Wesley Chapel, Florida (high 88, low 63)
Yesterday, when I tried to pull up my blog via my cell phone, I got the dreaded message, “this blog has been removed.” I thought it was just a fluke and tried again. Same message. It directed me to a site that told me the possible causes. I was getting worried about that time and started to think what I would lose if I lost my entire blog.
I finally found out there had been suspicious activity on my blog and that I would need to verify who I was. After I verified this info my blog miraculously reappeared!
Suspicious activity? What does that mean? That’s worrisome.
I can tell you, by that time, I had really started to panic!
So, the moral of the story is. Back up your blog! No, I hadn’t done that. Yes, I remembered Rick writing something about that a while back and also the Geeks on Tour. I will have to go back and figure out how to do it, but man, what I would have lost if the blog was gone!!
We have really enjoying our new wooded site and sitting outside a lot more. Yesterday morning, I was out around 6:30 and saw three deer.
There is a drainage ditch behind the site which normally has water in it, but is currently dry. It’s prettier than it sounds! It’s full of cat tails. Beyond that is a beautiful wooded piece of property. That’s where the deer live. We frequently see them along side the road leading into the campground. It’s nice to see them in our own back yard.
We’ve put up the birdfeeders and have attracted a large family of Black Capped Chickadees.
I’ve not gotten any good pictures yet, but I’m working on it.
The feeder above hangs from a branch, so it is not squirrel proof.
The squirrel proof feeder was laying on the ground until Al got around to putting it up. Last night a squirrel went over to the feeder, looked at it then scurried up the tree and looked at me as if to say, where is the food?
About 5 minutes later, he was in the hanging feeder.
We have a male cardinal, but so far the female hasn’t shown up. We think she’s probably sitting on a nest, so we can expect some babies soon.
We are really enjoying this beautiful site. The two negatives are that we are close to the interstate, and that it is quite a bit shorter than our previous site. It’s still a very large site compared so most campgrounds.
The grass is a bit dry and brown, but we’re expecting lots of rain soon, so it will green up. Unfortunately, it will also bring out more frogs and mosquitoes.
We have a double concrete site, so we have concrete for the motor home and the vehicles. That sure makes it nice to keep from tracking in dirt and grass.
I’ve gotten a couple requests for some pictures of the site, and I’ll post a few more once we get finished putting our stuff away and prettying it up!
We’ve seen a lot of birds flying overhead, including swallow tail kites, sandhill cranes, bluebirds, and ducks. I need to keep my camera handy!
