We are expecting more cold. I was thinking last night, that this is the first year I haven't always had the bird feeders filled. It's just been too treacherous to try to fill them on occasion I've learned a lesson...to keep a path cleared to the feeders. I have sprinkled birdseed on the ground and I've thrown out bread, pancakes, waffles, peanuts etc. They don't like to change their habits...They will come continually to the empty feeder. The little bird that was shivering in the corner of the feeder, was here for a couple of days. There was a suet block where he was sitting. When Joe went out to the mailbox the next day...he was on the ground, shivering... and all puffed up. Joe scooted him into the bushes for his protection. I wanted to bring him in, but I know better than that. I haven't seen him...so I suppose he died. There's a squirrel on the feeder here by my window. He's eating the sunflower seeds...and swinging in the breeze.I've seen several squirrels lately....as I look now...there's a new one here. The first was a Fox squirrel...this one is gray.My goodness, I wish you were here...there is a squirrel party going on...one on the feeder and three chasing around the yard. Maybe it's time for mating...
We are going out to a steak house today. Joe is hungry for steak and I won't say no to a meal out. I've cut down on my meat consumption....so maybe I'll find something else or just a very small steak. I always like the sides more than the meat. I love vegetables and salads. My kids are vegetarians.
This blog is much easier for me to do...so I guess I'll keep posting here. Hope you all spread the word.....and let bloggers know where I am. Today is the day that we post our pictures of the little felt animals that we are making for next Christmas...so I may be back later.
Have a nice day...Balisha
