Rain, Sleet and Snow Arriving

Starting to rain, sleet tomorrow turning to snow.  Quick arrival and predicted quick withdrawal,
hope so.

Inside day, enjoyed some reading -  Mary Oliver always so special
and keep carefully pushing my comfortable chair closer to gas logs (wish it was wood)
trying to find just the right spot for reading, looking out window and TV.  Watch very little
television but still have 2 movies sent to me by Netflex and just have not felt like viewing them.
Even moved desk in bedroom to make it easier to take a photo of bird feeders.
Not a fan of squirrels and many here by the edge of the woods.  This one has chewed
my special angel.  Found it on the ground and what it is made of must be tasty.
When Callie is outside she keeps them away.  With being inside with me much this winter
on her rug by the door - she has gained weight.  Soon being outside she will probably lose
the weight.
 
Quick trip early this morning to very small town 5 minutes away
to take off trash and pull in drive in window of very old drugstore
for renewal of some medication.  The drive in window
is the best improvement they have made in the last years.
 
Home, filled 3 bird feeders in front, 3 in back and put new suet cakes out.  Not a bird in site
and when I came inside they were flocking by the feeders.  They sure know when I do this
and also that the weather is changing soon.  So muddy outside....

Looking forward to baking tomorrow

I love the drive-in window at my drugstore. With arthritis in my hips, I groan getting out of the car. Be careful with the change in weather again.

Wow, more winter weather for you. Pretty soon nicer weather will be there.

Stay warm and snug there in your lovely, cozy home. Enjoy the beauty that surrounds you.

Love, hugs and prayers ~ FlowerLady

So glad you are posting once again adn back into a routine. Spring is coming, so just hold your breath...it will surprise you!

Judy said...

I made a feeding station just for the squirrels and wonder of wonders, they now stay away from the bird feeders.

Barb said...

More snow for you? I think baking, reading by your fire, and watching the birds sound like good activities.

Chip Butter said...

Your home looks so cozy with a nice warm fire, and not so dusty as wood would be (know that first hand). Spring is just around the corner...perhaps as early as next week!

Sandra said...

Such a snug place and comfortable chair by your fire. So lovely for you to observe the birds and it will soon be baking time again! So much to be grateful for despite new snowfalls!

Sallysmom, Lorraine, Pienosole, Tabor, Judy, Barb, Chip Butter and Sandra, so good to see all of these comments this early raining morning. Spring has to be on the way..

Batten down the hatches.... It will hit me before you, but, you will probably get more snow and ice than me. My brother lives close to Kentucky Lake and they always get more than we do in Memphis. I pick up Forrest today before the storm and then I am in until it melts..... Do Not Go Outside....orders from your friend.... Love and Hugs....

Beverly, I am obeying you :)
Cold rain at the moment and would like to refill feeders - but will not venture out.
Young granddaughter's will be out tomorrow and maybe Friday in Nashville. More time off this year then ever before.
So many projects undone and have felt like doing nothing.
Spring I am ready for you...
