Day 2 - 2nd January 2016 - Ice, Leaves and Twigs - Black and White

Snow is gently falling this morning, it's just started and I don't think will amount to much. Have a few errands in town today including a minimum amount of groceries - just the staples - bread, milk and eggs I hope. I think some birding is in order - not sure what direction we'll take maybe Hemeon's Head or the Lockeport Loop. It's been quite a while since we've been in that direction.
The house is back to normal for another year. Spent yesterday morning packing everything away. It's a long job but I think takes more time to put it out than away. The tree is now by one of the feeders for the birds to use during the upcoming months. It will offer a little extra protection from the weather and our friendly Sharpie. Dinner at Mom and Dad's - very yummy home made Chinese food with a Peach Trifle for dessert. After all the other stuff I've eaten this week maybe I better not visit the scales for a while. The first birds at the feeders yesterday were a Junco and a Song Sparrow. The Sparrow hung around all day, it's been months since I've seen one in the yard. All the regular ones arrived throughout the day - Mourning Doves, Blue Jays, Chickadees, Goldfinches and Purple Finches. The Juncos are now at 2-3 most of the time. No sign of the Evening Grosbeaks in quite a while.
I played around with some black and white photos - ice on a dock.
Crumpled leaf holds it's own against the winter.
Twigs and branches twist and turn.
Unwrapping the log.

Enjoy your day!
