I know. . . only days ago I wrote about the first snowfall, but the snow has not stopped since I wrote that post. And it's even colder. And windier. And more blowing snow. And any hope of a reprieve from winter during November is pretty much dashed.
But as I sat on my toasty warm back porch today looking around outside, I saw some pretty neat stuff. See, I think it's important to pay attention to the small stuff . . . the stuff you don't normally give a second thought to. Like this pretty dark eyed junco, resting on the bannister, waiting for its turn at the feeder;
My Gretchen girl eyeing Laci down by the lakeshore...waiting to pounce on her as she comes through the yard; neither of them minding the snow at all;
...and Laci romping through the snow;
...and this pretty cardinal staring down a woodpecker on the feeder;
...and the snow as it falls in the woods in front of my house and thanking my brother-in-law for plowing my driveway;
Yes, it's another cold and blustery day here in Southwest Michigan, but I am once again thankful that I am warm and comfortable inside my lovely home on the lake. But Harry is traveling home from Chicago today and is stuck on a train just outside of K'Zoo. Once he is safely home, I will be even more thankful for this day.
