When the Going gets Tough, the Tough Take a Nap.
There has been some doubt expressed around here, that it will ever not be winter, that it will always look like that when we look out the window .. Minette and I.
Although she has her own little window obsession going now and I doubt she even cares if it is snowing .... She has BIRDS to look at.
She found out early on that the glass will not let her out, let her pass through or allow her to grab just one bird ...
Those little thumps on the glass that I could hear all the way in here, have stopped.
Well, mostly stopped.
The birds sort of ignore her ... they seem to catch on faster than she does.
I bought bird seed.
I got tired of toasting bread, sharing my cookies and looking for something that would appeal to a Sparrow.
Never mind the Blue Jays who come swooping in like Jumbo Jets next to the little Sparrows .
Today was a new member to the team .. at first I was not sure what I was seeing, just a bit of red in the shrubs .. a Cardinal ! ( the State Bird of North Carolina ... how do I know that ? Guess)
So now I am listening to music that is making me sad, Minette is napping and it is snowing again.
My new pastime is going through Decor magazines and online sites and making note of what I will do in a new home, a new bedroom, a new garden ... and boy do I have plans for the new kitchen .. wherever it might be.
But thanks to the weather, I (and every other house hunter) ... am sitting at home, contemplating baking Chocolate Chip Cookies and wondering if a Nap is really a good idea.
I would ask Minette, but she is taking a nap.
