I noticed some Quail that were in my neighbor's yard looking outside my window. They come in groups, and you can see how funny they are, gathering, and following one after the other.
Another day, I noticed a different group of them. The California Quail spends most of their time on the ground. They usually fly only short distances when they need to reach shelter or to escape danger. They feed on the ground, and you can sometimes find them feeding at the sides of the roads. These were very plump ones, and look like they are pregnant, but they are males, which you can tell by their distinctive feathers on top of their head.
The road workers do an excellent job here when it snows clearing the paths for drivers, on the highways and in the neighborhoods. One got stuck right in front of my house, and he was there for awhile trying to get out. I felt so bad for him sitting in the freezing cold. I was about to bring him a hot cup of coffee, when he maneuvered his way out, and was on his way.
The sun came out, and it's always so pretty to see the snow sparkling from the sunlight.
Remember the pork roast my brother-in-law gave me? I cooked it like my mother-in-law used to, covering it with oil and spices, and it turned out delicious, until the very last bite. Baked beans on the side.
I made her potato salad too, and added six eggs. I know eggs are pricey right now, but it's just not the same without the eggs.
I love pink and red around Valentine's Day. I saw this coffee at the store, and brought it home. Sooooo good.
It was a nice surprise to see these chocolates at the store, and they were calling my name. Hershey's Roses Kisses!
When I was in grade school, I used to love to send out and receive the little Valentine cards on school days. Through the years, I would send them to my kids, even when they were grown, and now I get to send them to my grandkids. This year, I went with Bluey cards, cause they love Bluey shows! The box came with the cards, stickers, and hearts, so it will be a fun project for the kids to work on.
And I came across these Valentines from when I was in grade school. Yes, I keep old special things. They must be over 50 years old. Is that vintage haha?
There were two men outside the grocery store selling wooden plaques with Bible verses. Some of them were small, and others were large, and I ended up buying a large one. There were dozens, and I was there for a long time browsing through them all. It seemed they were getting a bit impatient, and wanted me to just buy one. But I wanted to get just the right one, so I kept looking. Finally, I found the one that spoke to me, and bought it.
