Good morning. Yesterday I had a request for the slow cooker stuffed pepper recipe, so I posted it here. Just look below this post if you would like the recipe.
It's not quite so cold this morning, mid 30's, with the promise of getting one or two degrees warmer later in the day. We're also supposed to be getting a mix of snow and rain. Tonight the temps will drop to around 20F so the rain will create an icy problem for a lot of folks.
Because of storm Hektor, 70 million people are under winter weather advisories. 13 million folks are right now under freezing rain advisories. Incredible!! If all of this wicked weather is part of the changing climate, then I'd say Mother Nature got us back really good!
I really did not do much of anything yesterday. At least nothing of importance was accomplished. I did check the birdie's water bowl and replenish some of the water. Except for one time, I don't ever see any of the birds at the water bowl. Maybe more will use it when the weather gets warmer. We'll see.
Remember a while back I said that I was making a lightweight ponco? Well, I've been wearing it nights to ward off cold chills. It keeps my shoulders and back warm. I may have to make it a bit longer, and I still have to finish off the neckline, but it really has come in quite handy.
Last night, I worked a bit on the Sunshine yellow afghan, but my eyes get tired so I stopped after a while. I do have an appointment coming up next Monday for an eye exam, and most likely a prescription for a new pair of eye glasses. This should help my eyes get back to normal.
Today I have a few photos of an adorable little Tufted Titmouse enjoying the peanuts that I toss out for the birds and small critters. These photos were taken through the kitchen window.
My enjoyment of our little birds has spread to all of the dwarfs. Whenever any of them is in the kitchen, they spend a few minutes at the windows watching these fun little birds.
I've been neglecting my kitchen/pantry project quite a bit lately but I think today I shall get back to it. Also, yesterday I did not get to the store to pick up bird seed and maybe a small tree, so I'm hoping to do this maybe tomorrow. Today's weather is too yucky to go out.
While I'm out tomorrow, I'll have to stop by the bank. No matter what the weather brings, the bills must be paid. Interesting, but paying bills is probably one of the few things that bad weather does not stop.
Well, that's about all the news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all try to stay warm and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
