Ducks and puddles. . .



It's been raining and raining and raining.  The wind got up and then died down and is now howling again. 

This afternoon, Duck wanted to go for a walk and show off his new scarf that I had knitted him. So between showers we wondered out down the lane to see if there was anyone about who might admire Ducks' new scarf.  Once Duck had finished showing off, I said that it might be a good idea to head home before another rain cloud came over.  Duck said he thought it would be an ideal time to find a good splishy splashy puddle and go for a swim...  Ducks have no sense of weather...at all!

That's my Fun and Nonsense for today...hope it's swimming weather where you are... :)

Our little girl duck Squeaky could use some woozy socks for her little rubbery feet. (scary story involving frozen waters...) Though she would look stunning in a scarf too...
No sun here today, just gentle and decorative snow flurries all day... Perfectly wintery looking out there!! :)))))
