Nothing happened today. It snowed, that's about it.

the flock
I went out to RAPTOR to pick up some stuff, and saw my flock of pigeons, and the little white one that I love. (He's down on the lower right)

No Nellie, I won't play in the snow with you

night snow

The snow is annoying, but it's pretty.
Nellie and Boomer out in the snow at night

Stream of consciousness/free association time:
I'm watching Napoleon Dynamite. I love it when the underdog wins.

Geoff and I both have had car problems the past two days. Yesterday, he got a flat tire. Today, my car wouldn't start in a parking lot. I got it going finally, but it sounds like it needs a new starter....again.

Tomorrow, we are going to Swami and Swamette's yurt for homemade spaghetti, a tradition in this family. Swamette's mother, Swametti, is Italian and she makes the best sauce and meatballs in the world. I will take pictures, and you can imagine how good it tastes.

Napoleon Dynamite is over. Now I am watching The Miracle Worker.

The cats knocked over the bird cage today. It's not like they have anything else to do down here.
Oh, I'm boring myself. I am off to see what everyone else has been up to.

Your last line is a hoot! I've had many of those days, too, Susan. Sometimes I even hesitate to click "publish", LOL!

Bored cats lead to a little trouble, ey?

Your ice photos are really superb, you know.

Will it ever stop snowing there???????

Snow again. Well at least it's not ice. And please don't send it this way.
I know exactly what you mean - like Mary said - I hate when I bore myself, that means I'm going to bore you. But in your case I don't get bored. You always have something interesting to say.
Mmmmm - enjoy spags at Swamette's tomorrow. Nothing like someone who knows how to make good homemade sauce, is there. Have fun!

How can you say nothing happened yesterday? Brittany Spears shaved her head - film at 11. The "news" shows are going crazy over this major breaking story. It even bumped the Anna Nicole controversy. (heavy sarcasm)

Soemthing Good happened to me yesterday. (insert smug face here) While doing my Great Backyard Bird Count, I had 2 new Yard Birds - 2 Rusty Blackbirds and 2 Fox Sparrows! (neener, neener, neener) Both were first for my yard and firsts for this year. It has been a really long time since I have seen Rusty Blackbirds, too.

Here's hoping for a more exciting Sunday for you.
