Let’s Eat!

03 Feb

Every bird in my town is in my backyard on the feeder kicking seeds around, and filling up on what I’ve put out for them. Well, almost. There are two pairs of cardinals and this is one of the females.

The days have been very cold and snow remains on the ground-about 2 inches. The roads remain icey but more safe than before to drive. We expect more snow tomorrow.

I don’t mind being at home for days. Some get cabin fever. At one time, I did. But after years of travel and being away from home so much, there’s nothing better than being right here. Besides, there is plenty to do here: sewing, playing with my boy, writing, painting, and of course, taking and processing photos. Did I mention how much I love to cook? It’s my 3rd day home and I snuggled up this morning with my cat lying on my back purring and kneading and thought about this new home and the peace and creativity it offers.

The coffee brewed while I got dressed, put on my socks and tiptoed into the baby’s room. He remained asleep. Water began to boil while a box of oats sat next to two small bowls.

A male cardinal swooped in and moved all other birds off the feeder.

    Your writing is reminiscent of mine – writing about birds, about feeling peaceful where you live. Lovely.

    Thought of you this morning as we were watching streaming news video from your part of Texas. Are you snowed in?

    Again…makes me feel like back home, thankyou for memories πŸ™‚ Dad always built the bird feeders and my family and I loved to watch in the winter time. Mom would say “shhhhh” be quiet so we don’t scare them away!”

    Gorgeous shots of your birdies! So cute and the photos look ‘alive’!
