Mornin' ~ Through the Kitchen Window

19 degrees this mornin' and not a cloud in the sky. An occasional puff of wind will move the lilac tree branches.

It's still half dark; the eastern horizon is slowly changing hues...mainly orange. The silhouette of Hat Butte stands there waiting patiently for the sun to rise and shine on its rocky bluff.

All of the dogs have been outside to do their mornin' duties...except the Princess Cindy Sue who is still tucked into her bed all warm and snuggly with her fleece blanket. Soon she too will have to brave the cold mornin'.

The first lil' bird shows up in the lilac tree...not long after, another and then another join him. They seem to be thinking of spring lately the way they've been fluttering in and out of the bird houses hanging in the lilac tree.

The view from the kitchen window.
Bird feathers and all from when they fly into the window!
Silly lil' birds.

It's still early...another half a cup of coffee will do as I watch the light grow stronger.

The beginning of another blessed day is upon us~time to go...critters to feed.
