The shoulder pads went missing years ago. It is so big and long I could almost wear it as a dress...almost. I opted for leggings instead of tights but it was terribly cold outside! Speaking of birds...
That was a mixed flock of Snow and Canada geese
The DeSoto Wildlife Refuge was a busy spot last weekend. Everything from Trumpeter Swans to Goldeneyes were on the half frozen water. It was interesting to look carefully at the flocks through a scope-there's more variety out there than it appears at first glance. A few eagles came by as well.
This little fellow is a Nuthatch. You can spot them hopping upside down along a tree.
This little opportunist was sitting beneath the bird feeders helping himself to fallen seeds.

You know Danny's birthday is getting close because I made potted cheese today. Some kids want toys, others want candy. Mine wants potted cheese. I also put together an olive salad with bay leaves, lemon peel, and fennel. Both are simple to do and will keep through Christmas. I have a red cabbage looking at me from the kitchen counter, so I guess I'd better get to pickling it.
