There's not much new to report from my neck of the woods.
The weather has warmed up, but the fog and the rain quickly rolled in shortly after I took these images a few days ago, so it's been rather bleak around here.
I'm on deadline for a story, and because procrastination is my middle name, I've been busy surfing websites hunting for end of season deals instead of taking pictures to accompany my story...I blame the lousy weather for not allowing me to take good pics and finish my assignment! ;-)
We filled the bird feeders before the bitter cold and light dusting of snow hit last week, and the birds all seem appreciative of our efforts. I don't even know what kind of bird this little guy pictured above is, any birders out there that can help me out?
Of course I always know this bird when I see it, and I always smile when a bluebird graces me with his or her presence. I think they secretly know that just a little flash of their bold blue feathers will help bolster me throughout the day and remind me that the colors of spring must be just around the corner!
I'm off now to do some cleaning, and to talk myself out of a pair of boots I've been eyeing for 2 months now. Sure, they are on sale, but they aren't dirt cheap yet, and that's the only way I like my after season sales items...so Coach, if you're listening...please take 90% off of all your boots so that I can get my work done...ok?!...and thanks in advance!
