Dress In Layers


Mrs. Finch has her feathers puffed out to keep herself warm today!
It was a chilly 17 F degrees this morning!
A little wind, a little snow, but some bright sunshine on 
this lovely autumn Sunday.

  3. I think the birds publicize your place much as the cats do!

  4. What a darling Mrs. Finch in her fashionable puffed coat. I think I could sit at your window all day long. But tomorrow is "Countdown" to Thanksgiving, so I won't be doing much sitting. How about you?

    1. I admit to looking out the window way too much! haha. Maybe that's how I learned to multi-task. ha.

      Oh yes...it is the countdown! I have my list and my schedule mapped out for the week. It's a whirlwind of activity beginning bright and early Monday morning!

  9. Pretty little bird.
    A blustery wind has been howling since yesterday. Our windchill right now is 7 degrees and it is suddenly winter!
    I finally got my Thanksgiving turkey this afternoon, last day of the sale, and it's still in the back of my van. It's just like keeping it in the freezer, which is full of green chile and has no room for turkey.

    1. That reminds me of when I worked full time. In the winter I would do my weekly grocery shopping on my lunch hour. I could leave it all in the trunk of my car and the frozen stuff would stay frozen! I didn't even think to check the wind chill, but I'm sure it's frigid. Brrr.

  20. It is not that cold here but it is cold enough. My plan is to just stay inside and not worry about layers.
