What a wondrous treat to wake and find a sunny, clear blue sky this morning, especially after yesterday's most unwelcome blast of wintry winds and hints of snow yet again. What funny weather we're having!
But it was my little pair of tree swallows and the rose finches I was concerned about. Sparrows and chickadees are quite used to our frosty weather, but I wondered how much our feathered friends from warmer climes can handle when they arrive and find temperatures still dipping below freezing.
Ahhhh.... I just heard the finches arrive in the garden for breakfast. I peek out my study window and there they are at the feeders. So all seems well.
I have a 'free' day today. No chores or errands or jobs pressing at my heels this morning. That feels like being on an unexpected holiday. So Hubby and I are heading off to our favourite coffee spot, where we shall relax in a sunny window, sip our favourite lattes, and enjoy the fragrant cheerful ambiance along with other patrons.
So I wish you a pleasant day! May your day hold many unexpected pockets of joy-filled moments for you, no matter what else is going on in your life.
