Well of course our well thought out decision to err on the side of caution and not venture off this morning for Kelly's ultra-sound appointment due to bad weather was all for not.  Weather was fine of course and we could have easily been to London and back having never encountered so much as a snowflake.  I'm sure for her re-scheduled appointment Tuesday morning we'll be driving in what will go down as the biggest winter storm of the century!!

Pheebs and I didn't venture far and were home fifteen minutes after we left.  Couldn't seem to get myself interested in a Jeep ride this morning.  Snowed once and a while through the afternoon and evening and that was about it.  Nothing serious but we do have a weather advisory for tonight.  I never ventured out of the house for the rest of the day and spent most of my time tucked away in my sunroom recliner reading and watching all the birds coming and going.  The worse the weather, the more birds we have.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( These are real notes written from parents in a Mississippi school district.

- Please excuse Roland from P.E. for a few days.  Yesterday he fell out of a tree and misplaced his hip.

- John has been absent because he had two teeth taken out of his face.

Ethel Pearl could not come to school today because she has been bothered by very close veins.

Please excuse Tommy for being absent yesterday. He had diarrhea and his boots leak.

Please excuse Jennifer for missing school yesterday. We forgot to get the Sunday paper off the porch, and when we found it Monday, we thought it was Sunday.-


In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, and then He rested.
Then God created man, and then they both rested.
Then God created woman, and since then neither God nor man has ever rested.



  1. You sure have a great close-up or two there!

  2. Glad you're there to feed them. Would you believe one of the reasons Dolly stays home is to feed her birds.

  3. Isn't that always the way? No, the weather is probably going to be bad, so we'll wait. And then it's really bad for the postponed trip. I hope it won't be for yours. Thank you for the juncos. I do love those little birds, and haven't seen any in a long time down here.

  4. Your photos of the birds just keep getting better and better.

  5. Your right about the Weather. First it was supposed to be Friday then Monday now it looks like Tuesday will be the worst day.
    The Birds must be Tweeting about your feeders. Soon they'll be pecking on your windows when they go empty.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  6. Love your pretty birds. That first round one is so cute! Our quail are looking like small balls too :-)
