Light and Shade
After kidding myself that the cold temperatures were finally over I woke up yesterday morning to -16 C. With the wind that was blowing it was bitter outside. When the sun came up and coming through the windows, I noticed that there were nice light and shadows on things in the house. Being too cold to spend any time outside, and camera at hand, decided to try some pictures. This morning it's -20 C, the fire went out over night and I'm sitting here trying to type with frozen fingers. One wonders if it will ever get warm again.
Lots of birds around, still getting Goldfinches, Pine Siskins, loads of Juncos along with the regulars, Jays, Chick a Dees, Nuthatches, Woodpeckers, Crows and a Starling or two. It must be tough on them when the weather is this cold.
I would love to be the type of person who could chatter on about my days but really nothing much happens on a daily basis. I suppose that's good in some respects and life certainly isn't boring, but it's much the same day after day particularly this time of year. Ah well, with spring and summer on the way there will be much more to talk about.....she says with hope.
