So I am sure I will be shot, since I'm so late getting finished up here today. But it's been busy day or the day just got away from me not sure which! Yes I did some baking - 9 1/2 dozen mini red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing and cinnamon hearts. My Mom always made us a valentine cake or cookies. I'm remembering a heart shaped layer cake - chocolate with boiled icing [or that maybe wishful thinking about the boiled icing]. Cookies would have been heart shaped as well either a shortbread or sugar cookie variety and always with frosting. Ummmm, I think the frosting is always the best part of a cookie! I went to town and did what I needed to do there, packed, went for a walk, and thank goodness it was a night of leftovers for supper.
It snowed most of the day here and everything is covered in white once again and the temperature has been much colder today then what we've been used to, but I hear tomorrow will be milder once again.
Looking up the river, trees are dipped in snow.
I caught the little chickadee hiding in the feed grabbing a bite to eat. Being cold today, it was nice he could find a feeder.
The Junco finds his seeds under the feeder on the ground. Next to him is the leftover Christmas tree which offers shelter and a wind break for the birds.
My footsteps along the road, with my toasty warm green rubber boots with felt liners (and mom's hand knit wool socks) I shuffle along, my heels and toe prints connect. Not exactly what you call a brisk walk.
So we have gone through another Monday, time to put my feet up, watch Coronation Street and chill for a bit. Enjoy your evening.
