Baby it's cold outside !!!
Hi Everyone, I wanted to chat today about this winter. Now I know there are some of you out there that are "Winter Lovers", but me, I am not one of them. I like the snow on Christmas Eve, and a little here and there, but this frigid weather we have had for so many weeks now is getting a bit "old". Now that we are in single digits at times, I am quite content to stay in my house and feed my wood burner. I cannot imagine living a generation or two ago when homes relied only on a small wood or coal burner. And the bathroom was an outhouse...Omg, I think I would have been a thinner person for sure, watching what I ate or drank in fear of going outside in the cold.
My bird feeders are empty every other day, and the squirrels, well....while I know they are also hungry, they are very much gluttons when it comes to the peanut butter logs and the seed. I am ready to try and grease the tree limbs to force them to "share" a bit...if anything it would be funny to watch...but for now, they are just hanging upside down and eating away while the little birds just sit and wait their turn. I think today I will work on decorating some of my vintage crocks and jugs for my upcoming craft shows. I really have to concentrate on sitting in the basement again. Having a few weeks off really makes it hard to get back into my creative side. I am posting a few pictures of my yard, waiting for my husband to plow it. One after thought, why did I hang all the bird feeders where I have to walk through all the snow to fill them? Everyone have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your day. Hugs....Denise
