Photo of the Week
Something New was the theme for this week and these were two of my Christmas gifts. Red Shoes from my daughter and her family, warm lightweight wool scarf from my son and his family. Both of which I am thrilled with! I've developed an obsession with red shoes lately and these are the brightest red shoes I've ever had, I love them! Won't they look great for spring?
I thought the scarf was lovely and decorative, but I had no idea how warm it would be. Our heat pump is having a difficult time keeping our house warm during this extreme weather we're having so I wore this scarf under a heavy sweater all day long yesterday and was warm as toast!
Now this is one of my frequent backyard visitors. On these cold snowy mornings he brings his whole family to breakfast on the birdseed I scatter. I've put up squirrel baffles so they can't get to the feeders, but I scatter plenty on the ground for the squirrels and the birds who ground feed. I love watching them vie for spaces at the "table".
