There is an apparent lack of snow in my new location. I'm not sure how much I like it yet. I'll get used to it, I'm sure. Once I have a job and realize that I don't need to shovel my way out of the driveway twice a week or start my car at least 15 minutes before leaving, I know I'll appreciate it. Snow sure does make things look awfully pretty though.
The feeder has been crowded with birds lately and I've enjoyed watching them coming and going, darting back and forth to eat the sunflower seeds. Once in a while a Downy Woodpecker will stop by for a few seconds and sometimes I can hear a Nuthatch tapping it's beak on the roof storing a seed under the shingles. I think I like watching the Cardinals the best. They are so beautiful!
Here is a bit of festive fun! My husband and I built a gingerbread house. We were "discussing" if we should decorate it then set it up, or set it up first and then decorate. We ended up setting it up first just to have the extra challenge of trying to decorate without knocking anything over. He mostly set up the walls and I mostly made it look pretty. It was definitely a team effort.
