Coffee For Thursday. #28

Good morning everyone! It was cold out there again this morning, with a temperature of 7F (-14C), and windy, though not like yesterday at least. I went out while it was still basically dark. I needed to turn the deck light on to see. While I was out there, little Chipper the chickadee came bouncing through the air and landed on one of the feeders, grabbing a seed and off he went to the shrub where most of the chickadees go to eat his sunflower seed.

I still think he sleeps somewhere fairly close, and when he sees the light come on, then he comes over for his breakfast. At least that is my theory. It happens nearly all the time. The evening grosbeaks were here earlier this morning, but they only stayed a few minutes and left. They have not been back since. Very strange birds this winter. It is just not normal for them to do that.

Before I forget, the pictures I am using these days are older ones, not ones from this winter. I have not been able to get new pictures for a while, so I am counting on older ones that I have not used before. At least for a while. Hopefully I can start getting some recent pictures again soon. However, the birds look the same anyway. I hope you will still enjoy them. I just did not want you to think they were all recent photos.

Well, it is garbage day once again. So, I get my trash can, except it is frozen into the snow. I finally get it loose and get my garbage into it. Now the wheels on the trash can are frozen, they will not turn at all. Now I have to drag it, through that 6 inches of new snow we have received this week. I finally got it and my recycle box out by the street. That was worse than I thought it would be. But at least it is done.

Oh look, the grosbeaks have returned. They are noisily chattering while they eat. I wonder what they are talking about? Probably the weather. And maybe the food. That wind has gotten a lot stronger out there. I made some new suet cakes for the birds yesterday and they are enjoying them this morning. Amazing how fast they are eating that stuff now that the weather is colder.

I am getting a little bit behind on my “to do” list right now. I make a new list each month to make sure I get certain things done on a regular basis. It works very well for me. But right now I have a few more ‘major’ items to get done. That is where things are getting behind. I need to get busy at that, I would like these things done by the end of the year. And that is getting remarkably close. So, Happy December everyone and God bless!
