Perfect Peaceful Sunday

Today was a beautiful winter day in Wisconsin. The snow was sticking to the trees which makes for a really beautiful winter scene. The temps were fairly mild also. I hope you can see how pretty it is from this photo--this is of our backyard.
Here is my little feathered friends catching an afternoon drink and even some are bathing. This electric water heater is to keep their water from freezing. Last winter it barely got used. This season its full thruout the day. Its really neat watching the birds come and play. It drives the cat nuts but for us, its enjoyable. I felt really bad for them so i actually went out there and scooped all the water out and then poured nice lukewarm water so if they wanted to clean themselves they could. Baldyman thought I was alittle odd but hey, thats how we women are.

I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend, we sure did. Got alot of deep cleaning done, organizing and just enjoying the house. We are still in the process of decluttering and its coming along. Its amazing how much stuff you accumulate and then you find out you really dont need anymore. I found a bag of sewing that was bittersweet. When I took it out I realized it had been for a shirt I was in the process of making one of my twins, now they are moved out. I told Baldyman thats what happens when a woman works full time outside the home, things just get put aside. I'm still on a mission to find the perfect part time job--and then also promote my body products and candles...that remains a strong goal for this year. I so miss sewing and doing some of the things I like to do. I just dont have the time anymore. Anyhow, I'm off to visit some of you!
