So maybe taking pictures of the birds in the snow makes me look like a little old lady sporting binoculars and khaki shorts, but it is beautiful to see them out there. Haven't seen this assortment of birds since. . .before we got Kitty 12 years ago. I hate having her gone, but this is a nice silver lining.
Just saw a rufous-sided towhee out there - they don't come out too much but will do anything when the food sources are scarce. I've also seen cardinals, Carolina wrens, goldfinches, titmice, Carolina chickadees, white-throated sparrows, and juncoes. They are swarming the feeders that Mike put up last week - just in time!

The first two days of this week were nice and quiet. Then - we had spirit days. "Nerd Day" on Wednesday, "group day" on Thursday (pick anyone, any size group, and dress alike according to a theme of your choice) and school spirit day today. Just try to teach on a Friday afternoon, of the first week back in school after Christmas, after three days of spirit week, with homecoming that night, and the distinct possibility of snow days the first of the week. Absolutely crazy.
For homecoming tonight I had a different role - as the senior class sponsor, I helped with crowning the queen. I actually was only supposed to put the small crowns on the runners-up, but it's a good thing that a second person was up there - Pastor Bartlett couldn't get the crown off the pillow right away as the ribbon was a little stuck. It was interesting being behind the spotlight - that was a new thing to experience.
I really hope Andrew has a good weekend in Ft. Myers.
