Snow and Birds

What fun it's been watching all of the birds feed during this snow storm. We've had wrens, junco's, downy woodpecker, flickers, hummingbirds and lots more. The hummingbird feeders froze up a couple days ago so we had to thaw them and get them back out so they would have more energy. It amazes me that they stick around all winter.

I just talked to a granddaughter via the cam. They live in Norfolk VA. She loved looking at the snow outside via the cam. It's so much fun to chat with the little ones ( 1 1/2 and 3 1/2). Nothing is neater than when they squeal out "Nanaaaa"

We are not leaving the hill and to think this will go on to or through Christmas....

No Snow but.....

Baby it's cold outside. Down to 16.7 degree's last night. The leaves go scrunch, scrunch as you walk over them in the yard. Even wonder if the plants I covered will make it through the freezing weather.

Tomorrow snow is in the advisory, again on the weekend. It might be cold for some time. Takes me back to my younger years when hard winters were more often.

Glad my Christmas shopping was done early and by the time the cold spell started they were wrapped, bagged and around the tree. Going to finish picking up what I need for Christmas brunch at our son's (if we can get there) today so I'm 100% done.

I'm dreaming of a White Christmas, just like the ones I used to know.....
