Another dreary day today but at least it is mild. The weatherman said on the radio this morning that he doesn't see any snow for the next two weeks Yahoo!
I was standing at the kitchen sink after lunch doing dishes when I looked up and saw a flock of robins in our neighbour's tree. It is just crazy! I haven't seen robins this late here ever.
Then I looked around our yard and noticed so many birds at the feeders. Forget the dishes, where is the camera? I must remember to ask my neighbour what kind of tree is this. Many birds enjoy the berries from it.
The redpolls are back. I love their colouring, something bright in the winter.
You know me and mourning doves. So pretty!
Normally this birdbath is straighter but I think we have a racoon that visits in the night and it tips the birdbaths to drink from them.
Two male cardinals were enjoying the berries. Not to often you see two males together. A female was around too.

Work is just about done on the garage. The mud needs to dry one more day. It is much harder to get it to dry in the cooler weather but we have been running a heater to help it.
This is the scene right now in the garage. Dan, the contractor extraordinaire, (did I spell that right???) is up in the garage attic blowing in the insulation while Chuck feeds the machine.
I am hiding in the house because 1. I am paranoid Chuck is going to get his hand caught in the machine (impossible because the choppy part is way at the bottom) 2. the noise is horrendous and 3. the insulation is flying around and not good to breath in. So here I sit worrying and waiting. The bags behind Chuck are the blocks of insulation.
Chuck wanted me to thank you for all the birthday wishes. You are all so kind. He had an hour long chat with his brother who we haven't heard from in quite awhile and another hour long chat with his cousin Chaya in Connecticut. A good day all around!
