I’ve been mixed up on what day it is for the last two weeks, with the holidays messing up the usual order of work and time off. But I checked the calendar, and it’s time for Random 5 Friday, a great meme run by Nancy of A Rural Journal. Click here to visit Nancy and find more bloggers participating.
|We do get some snow. This is a snow scene from March 2013. This is our backyard, looking towards Larry's shop and shed.|
To all of those caught up in snow and windstorms, I hope you are safe and warm. Our part of Virginia will get flurries or sleet mixed with rain, if anything. The way most weather fronts track in this area, we don’t usually get the big snows.
Since Larry and I both love snow, we’re regularly disappointed at the weather forecasts. My solution for this is to move to Wyoming. Larry doesn’t think so.
As I sit and write this Thursday evening, I have a partner helping me: Chase Bird. He doesn’t usually sit in my lap while I work on the computer, but tonight he is. He’s purring and licking my hand.
Maybe he sensed that I was feeling a bit low this evening and needed the TLC. Maybe he wants to use the Internet once I’m off. Whatever, he’s a welcome partner.
Anyone know what “cvhgds” means? That’s what Chase Bird just typed as he put his paws on the keyboard.
As I drove up the driveway today, I saw a feather swirl in the grass beside the car. I haven’t been taking many photos outside lately, so I went inside and got my camera and came out to explore a bit.
I thought this might be a turkey feather. I’ve seen some wild turkeys in the area. Anyone recognize what it is?
It seems so dark outside in the evenings now that most people have taken down their Christmas lights. Too bad we don’t all leave some lights up through the rest of the winter. Inside, I’m going to keep plenty of candles out.
What do you do to bring in more light during the winter?
