Good snowy morning to y’all – 10:51 a.m., it's 29.8 degrees here this morning (Dec. 27); the wind is blowing and the snow is coming down hard. The birds are very busy at the feeders and some are hiding in the hedges.
Weatherman says this is gonna be our biggest storm for the year. Well the outdoor sportsmen will be happy, they will be out there snowmobiling, skiing, snowboarding and whatever else they do.
Condolences to the families of Roland Beaudoin, Marilyn E. Brown, and Irving W. Brown. Thoughts and prayers to each family.
Get well wishes are going out to Betty J. Davis, Louise Wilford, Lottie Packard, Jack Allen, Norm and Betty D., Gladys Lee and to all who are not quite feeling up to par these days. I was so glad to hear that Joyce Hathaway is feeling much better after her bout with pneumonia.
Christmas day was awsum, starting out spending time together, then joining in with all that attended the church dinner at the Congregational Church in town. Later in the day we joined our son Craig and his fiancee April and all the grandchildren for time together and opening gifts.
We spent Monday evening visiting with my niece Myra and Randy in their new home in Waterford. A special thanks to them for the bird feeder they gave us. This will be hung with all the other bird feeders we have out on the property. Bird watching is one of my favorite hobbies; I so love watching them throughout the year and feeding them and looking up the species of them and their habitat features.
Christmas decorations all down and taken care of, now to file all the addresses from all the cards we received this year.
Found another new scarf pattern (unisex), so am working on one now – I love the newer patterns I have never seen before. My list for next year is already in the making and I know most of the colors the gals like, so on stormy days or bad traveling days one will find me sitting here enjoying my many birds and crocheting gifts for next year.
A Country Sunday will be held on Jan. 13 at the Litchfield Sportsman Club from 12 to 5 p.m.
I just spotted a bright red Cardinal in the feeder; he was doing his best to stay in it as the wind is really blowing here right now.
Generator already to go if we lose the power. Snow blower ready to go as soon as the snow starts to let up a little.
I’m about to put together a tomato bisque for supper, I like to let it set up after it’s made so all the flavors can set up together then I’ll bake off a batch of biscuits to go with it – it will be good on a cold, snowy night.
Well, that’s all from the valley this week. Stay safe and well.
We here are wishing each of you a Very Happy New Year for 2013 and wish for many great things for each of you.
