The snow…it fascinates. Somewhere in Alaska, people are laughing at me.

The back deck on the farmhouse.

Front porch. A very confused cardinal was dazzled by the lights and flew back and forth under the roof of the porch. We turned the lights off so the poor critter could get some sleep. They nest in that big bush you see there. It is very pretty to see these bright red birds in the snow. I keep trying to catch one on camera.

I’ve got a brutal headache today and may just go back to bed. Spent all weekend baking and don’t want to be surly when the family starts showing up…assuming they can get down the drive. 24 inches of snow to clear over a 1/4 mile stretch. Hoo boy.
