I am grateful because this year, I get to feed the birds during winter. I haven’t been able to do that since leaving my home. I kept the cedar bird feeder in my trunk all this time in hopes of being able to do it again. I’ve seen the usual: cardinals, blue jays, sparrows, tufted titmouse (song here), nuthatch, I haven’t seen the black cap chickadee nor the junco that I used to see at my house. Watching the birds is the best winter therapy — no pills needed.
I made my gluten free pumpkin pie last night with Bob’s Red Mill rice flour pie recipe. No, I don’t get any kickbacks from the company…I just really like the way the crust tastes with the pumpkin. Better than wheat!
I thought I was going to escape the holiday blues this year…but alas…
And to the Native Americans, who see this holiday as a day of mourning…all is not lost.
Hope you have a full tummy and friends/family around today. Bless those that don’t.
