So Hard To Stay Focused

It really is hard to focus after watching our teams send off rally it really is when you are a true fan as many are here in New England. Like our quarterback reminds us the world hates him except us ❤ and it brings him strength.

Now for a subject you all love to hear about SNOW yes more is promised but for us close to the coast our amounts will be so much less than northern areas of our region. Then cold air but not as cold as some of you will deal with I heard -50 F in the Dakotas now I remember those bone chilling temps from when I was trucking it was crazy and we had to keep our trucks running so the fuel would not gel. Brrrrrrr

Ok here are some shots from my yard which is mostly ice and small patches of snow after all the rain we have had.

I took JT for a stroll and will again today while we wait for snow she loves snowballs crazy girl she is 🙂

Art, Photography and Football oh wait and a SNOWSTORM!

Wow today was truly the calm before the storm with snow to begin soon this one just to aggravate the morning commute but then a day tobuy up all the milk and eggs at the store maybe water in case the power goes out on Sunday, when we will receive 1 to 2 FEET of SNOW!

We better not lose power with the call for high winds and so much snow forecast as the whole country, except for New England, praying for the Patriots to be knocked out of the playoffs but my money’s on the 5 time Superbowl Champs led by the GOAT, Tom Terrific I call him. 🙂

Male Bluebird in Epping NH
They love my heated bird bath these pretty Bluebirds

We walked around the yard looking for items that could potentially go through the snowblower and JT sniffed the ground to see who had been in her yard.

For those in the path of this storm stay safe out there have a plan set and stay warm.

Cold Will Continue Till Monday

The cold is worsened by the winds that have been fierce here lately.
Every bird in the forest is here filling up on beef fat and Sunflower seeds and warm water I offer them in a heated birdbath.

I clean the house and take bird counts for Ebird do you do that? I list their numbers for a certain time period and some photos of my visiting species
some I can tell if they are males or females others I can’t.

I have been painting but not 5 a day anymore lol trying new things some are not what I wanted but I have fun anyway. This one I loved but then did not stop now to continue to play just for the sake of play. It is lighter but a bad photo.

I will be giving a free 2 hr class to students during February vacation I asked for the 9-15 year old range maybe I can turn them on to art and fun and keep them off the street 🙂

Winter Has Gone And Reared Her Ugly Head OK Maybe Pretty For some

Yes pretty for those of you not having to SHOVELI IT!  So pretty just to sit and chill looking at folks like me stuck in New England when their hearts are missing the south!

Remember this view?

Welcome to my world today! Just 24 hours later.  The saying here goes “Don’t like the weather, wait a minute!”

Now once again a winter wonderland

Shoveling for the dog and the birds once again.

Messing around while I had my feet up waiting to go out for round 3

The Apple Tree had all kinds of birds on it as the truck or snow thrower or me with my camera spooked them

I am not lying when I say I want YESTERDAY BACK!

Then again I want tomorrow to come too as our very handsome New England Patriots Quarterback will be in Denver to play against Manning.  Sure hope they don’t stop to get high well any higher than the Mile High, at the stadium.  GO PATS!!!!!
