This has been one of those best kinds of days when I've been able to pack in some of most of the things I love to do most. Now, if I can do a bit of sewing sometime before my head hits the pillow for the night, it will have been pretty close to perfect. :)
Our laptop is parked on the table by the kitchen window so I can look out and watch the birds feed or bathe or dream about prowling through the woods here behind the house. But not much time for that early this a.m. I had just turned it on, gotten the pups outside and back in, grabbed my first cup of coffee and plunked myself down in from of the laptop---when my sister called to see if it was snowing here cuz it was where she lives (only 45 min from my house). She WAS NOT happy to see that beautiful white stuff yet---she tends to get a bit testy over even just a few flurries :D, and she was REALLY out of sorts when I told her the sun was shining here and that I had not seen even a speck of white. LOL Well, the sun WAS shining at that time. :) By 9 a.m. the skies were overcast, and no sun to be seen for the rest of this day.
We chatted quite a while about unidentified plants, and birds, and cameras, and weather, and we decided to share pictures with each other (she asking if I could identify a particular plant---and nope, I couldn't name this one), me just because we were trying different settings on our cameras. We both have the same Kodak.
The wind is getting up now. I would have thought it was too cold for the Sparrows to bathe, but evidently not, because I've been sitting here watching them bathe and preen. :) Guess one needs his weekly bath on a Saturday night now matter what, huh? LOL They provide me with endless entertainment. :) There are bunches of Mourning Doves, Finches, and Sparrows at the baths and feeders right now, along with another one of my most favorite little birds, the Carolina Wren. I have been thrilled the last couple of weeks to have that little wren here. :) They are so sweet.
