Since Sunday, temperatures were in the 10s and 20s and didn’t reach the freezing point for over 72 hours. My critters and little feathered friends were coming frequently to the feeders. The birds looked like little puff balls, and they didn’t mind sharing their seeds with the squirrels. Today, we finally reached more pleasant 45ºF.

“Oops, I almost lost my balance! Phew!”
