Today was a perfect day to catch up on my email, yet I was drawn outside…the beautiful snow was supposed to change to freezing rain in the afternoon; I wanted to get out there before it got ugly.
We bundled up and headed outside. The first thing we did was brush off the cars, then we shook down the bushes and shoveled the front walkway. Now we had enough snow in an area to build a whopper of a snow-frog. Not your usual winter decoration, but typical for my yard – I have a frog downspout on one of my gutters and a frog welcome sign in the front garden. 🙂
After a few pics, we headed to the backyard. One look at the deck and we agreed…it was beautiful and didn’t need clearing off! However, we did add some bird seed to the feeders and set out some ground feeders: the dark-eyed juncos, house finches, and pigeons were scrounging everywhere.
Less than an hour and a half later, I am back inside, with a warm coffee mug to begin answering email while the sleet patters against the window. Sometimes it’s good to flip the day and play first!
