January Doldrums

Synonyms: gloom, low spirits, inactivity, or listlessness

Hmmm. Maybe a severe case of cabin fever?
Sunshine and blue skies should help as soon as the frost is gone. Warmer temperatures would also help! 

I've been entertaining myself with hummingbirds--now that would be a great warm weather activity. Here's a picture of two eggs in a nest, but am not sure if these two are actually the ones that a rehabber has cared for since the mother disappeared.
The eggs hatched December 29 and today are out of the nest learning to fly in their enclosure. Here are some links if you would like to see this because after trying for almost an hour I can not get the video to load.
Feeding the two, Ana and Pavan:

You will be surprised at how their beaks grow longer and how quickly they mature.

Please enjoy!♥♫

Aurora Borealis

Recently people of Colorado might have been able to see the Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis. It was cloudy here that night, so no such luck. But here is an amazing video that I found this morning while checking out my weather. It is almost five minutes and has some beautiful music to accompany the sights.

If I ever have a "bucket list", seeing this phenomenon in person would be close to the top of the list.

January Book Club

During December our book was our choice and then in January we'd share our selection.
 A Fine Romance was my pick.
When this book had arrived in late October I started it right away. But it was put aside as daily life was taking my attention.

Late in December I knew Book Club was soon so I let things slide and restarted the book. I loved the book so much that it may be the first book I wanted to read again after I was finished. Just like the time we returned home after visiting Great Britain...if someone had given me a ticket the next day I would have repacked and returned!!

This is a book that won't be posted on PaperBack Swap. If you would like to visit England, you'll enjoy this book.
