A cold and snowy Christmas Eve and Christmas day. I guess you know you are getting old when you like it but you don't want out in it.
We don't have to go anywhere so we are happy inside.
A Northern Flicker has been visiting the suet feeder for the past month or so. He is so beautiful!
And the hummingbird is a faithful resident. It seems so weird seeing them with snow on the ground. We have been bringing the feeder inside at night to keep it from freezing.
This year's Buche de Noel was made by Michael. My work schedule was pretty full last week so he pitched in and did the honors. This thing is heavenly. The frosting and cake has Kahlua in it. I posted the recipe a few years ago. Sadly, we lost the little Cardinal bird that we always decorated it with - we think it was lost in the move. And we have nothing with red berries in the garden. I will have to remedy that. Michael had some tiny little birds from his craft supplies and came up with nice decorations. Merry Christmas everyone!
