It's pretty doggone cold here in Indiana but the sun is shining for all it's worth!!! I have a door that faces East and when the sun is shining and bright it will heat the outer glass door and it feels like you've opened an oven and waves of heat are rolling out. I stand there so often in the mornings during the Winter and let the sun bathe me. It seems to soothe those periods in my life when I'm in a contemplative mode, or perhaps somewhat down or worried about something. As the sun moves higher in the sky I slowly begin to close my door and finally, the door is shut completely.
I filled my bird feeders again yesterday and it didn't take long for the Tufted Titmouse and Downy Woodpeckers to realize the feeders were full again. Those are amazing little boogers!!! They will spread the word and soon the feeders will be covered in Dark-Eyed Juncos, Blue Jays, Goldfinches of all types, Cardinals and birds of all sorts. I can sit at my dining room table and look out and watch them flit around filling their bellies and carrying the seed back to wherever they go. It's such a joy!
I'm writing my blog this morning. I usually do it in the afternoon or evening but I know things are going to be crammed full today. Tomorrow is Sunday so the next time I write it will be Christmas Eve. Christmas Eve is full of magnificent memories for me - I hope it's full of wonderful memories for you. Talk to you later!!
