Today started as usual with my morning walk. It was -1C (30F) when I set out. I had a bit of sun but clouds were gathering.

After breakfast since we still had a bit of sun left, Gordon and I decided to go to Jack Pine Trail for a while. We had a nice walk and on our way back there was a little girl with her grandmother on the trail. The little girl had sunflower seeds in her hand and the chickadees and nuthatches were landing on her hand and taking the seeds. It's nice to see kids that are quiet in the woods.

Chickadees land everywhere-this one is on Gordon's hat
This little girl had up to three birds on her hand at one time today
I had a couple of errands to run so I dropped Gordon at the house and went on my way.
I also took Nancy's dog, Max for a walk this afternoon. It's been a long time since I've walked a dog!
Since today is Nancy's birthday, I had purchased a sirloin roast with baby red potatoes to cook for her birthday dinner. It's been ages since I've cooked a good cut of meat. Usually it's something that goes into the crock pot. It turned out quite well. Since neither of us are supposed to eat flour products I had bought Nancy a key lime tart and we put a candle in it and I sang Happy Birthday. Probably not the highlight of her day!
