A few nights ago Chuck turned on our "Starlight Lava Lamp" while we were watching TV. We found this lamp at my Favourite antique store (now closed😢) some years ago. It is from the late 1960's or early 1970's. We keep our home rather cool so it takes a good two hours to heat up and start bubbling. It is fun to watch.
I've noticed on a few blogs some of the other bloggers have taken up a challenge to declutter. I have been meaning to clean out some of my kitchen cupboards so I made a start a couple days ago. This is the contents of a couple shelves. When we moved in 4 months ago I really didn't organize the cupboards as I put things away. We now have a kitchen half the size of our old one so I have to keep this organized.
Can someone tell me why different brands of "spaghetti" take different times to cook? It is just the two of us so I don't cook a whole box of pasta at a time. I end up with a little bit of each brand left. I am too frugal to throw it out!
Here is my main food cupboard after the sorting. I only found a bag of Craisins that were past their best before date. The birds don't mind!
While I was reorganizing I could hear the birds chattering away at the feeders. I looked out and there must have been 30 birds at the feeders. It was a feeding frenzy! I had filled the feeders a couple hours before.
The squirrels were snatching up all the peanuts too.
Then it started ice pelleting. That explains it. I guess the birds felt the pressure changing and were stocking up on food. It only lasted about 10 minutes and was done. Chuck phoned me from work and said it was snowing quite heavily there. Other parts of Ontario were hit quite hard with snow and ice.
Today started out as a beautiful sunny, cold day. We went for a great walk before lunch. It has now clouded over.
Many types of birds enjoy the cones from the tamarack tree. When I took this photo there was around twenty birds in the tree.
Miss Kitty has been enjoying time with us. Isn't she beautiful?
Love the chickadees!
No big plans this weekend. Chuck continues to paint our bedroom and I will finish off decluttering the kitchen.
Enjoy your weekend!
