Good 14º morning. YIKES. All three hummer feeders frozen. Brought them in and thawed them for the little guys. It was 24º last night about 8pm when I was talking to Linda in Woodland. She said it was cold there, but not THAT cold. Burrrrr....
Oh look, it's warming up.
By 10:15 yesterday the snow had pretty much melted.
I worked on making birthday/anniversary cards and fought with my printer ALL DAY!! Dang that machine. I guess I'm just going to have to bite the old proverbial bullet and take it to the repair shop and find out what is wrong. It starts printing and half way through, stops. Grrrrr....... So it's the un plug, re plug routine until it finally starts working again. It's not that old, 3 years maybe....
Mr/Mrs (?) Robin was back again...
And my little hummer, not the baby, the guy who "owns" the hummer feeders, was back and buzzing my head while I was taking pictures....
Interesting how the light catches his head and throat and

Yesterday, just when I was contemplating what to fix for dinner with some leftover chicken and Quinoa, the phone rang. It was Patty and Cliff inviting Maggie and I up for cocktails and dinner! Whhooooooo hooooooo. I had a dirty martini and we chatted. Dinner was
We came home 3 hours later, and by then it was time to bring in the brass monkey! Snuggy fire, down comforter, cat on lap, chatted on the phone, and watched some TV then snoooooozzzz time!
Tonight I will be going to the Jackson County Central Committee's Lincoln Day Dinner. My favorite Congressman Greg Walden will be a speaker. Should be fun. Pictures to follow. Remember, at the Ronald Reagan BBQ last September I got to "arrest" Greg and we put him in the hoosegow and folks had to bid on his bail.
