Musings For Monday. #2

Good morning everyone on this cold and frosty Monday! I’m hoping this will be our last very cold day for a while. I will admit that I am ready for a longer break from this cold weather. I’m sure the birds would be in agreement with me on that one. It was cold yesterday too, with a strong wind, which made it feel even worse. The birds were all puffed out but the wind kept blowing their feathers out of place. I kept putting out chopped up peanuts for the smaller birds and they certainly took them quickly. Much less work, which saves on energy, which helps keep them warmer.

A nice summer view down by the river.

But mostly the birds are eating sunflower seeds which gives the birds the warmth and energy they need. And they are certainly eating a lot of seeds these days. The colder the weather, the more food is needed. It is nice to know I am helping out a few of our winter birds. While outside I noticed a red-breasted nuthatch on the suet, so I went over to him and put my face right up close. He came right over to me looking at me while I looked at him. Then he “beeped” twice and went back to eating. We were about 2 inches away from each other. It was so cute to see that.

I need to make some more suet “cakes” for them today. Shopping day today, I wonder if anything will happen. Things so often happen to me at the stores that I just expect it now. Makes things interesting anyway. And it gives me something extra to write about. Like when I wanted to buy some sugar. I picked up the package and the bottom fell open and all the sugar went onto the floor. I just stood there and looked. Then took another package and left. Quickly. I did find an employee and told the person about the mess in that aisle. She was not too happy about the news. But she called someone else to come and clean it up. Maybe she just wasn’t happy that I told her.

Another summer view down at the river.

Oh well, I am finally back home, actually I was back 3 hours ago, but after resting my back for an hour, then it took 2 hours to get my computer back up and running again. But it is working good now which is nice, but it means I am behind in my posting again. So I guess this should be a “good afternoon” post instead! It is a very cold day out there, and windy now too. But the wind is bringing milder air with it, so tomorrow should be much nicer, perhaps as warm as 16F (-9C)! Well, I hope you all have a very nice day and God bless!

    • That’s very true, it all depends when a person reads it, not when I write it. Maybe I should call it my good morning in the afternoon at night post!
      Well, it wasn’t my fault the package was broken! Why do these things happen to me?πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ˜³ I’m just like my dad, things always happened to him too. Amazing.

    • Thank you so very much! I’m glad you were able to enjoy this and laugh a little! I’m always happy when people can laugh at what I write.
      Yes, a lot of sunflower seeds, but the birds eat them up fast! Yes, Muffin stays home and sleeps on her favorite bed while I go shopping. When I get home she wakes up and comes to meet me at the door all excited to see me again.😻😁
