Back Door Guests


These deer were right outside my bathroom window. When I opened the blind they took off. I snapped this picture through the window. They sure blend in with the woods, don't they?
Tonight coming home from school, I must have seen twenty deer. It isn't unusual to see several esp. in the evenings. My husband said that he almost hit two tonight. It seems that they were out and about tonight for sure. Could it be because we had a heat wave of 30 degrees. It also was still light out (well almost) when I got home tonight. That is exciting in itself.
Well, I'm off to bed. Tomorrow my husband is having his knee surgery so we will be leaving early in the morning. It is out patient surgery. I am hoping and praying it will ease the pain he is in. He will eventually need a replacement.
The deer must be back, Izzy and Piper are barking like crazy.

Wow, that's so cool to see deer outside your window! And to see snow for that matter. (It's 35degrees C here today so I'd like a little snow to cool me down). I'll be praying for your husband Debby, that his knee op goes well and that there wont be any pain after it. All the best,

We see deer around our place too but never that close.

I will keep your hubby in my prayers.

Hope your husband does well with the surgery tomorrow.

Hi Debbie...Isn't it amazing how many deer are around anymore! If you look at a newly fallen snow you see so many deer tracks it looks like there was a deer party overnight! I hate to see so many that have been hit at the side of the road. Be safe out there!~Hugs, Patti

Hi Debby,

We found you over at Mona's this morning while we were visiting.

What a lovely Blog you have. We began in July, actually July 2 was our first post.

Your husband is in our prayers. Looking forward to a new cyberspace friendship.

Hugs,
Joyce

The bears are shy but trust me, they will warm up to you quickly, maybe to quickly. )o:
