I am sitting at the kitchen table thinking about a blog post. It's long overdue. We had some snow overnight. Just enough to make everything white again. The snow from earlier in December had just about disappeared. What's nice about this morning is we had time to leisurely drink our coffee together. Mike has been posted at the back door watching with his camera to capture some of the pretty birds that have been showing up at our feeders.
This male cardinal and his female partner are frequent visitors. They are so pretty, especially against the snow.
This handsome boy is harder to photograph, he doesn't hang around long. I actually got this shot.
Last Saturday we were at lock and dam 14 on the Mississippi River doing some eagle watching. They show up near us every winter during January and February. They are such majestic birds.
You can actually get quite close to them. They seem to be used to the gawkers.
Mike got an action shot of this one catching his fish out of the river. Pretty cool.
Mike is actually in the garage right now cutting a picture frame for me. I have a stash of frames that I've acquired from various places. He is taking one of them apart and recutting it to fit this
I stitched this 'Winter' piece by Cricket probably a couple of years ago, and its been languishing in my drawer of pieces needing frames. Maybe I will be lucky enough to get it finally framed this month....
I also pulled out these beauties.
Winter by Prairie Schooler.
And February also by Prairie Schooler. I have stitched some of the monthly pieces from them but not all by any means.
Mike just came in half frozen from the garage. Had to come in for coffee and to warm up his hands.
Well, hope you are enjoying your Sunday. We will see what the rest of today brings around here. I have promised the family fried chicken for dinner. So I will be cooking dinner later on.
