Snow Day

Every once in a while, there is enough snow that my library is closed and I don't have to go to work. Today is one of those days. So what have I done with my extra time? A little of this and a little of that and a lot of nothing. It's been a great day.

My Snow Day

It started snowing this morning and is still going. Before it's all done, we should have over 8".

My day began with the determination to get a lot done.  I started with the laundry.

Next, I was going to work on taxes. However, I was distracted by the birds outside.

Ward, who was teleworking today, turned his chair around so he could see out the window

Then we were both distracted by a squirrel on the main bird feeder. This is the first time we've had a squirrel on this feeder since we put up the cone-shaped baffle. I hope this is a fluke of the extra snow height that it had to jump from.

Now back to the taxes. I was almost to the tax papers when I passed by my library book and thought there wouldn't be any harm reading a few pages.

Then Ward called and asked what this crested bird was. I told him it was a tufted titmouse.

Along about now, I was starting to get hungry. I thought I couldn't concentrate properly on the taxes if I were hungry. So after a snack, I made some spinach lasagna.

In the meantime, Ward was tired of sitting and decided to do some shoveling.

It will be dark soon, so I've decided the best use of my time would be a to do a little more bird watching. I'll work on the taxes after the sun goes down.
