Thanks for the belly laugh, Kathleen!

Kathleen, that picture is delightful. Thanks for my laugh for the day.

25ºF. and bright sunshine. I was planning on going out for a while. Too cold to run around on the scooter. I wish I had a windshield on it. I am supposed ot get a new scooter this summer. If not, then maybe I will buy the windshield with my savings account. Something to save for.

Cold here, icy. Went out to feed wildlife this morn at 8:30 (late), and found wild turkeys waiting by the shed where I keep birdseed, and a red squirrel, and a small doe.

Our driveway is treacherous to walk on as it is sheer ice.



Here are the turkeys. I thought they were mebbe frozen to the ground...

What a pleasant way to start your day. I love watching wildlife. When we lived on the farm, my favorite time of the day was early in the morning when everyone else was sleeping still. I love watching the world come to life. Even today, we have a big tree in the middle of the patio and in the spring it is full of nesting families of chickadees. I will take a cup of coffee and my crocheting with me and sit down there before the rest of the building is up and about. There is a loud chorus of babies wanting to eat. As if there was a signal, all the parents take off to get food for their babies.

The Gusts Are Howling In The Madrid Capital, Spain

Blue skies, sunny sunny, dry and ( 646 metres above sea level ) terribly windy at 25 degrees farenheit.

We are having a cold spell.

It very rarely snows in Madrid Capital.

It would be a nice day, if the Winds would subside.

The Gusts are Howling.

I know it seems absurd, but the windows are wide open again, still.

In the last week, they have been closed for maybe a couple of hours early in the morning.

29°F, again...probably down to 20° overnight. It has been so clear lately we have no heat stored up, the bright, sunny days are bitter cold. I'm still wearing my sweater coat.
