Saturday

Soggy. It's very soggy. Lots of rain and melting snow. The beautiful white world of last week has turned into a muddy mess. I went out today, out to face the last weekend of holiday madness. It is possible that by some slim chance I may pull off actually being ready again this year. (Keep your fingers crossed.) I have a couple extra days this time since out family gathering isn't until next Saturday.

Since I didn't take any photos of the melting mess, you get to enjoy wintery white snow photos instead. (Lucky you!) This is from my walk around the back of the barn the other day.


And some birds too. Every morning I toss a handful of in-the-shell peanuts out for the blue jays. Hannah and I had to laugh at one bird this morning. He wanted to make sure he got the biggest peanut and so kept hopping from one to another, picking them up and dropping them, and he definitely didn't want to share with anyone else either. Kind of like people in a way.

Haven't seen the juncos since the weather warmed up, but the sparrows are out in abundance along with a friendly flicker. (Wishing I had a wide angle lens today, but Grandmanita is coming late nest week. Maybe she can get some good shots.)

  1. Love your winter wonderland.. Perhaps pictures of the Messy Mud wouldn't be so breathtaking.
    Just so you know...Monday I am mailing out a small box to replace the one that hasn't arrived. This has a fresh loaf just made and some of my candied nuts. I'm praying this box gets to you.. Since it won't get there for Christmas....May I be the first to wish you a Happy New Year.

    1. Yes, it is. Perhaps by Christmas our world will be wearing a fresh blanket.
