Oh my goodness it is cold! It actually feels like it is stealing inside with each breath you take and robbing the next one away! And bright, the snow reflecting off the snow and ice is beautiful! Glistening trees and bushes out my back window. The joy of the day is watching the sun grow brighter and the birds who are coming to my feeder. The poor robins who misjudged the weather, they look so cold. The bright red of the cardinal, the blue jays and the little wrens and sparrows. They are all hovering around the feeder, alternating between nourishment and the protection of the holly bush from the cold wind. What a beautiful day!
