I love these cold sunny days, watching the birds at the feeders. We have juncos, chickadees, towhees, and sparrows at the suet feeder right outside the office window. The bush tits haven't made their appearance yet today. They are so cute and flock all over the tree and feeder. Sweet little brown things.

I am so grateful for the sunshine and for birds to watch, and for a sweet husband who hangs feeders where I can see them.

A New World

What a wonderfully sunny, happy day! There was such positive energy surrounding everyone who came into the store. One customer mentioned that today it is a whole new world... and I agree!

Isn't it the most amazing thing how one man taking office can generate such a positive hopeful atmosphere? *happy smile*

It's always something

We've gone from cold snowy weather, to just-warm-enough-for-rain weather. And combined with the melting snow, we're flooding in Whatcom County. We are driving through water to get in and out of our subdivision, the creek is now flowing across the road. Our house and yard are doing fine... just a bit soggier than usual. Luckily this is around the corner from us...

Between being somewhat housebound with the snow, and then days on end of rain, I'm getting a bit stir crazy. I can't seem to focus on doing anything, even my art. It will all get better... and drier... soon.

I wish we could just get in the motorhome and head for sunshine; surely there is sunshine somewhere. Can you imagine just driving until you found it? We actually did that one winter several years ago, found some lovely sun on the southern Oregon coast. It was quite wonderful. Sigh!

I'm imagining sunny crocus in the garden... :)
