Woke up this morning to 5 inches of beautiful snow...If I was still working I would of been at the school at 4 in the morning, shoveling off the walks. I was a head custodian and that was one of my jobs.. After I retired the school bought a walk behind snow blower... Imagine that~! It's like our kids mowed the grass for up teen years here on the farm with a push mower.. They all grew up and it was just Dave and I.. Yep~! you are right Dave went out and bought a riding lawn tractor... Took several pictures through the window that is right outside my computer room. I have 6 pairs of Cardinals.. They are so bright red with the snow in the background.. I love spring this bird tells us how pretty he is: pretty bird pretty bird he chirps to his mate. Now all he does is look at her and eats and eats and eats. I love wild birds they are a wonderful treat to look at right outside ones window..


Don't need any Christmas decorations on this tree.. These Cardinals is all you need.. Aren't they pretty.. They were here all day feasting on black oil sunflower seed, field corn and I cut up a suet block and mixed it in the seed on the platform.





Here's the Cardinals, Morning Doves, junco's, gold finches. The woodpeckers were here also, all 8 of them . I made up some special peanut butter/corn meal/lard, suet for them..
Yum Yum~! It was just fun today to sit here and watch them all come and go.. Mr. Red Tailed Hawk must of been busy somewhere else today. Didn't see him..
Won't be seeing Ben until Sunday evening. He is with his Dad. I miss him when he is not at Tracie's.. Called his Dad this evening and asked how Ben was doing.. Cory said he had a great day~! took a 2 hour nap.
Have enjoyed just reading all the blogs today...One of my blog friends took a video with her this morning and filmed driving her dog to the vets this morning. It was snowing big time and it looked really slippery.. She lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Look on You Tube: Snow Drive Dec.16,2010 it was made by deedah1..
She also had another funny one on You Tube: It's a Jolly Holi-dog Celebrations made by Best Friends Videos.. I laughed so hard at this one.. It's a good one to watch over and over.
Have a great evening...Tomorrow is Friday and it's going to be a sunny day.. I will be outside sh0veling the cement pad in front of the garage.. Hopefully the boys across the road will come and push out the snow in our driveway with their tractor /snow blade.
Ta Ta For Now from Iowa...15 degrees and it was a wonderful day~! I love the snow...
