Awww...sounds nice, Holy.

It's 9:30AM here, just finished my second cup of coffee, and thinking I'll get my pillow and a blanket and head for the recliner to watch "The Martian" on PPV. I see a lazy day ahead.

Thinking about heading out to do a little grocery shopping. Don't need much, so it's hard to get motivated. I'd better go soon, though, before all the Panic People show up and clean out all the milk. "Snowflake! Yikes! Panic!" Yeah, they get like that up here.

We are having what the weather service likes to call a "weather event." Been snowing since just before sunrise (well it didn't rise, but you get the idea) and isn't showing any slow down yet. Windy, too, so we have light drifting. My best estimation is that we've gotten at least 8 inches.

I just came inside from filling the front bird feeder and replenishing the suet cage. Glad I made a recipe of suet yesterday. It won't be long before I have to make more.

Here are a couple of pictures. The first one is our view from our front living room windows. Obviously I took this one before I filled everything up. If you look closely, you can count 7 cardinals, mostly males but there are a few hens, too.

The second photo is of our driveway. I guess it's there somewhere.

We're getting that winter storm, too, Katie - at least, as much as we're going to We probably got an inch or so, but it didn't stick to the street or sidewalks. Then it's supposed to rain tomorrow and snow again tomorrow night. I took these pix about two and three hours ago.

Hey, that's a significant amount for us!

When I see a cardinal I think of this.

"A cardinal is a representative of a loved one who has passed. When you see one, it means they are visiting you. They usually show up when you most need them or miss them. They also make an appearance during times of celebration as well as despair to let you know they will always be with you. Look for them, they'll appear."

Pretty snow pics, Katie and GG.
AB, what a beautiful sentiment about the cardinals!

I just got back from a quick trip to the mini mart for milk and eggs. On a whim, I bought a $5 lottery scratcher and won $100.

Congrats, Cheryl! The only thing I've ever won in my life was a 2 liter bottle of Mountain Dew, and that was 25 years ago!

I was wondering if anyone out there knows what store sells the brand of flatbread called "Specially Selected Stone Baked Garlic Cheese Flatbread"? I saved the name at the end of the carton but forgot what store I bought it at in the freezer section. I have gone to the stores in my area but can't find it anywhere. Oh, it was so good.
