Just Another Balmy Day Around Here

... and we're due for a high temperature today of only 8 degrees.

Our poor old mailbox tends to drop into the snow below when the snowplow rumbles past. I had to wrap an extra bungee cord around it yesterday (in 12 degrees). In Spring we really should screw the silly thing onto its post.

That red blob is Mr. Cardinal.

We feel good feeding the birds during our cold winters. As though we're doing our part to keep the whole ecosystem balanced. As though we're helping God with them since He knows when a sparrow falls, and everything...

All photos taken from our dining room windows.

Not quite as cold here even though it did reach a low of 13 last night and we do have sunshine but they are talking about something falling out of the sky by tomorrow. Hopefully it will be in the south again and fizzle out by the time it gets this far north. Stay warm and safe.

It looks oh so cold, but the cardinal is so worth seeing. We don't have these beautiful birds around here so I would love to see one up close and personal. It's so nice to see them fed and happy. Nice pics, Pearl
