Taking care of our feathered friends

It has been a cold chore for HH to get out during the first day of the snow, so on Monday he was out replenishing and rearranging all the bird feeders.
He laughed at me when I asked him to hang a red bow up for the feeding site.
It blew down doing the mini blizzard we had and when I looked out Monday he had even replaced the red bow.
He's a big teddy bear.

At least he can fill up the feeders in the garage.
He will NOT wear gloves.

This man will not wear gloves.
He says he cannot do anything with them on.
Nothing is going to stand in his way of getting the bird feeders full.
The snow had begun to melt away when we got hit again.


I love this shot of the doves all huddled on the bench.
They almost look like some furry animal.

We get so much pleasure out of watching the birds out our kitchen window.

Since I put all my arts and crafts items where they belong my kitchen table is so neat and looks so good.
But when I pull everything out I have a bad habit of not putting things away.
Well I said I was not going to make a New Year's resolution but:
I resolve to put my arts and crafts items away each day and keep my kitchen table neat and tidy.
We will see how long that lasts.
Some days my projects take a day or two to dry and I like to leave things exactly where they are til they are finished. 
Some times I have more than one going on.
I think I have heard that before.


Since we don't go out on New Year's Eve anymore
I tried to find an old New Year's Eve photo for my header.
It was so much fun to get to celebrate the New Year's Eve celebration with our children.

Those men.....have to be so macho! But isn't it nice to have them around to take care of us! Happy New Year!

It doesn't matter how often I clean my dining table off. Once I decide to start working on something, it winds up a chaotic mess all over again. Those birdies are so sweet all huddled up like that. I would definitely need gloves for the cold. My hands get really dry because I am always washing and cleaning. Friends have told me to wear the plastic gloves but I just can't do it, so I can understand why your hubby would not want to wear gloves. They just get in the way. Stay warm and cozy inside. Best wishes, Tammy

Happy New Year.

Happy new year to you too QMM! May I suggest you leave everything out for Creative Tuesday though? Hee.

wishing you and a great new year with your dear hubs. he is a good sort, isn't he? Aww about doing the bow! cute. BTw, i quite agree about not wearing gloves as he stated. :)

He is a good guy to put that bow back up for you. Perhaps you can find him some flip top mittens that expose fingerless gloves. Eddie Bauer had a nice pair that I bought my father in law.

Awwwww, those doves on the bench look like they need a warm, warm cuddle! No winter gloves for me either when I'm working on something. Have a wonderful blessed New Year! God bless!

Happy New Year QMM!

Up thisaway, I find I like to wear gloves, but they are often on again and off again when I am trying to do things. That is a good photo of the doves.
