Mr. Bluebird finds the birdbath is more like a miniature ice-skating rink....
Well, 2010 is already a week old and this is my first post of the year.... I'm not doing so well in the blog department lately! I had several new pictures I wanted to share, but this past week the weather has made sure that all I get done is break ice out of everybody's waterers. It hasn't been above freezing here in 7 days now, and for those of you who are used to this kind of weather, you have my upmost respect. (And deep sympathy.) Snow fell last night, and the temperature is not going to be above freezing for 2 more days, according to the weather people. Looks like I (and my water buckets) will still have to make the rounds every couple of hours to make sure all the chickies and sheepies have something to drink.
*Sigh*.... I wonder sometimes if my animals know how much I love them......
Meanwhile, it's a toasty 74 in the house right now, but we are going through firewood like crazy- we've kept a fire in the stove for a solid week now. It gets messy carrying wood inside, but it's such a blessing knowing our heat pump hasn't been on in over a week. Sure will help on the electric bill!
My friend Amy from A View From my Backyard is now the adoptive momma of a pair of my baby Silkies! I hated to see them go, *sniff sniff* but I know they're going to a good home. I can't wait to see what she names them.
And Rowdy is growing like a weed.... but looks like he's going to be a momma's boy for a while, doesn't it?
Short post today- but now I'm off to visit with you!
