Good morning. Well, the sun is shining, and Storm Juno fizzled out during the night. Thank goodness for that! Joe worked wonders trying to keep up with the snow that has been falling since Monday, and the snow plow came in this morning at 7:15 for the last time to clean up the parking lot again.
There is a lot of snow on our porch roof, but Joe will clear most of that away this afternoon when he gets home from work. We surely don't need any problems with the roof falling in on the porch. Even though we got a ton of snow here, we were very fortunate that we did not lose our electric power. In reality, things could have been a lot worse, so I am very thankful how things turned out here.
Yesterday, I had fun watching our little birdies scratching around for food. The snow had everything buried. As soon as I would send out more bird seed and bits of bread, the snow would cover over it. I finally got smart and had Joe spread a whole bowl of seed underneath my car. This way the little birds could eat their food and be out of the weather.
Here are a few photos of our little birds from yesterday. The square feeder in the last photo was almost empty, so I made up some new buns lathered in peanut butter to fill them again. The birds seem to like the peanut butter very much.
The word for Day 28 is "Lead" which can be interpreted in more than one way. You can "lead" someone, or you can have something made of or with "lead". I chose a "lead" pencil used for writing.
A few minutes ago, I spotted some of our little birds outside my window looking for food, so I just took a small break to put some more food out for them. When I took the food outside, there was a small group of birdies sitting in and on my hedge waiting for the food. There was a couple of chickadees, a little brown wren, a finch, a couple of dark eyed juncos and a few sparrows. I am always amazed at how they can all get along so well together.
Now I really must have myself a hot cup of coffee. I've paid the plow guy, fed the birds, checked with a couple of the dwarfs, fed Pogo his breakfast and typed my blog. It's time to get some hot coffee and maybe a few bites of something tasty into this old gal. So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
