Day 5 - 5th January 2016 - Deck Chairs, Pine Siskin and Purple Finches

Brrr....it's cold out there today. Few snow flurries in the air but the sky is dark and starless. Back to photos, some hemming and a few other things around the house today. Expecting the feeders will be busy with this cold snap.
So I didn't do too bad yesterday - got in my morning walk, and a couple with Lexi throughout the day.  She likes the woods where I can let her off leash and we have to jump over windfalls, etc. It's a great workout! Spent a good portion of the morning in the kitchen doing up stuff for Larry's lunch box so I'd have a few meals ahead in the freezer for those times I'm busy. Caught up on laundry, pulled out some of the photograph collection (that's a bit overwhelming) and researched a new genealogy program which I order since today was the last day it was on sale. And it was back to exercise class last evening - have to work off those boxes of chocolates some how! The feeders were busy with Juncos, a single Song Sparrow (who has taken possession of the Christmas Tree), Chickadees, Goldfinches, Purple Finches, Mourning Doves, Blue Jays and my first Pine Siskin of the season.
 Not a morning to enjoy a deck chair by the lake.
 Ice has gathered.

Enjoy your day!
