birds and saturday
We've had quite a flock of birds at our feeder this year. A family of cardinals, mom and dad and two juvenile males, come regularly. Since Regis has a new camera, he likes taking pictures of them. He gets frustrated with the focus through the front window but I think they're gorgeous. So real you could almost reach out and pet their feathers.
We have a haltered gray cat who comes to the bird feeder. This is not good. I don't know if there is a cat leash law in St. Peter but there should be. Who wants a cat stalking their bird feeder?
Tiffany and Elliot are coming for dinner tonight. We invite the kids for a meal each in the month of December...probably said that before...and this is their day. We're making spaghetti and meatballs (Elliot's favorite meal) with a salad, green beans, and bread. I bought a box of cookies for dessert since I don't bake anymore.
One of the things we do is take a family picture of all of us wearing funny hats. I seem to have a thing for funny hats. I bought three snowman hats when we went to Canby a few weeks ago so there will be photos in funny hats.
Regis has me convinced that we should make one batch of cookies for Christmas Eve. Yeah, maybe. We'll have to ration them out like gold.
We're doing a meatball making marathon today. I'll be sure to let you know how that goes.
