Isn't this the most cutest card.. I took a picture of it and hope I won't get in trouble putting it here.. I just love chickadees and snowmen.. I love the carrot and seeing the big flakes of snow coming down.. Winter is such a magical time... It's just right around the corner here in Iowa... IT's 41 degrees this morning and we are suppose to get a chance of rain today.. 
Getting ready to go to school to volunteer with the 2nd graders.. 23 in the class.. Big class.. I go on Tuesdays and Fridays.. The kids are now used to me being there and when I arrive I can hear them whisper ~ Anne is here, always makes me smile.. 
     Last night while watching the World Series while knitting a pair of slippers for my daughter and son in law ~ I was able to get one slipper completed because the St. Louis Cardinals weren't doing so well.. Dog Gone those boys they should of won last night and the World Series would be won by the Cardinals.. Oh well, off we go to Boston and we get to see our favorite teams play somemore..:)   I decided that today after school I'm going to Marion ,Ia. to buy me some circular needles and when I'm making one slipper I can cast the other slipper onto the needles and make two while I'm making one.. That sounds easy to me..and making two at once would be great.. I know people that do this when making mittens or socks.. I even saw on a knitting website someone making socks one inside the other and making two at the same time.. That would be awesome...~!
        The birds are fed this morning and happy happy.. I saw a Eurasia Morning Dove this morning.. They are not suppose to be in this area.. Sitting next to the Morning Doves that come to my feeder the Eurasia is much much larger... and much lighter grey.. When birds are migrating one can get different birds at their feeders. The white crowned sparrows arrived yesterday.. They are just migrating. I love their bright white stripes next to their heads on either side.. 
         Must get going~~~Have a Tiggeriffic Day~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)

The Chickadee is my favorite bird...thanks for putting this on your blog. It reminded me to take a look at snowmancam.com and see what critters were visiting the birdfeeders there. Hope we get snow this winter here in South Carolina. Enjoying your blog!
