Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Here in Michigan we are used to long cold winters with a lot of snow. This year has been different. We really did not get much snow until the end of December. Well here we are in January and we got our full share. I actually am enjoying it, mainly because I don't have to go out in it if I don't want to. Today would be wonderful for a drive as its sunny, very cold and crisp.........but we had a storm and the roads are bad.
Yesterday Gerry went out with the snow blower he had a lot of help from Tristen.

Tristen wants to help him, but, well as Gerry was going along with the blower, Tristen was going behind knocking down the banks. Gerry is shoveling so Tristen figures he is in charge of the snow blower

It really doesn't take that long to do it. The drive takes the longest. It was still snowing and blowing and bitter cold but Tristen was glad to be outside even if Gerry wasn't

Look at his red nose. He wanted to push but it was too heavy with all the snow.

The sun is out today and the birds are all happy and chattering at the feeders. I have had to fill those up 3 times a day this week. The Crows have got through two loaves of bread and I have been putting peanut butter on it for should visit my garden blog for some more bird pictures.

Hi Janice, I was thinking of you living in a state which has severe Winters, and here I am moaning about the cold, yet it made it to 50 degrees today LOL.
Glad to read you made the soup, and more importantly enjoyed it.
I eat cornbread, but do not crave it like my husband does, being a Southerner, myself I would prefer beans on toast :)
Stay warm dear friend !
