the difference a day makes


Four inches of snow fell here today.
Our 'bird treat' was very busy. I tried to take photos, but a combination of shooting through window and plastic, and skittish birds made for very blurry pictures. But you can make your own bird treat and watch your own birds... that's almost as fun...

1 cup almond butter
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup birdseed
1/2 apple, peeled, cored, and minced
1/2 cup raisins minced

Mix it all together and form into a ball. Shove it into a mesh produce bag, and hang up for the birds. Try to put it somewhere that squirrels can't get to, as they'll devour it in seconds.
