Bird Butt to Bird Butt
I woke this morning to this view from my dressing room window…
Brrr, it's cold outside…
I went to the kitchen where R.H. had sausages and fried potatoes
keeping warm in the oven.
He had already fed the birds once and was ready to again.
He said they were "bird butt to bird butt."
We ate R.H.'s good breakfast and looked out at the welcome sunshine,
R.H. using the zoom lens to capture our visitors...
The sun disappeared for a while but the birds stayed.
And other guests stayed at R.H.'s smorgasbord…
I'll stay too, but inside where it's cozy and warm.
I won't think today about the -3 degrees predicted for tomorrow night.
"I feel so completely content on a snowy day.
My home, my family, life itself, even me, all is perfect--
all is safe from harm.
Nothing has been.
Nothing will be.
Just the present,
bounded by the peace and the hush of the snow."
Agnes Sligh Turnbull
What I will think about is family,
praying for all of them everywhere to stay safe and stay warm
and be happy.
Nora may not be warm in this picture her daddy sent me yesterday,
but she is one happy little girl, isn't she?
Be safe everyone, stay warm and be happy.
