... to Spring, I mean
Yesterday morning we woke to 3-4 inches of snow -- the highest measurable snow in 5 years. At least it's not on an inch of ice like the last snowfall! I can admire and appreciate it since we had no reason to be out and about.
We were forewarned and had time to get the weekly shopping done Wednesday. And I was able to make it to handbell practice later that afternoon. Even left my car on the street because I was scheduled to make dinner for Room in the Inn (Nashville's program for the homeless) Friday night at our church.

Regrettably the church had to cancel for the second time this season (November through March) because we depend on volunteer drivers to go pick the men up at the Mission campus. So I will make some BBQ with the pork I roasted Wednesday and freeze what we don't eat tonight.
There was a land office business at the bird feeder yesterday. See the line of seeds stuck near the top?
That was how high it was in the morning. By mid-afternoon it was at the midpoint. By sundown it was empty.
The usual suspects showed up -- Chickadees, Juncos, Titmice, Nuthatches, Finches, Sparrows, Downy Woodpeckers, and a lone Red-Bellied Woodpecker. I love the way she uses her short tail to balance.
The funniest was a lone Mourning Dove who shook the snow off its foot with each step in the snow. The Gold Finches are already showing their bright yellow plumage.
Feeding the birds is "cheep" entertainment!
Hope y'all stay warm today. Take a moment to pop over to Addictions of a Fabric Addict.
