First of all, thanks to everyone for their kind comments yesterday. I rarely get that drained, defeated feeling, and all of you really helped me pull myself out of the funk I was in. Today, I'm ready to go again, having reminded myself that we lose some, but we help place a lot more.
It is a very dark and dreary morning here. At 10:30 AM, it's just reaching the point where I don't have to turn on the lights when I move from room to room.
The birds are crowding the feeders, as they have done for the past few days. It's as if they have realized that Winter is coming, and they had better start fattening up.
Well, you can't see them very well in that shot, so I guess you'll just have to take my word for it!
My microwave died last night, so today is going to be devoted to finding a new one. It was old, and didn't owe me a thing, so I'm not too upset. In fact, ever since I set a bag of microwave popcorn smoldering a few years ago (and had to air out the house in the middle Winter), I've been waiting for it to die, because the smoke stained the inside badly and wouldn't come out. Every time I opened the thing I got a little case of the icks, even though I knew it was perfectly clean.
