Ice ~ Football ~ Soup

 Good 28º morning. Burrrr......   Everything is frozen out there...

I shook the hummer feeders to make sure they were still liquid. Close to being frozen!

Yesterday was just a "stay at home" day and I had a number of phone calls, one of which I never got to finish... will call Candy back today!

 Brian and Tucker came by. They were on their way for some bowling in Medford..

 They were ready for the game later.
Speaking of which, two awesome games yesterday...
The Saints vs the Seahawks... Saints losing 36-41. What a game!!
Sadly for Brian and Tucker's Colts, they lost 16-17 (!!) to Kristen's Jets. Now the Jets will play my Patriots next Sunday in Foxborough.

The shooting of the Congresswoman and federal judge and that little 9 year old girl in Tucson yesterday certainly stunned all of us. As one of the newscasters said, "Sane people don't do things like this. He's a wakko." So sad for the families. I hope Congresswoman Giffords makes a full recovery. Docs said it would be long and difficult.

So, the sun miraculously came out about 1pm ...

(see.... shadows!)

and at 3:30 we still had sky....

by 5pm there was still blue up there....

and there were still tiny patches of snow on the mountain...

Quiet evening... soup and a snuggy fire....
