Enjoy Winter

With such an unusually mild winter here.... so far.... I decided to put my summertime thinking chair back on our little covered porch today.  It's a lovely place to have a cup of coffee and listen to the woodsy world wake up in the morning.  I have a 3/4 length down coat that keeps me cozy.  Notice the beady little eyes watching out the door.... my corgi, Sadie, doesn't like to miss out on anything.

Yesterday my husband put up this feeding tray for the birds outside my kitchen window.  It is fun to watch them come so close.  The ever-faithful chickadees and nuthatches have visited already.  The squirrels aren't a bit shy.  I am hoping for blue jays and cardinals, but I expect we will need some foul weather to bring them in.

And to round out a perfect winter day there is nothing like a fresh pie.  This time I used apples, pears and cranberries.... a wonderful combination!  I add cinnamon and nutmeg to this pie.  Try it!

Ours in France has been very mild too - a little alarming as we had such a long hot summer. Last time it was like this, we ended up with a epidemic of 'blue tongue' spread by gnats and mozzies - we lost a sheep to it, but thousands of sheep and goats died in Limousin.

Your chair looks to be in a very comfortable place with great views of the woods and animals - nice place for thinking!
