Good morning and welcome to the first Sunday of the New Year! Well, it is still cold, but tomorrow should be a bit nicer before heading back to the deep freeze again on Tuesday. But at least we get one day’s reprieve from the cold so that is nice. You may have noticed I did not get the first chapter of my newest mystery story out yesterday. It was just one of those days where things were not working out the way they should. Therefore some extra things had to be done and that left me no time to get it out. Sigh. Not a good start to the New Year or the new series.
So I guess we will go back to the normal schedule and start the new story tomorrow. Although I could do it this afternoon, but I doubt that will work out. It was exceptionally cold yesterday, it really was. So the birds were exceptionally busy. And they certainly ate a lot of food. I did not see any of the squirrels yesterday, I guess they decided to stay closer to home. Or they are scared of the new dog that lives here with that new tenant in the house. He is a huge dog. And he runs around the yard chasing the squirrels whenever he sees them.
It was too cold to stay out with my birds yesterday, though I did try a couple of times. But I did not last long. Being outside is the only time I can see the birds now, my windows are frosted up completely. Usually I seal the windows which keeps them clear, but I could not get the right stuff this year. So I tried a different product which was supposed to do the same thing. It did not work. And I do not think it will come off easily in the spring like the other stuff did. Oh well.
Too late now to do anything about it. Muffin is not happy though. She liked looking out that one window at night, now it is impossible, though she keeps trying. She still has the bedroom window which is the only one that does not get frosted, but there is nothing to see out that window at night I guess. These bright and cheery flowers are just the thing for a cold day. Have a great day everyone and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
