*Sniffle* *Sneeze* *Snort* My weekend didn't go quite as planned. Saturday, I woke up with a full blown cold and today my ears are all plugged up. I was able to sleep most of the afternoon and Grace even made me toast in bed. :0) I think I will be feeling much better tomorrow.
Here are a few pictures Phillip took this weekend...
These trees are behind my mother-in-law's house.
Frozen droplets on pretty red leaves.
It was a good day for bird watching. Our feeders were busy with our feathered friends, trying to keep warm.
A Mourning Dove all fluffed up.
There were 5 male cardinals in the trees behind my MIL's house!
A female cardinal.
The girls and Benjamin have named this Blue Jay, "Jay-Jay." He keeps everyone on their toes!
Sparrows are always hungry.
A shrill wind blew about the house
And through the pines all night:
The snowflakes whirled across the fields
And hid the fence from sight.
By dawn the drifts had blown so deep
No horse nor sleigh could go:
The dog-house and the chicken-coops
Were buried in the snow.
There was no thought of school that day;
We worked with shovels all,
And cleared a path from horse to barn;
The snow was like a wall.
I wished our house was covered up,
Like that one in the book
My Grandma showed to me one day
Beside the chimney-nook.
The story said the chimney-pot
Just showed above the snow,
And all day long the lamps were lit
Down in the house below.
I hope you all are staying warm!
