This morning as I was waking up, I had the local news on and they said this was the coldest day so far this year.... I went outside and took a picture of the thermometer on the side of our garage. It read -18* F. This was around 7am.

Then I took a picture of the little cement birdhouse that my DH's Great Grandfather made for his mother when she was a small girl. He made one for all her sisters. We still have...a precious memory.. See below:

One of our pleasures is watching the birds at the feeder.

We build a Sun Room a few years ago and it has many brought hours of pleasure for us...

Some more pictures of our view...

    The sunroom is a 4-seasoned room as we have heat and a small air-conditioner in it. Since it faces the south, in the winter, if the sun is out, we can turn off the heat as it warms up the room so nicely, however since this is such a terrible cold winter, haven't spent quite as much time in it.
    And in the summer, if it it gets in the high 90's or 100's, we also don't use it as much, but much of the time we can.

    During extreem hot or cold weather, the only time we open it up is if we have family gatherings to make more room..... emoticon

    # 3,4,5 pictures are beautiful Wendy you took. The first two Brrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Us too.

    Nice you can sit there and enjoy the bird in your sun room. Nice in the Spring time as well.

    Maybe too hot in summer is it? Or it is air-conditioned? I do presume when it is summer your out in your garden and walks. So you really don't need to sit but in the early mornings in summer will be nice. Glad you have better eye sight now. They say your eyes see a whole new bright world. Colors are radiant.

    I am happy it is all over for you. I see you have room for plants in your sun-room.

    That is delightful!

    emoticon that you are able to blog again...with better eyesight! We love to watch the birds we feed as well...You have a very pretty scene to enjoy and a cosy room to be in while looking out at your lovely surroundings. We live in rural Nova Scotia and such scenes are appreciated by us too. God's handiwork, and all His flying feathered creatures, are so beautiful! emoticon

    Very nice picture story. I miss the winters. Since moving to Phoenix, we don't see this in real life anymore.
