When did that happen? I was minding my own business going about life as I generally do and I glanced at the calendar and it is clearly marked, "DECEMBER 6TH, 2007"
DECEMBER 6th, 2007 ALREADY?
Umm, where'd November go?
It's been a beautiful Fall here. The leaves were absolutely gorgeous and stayed so for a good long time. Over the past 2 weeks I've noticed the bright yellows and oranges turning to deep reds and now they are brown. Most trees dropped their leaves during the past 2 days with the wind storm that we had. We also got a bit of snow, just enough to cover the ground and make it feel like winter. My girls were so excited about the little bit of snow that they raced to get on their hats, mittens and scarves!
I am sad that the beautiful bold colours of fall have gone, but I am also glad to see the 1st snows of winter and all of the beautiful little birds that come with that 1st wave of cold weather.
Our birdfeeders are stocked full and then, within 2 days, they are empty and in need of filling again. We have lovely little birds that visit every day. We have a pair of Mourning Doves, lots of Black Capped Chickadees, 2 Bluejays and a number of different little finches. I LOVE my quiet mornings with just me and my birdy friends. I sit here gazing out the window at the feeders and and somehow they turn my grumpy mornings into nice, peaceful ones!
