Since in the garden of Frimousse there are no more cats, I give seeds to the birds. Many tits, finches, rarely sparrows, from time to time serins, and, every day, the great spotted woodpecker and the Bullfinch family – this morning, for the first time, there are two Mrs Bullfinch!
There are no more cats? There’s Moka, the black pussy ! She hides under the balcony and runs away when she hears me going out. She caught a tit before Christmas, but nothing since, it seems. Unless it happened while I was doing my tour – walking or jogging – above our house or by the Lake.
I have walked or jogged 216 km (135M) since January 1 – I make a note of it everyday, not to boast but to encourage myself. I’m amazed my knees don’t get any worse, when they should! Really a huge regret: having had a prosthesis (PUC) fitted on my right knee, prosthesis that wears.
Some of you know that I’ve created a Running blog to talk about racing. I can’t run therefore I talk! Last Friday evening the Mistress of Frimousse, her nephew and two of her friends took part in the Glières relay. Cross-country skiing (skating) running (trail) at night (departure 7pm) and in the snow. By teams of two. 62 teams. I am talking about it here.
135 miles – quite an accomplishment, as is not hurting your knees ! Bravo !
Thanks for the encouragement.
My knees… well, they are bound to stop bearing me one day! It’s how it goes, isn’t it?
Great that you are out and about. We have outside cats around the area but the pesticides are what knock the birds out around here. No insects, no birds. If birds poor eggshells
No insects on windscreens, very few sparrows… Pesticides will kill us all. Those who use them won’t listen. Even if they are the first victims, actually. Hopeless. Poor children, poor birds…
stunning woodpecker- we don’t have those in Canada! and congrats on the jogging! good for you
And this woodpecker is quite friendly! He’s waiting for grease balls when there are none left.
Jogging… as long as that [expletive deleted] unicompartimental prosthesis lasts…
