January Days At Home
A chickadee finally found the feeder this morning weeks after I had given up entirely on having birds this winter. Ordered another feeder from my dad today. He said it would cost me 35 dollars, but I reminded him that I have a birthday coming up sometime this year...:)
Maybe next winter we will get deep snows and have flocks of birds gracing our feeders and windowsill.
Last night we put on two pots of water with rosemary to steam and two electric steamers, as well. From now on the smell/taste of rosemary will be associated with sickness, unfortunately, and should not be used in food we eat. But Elv and Amy both slept better.
Busier, healthier days are ahead. I'm tanking up on the slower pace just now and enjoying the opportunity for together time, despite the coughing. There is a pharmacy littering my kitchen, too , but that will go away as soon as does the flu.
The one extra project that I tackled today was getting all those Christmas family photos hung. No more taping pictures over the entire white board. We'll see how the new fad works.
