In the Quiet

It was a quiet weekend. I stayed home, cleaned, and sorted through stacks of "rubble". I learned, that in spite of often feeling like I can't catch up, I really can if given the time and space. There is still a long way to go if I want to sort through all the "junk" we've collected, but you won't be seeing us on the next episode of "Hoarders" anytime soon. (Please don't be disappointed.)

Last week, long before the cold and snow descended on the northeast, I filled my little bird feeder with seeds. It went untouched for many days and I thought perhaps all of my summer bird friends had moved on, but when the storm moved in, so did the little birds. They've been very happy with my meager offering. I haven't see any cardinals yet, and the bluejays haven't been back, but these (I can't see them very well... are they chickadees?) little birds are fun to watch even if they don't have bright colors.

    1. I do believe it is. I didn't think they looked like chickadees... But Grandma wasn't here to ask. :)

  2. Yeah, it's a Junco! They are cute little things!

    1. They are cute, and they like to sit all puffed up on the branches of the tree.

  3. My Juncos eat off the ground....
    Lots of Cardinals...but no Jays this winter...
    Your new header is beautiful...
    Enjoy the week ahead♥
    Linda :o)

    1. One of these little guys sits up at the feeder and knocks the seeds down to the ground. Then they all have some.

      The bluejays made an appearance this morning. There were at least three or four. Hard to capture them through the windows.

      Stay warm!
