KATHY'S CAFE


The weather today was crazy... sun, clouds, snow, sun, clouds, snow.  We got just a dusting.  Nothing to be concerned about.  But I would look out of the window and it would be bright sun.  Then it would cloud up and snow.  As soon as I would go to the window to look at the snow it would stop and the sun would come out again.

I have been putting out seed for the birds.  The squirrels seem to like the sunflower seeds that fall out of the feeder.  My brother Larry has set up in his yard a few feeders for the birds and a red wagon with seed and peanuts for the birds and squirrels.  He posts lots of pictures of them.  He calls his yard "The Cafe."  Now that he and his wife Kim have moved, he is setting up a new one -- the new Cafe.  So when I saw all the excitement at mine I decided to call it "Kathy's Cafe."

 The squirrel in the tree.


Hi little squirrel!
 
 Lots of sparrows.

 Looks like the squirrel found a sunflower seed.



 Look how polite these sparrows are.  They are all lined up to take their turn at the feeder.

And here's a little video I made for you.

Thank you to everyone that was concerned about my health.  I was concerned too!  But after a good long sleep I was feeling much better and today I am feeling fine.  I don't know if it was MSG, salt, or the sweetened iced tea, but I'm betting it was the tea.  I've eaten there for years and never had a bad reaction.  The tea tasted different this time so I think they sweetened it with Equal.  Well, we will see since I am going back there this Saturday with my friends who want to take me out for my birthday.

I am still celebrating Chinese New Year.  Tonight I made fried rice for dinner.  I know what goes into my fried rice.  It's all good.  I know I want to make peanut noodles this week too.  Maybe tomorrow for lunch.

Have a good night everyone.

Kathy

    1. It isn't hard to do a video on youtube, but it sure took me a while to figure it out. Just keep trying. The first thing is to get your own channel. I made mine private because I just use it to load things I want to put on my blog. Then I watched youtube videos on how to use it! Ha, ha1

  3. Love your Cafe! I also feed sparrows & found they are very courteous,sometimes dropping something to the ground for those waiting there. It's peaceful just watching them.How come humans can't get along like that? Glad to hear you're feeling better.I like the street lamp!Stay warm!

  4. Beautiful pictures. Most people get mad about squirrels eating the bird feed, but hey! A squirrel has to eat, too. ;)

    1. I've learned my lesson. From now on I drink water. That's what I usually order at a restaurant but I felt like having iced tea. I'm really not supposed to drink any caffeine anyway.
