Here Come Bert and Ernie!

Bert and Ernie, Sesame Street stars, have always brought joy and smiles to our house.

When our kids were little, they were a regular part of their lives.

Now I have grandkids, (how did that happen?), and ol' Bert and Ernie are still around for them.

They are old faithfuls.

I bought a talking, snoring Ernie who convincingly says, "I'm sleepy."

Wearing adorable bunny slippers, he nods off to dreamland while singing "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star."

Guess what?

When he sleeps, his little chest rises up and down while he also snores.

It's hilarious to see.

Munching in the Chill....

Lots of birdies in our yard daily enjoy new seeds we bought.

They are nut 'n berry.

We bought them in a special wild bird store.

A college professor who teaches, among other classes, ornithology, recommended nut 'n berry seeds and they do seem to attracting more of our feathered friends.

However, the roof of the bird feeder is quite frosty these snowy New England winter days.

Pretty soon the piled on snow may reach to the sky, like a chilly jack-in-the-beanstalk.

Popsickles for the "boidies?"

After their munching, the birds are welcome to take a sip from the heated birdbath.

(I painted an iron bird in the bath a bright colored red.)

p.s. Since I wrote this post, a couple of days ago, we had a bout of warmer weather and the snowy "roof" of the bird feeder is now history!

There are no signs of daffodils here yet but at least we can see the top of the bird feeder!  Ha!

                 DO YOU FEED THE BIRDS?

The Beauty of a Blushing Rose

A blushing pink rose nestled inside white baby's breath sits in a vase in the center of the kitchen table.

This precious gift of Mother Nature was given to me by my sweet hubs on Valentine's Day.

Simple, cherished and perfect in every way, the rose is a symbol of love.

Have you ever really looked inside the gentle folds of a rose?

Only God could have created such a magnificent flower.

Even its fragrance touches the heart.

May your own heart be very blessed on this day.
