    I forgot to say my elm tree was dying of emerald borers and I had to have it taken down a week ago. I mourn that big tree. Now only have one tree left: a black walnut. I did save some of the wood for a fire ring if the winds die down. It is wet wood, some of it, so maybe not for this year. I saved brush for fires and rocket stove ... if the wind calms itself. Too cold to plant a tomato plant yet.

    I took a side view photo of myself and my rolls. This I want to be before photo, as it is distressing to see. I put a tight outfit so all can be seen. It has not really helped me cut down extra calories. But I did take a walk when it was only 32 F outside, so maybe it was just stircraziness. I have a sore toe on left foot, a hammertoe, which is being a problem. It is a little better but it is the last thing a walker needs. It looks like you are plenty busy these days.

    We are being advised here by a Raptor Education group to provide for the birds. This group is located about two hours from here and I think people in my town are already doing so. I went to Fleet Farm to buy more bird food and saw lots of other people buying too. We had to be happy with what we could get because the shelves were getting bare. I wanted to buy some mealy worms for the robins but there were none.

    Later, I learned from Facebook (it is helpful once in awhile) that the country store in town was giving away bags of bird food so people would put seed out. They are good people there.

    My favorite story is the squirrel. I threw some bird seed onto the snow, under the feeders for those who don't perch. Guess who was eating it? Then I notice the squirrel in the spot on the deck where I leave peanuts. Mind you, he has had to dig through at least 18 inches of snow but he had and was looking for peanuts. Didn't he notice I had put some out by the suet cakes. Too funny.

    I saw someone on FB had posted a mourning dove with her baby in their nest. This is someone I trust (a vet tech) so I guess we do have a nestling. I think it is rare though at this time of year.

    Things should be looking better by the end of the week after a few days in the 50s. We have to endure one more snowfall before then. Tomorrow we are expecting some, probably no more than an inch here.

    Me too, I had a housemate with a Rottweiler once years ago and was so surprised to discover how lovable it was. I used to sneak him out for walks when they weren't home.
