Today it is 30.2° and overcast.
I don't milk today so DH will tend to morning chores (bless him).
Today To Do List:
Breadmaking Day (my favorite day)
More practice with indoor photos with the camera
Hopefully some good bird shots outside the kitchen window.
Speaking of feeding the birds, a few days ago I asked DH to check the smokehouse (where we keep the feeders stored over summer) for a tube feeder. He reported back that there wasn't one. So, off to Lowe's we went where I bought a feeder. When I saw the copper lid, that rang a bell but I ignored it. Got home; put it up and in a couple of days the canaries found it.
Yesterday I had to get something from the smokehouse (see I have already forgotten what) and there just inside the door hanging on a nail was the new tube feeder from last year! It is much heavier and more decorative than the one just bought. I have no idea what he was looking for when he ignored this!
I think it is sturdy enough that we retired the squirrel chewed one on the Elm tree and replaced it with the 'found' one.
It is downright scary!
Nell,of Secrets 0f A Seed Scatterer's Blog posted a picture of a Pileated Woodpecker, another thing our areas have in common. I took this picture a couple of years ago in our front yard. It was working happily away on our bug infested Elm tree.
