Oh the weather outside is frightful....

Joe our good friend delivers our propane gas to us... So this morning he stopped by and I couldn't resist and took his picture. He is such a happy fellow.. He always come inside and visits us when He comes to our house for a delivery..
Thank goodness I had oatmeal raisin cookies made and a fresh pot of coffee.
He said they were good and it was a great morning snack.. We talked for awhile and off he went back out on the road..
It's snowing like crazy right now and he said "Man if you don't have to go anywhere today ~ stay inside". It's a light snow and it's blowing hard..can't even see the road from my window..

I got his attention and you can see his big smile and a wave... He said get the coffee ready I'm coming inside for a little bit..


The birds are busy at the feeders.. Here are 3 downy woodpeckers lined up to eat on the suet..


Mr. Squirrel was back and he couldn't get the corn lose from the red material that I have the corn fastened to the tree. He really tried before the snow came...he got it turned to the side but not enough muscles to get it lose. Yeah~! Now that the snow is blowing full blast he left and went up in the big pine tree. I can see him eating on the corn that he took couple days ago..
Glad I don't have to work anymore or have to leave the house today to go anywhere.. Oh I'll take that back...I'm picking up Ben at daycare this afternoon.. and I have a few things to take to the Post Office to mail to Illinois. Maybe by then this storm will be done and it will be easier to see down the road. It's white out right now.
Happy Monday to everyone~! ta ta for now from Iowa...

Love the pics. We don't have snow here. Have to drive a couple hours to get into a fun area that's not icy. ;-) The kids love playing and we try to go at least a couple times during the snowy season. Those oatmeal raisin cookies sound good. I think I will get some cookies in the oven today!

Merry Christmas

How nice of you to have cookies and coffee ready for "Santa" the gas man. :)

Love that downy picture!

We used to rent a house that had propane. We were really bad about letting it run out. Whoops! Now we have electric, plus our woodstove. The woodstove is my winter nemesis. I haven't blogged about it yet this year, but I will! Actually, so far we're getting along better this winter than last.
Cute squirrel!

Happy Monday! I hope things clear up before you have to get Ben.

It's always nice to get to know the people that are frequent visitors to your home -- the mail man (or woman), the UPS driver, and the propane delivery man.

No snow here until Thursday, they say. Might make Christmas a bit interesting! :)

Love the pictures. Have been absent for a few days due to the stomach flu but starting to feel like my self again. I love how the downy woodpeckers are lined up and ready to go. Glad to see Joe out and about - he has been a lifelong friend.

Your world is so different to ours - your climate/seasons, your birds, your animals. One thing that is common to both of our worlds is friendly people.

Nice reading your blog and I really like your pictures.
