Eagles ~ Earrings ~ Grilled Cheese

Good 24º morning. Burrrrr........
Everything iced up.
Yesterday was a beautiful day. Lots of sunshine and more predicted for today, before the rain starts again....
The turkeys, some toms, were acting weird. Laying down! They'd peck at the ground, fluff their feathers, and just lay there!

Clouds rolled in last night (8pm) and we had another snuggy fire.
The light down there is in Cindy's greenhouse. No clouds this morning so far.
Yesterday was a 'puttering' day. I cleaned off the front porch, vacuumed, and made earrings. I ordered some beads for Christmas earrings I'm going to make. They will look like this..
I'll make them in white and green. Dinner was reruns. Not much exciting....
We watched the eagles and eaglets yesterday...

So, this morning mom left the nest. Dad must be close by and watching...
I'm sure the babies are apprehensive.

Nuff said. Ciao.
