Saturday Night


The snow covers up the Christmas lights every now and then.  I look at them glowing underneath the white and I think of gumdrops.  Maybe it’s a little weird or maybe it’s just me.  I think it looks kinda of cool glowing like they do.  They’ll melt thru soon enough.

I looked out the back window and I saw the silhouette of a bunny busy feeding at the dish of food that I set out for them.  I’m sure there are more than just the one but the one will do for now.  At least one of them won’t go hungry tonight.   The sight of it feeding left me feeling it this was a pretty good day after all.

Saturday Morning


The Ice Maiden dumped another 6 inches (15CM) of brand new icky bad white stuff on us.  Fortunately it stopped.  I got up, looked outside, did a shiver and headed straight for the coffee maker.  I had to fortify myself with a cup of coffee before I drug out my extreme cold winter boots and got dressed to go clear the drive.

Man, did the wind ever bite at my face when I was out there.  It took a while for me to get the snowblower started and running on its own and we went to work on the snow.  The drive is clean but now I’m waiting for the snowplow to go by and fill up the end of my drive so I have to clean it out again.  Ugh!  It’s too cold outside for this.

I was cleaning off the deck so I could get to the feeders and the bird bath when I heard the Blue Jay calling.  I’m pretty sure he’s nesting up in the pines but I haven’t quite figured out how to attract him and the woodpeckers that are around here.  I have an idea and hopefully it will work out.

In the meanwhile, I’m back inside where it’s warm and I just notice that the plow just went by plugging up my drive and the area in front of my mail box.  I have to go back out and brave the cold once again.  Ugh!  I hate winter in Minnesota.
