This year seems to by flying by and February will be over before we know it. I am hoping we have an early spring this year. The freezing, below zero temperatures started January 3, and have not let up. We have had a day or so that it was warmer and not freezing cold. I guess calling 46 degrees warm is stretching it a bit. In the summer if we think about 46 we think that is cold. Nevertheless what ever it is we have to endure it and be happy for another day. I have been doing a lot of wood working and making bunnies too. I enjoy making bunnies and thinking about Easter time. It is a special time of year. The deer number has grown here and it is always a treat to look out the window and see them coming for dinner. There are twelve now. I keep food in their trough and bird seed in the feeders. The one deer who started coming first I call Deary. I did not have the special deer food then so she would tip the bird feeder and lick all the seed out. She is the only one who does that and doesn't eat the deer food now. She is special and I love to watch her. My neighbor Elouise told me she saw Deary come one day and there was no bird seed so she stood for ten minutes and looked right at the house. I must have been away and the birds had emptied the feeder. So now I fill the feeder up late in the evening so she always has plenty. Sad to see them trying to find food when the snow has been on the ground for so long. I also have a one legged crow who comes every day to eat. He is Hoppy. He has a difficult time eating and the other crows try to chase him away. We have been here over two years now and we are almost finished with the changes we have planned to do. We moved my Mother out of the house I grew up in and closer to us last year. She has had a better winter this year and stayed warm and well. I hope you are enjoying a wonderful week and are staying warm. As my Mother would say..."It has been cold, cold, cold, cold, cold!" The degree of cold requires more times said. Have a wonderful day! ~Carol
