Snowy Thoughts
Snow is beautiful from inside a house - as long as the power stays on and there's plenty of food in the kitchen.

We have about a foot of snow - maybe a little more. The weather forecast for tonight and tomorrow is snow, snow, snow and cold, cold, cold.

I was never one to wimp out on driving to work in bad weather, but it sure is an appreciated luxury to not be working this January. I can't remember the last time in my life I didn't have to brave the bad winter roads. It was decades ago.

It's wonderful knitting weather. Five heavy wool vests and three pair of socks are finished for CIC.

When I take the little dogs out for a walk on the back three acres, they leap through the snow and have a great time. It takes them about ten minutes to get completely exhausted. The snow is higher than the top of their backs. If it keeps snowing, the snow will be over their heads by tomorrow.

It's fun to feed the birds and watch them at the feeders. I set out some unloved doggy treats and watched the bluejays gobble them down. We have some dog food the dogs won't eat. Wonder if the birds would like that.

Do you feed the birds?
