Totally Distracted on Tuesday
Cold and cloudy here, chance of snow? Feels like snow and the wind nearly blew me back down my hill on my walk up it this morning...well, more like a slope to most people but I like to say it's a hill since there doesn't seem to be any for miles. I had to wear my hat and put my hood up with my mittened hands covering my ears and with tears freezing on my face, I finally made it...all the distractions made me forget how cold that wind was getting or that it might snow. I walked passed a familiar house that usually has a few squirrels looking for a snack but today, you could just tell, these little guys were serious about getting their share. They were not busy chasing or chattering at each other, all were eating together peacefully. Then I walked close to a nearby pond and noticed this birdhouse. I thought that post was different, not the usual. Then I got close to home again and noticed all the little birds that Emily likes to watch...all huddled together on this truck. Definitely, a hot chocolate sort of day.
