Day 78 - 18th March 2017 - Lichen, Goldfinches and Red Breasted Nuthatch

One thing I miss since we've had the time change is morning coming earlier. Truthfully "lighter" evenings don't mean a thing to me this time of year. Seriously who is going to work out in their yards, etc. these days after supper? Patience is a virtue and if I wait another month daylight will be coming a little earlier. I guess I'm just tired of getting up to dark skies even when they are filled with stars sometimes.  We had a good afternoon out on Friday, not that we do much, it's nice to run a few errands and go  for lunch. I don't mind being home during the winter months but I enjoy escaping for a few hours. It was Friday Night Club last evening and we celebrating a birthday in our bunch with cake.  The diabetics, which number half of us were certainly smiling, although once in a while won't hurt. I'm learning to give once in a while when it comes to Larry's diet. So it's Saturday which means grocery shopping somewhere - Barrington? Shelburne? one store or two? Guess we'll decide when we start down the road. Storm on the way for Sunday into Monday - snow and then rain - perhaps this is Sheila's Brush!

The Lichen on the side of the trees cups the snow.

Enjoy your day!
