Another Crow ? Day 9

Today has definitely been a day for crows. The snow was here when I awoke at 3 A.M.
I couldn't go back to sleep right away so I watched it coming down for a while and worried about my DS getting home from work at 6. He has a 35 mile commute. He is a good driver under these conditions from living in Idaho. But driving in South Carolina is a whole new ball game.

It took him almost an hour and a half to get home but he arrived safely. He had to go back tonight and left at 4  o'clock. There will probably be black ice in the morning.

We have 2 small birdfeeders on the front porch and have had a lot of finches and cardinals, some doves and some small sparrows come to eat. This morning we had a lot of crows visit. The whole porch was covered and they were fighting over the seed. The small birds and the cardinals didn't get anything. Later this afternoon I filled the feeders again and they got to eat.

Day 9 selection for The Crazy Fifteen Challenge was Ida Mae Crow by The Goode Huswife. I am stitching her as a companion to Ira Ray Crow. I actually got a bit done while watching the weather updates and the crows outside .

I am signing off for now and going to snuggle up with Buffy and Abbey. I amm having a problem with Buffy. She refuses to go out in the snow. She hates it.

I'm amazed at how much snow you're having down there, Bonnie! We are due to get some today, too, but we're very used to it in PA...

Love the photo of all the birds waiting their turn for the bird feeder. And Ida Mae is also in my "must be stitched some time in 2011" pile--so cute :)
