New Year's Eve

I've been pretty busy between Christmas and today.  We had some work to do in the sun room to finish getting everything ready for the really cold weather.  We had new feeders to put out for the birds.  I got caught up on some things that needed doing around the house.  I scanned more photos from the massive hoard from my mother, my dad and from our own years of non-digital imagery.   It's a lot of work. 

I went out to feed the birds this morning and it was 30 degrees and a fine mist was falling.  The water dish for the birds had a thin layer of ice.  The sparrows have discovered the three-tube feeder Marty gave us for Christmas.  It is under the eve of the house so they are a little protected from the mist.  I put out black sunflower seeds in the flat feeder out front and on the ground under the squirrel-proof feeder in back.  The squirrel is currently on the ground out back with the male cardinal waiting for him to leave so he can get to the feeder.  Both cardinals seem to really like the feeder.  I have a seed bell to put out but we didn't get to it before it got too cold.

I did a little embroidery yesterday.  It is harder now that my hands are older and my right hand is a little sore today.  I'm going to keep at it because it is something I enjoy.  I have some counted cross-stitch patterns picked out to do but don't have any of the right kind of cloth.  I'll get to that when the temps get above freezing!  Stan said he isn't going out again until March.  He forgets we live in Texas where we can get 80 degree days in January-perhaps not this week, however.
