posed for me in his usual prissy way. He's such a silly bird.

ready..., originally uploaded by Lizzie~Belle.

The buds on the trees look like they're ready for some action. We just need a little warm, sunny weather!

Also, )



And I heard peepers in the swamp behind the parking lot when I left work today! Yay, peepers!

I got a new computer at work today. I didn't get it until the end of the day, so there was no time to play with it and customize it. It's going to take a little getting used to, as it's Windows 7 (I had XP before). The first thing I noticed about it was that it looks suspiciously like Mac OS X. They're not even pretending they're not stealing from Mac anymore! *g*

I caught a few seconds of this grackle taking a bath by the pond at lunchtime. There were lots of grackles, robins, and geese hanging out by or in the pond today, perhaps getting a little enjoyment before the snow begins tonight.

I'm kind of afraid to look at a weather forecast. This morning, they still weren't sure what we were going to get. Anything from just rain to a foot of snow.

thawed, originally uploaded by Lizzie~Belle.

I had a very annoying day today. Annoying customers, annoying readers, annoying coworkers. They were all determined to make me cranky. I tried so hard not to be cranky, but I didn't really succeed.

One of the things making me cranky was that my coworker decided to take today off instead of tomorrow, leaving me alone all day for the second day in a row. Then she came in to take care of something urgent, and I found out that her daughter's fiancee had called off the wedding last night, which is why she took the day off. So then I felt badly for being cranky about her being out. My day was suddenly not so bad.

The pond down at the park has completely thawed, which made the geese and ducks happy, I'm sure.

I stopped at Stanley Park on the way home this evening to see if the snowdrops were blooming yet. They were! Yay, snowdrops!

It was a gorgeous day today. I walked down to Heritage Park at lunch and tromped through the woods, listening to the birds sing. It was lovely. We had the doors and windows open at the office, and the fresh air felt so good.

Three days until the spring equinox!

We really lucked out and got just rain this time. Folks in NY and VT weren't so lucky; they got tons of snow.

Of course, all this rain plus melting snow equals flooding. I passed at least one closed road this morning on my way to work.

Ice skating season is definitely over at Heritage Park.

It was nice to see open water, but the poor trees didn't look too happy about it.

I'm just glad I don't have a basement!
