Mostly an Inside Day

Yes, I know, I said I would stop complaining about the weather in Texas, but sheesh, we don't like this cold wind. I ventured out to walk the dogs this morning, and we were all bundled up, including the dogs. We didn't spend much time outside today.

I worked on some sewing projects, which took most of the morning. Jim made his daily trip to Walmart.

We watched the wildlife, including this little fellow who has adopted our motor home as his perch:

Later this afternoon, Karon came by to see if I'd like to ride along with her to check their mail and make a quick stop at - you guessed it - Walmart. I said sure, so we started to leave. When we went outside, "One Horn" was waiting around, looking for his handout. Karon encouraged me to see if he'd come up to me, since he sure doesn't act afraid of us.


I threw a few kernels of corn out for him, and then held the dish out and stood still, and here he came:



After we got back from Walmart, I practiced Guitar Hero for a while and then fixed dinner.

Even cold, windy days like this are good days.

Just remember if you don't like the weather in Texas, just wait until tomorrow, it will be something different!

The deer are so sweet!

I think the bird is a pyrrhuloxia but it's pretty rare in that part of Texas.

Brrrrr, we are cold here in Dallas too! The wind is just awful. Looks like we are in for a nice warm, but windy weekend and then another temp drop. If we didn't have business to take care of here, we'd be gone!
