the birds

A hood ornament from one of the cars on the New Year's day run.  It was a nice drive, but I did not get to see much of it.  Have to navigate, and read the instructions.  I enjoyed this one more than I have for a long time.  There was a good turn out.
This is a robin that has been in our backyard for a few weeks now.  It is bigger than most robins and chasing them all away.  It has splotches of white all over it, as though it has been accidentally into white paint.  There are many other birds in the back garden as Andy is feeding them. Juncos, sparrows, titmouses, alaska robins, towhees, little downey woodpeckers, finches.
While out on my walk today to the lottery ticket store, it began to snow lightly.  Now we have a skiff of snow on the ground.  We have been having light freezing over nite and up to 6 or 8 during the day, with some rain and some sun.  Its been a good start to this year.
I have been doing a lot of cooking lately, it seems.  The roast beef turned out very good tonite.  Tomorrow for lunch he suggested crepes with apple sauce and blueberry chutney.  Well.. aren't we grand?  Its going to be yummy.
